Twilight at Blueberry Barrens

Goodreads: “I need you to keep these girls safe . . .”

Kate Mason has devoted herself to caring for her family’s blueberry barrens. But after her fields stop producing fruit, she’s forced to come up with alternative ways to make a living.

Renting out the small cottage on her property seems an obvious choice, but it won’t be enough. When entrepreneur Drake Newham shows up looking not only for a place to rent but also for a nanny for his two nieces, it’s almost too good to be true. And maybe it is—because Drake brings with him dangerous questions about who might be out to kill his family.

The more time Kate spends with Drake and the girls, the more difficult it becomes to hide her attraction to him. But a family crisis isn’t exactly the ideal time to pursue a romance.

Meanwhile, Kate learns that her uncle—in prison for murder—has escaped. Add to that a local stalker who won’t leave her alone, and Kate is looking over her shoulder at every turn. With threats swirling from multiple directions, she wonders if her blueberry fields will ever flourish again . . . or if this twilight is her last.

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in a series and while this book centers around a different character than the first two, I would still read these in a row, so pause what you are doing and go grab the first one - The Inn at Ocean's Edge.  

This book centers around Kate Mason who has forgone her own dreams in order to put her family first.  Her sister lives close by and plays a big part in the book and she was the main character in book one, again go read that one!!  Kate is living on her family's property and wondering what is next for herself when Drake Newham shows up with his two nieces in tow.  Drake is trying to keep his nieces safe and also take a much-needed break from work and Kate's guest house and attention for his nieces is exactly what they all need.  

As we all know from the beginning that we will end up with a happily ever after but the twists and turns to get there will be worth it completely.  At one point, I may have felt as though there was just a little too much mystery, but because it all resolved in the end, I could keep it straight and enjoy the ride.  

I was already a Colleen Coble fan before starting this book and was excited to complete the series, so grab this one if you have already read book one and two and feel the joy of completion.    

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
