Annie Pederson’s happily ever after is finally within sight . . . If she can stay alive long enough to grasp it.
Law enforcement officer Annie Pederson’s life has been rocked by tragedy, but things finally seem to be heading in the right direction. Her relationship with the love of her life—who’s also the biological father of her precious daughter—has never been better, and it looks like an engagement ring is in Annie’s future. She’s also slowly building back trust with her sister, Sarah, after a separation that lasted for decades.
When a man escapes law enforcement custody and Sarah’s safety is suddenly in question, Annie’s personal and professional lives once again merge. Meanwhile, her investigation of hikers who have gone missing in the remote woods of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula puts her in the crosshairs of a deadly game.
Now, Annie is the one being hunted. When she discovers the terrible truth about the men who are stalking her, she realizes that she’s in for the fight of her life if she’s going to redeem the sister she once lost, build the family she dreams of, and keep all those she loves safe.
Return to the beloved town of Rock Harbor in the final installment of the Annie Pederson trilogy by bestselling suspense author Colleen Coble.
This is probably the seventh or eight novel from Coble that I’ve read. She is queen for beginning her stories with jaw-dropping inciting incident. The first story in the Annie Pederson series was no exception. However, this one was. Break of Day, which is book two did not kick off with the same tenacity as the first story. But I was already invested in Annie and “Taylor’s” relationship.
Many of Taylor’s actions in this story caused me to pray that she was not Annie’s sister. She put Annie through a lot and that’s before the main event which included what she did to Annie’s daughter, Kyle. Our sweet little darling, who was loyal to a fault–when it came the dad who raised her and also to Taylor–was dupped! The choices that Taylor made and how Annie had to learn to forgive is on par with Christianity, and even softened my heart toward her. So kudos Mrs. Coble, you made me despise, and then sympathize with Taylor. Coble is a master at creating an antagonist, and she scored out of this world for making me reevaluate my feelings. I feel sorry for Taylor/Sarah and hope the Christian themes shine in the last installment because she has a lot more changing to do. But then again, God says to be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
