A romantic, Christmas wedding at her seaside hotel gives Delilah a chance to shine with her unique gifts. But will her light be snuffed out before the bride and groom say “I do”?
As manager of the Tidewater Inn, Delilah Carter has been planning a spectacular Christmas wedding for her friends at the grand hotel overlooking the ocean. While picking up still more twinkly lights and some last-minute groceries for the reception dinner, a huge truck runs her off the freezing, wet roads into the dark night. Her car stops just short of an enormous tree and the truck speeds off into the night. Delilah escapes with her life and has almost convinced herself the whole thing was an accident, but then she begins to receive threatening phone calls. With the wedding just hours away, she’s distracted and anxious. Then Sheriff Tom Bourne stops by the inn and volunteers to help.
Tom has always had a soft spot for Delilah, and he’s determined to protect her. But he is pulled away by a bizarre Christmas stunt that has the neighborhood reeling, and Delilah is attacked again.
Will Delilah have to cancel the Christmas wedding at Tidewater Inn? And will Tom’s protection be enough to save Delilah from the shadowy figure looming in the background?
My thoughts: ALL IS BRIGHT is the newest book in Ms. Coble's series set at Tidewater Inn. Fans will enjoy reconnecting with some previous characters and getting to know Delilah and Tom. It was very sweet the way Tom went out of his way to get the perfect Christmas gift for Delilah. I know Ms. Coble writes romantic suspense, but it still took me by surprise when Delilah was rear-ended and knocked into the ocean. I wondered who was behind it, and why. I never did guess who did it, but I did have some *wrong* ideas. A Very sweet novella, quickly read, but satisfying. Recommended.
