Strands of Truth
Suspense melds with romance as the past meets the present in this engrossing new novel from USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble.
Strands of Harper Taylor’s childhood are resurfacing—but will the truth save her . . . or pull her under?
Harper Taylor is used to being alone. Her mother passed away in a car accident when she was an infant, she never knew who her father was, and now even the widowed grandmother who raised her is gone. She’s done just fine investing her marine biology degree and her energy into her pen shell business.
The last thing she expects is for the DNA test she took to reveal a likely half-sister. And when she and Annabelle meet, there are striking similarities in their stories. Is it just coincidence that both their mothers died tragically without revealing Harper and Annabelle’s father’s name?
When Harper’s business partner has a stroke, his son Ridge steps in to help. Before long, he's spending more time with her than the business would dictate . . . and Harper finds she doesn’t mind in the least.
When yet another tragedy strikes close to home, though, Harper and Ridge realize that the secrets of the past can’t stay there. They’ll have to unravel Harper’s past before they can secure their future.
My thoughts (LVH): STRANDS OF TRUTH released in the fall of 2019, but I just now had time to sit and read it. As I expected, once I picked it up, I didn't want to put it down! Good thing I had completed my work deadline as I read the entire book in mere hours.
I am familiar with the romantic suspense genre and I knew that even though events in the story seemed unrelated they would all tie together at the end. However, the motive and the "bad guy" caught me by surprise.
There is a semi-strong faith message, but more conservative readers might be offended by a soft swear word.
I enjoy Ms. Coble's romantic suspense and look forward to her new book releasing in March 2020. Ms. Coble is a must read author for me.
