Harper Taylor is used to being alone—after all, she grew up in one foster home after another. Oliver Jackson finally took her under his wing when she was a runaway teenager, and now Harper pours her marine biology knowledge into Oliver’s pen shell research. But she’s never stopped wishing for a family of her own.
So when a DNA test reveals a half-sister living just two hours away, Harper is both hopeful and nervous. Over warm cinnamon rolls, Harper and Annabelle find striking similarities in their stories. Is it just a coincidence that both their mothers died tragically, without revealing Harper and Annabelle’s father’s name?
Oliver’s son Ridge still sees Harper as a troubled teen even all these years later. But when Oliver is attacked, Ridge and Harper find themselves working together to uncover dangerous secrets that threaten to destroy them all. They must unravel her past before they can have any hope for the future.
Suspense, romance, and generational secrets meld in this engrossing new novel from USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble.

Whew, if Colleen Coble isn’t known for writing some nail-biting suspense! I love how the author was able to weave the lives of multiple different characters into a web of mystery that demanded a answers. This was an easy book to read from cover to cover without putting it down.
Although this was not an actual line in the book, I found myself thinking on the phrase “desperate people do desperate things.” I won’t go into detail there because I don’t want to give any spoilers, but it had me thinking about how the actions and motives of people are often not far from their hearts.
Have you ever strongly disliked someone until you learned more of their story and compassion started to settle in? I really enjoyed following Ridge’s emotional journey in this story. Initially he felt at odds with Harper because he felt she was stealing his father’s love and attention away and his jealousy of her hardened his heart. It wasn’t until he took the time to learn about her past and her struggles, that his heart softened and he started to feel genuine affection towards her. I loved feeling like I was part of their journey.
With plenty of action and emotion this is a novel suspense fans are sure to love. I highly recommend it for a read 🙂
