Review: Beneath Copper Falls by Colleen Coble
Book Description " Dana has already learned that love isn’t safe . . . but could it be different in Rock Harbor?
As a 911 dispatcher, Dana Newell takes pride in being calm in tough circumstances. In addition to her emotionally-charged career, she’s faced enough emergencies in her own life. She recently escaped her abusive fiancé to move to tranquil Rock Harbor where she hopes life will be more peaceful.
But the idyllic town hides more danger and secrets than it first appeared. Dana is continually drawn to her new friend Boone, who has scars inside and out. Then she answers a call at her job only to hear a friend’s desperate screams on the other end. Soon the pain in her past collides with the mysteries of her new home—and threatens to keep her from the future she’s always wanted."
Beneath Copper Falls is the newest book in the Rock Harbor series. It can work as a stand alone novel because it deals with new main characters Dana and Boone. If you read it as a stand alone you will get the complete story of Dana and Boone, you will just miss some of the back story of the other characters in Rock Harbor. I have read a few of the Rock Harbor series, but not all. It is one of my favorite series by Colleen Coble and I really need to go back and read the ones I missed.
Beneath Copper Falls is a faith based, romantic suspense novel. One of the things I like about Ms. Coble's books is that they are suspenseful with the romantic element without being overly gory or vulgar. I think that portions of the story were predictable, but she does try to throw some twists and turns in to keep you in suspense. There are definitely portions that are not realistic, but it is a story.
Overall I really enjoyed Beneath Copper Falls. I love the stories of Bree and Samson and was glad that another book was added to the series.
