The highly anticipated novel that delivers what romantic suspense fans have long awaited-the return to Rock Harbor.

Bree Nichols gets the shock of her life when her husband-presumed dead-reappears.

Bree Nichols and her search and rescue dog Samson discover a crying infant in the densely forested woods outside of Rock Harbor, Michigan. Against objections from her husband, Kade, who knows she'll become attached, Bree takes the baby in. Quickly she begins a search for the mother-presumably the woman reported missing just days earlier.
While teams scour the forests, Bree ferrets out clues about the missing woman. But she soon discovers something more shocking: Bree's former husband-long presumed dead in a plane crash-resurfaces. Is he really who he says he is? And should she trust him again after all these years?
An engaging, romantic suspense novel from critically-acclaimed author Colleen Coble.

Return to Rock Harbor

"Alas poor Bree" is what you will utter while you read this book! We're taken back to the familiar setting of Rock Harbor where we get to meet up with old friends again. I always like it when authors go back to their older series and give the reader another book to catch up again with everyone. This series is a favorite of mine as I love reading about the adventures of Bree and her wonderdog Samson. It was great to visit the area again and I enjoyed seeing all the characters interact and come to life.

This book had the best mystery story of the series and the most personal. I honestly do not know what I would have done in Bree's situation. I would have been as shocked as she was. I'm glad though she has Kade, as he is the perfect and the right man for her and David. It was also good to see what Laurie was up to and see her true feelings about the child she gave up for adoption. This book incorporated several issues such as baby buying, ethics issues, and spiritual legends. It's all wrapped up in a suspense story that tells us that we need to trust in God no matter what happens. The book does stand alone so if you haven't read any of the Rock Harbor series before, you won't be totally lost. However to get the full impact of the story, the other 3 books should be read. Hopefully this isn't the last we'll see of Bree, Kade and Samson. I feel like there's more of their stories just waiting to be told!
