The law is about justice—not grace. But perhaps ranger Annie Pederson can find a way to have both.
As if the last few months haven’t been hard enough—complete with threats on her life and the return of her first love, Jon—Annie has to figure out whether or not to believe a woman who claims to be her sister, Sarah, who was abducted twenty-four years ago at age five. Annie’s eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, has plenty of questions about what’s going on in her mother’s life—but there are some stones Annie doesn’t want uncovered.
As Annie grapples with how to heal the gulf between her and her would-be sister and make room in her daughter’s life for Jon, she’s professionally distracted by the case of yet another missing hiker in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A woman named Michelle Fraser has now been abducted, and though the woman’s estranged husband is at the top of their suspect list, Annie and her colleagues will need to dig deeper and determine whether these recent mysteries are truly as unrelated as they seem.
In this second novel of bestselling author Colleen Coble’s latest romantic-suspense series, Annie and Jon must fight for the future—and the family—that could once more be theirs.
I enjoyed Edge of Dusk, this first book in this series so much that I jumped at the chance to read the second installment and it did not disappoint. In this installment, Ranger Annie Pederson life picks up where it left off with her first love Jon. In addition, she’s trying to decide whether a woman claiming to be Sarah (her sister who disappeared 24 years ago) is who she says she is.
As she tries to bridge the gap with Sarah, she is distracted by another missing hiker in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Michelle has been abducted and her estranged husband it at the top of the suspect list. However, they need more information before they can solve the mystery.
As with the first book, I continue to really like Annie’s character. I also like her relationship with Jon. While it’s not easy, they are making a genuine effort to make it work and their teamwork makes for an engaging and multi-layered story that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.
The book is fast paced with twists and turns that keep readers guessing. I was engaged from start to finish and recommend this book to all romantic suspense lovers. I will anxiously be awaiting book 3!
