The View from Rainshadow Bay By Colleen Coble Review
After her husband, Jack, dies in a climbing incident, Shauna has only her five-year-old son and her helicopter charter business to live for. Every day is a struggle to make ends meet and she lives in constant fear of losing even more than she already has.
When her business partner is murdered, his final words convince Shauna that she’s in danger too. But where can she turn? Zach Bannister was her husband’s best friend and is the person she blames for his death. She’s barely spoken to him since. But right now he seems her only hope for protecting her son.
Zach is only too happy to assuage his guilt over Jack’s death by helping Shauna any way he can. But there are secrets involved dating back to Shauna’s childhood that more than one person would prefer to stay hidden.
In The View from Rainshadow Bay, suspense, danger, and a longing to love again ignite amid the gorgeous lavender fields of Washington State.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- The book has a molasses quality as it is super slow flow and sticks to your mind. While I found the writing to be easy to get into, it just did not have the grace of a good character or the speed of a good mystery. I was in a hurry to finish this and not because it was the best. If I was not reviewing it, I would have put it down middle way through. Other books by this author are much better, so maybe the work is just spread too thin.
