Beneath Copper Falls by @colleencoble Book #Review

Synopsis:
USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble returns to her beloved Rock Harbor—but both danger and romance hide in this idyllic small town.

Dana Newell has just moved to Rock Harbor to take a job as a sheriff's dispatcher and is settling in next door to Bree and Kade Matthews. The abusive relationship she left behind seems a distant memory in this perfect place.

Her first day on the job, Dana receives a call from her friend Allyson who screams "He's going to kill me too" before the phone goes dead. Dana immediately dispatches a deputy, but it's too late. Allyson's death is ruled an accident, but Dana just doesn't believe it. She knows Allyson—an investigative reporter—was researching a new story. Did someone want to keep her quiet?

Dana continues to look into the accident with the help of Bree and also Allyson's cousin Boone. Romance quickly blooms between Dana and Boone but the game is much more complex than either of them imagined. When Dana's ex-fiance locates her, she's caught in the middle. It’s a game of cat and mouse as she and Boone fight to catch one killer while evading another. 




My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Once again we are reunited with the wonderful people of Rock Harbor.  This time, Bree's old friend Dana has moved back home to Rock Harbor to escape her abusive husband.  The entire town rallies to protect her. But when her friend Allyson, an investigative reporter, is murdered.  She begins to wonder if Allyson got too close to the truth.  With the help of her new friend Boone, she uncovers crazy dark family secrets.

This book took me completely by surprise.  I thought it would be a simple romance with a predictable mystery. Do not be misled! This is a Christian novel with an intense mystery that will make your head spin.  If you love mysteries, this book is for you.
