Cry In the Night by Colleen Coble
"Colleen writes a satisfying and engaging mystery, with clues and twists aplenty and provides a journey of heartache and discovery."
"If ever was a man cut out to be a father, it was Kade Matthews."
No one knows this more than his wife, Bree, and she hopes desperately to be able to fulfil their dream of having a baby together, as well as provide a sister or brother for her son Davy.
When Bree and her search and rescue dog, Samson, discover a baby hidden in the woods, Bree is instantly smitten but knows they must search for the baby's mother. Kade is keeping a worrying secret from Bree and is concerned over her attachment to a baby she will have to give up. Their marriage starts to feel the strain.
As the pressure of their infertility mounts, the biggest threat to their happiness arrives in the return of Bree's first husband, a man everyone believed dead and who is now determined to win back his son.
Colleen Coble takes readers back to Rock Harbour in Cry In The Night and turns up the heat on her beloved heroine, Bree Matthews, husband Kade and young Davy. As always, she weaves death and destruction upon the tiny Michigan community as they come to terms with a killer on the loose, kidnapped babies and a potential environmental crisis.
Colleen pens the emotions of her characters with a deft hand, drawing
the reader into Bree's freefall into fear and confusion as she struggles
with her failure to provide Kade with a baby and the shocking implications
of her dead husband's return upon their marriage. In Kade, we see a strong,
dependable man begin to panic and consider the unthinkable in an effort
to retain his job and young Davy, growing up and straining against his
mother's love. Colleen writes a satisfying and engaging mystery, with clues
and twists aplenty and provides a journey of heartache and discovery for
Bree and Kade. Rock Harbour fans will not be disappointed in the slightest
and I applaud Colleen for her moving and genuine conclusion to the story.
