Review: Twilight at Blueberry Barrens
`Twilight at Blueberry Barrens` is a contemporary mystery/suspense novel written by Colleen Coble. I received it in ebook form from Net Galley. This book has a who-done-it theme to it. A family is endangered of being killed and there is an uncle who recently escaped out of prison. Could this be a time for the female protagonist, Kate Mason, to fall in love?
The setting is the top of the Mermaid Rock cliffs. Kate Mason is enjoying the sun peeking over the water bathing everything in a pink halo, and the dense salt in the air. Kate and her sister, Claire, had hiked to the shoals looking for puffin birds. That's when they saw two bodies who must have fallen off the cliff. This is where the story picks up.
There are several plots and subplots. Were the people who fell murdered, and if so how? One of the most exciting is the family of puffins. In the meantime, will Kate's aplastic anemia make an appearance, again? Her father has escaped from prison and is on the prowl. Is he the one who murdered the couple?
It took me several days to read and I was left hanging. I wish there had been more talk of God, forgiveness, and restitution. I felt like there were a lot of rabbit trails with no ending.
