All is Calm All is Bright by Colleen Coble is a set of novellas perfect for kicking up your holiday spirit.
The first, All is Calm, is based on characters from her Lonestar Series. Lauren Everman is wrongly accused and painfully rejected by her cousin, Tina. She returns to Bluebird Ranch, a place that once acted as her sanctuary as a child. There she hides to avoid the killer determined to silence her witness of his murderous acts.
Brendan Waddell returns to Bluebird Ranch to do some healing and life evaluating. It’s always proven to be a place of refuge for him but he can’t ignore the wrongful doings that somehow keep pointing in Lauren’s direction.
Together, Lauren and Brendan must find the real killer to clear Lauren’s name, if only they can keep her alive long enough to do it.
I absolutely loved this story and found myself teary eyed with the tenderness the couple shows toward an orphaned girl.
It’s a wonderful Christmas story streaked with suspense, mystery and folded together with budding romance. Colleen Coble is known for her incredible talent of storytelling and this novella is a taste of what her books bring.
All is Bright takes us back to the characters from Hope Beach and the Tidewater Inn. It’s a great tale of secrets exposed, hearts renewed and a killer who wants to destroy it all.
Delilah is content with her life, at least she thinks she is, but love is all around her and her biological clock is ticking. While helping Elin plan her wedding, Delilah finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer determined to exact his revenge. Sheriff Tom Bourne is out to stop the killer and protect Delilah.
Unexpectedly, two friends working together to bring the killer to justice, find themselves entangled in startling romance.
This story also had me teary eyed over Delilah’s magnificent Christmas gift.
All is Bright is a suspenseful tale that will have you flipping pages like crazy! Colleen Coble has once again, hit it out of the park with these delightful Christmas novellas.
