Title: Secrets At Cedar Cabin
Author: Colleen Coble
Genre: Romantic Suspense
About the book: It’s the third novel in a series about Bailey Flemming who is running for her life after her mother gets murdered, and Lance Phoneix who is looking for his sister after she ran away from home as a teenager.
I received a free copy from the publisher via BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
First impressions: The premise piqued my interest. I like the title and cover. I didn’t even realize this was the third book, and I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Characters: One drawback of not reading the rest of the series is I had a tough time keeping track of all the characters. Bailey and Lance are likeable though.
“Life had been coming at her from every direction…”
Writing: It’s told in the third person, alternating between various character’s viewpoints. The descriptions included a lot of adverbs.
While I enjoyed the suspense, I didn’t love all the romance. Some of the dialogue felt unrealistic or cliché, especially the romantic moments between Bailey and Lance.
The chapters are short and suspenseful. Many of them end on a cliffhanger. I enjoyed seeing the plot play out.
The novel sheds light on the issue of sex trafficking. It also references God and religion.
Final thoughts: The ending ties up loose ends. There’s even an epilogue. Although the book answers some lingering questions, the ending unfolded quickly.
If you like romantic suspense, Secrets At Cedar Cabin has a lot of both.
