Cry in the Night by Colleen Coble


The highly anticipated novel that delivers what romantic suspense fans have long awaited-the return to Rock Harbor.
Bree Nichols gets the shock of her life when her husband-presumed dead-reappears.

Bree Nichols and her search and rescue dog Samson discover a crying infant in the densely forested woods outside of Rock Harbor, Michigan. Against objections from her husband, Kade, who knows she'll become attached, Bree takes the baby in. Quickly she begins a search for the mother-presumably the woman reported missing just days earlier.
While teams scour the forests, Bree ferrets out clues about the missing woman. But she soon discovers something more shocking: Bree's former husband-long presumed dead in a plane crash-resurfaces. Is he really who he says he is? And should she trust him again after all these years?
An engaging, romantic suspense novel from critically-acclaimed author Colleen Coble.

My Thoughts:
Cry in the Night is a continuation of the Rock Harbor series. I haven't read the previous books but I never felt lost or just thrown into the story. This book can very easily stand alone because Colleen does a fantastic job of filling in the missing pieces without going overboard.

This book is full of mystery and suspense, without the romance. Bree is a strong and independent woman; Davy is her son who is getting to the age where he wants to be treated less like a child; and Kade is Bree's new husband after her first husband died (in a previous book). When they start seeing things that just can't be real this new family could be torn apart in an instant. With so many strange things happening (missing babies, murder, suspicious people, a new mine), how can it all be tied together?

I loved how the story gave just enough information to see what is going on but also kept me wondering and trying to figure out "who dunnit." It was a page turner because the characters would get so close to being able to figure it all out but then would just miss it.

If you like mystery, suspense and action you're in for a treat!
