Title: Secrets at Cedar Cabin
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Bailey Flemming is now on the run from the people who murdered her mother, and the only place she can think to go to is her mother’s hometown of Lavender Tides. While this small, idyllic town looks to be the safe haven that Bailey needs, the dead bodies that show up in the yard of the cabin that she’s staying in proves otherwise.
In the midst of this, she meets FBI agent Lance Phoenix, who thinks that this cabin and maybe even Bailey play a part in his sister’s disappearance over four years ago. An investigation leads to uncovered secrets that point to the murder of Bailey’s mom and disappearance of Lance’s sister as somehow being connected in this web of lies.
Colleen Coble’s newest novel, Secrets at Cedar Cabin, was so infused with intrigue and suspense, that I found it very much unputdownable.
While I’m not normally a huge fan of multiple points of view, but I thought that Coble executed the POV’s with much skill and I was able to see that they all connected somehow. Along that same line, I also don’t normally enjoy seeing things from the “bad guy’s” perspective, but once again, Coble made it work and I didn’t know what was behind it all until the last chapters.
I’ve often found that, in suspense stories, even if they are Christian, there really isn’t much of a mention of faith. That was different in this book. While it wasn’t overflowing with mentions of God and faith, I enjoyed seeing how the characters learned to rely on God in the midst of difficult circumstances.
Last, but not least, I loved the theme of truth woven throughout the story. I loved seeing how Bailey slowly learned to trust people again and it all really reminded me that, while we may not think our actions have consequences, even the smallest of lies can affect someone.
All in all, this was a wonderful story and I definitely recommend it to anyone.
