“I need you to keep these girls safe . . .”
Kate Mason has devoted herself to caring for her family’s blueberry barrens. But after her fields stop producing fruit, she’s forced to come up with alternative ways to make a living.
Renting out the small cottage on her property seems an obvious choice, but it won’t be enough. When entrepreneur Drake Newham shows up looking not only for a place to rent but also for a nanny for his two nieces, it’s almost too good to be true. And maybe it is—because Drake brings with him dangerous questions about who might be out to kill his family.
The more time Kate spends with Drake and the girls, the more difficult it becomes to hide her attraction to him. But a family crisis isn’t exactly the ideal time to pursue a romance.
Meanwhile, Kate learns that her uncle—in prison for murder—has escaped. Add to that a local stalker who won’t leave her alone, and Kate is looking over her shoulder at every turn. With threats swirling from multiple directions, she wonders if her blueberry fields will ever flourish again . . . or if this twilight is her last.
Set on the beautiful coast of Maine, Twilight at Blueberry Barrens brings together suspense, romance, and the hope that one day new life will come again.

- Review by Brittany at the Books and Biscuits Blog
Twilight at Blueberry Barrens builds on the previous books of the Sunset Cove, finally telling the story of Clare Dellamare’s twin sister, Kate. Ms. Coble utilizes her signature style of romantic suspense to bring the town of Colly Shoals, Maine, to life.
Overall, I thought that Twilight at Blueberry Barrens remained true to the style of the other books in Ms. Coble’s Sunset Cove series. Most of the series has been relatively enjoyable to read. However, I found this particular novel to be somewhat unbelievable, due to the sheer density of “suspense” events and number of characters who were all threatening Kate and Drake’s families. In general, Ms. Coble’s contemporary works are admittedly slower and darker than many of the other books that I read. Regardless, she remains one of the most popular writers in the Christian romantic suspense genre. This is in large part due to her well-developed storylines and broad cast of characters that make for generally intriguing novels. Likewise, her ability to build compelling and inter-related novels makes her a fan favorite among Christian fiction readers.
