About The Book
After her husband, Jack, dies in a climbing incident, Shauna has only her five-year-old son and her helicopter charter business to live for. Every day is a struggle to make ends meet and she lives in constant fear of losing even more than she already has.
When her business partner is murdered, his final words convince Shauna that she’s in danger too. But where can she turn? Zach Bannister was her husband’s best friend and is the person she blames for his death. She’s barely spoken to him since. But right now he seems her only hope for protecting her son.
Zach is only too happy to assuage his guilt over Jack’s death by helping Shauna any way he can. But there are secrets involved dating back to Shauna’s childhood that more than one person would prefer to stay hidden.
In The View from Rainshadow Bay, suspense, danger, and a longing to love again ignite amid the gorgeous lavender fields of Washington State.
It’s been a little while since I read a Colleen Coble novel, and I was glad I took a chance on this one by her. First of all, that cover. Can we say ‘cover love’? It’s absolutely gorgeous and eye catching, and that alone would have me wanting to read the book. Second, she did a magnificent job on creating a story that will pull the reader straight to the center.
Zach and Shauna are two beautifully chiseled, heart capturing characters. They both come to life among the pages of this novel. Their stories are heart wrenching, and bittersweet. Both suffered a loss, both need each other, even if Shauna doesn’t want to trust Zach. When things take a twistful turn, it’s edge of your seat and late night reading, trying to see what Ms. Coble has in store for her characters.
Ms. Coble has created a story that is romantic, suspenseful, and inspirational. All things of which make a fantabulous read! Her style is unique, her words wrap you up and keep you hooked until the last page is turned, and the gentle messages from God are entwined with the stories of Zach and Shauna.
This is definitely a book that I will be recommending to all with 4 star praises. It’s beautifully moving, and a wonderful start to what’s sure to be a hit among her fans! Well done, Ms. Coble!
