Twilight at Blueberry Barrens

Twilight at Blueberry Barrens

“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.

Preorder Price of $4.99 for Twilight at Blueberry Barrens

Twilight at Blueberry Barrens 195 x 300It’s almost time to read Twilight at Blueberry Barrens, the final book in the Sunset Cove series. I can’t wait to share it with you! You can grab the digital version for only $4.99 from all the digital retailers. Go here for links to most of the retailers:

If you’d like to grab a physical copy, my publisher has teamed with to offer an unpublished scene from the series. Go here for that deal:

Brenda Novak had this to say about Twilight at Blueberry Barrens: “Incredible storytelling and intricately drawn characters. You won’t want to miss TWILIGHT AT BLUEBERRY BARRENS!”

It also received a STARRED review from Publishers Weekly! Love and murder pair up effectively in the second Sunset Cove page-turner (following Mermaid Moon). Kate Mason’s blueberry barrens have withered, so offering the cottage on her coastal Maine property to the intriguing Drake Newham and his two nieces offers an attractive alternative source of income for the summer. Playing nanny to the girls helps distract Kate from the trauma of having come across the bodies of Drake’s brother and sister-in-law, the girls’ parents, after an apparent murder-suicide. But Drake’s investigation into those suspicious deaths, along with the puzzling break-ins on her property—is it her escaped convict uncle or an unknown stalker?—keep Kate, and the reader, on edge. The mutual attraction between Kate and Drake is frustrated time and again by the dangers that keep cropping up. The tension, both suspenseful and romantic, is gripping, reflecting Coble’s prowess with the genre. Adding depth and contour to the drama are subtler subplots, most notably Kate’s long struggle with self-worth, complicated by her recent health issues. Her sister, Claire, proves instrumental to Kate’s emotional and spiritual healing. Fans of the series will love seeing Claire and her fiancé, Luke, play strong supporting roles in this installment.

Stormcatcher is Out!

Stormcatcher 300Many of you have been asking when the 3rd book in the Great Lakes Legends series would be out, and it’s now available! With its setting in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula it will take you away on vacation.

Here is a little about it:

Uncovering a modern-day crime scene was not how marine archaeologist Wynne Baxter expected to use her diving skills. Yet when handsome family friend Simon Lassiter fell under suspicion in the death of his cousin and former fiancée, Wynne vowed to help him learn the truth, even though it meant risking everything in Superior’s stormy waters.

But a tempest of a different kind was about to fall on the Lassiter family, and Wynne found herself caught up in the maelstrom. Whom could she trust as the clouds of suspicion and danger rolled in over her head?

Hope you enjoy it! ‎

RWR StatsMy buddy Denise Hunter sent this to me yesterday out of the current issue of the Romance Writers of America magazine. I’ve been stunned and disbelieving to be listed among some of my favorite general market authors like Nora Roberts, Debbie Macomber, Robyn Carr, and Brenda Novak. Wow!

Thank you for the way you share my books with your friends! It makes a huge difference!


CoffeeRoasterIf you follow me on Facebook or know me personally, you know I’m passionate about my coffee. You will pry it from my cold dead fingers! But I’m also very picky about coffee. It has to be organic, and it also has to be roasted with a Dietrich IR roaster. Oh the flavor of coffee roasted that way! It’s bursting with coffee’s wonderful flavor and aroma. I also insist on wet processing because it’s lower in mold. That makes my two favorites Costa Rican and Guatemalan.

My daughter and son-in-law soon picked up my passion for this kind of coffee, and my entrepreneurial son-in-law Mark decided he was going to become a toastmaster. And boy did he! The coffee that comes out of that roaster of is has to be tasted to be believed!

Here is the website for Captain Davy’s Coffee Roasters. Get one of my favorites: Costa Rican or Guatemalan, and let me know what you think! Or try one of Captain Davy’s other premium roasts. You can’t go wrong with them! Even the decaf has fabulous flavor!

Shipping is less per pound if you order 5 pounds at a time so that’s what I do, and I put 4 pounds in my freezer and take out a pound at a time. Hope you love it as much as I do!

All is Calm/All is Bright

All Is Calm

It’s going to be an unexpectedly romantic Christmas at Bluebird Ranch.

Brendan Waddell has always considered Bluebird Ranch a little piece of heaven: an idyllic ranch that pairs abused children with abused horses, run by one of his Marine buddies. Now, it seems just the place to spend Christmas recovering from an on-the-job injury.

Lauren Everman first came to the ranch as a foster kid, but now knows it’s the perfect hideout. As the witness to a murder, Lauren needs somewhere to lie low. Her beauty immediately catches Brendan’s attention—but so does her secretive behavior. This Special Ops Intel man knows a woman on the run when he sees one. Can he trust her, or is she putting the ranch at risk? One thing is certain: he’s going to do everything he can to keep her safe so he can see what magic Christmas brings.

The Inn At Ocean’s Edge

InnAtOcean'sEdge 195x300I’ve been SO excited to see share The Inn at Ocean’s Edge with readers! In celebration of this new release, my publisher is giving away a Kindle Fire. Hope over to this page and follow the instructions to enter. I’m going to be doing an online chat too. Details are here:

Here is a little bit about the book:

The minute she steps inside the grand Inn at Ocean’s Edge, Claire Dellamare knows something terrible happened there. She feels it in her bones. Her ensuing panic attack causes a scene, upsetting her parents. Claire attempts to quiet her nerves with a walk on the beach, to no avail. She’s at too great a distance to make out details, but she believes she witnesses a murder on a nearby cliff. When local police find no evidence of foul play, they quickly write off the “nervous” woman’s testimony as less than credible.

But Luke Rocco, home on leave from the Coast Guard, has reason to believe Claire. Years ago when his mother went missing, Luke’s father suspected she’d been murdered. He died never having convinced the police to investigate. So when an employee of the grand hotel doesn’t show up for work, Luke steps in to help Claire track down the missing woman.

As Claire and Luke put together the pieces of a decades-old mystery, they discover that some family secrets refuse to stay buried. And some passions are worth killing for.

Here is the book page for The Inn at Ocean’s Edge with links to online retailers.
