Beneath Copper Falls is Colleen Coble's latest addition to her Rock Harbor Series. You know from the first page that this tale will be filled with suspense. You find Renee Carter hiding in her garden from the man she is to marry the next day. Before you know it, she is grabbed by her groom-to-be. Suddenly he is holding her head under water. Renee's final thoughts are of her brother, Boone!
As you move forward two years, you find Boone Carter back in his hometown of Rock Harbor in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He is currently managing a group of cabins that he built himself, providing visitors with a place to stay while they take advantage of the great outdoors. You are soon introduced to Dana Newell, who looking for a safe place to live, plans to move back home to Rock Harbor and live with her brother Chris. Dana is running away from an abusive relationship with her fiance, Garret Waterman. She meets Boone as soon as she arrives at her brother's house. Her brother is currently out of town on a business trip, but he has asked his friend Boone to stop by and make her feel welcome. Dana is uneasy when he stops by with groceries for her and the atmosphere becomes even more awkward when she is caught staring at the burns on his face!
Dana soon learns that Boone was burned during his time working as a smoke-jumper in Arizona. As Dana begins to get to know Boone better and their friendship begins to grow, she learns more of the details about his sister Renee's death. The details are way too similar to the way Garret had treated her. When she suddenly sees Garret driving through town, she knows her worst fear has come true. He has found her sanctuary!
Hang on as this tale will lead you to an ending you would never imagine!
I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
