“You can’t let fear rule your life, Flygirl,” Zach tells Shauna in Colleen Coble’s novel, The View from Rainshadow Bay. ~ What ~ Part of the Lavender Tides series, this three-hundred-and-forty-page paperback targets those interested in romantic suspense that blends finding love after heartbreak while solving multiple murders. With no profanity, the topics of kidnapping, murder, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending includes a note from the author, nine discussion questions, acknowledgments, author’s biography, and advertisements. ~ Why ~ In this current day tale based in the state of Washington, it has been a year since Shauna has lost her husband in a climbing accident that she feels her husband’s best friend, Zach, is to blame. When dear friends of hers are mysteriously killed, she questions if other people’s deaths close to her were murdered too. After her home is ransacked, Shauna agrees cautiously to live with her son with Zach until it is determined who is coming after her next. Having hated the man for being there when her husband died, she wonders if there is any way to get over the past to accept Zach as more than a friend. ~ Why ~ This is a fast read that has everything from romance, regret, guilt, fear, and heartbreak mixed with the intrigue of why one family and their friends are being eliminated. Without focusing too much on God or faith, it shows how God is always with us, even when bad things happen to those we love. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not like mystery stories with predictable romances may not enjoy this book. I found the explanation of an earthquake-making machine vague and unscientific while the quickly-changing relationship between two friends within a year of a spouse’s death was abrupt. ~ Wish ~ I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence. ~ Want ~ If you need an escape of everyday life, this romantic read may be engaging trying to find out who is behind several related deaths in a small Washington town.

The View from Rainshadow Bay kept me guessing. There was a lot going on in this novel and at times I felt as if I was suffering from information overload. There were so many clues, multiple characters, and scenarios from both the past and present that had to be sifted through. It was very entertaining and the author kept me guessing through almost the entire novel as to how everything was connected and who the villain was. I liked the main characters and hoped for the best for them. I didn’t connect very deeply with Shauna and Zach, but I did feel for them and all that they had both suffered through for the past year. There were plenty of action-packed moments and some good romantic tension that built throughout the story. I think this book will be the start of an exciting series. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
