Cry in the Night is the fourth installment of Colleen Coble’s Rock Harbor series, but the first I’ve read. The characters have carried over, yet the book stands alone well.
Karen Kingsbury has dubbed Coble a “master storyteller”. She’s right. I was sucked in from the first chapter, when Pia Westola hides an unidentified baby and falls to her death. Search-and-rescue worked Bree Matthews later finds Pia’s body and the abandoned infant, and begins to search for the child’s parents. Her search puts her family, and her future, in jeopardy. As Bree rushes to find answers, her world begins to shatter.
I enjoy a good mystery. Parts of this one were easily solved, but there were also some surprises. My only criticism (and it’s not much of one) is that there are too many characters in the story. At times, I found it difficult to keep up with everyone, but that may be because I came into the series late. I definitely want to go back and read the first three books.
Cry in the Night also includes a Reading Group Guide that will encourage readers to take a closer look at the characters and their relationships.
Melissa has been captivated by books for as long as she can remember. She resides in Virginia and blogs at Breath of Life.

I was the one with the problem of the tiny
print. When I clicked on the title as you
suggested, everything was very readable.
This book sounds as if it would be a good read
and that I would want to read more of her books.
Thanks for the review.
