Uncovering The Truth
One Little Lie by Colleen Coble is a marvellous
contemporary Christian murder suspense. It is the first book in the Pelican
Harbor series and what a cracking series that promises to be.
The reader’s heart races as the tension rises.
Once again I got completely absorbed in the action. As the body count rose, I
totally failed in predicting the outcome.
When lives are built on lies, sooner or later
there will be a fall as the truth must come out. We must face the consequences
and answer for our choices.
There is the theme of cults and churches. Cults
enforce their wills on people, manipulating and controlling others. They can be
dangerous. In contrast churches are safe places when they function as God
intended. It is in the church community that we build relationships with each
other and with God.
Strands Of Truth by Colleen Coble is an exciting and
gripping contemporary Christian suspense that will have the reader glued and guessing.
Legacies are important, as is heritage. We need
to know where we come from in order to plot where we are going. Even more
important is to know Whose we are.
A mother’s love is a powerful thing. It is
protective and caring. If we are denied it as a child, we will lose our anchor
in life and be continually searching for that love, never trusting as the
foundations are not there.
We can trust God. He will be with us and walk
through the storms beside us. “No matter what happened, God was with her in
this.” Sometimes life is hard but God is faithful. “God saw her in this place.
She had to hold on to faith.”
Tidewater Inn by Colleen Coble is a fabulous contemporary Christian suspense and the first book in The Hope Beach series. I loved it and read it in just one sitting.
The novel has the theme of restoration. Restoration of old buildings mirrors the restoration in our lives. We all need to pull together and share our knowledge (of the love of God) to see lives changed and restored.
Money equals power for some. Greed rules over people’s lives. Unscrupulous characters will stop at nothing to rise upwards. Greed and treasure clouds their vision. Characters with correct priorities realise that money cannot solve problems. People matter. Money can buy comfort and is a short term high. Transformation by love lasts forever.
Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble is the second book in the Sunset Cove series but it can be read as a stand-alone.
Once again Colleen Coble has written a fabulous contemporary murder mystery novel with a hint of romance. I was certainly hooked from the beginning.
