Publisher's Summary

The gripping second installment of the Pelican Harbor series from USA Today best-selling author Colleen Coble! Police Chief Jane Hardy has only just been reunited with her long-lost son when she learns of an impending terror attack that threatens everything she holds dear.

A lie changed her world. Police Chief Jane Hardy is still reeling from the scandal that rocked her small-town department just as she took over for her retired father - the man who wrecked her life with one little lie. Now she’s finally been reunited with her presumed-dead 15-year-old son, Will, and his father, documentarian Reid Dixon.

When a murder aboard the Gulf Coast oil platform Zeus exposes an environmental terrorist’s plot to flood Mobile Bay with crude oil, Jane and Reid must put their feelings for each other aside and work together to prevent the looming sabotage.

When the terrorist puts Will’s life on the line, protecting him could be the common ground Jane and Reid need...until ghosts from the past threaten to ruin their fragile relationship for good.

Jane has plenty of reasons to run. But what if she stays?

not the best. not the worst.

not my favorite coble book, but I will purchase the 3rd and final one because it is intriguing enough to want to see how the story ends.

Suspense. Action. Love. Christ

I pray that Colleen Coble continues to write books like this, and I can't wait until #3 comes out in April 2021. This book hits all the marks for me, and I love that Ms. Coble works real relationship with Chris into the book without overpowering readers who may desire to have a story without it. What a great way to plant the seed!

Couldn’t stop listening

Colleen Coble is a master of suspense. In this book we dig a little deeper into Jane’s past life. Reid and Will are thriving in Pelican Harbor and want to be part of Jane’s present and future life. Why then does someone want to take all that way? You will hate having to pause this book for any reason.

Likable characters

I have enjoyed this series . This is the first time I have read/listened to this author. I read the read first book “One Little Lie”, and I listened to “Two Reasons to Run” . I have already downloaded “Three Missing Days”. The characters are very likable. There are nice twists and turns. I am looking forward to finishing the series to find out “the rest of the story”.

It was okay.

I struggled to finish it. it was to long. The story is mostly about Jane dealing with the lies from her father and Ried not telling her right away about their son. the oil ridge murder was about 1/4 of the book. I normally LOVE all Collens books, but this was hard to finish.

Pelican Harbor = Gulf Shores

Narrator's voice is pleasant but sometimes difficult to differentiate speakers.
#2 was less satisfying than #1 because the details of the attack are sketchy and some situations are simply unrealistic. Being able to leave a hospital without being asked to sign an AMA form? No way. Caught in a bear trap and not given crutches? Right. Still, no foul language. Characters believe in the existence of God but faith is not on prominent display.

Not for me!

Oh dear! I did it again. Don’t finish a book just because you’ve started!

It started with describing the main character as looking like Reece Witherspoon! I dislike that as much as photos on book covers. I want to picture my own characters, and her description didn’t match so that jarred with me. I really should have given up when he wanted to pull her into his lap! The number of books that say that! Why is it so shocking that women can walk and talk at the same time?! Sorry, I’m probably being horrid but this very short book has just taken 4 days to complete. I refer back to my first line.
