DARK OF NIGHT by Colleen Coble, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"One thing was clear - she hated Annie and blamed her for the wreck that was her past life. And Jon wasn't sure how to stop her from destroying Annie's happiness."

Annie Pederson's world currently resembles a juggling act; a young woman who claims to be her long lost sister is still shrouded under suspicion, her first love, Dr. Jon Dunstan, is back in her life, and their daughter Kylie has no idea that Jon is her biological father . . . how to tell her, when to tell her . . . and on top of all that, another young woman has vanished in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. As that case moves forward, Annie's skills as a law enforcement officer, combined with her well honed instincts, are indicating that that there is more to the disappearance than meets the eye . . . especially when she and Jon appear to become targets.
There is a lot going on in this book, so can everything eventually tidy up into a neat little package? Apparently? . . . not . . . until the boundaries suddenly blur between personal and professional causing Annie to nearly lose everyone that she holds dear.

"Life brings good and bad, Annie. We grow our faith through those heartaches."

BackCover Blurb:
The law is about justice—not grace. But perhaps ranger Annie Pederson can find a way to have both.

As if the last few months haven’t been hard enough—complete with threats on her life and the return of her first love, Jon—Annie has to figure out whether or not to believe a woman who claims to be her sister, Sarah, who was abducted twenty-four years ago at age five. Annie’s eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, has plenty of questions about what’s going on in her mother’s life—but there are some stories Annie doesn’t want uncovered.

As Annie grapples with how to heal the gulf between her and her would-be sister and make room in her daughter’s life for Jon, she’s professionally distracted by the case of yet another missing hiker in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A woman named Michelle Fraser has now been abducted, and though the woman’s estranged husband is at the top of their suspect list, Annie and her colleagues will need to dig deeper to determine whether these recent mysteries are truly as unrelated as they seem.

In this second novel of bestselling author Colleen Coble’s latest romantic-suspense series, Annie and Jon must fight for the future—and the family—that could once more be theirs.
