About Secrets at Cedar Cabin

Her mother lied about her identity and her husband wasn’t who she thought he was—can Bailey even trust herself anymore?

Running for her life in the wake of her mother’s murder, Bailey Fleming escapes to the only place she can think of—a remote, dilapidated cabin in Lavender Tides. Intending to finally get to the truth behind the lies of her past, Bailey only finds more questions when bodies are discovered near her cabin hideout along with traces of a dangerous human trafficking ring. In an unlikely partnership with FBI agent Lance Phoenix, Bailey races to understand the mystery surrounding her life and circumstances before the murderer tracks her down. 

Meanwhile, Lance is determined to rescue his sister, Ava, who was abducted after running away from home as a teenager. An unexpected lead brings him to the remote cabin, and he wonders if Bailey—with her suspicious past and strange connections to his sister’s case—is really who she claims to be and if she can somehow lead him to Ava. 

Filled with Colleen Coble’s custom blend of suspense and romance, Secrets at Cedar Cabin takes us back to the evocative landscape of Washington’s coast where nothing is quite as it seems.

My Review

Few books make me feel as though I’m coming home as soon as I start Chapter 1. Lord of the Rings is one of them (likely due to having read it, oh, 15 times … ha!); Secrets at Cedar Cabin is another, and I hadn’t even read this one before.

Book 3 (and the finale) in Coble’s Lavender Tides series, Cedar Cabin brings back familiar faces from earlier books as well as from her Rock Harbor series. I do recommend reading this series in order, as it references storylines and fleshes out characters well beyond their own respective books.

Coble deals well with a tough subject (sex/human trafficking), presenting the facts and cruelty of it without showing too much, which I appreciated. She explored the toll it takes on families “left behind” as well as just how easy it is to be lured into that world. Heartbreaking.

Coble also dealt with another tough subject, one that strikes close to home—Alzheimer’s. My grandfather had this disease, and reading about it brought back quite a few memories.

A worthy conclusion to (and indeed my favorite in) the series, one I’m sad to see end. I love these characters and hope to see them again in future novels!

I received a copy of the book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
