Title:  Twilight at Blueberry Barrens (Sunset Cove #3)

My rating is4 stars.
Kate Mason is a survivor.  She has been cured of aplastic anemia and weathered her mother, uncle and father all going to prison.  However, she now faces a financial crisis.  Her blueberry crop for this year has failed and she doesn’t know where she will get the money to live on for the next year.  Raising blueberries is the only job she has ever known and she has stayed on her mother’s property to take care of them while her mother is in prison.  She has never thought much about doing any other job.  She decides to fix up a cottage on her property and rent it.  She also has noticed odd things around the house like lights being turned off, doors unlocked, tools in areas where she didn’t leave them, but she blames it on “chemo” brain.  Plus she is still fighting off the heeby jeebies from the horrible discovery she and her sister made while out bird watching.
She unexpectedly finds a tenant for her cottage very quickly as well as a position as the tenant’s nanny.  The tenants are Drake Newham and his two young nieces who have recently been orphaned after their father, Drake’s brother, is thought to have killed his wife and then himself.  Drake doesn’t believe that verdict as he knows his brother would never leave his daughters alone in the world; he loved them dearly.  Drake is in town to investigate on his own and bring the killer to justice.  He hires Kate to look after his nieces.  What he doesn’t expect is the attraction he has for Kate.  As Kate helps Drake with his investigation, more strange things happen and more danger abounds.
If you like to read about mysteries, romance, murders, faith, stalkers and much more action, then this is the book for you.  I would recommend reading the prior two books in the series first as this is a continuous story.  They are titled, The Inn at Ocean’s Edge and Mermaid Moon, respectively.  This story centers around Kate Mason, the twin of Claire Dellamare whose story is featured in book one of the series.  Kate is resilient, strong and has a deep faith in God.  I loved how she would talk to Emma and Phoebe about nature or some other topic, but would always weave God into their conversations.  She used her time well as teaching moments about faith and God.  I pray to be more aware of those teachable moments whether I’m talking with an adult or a child.  This series would make a great Christmas gift!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
