As part of a virtual tour organized by Partners in Crime, today’s post introduces a recent release from Colleen Coble – Two Reasons to Run – the second book in the author’s Pelican Harbor Series.
About the Book
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 fifteen-year-old son, Will, and his father, documentarian Reid Bechtol.
A crisis looms.
When a murder aboard the 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 behind them and work together to prevent the rig from being sabotaged.
A killer targets her son.
Then the terrorist puts her son Will’s life on the line. Protecting him could be the common ground they need . . . but then ghosts from the past threaten to ruin Jane and Reid for good. She’s got plenty of reasons to run. But what if she stays?
This was an intriguing read. Both Jane and Reid are challenged by the ghosts of their shared past as children of cult members and their shared parenting of their son, Will. They are loving parents and though they are not a couple, they clearly have unresolved feelings for each other. Family dynamics play a key role in the story.
I must say that when a book’s description talks about the need to foil a terrorist plot, I kind of expect it to be a main focus of the drama that runs alongside the elements of romantic suspense. However this book was more about the complicated relationship and romantic tension between Jane and Reid than about the plot to blow up the oil rig, which could have been better developed.
Note: I dove into this book, without reading the first book in the series and thus found myself playing catch up on the back story. Might be best to read them in order.
FTC disclosure: I received an advance review copy of this book from the publisher. This has not affected the content of my review.
