This Mercy Falls novel has romance, mystery, secrets and a bad guy. Coble wows the reader with a fresh storyline. Readers will enjoy peeling back the layers and discovering this is more than your average romance book. The characters are strong not only in themselves but also in their faith. While I don’t normally comment on book covers, this time I have to: Wow, what an outstanding cover design this book has, it is elegant and classy, without being crass.
