About The Book

Annie Pederson: Book 2
Publication Date: January 10, 2023

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 stones 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 and 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.



The Review

Ranger Annie Pederson is back for another suspense-filled adventure in the second installment of author Colleen Coble’s newest series.

Dark of Night picks up shortly after Edge of Dusk. As an accomplished writer with numerous titles under her belt, Coble weaves drama into her romantic stories to captivate readers. Packed with action, her novels bring small communities like Rock Harbor to life.

This time, not only does Annie face challenges in her personal life, but a missing hiker report proves to be more complicated. Annie and her team must unravel the clues before it is too late.

The personal challenges provide an intriguing dilemma as Annie has to deal with long-standing guilt related to her sister, who disappeared as a child. The author does an excellent job depicting this struggle, especially in light of Annie’s efforts to have a relationship with Jon in spite of her daughter’s less-than-welcoming attitude.

Dark of Night hits all the right targets for a fantastic escape into a world full of adventure and romance. I’m already looking forward to the next installment.

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
