Strands of Truth By Colleen Coble

I received this book for no charge from Celebrate Lit Blogger Program and the author for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description:  

Harper Taylor is used to being alone—after all, she grew up in one foster home after another. Oliver Jackson finally took her under his wing when she was a runaway teenager, and now Harper pours her marine biology knowledge into Oliver’s pen shell research. But she’s never stopped wishing for a family of her own. 
So when a DNA test reveals a half-sister living just two hours away, Harper is both hopeful and nervous. Over warm cinnamon rolls, Harper and Annabelle find striking similarities in their stories. Is it just a coincidence that both their mothers died tragically, without revealing Harper and Annabelle’s father’s name? 
Oliver’s son Ridge still sees Harper as a troubled teen even all these years later. But when Oliver is attacked, Ridge and Harper find themselves working together to uncover dangerous secrets that threaten to destroy them all. They must unravel her past before they can have any hope for the future. 



My Thoughts:

Strands of Truth is the latest book by Colleen Coble and it is fantastic. I have always been a fan of Colleen Coble, her books are so engaging and keeps you guessing until the end and this book gives this and more. I love Mystery and Thriller books so I was excited to have the opportunity to read this book. Colleen Coble's style of writing is unique and she writes with authority about: DNA, foster care, Marine Biology, and Christianity. The characters in this book are well written and very relatable. I found myself drawn to Harper, her plight to find her family and then to be in danger because of that search really hit me. I found her strength and faith admirable. I could not put this book down, once I picked it up I could NOT put it down. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Mystery Fiction, you will not be disappointed. I give this book 5 STARS.
