Shauna and Zach’s dream honeymoon—turned nightmare.
Having narrowly avoided tragedy in their hometown of Lavender Tides, Washington, Shauna and Zach Bannister are finally on a honeymoon cruise through the Hawaiian islands. Lost in the glow of their newfound love, they eagerly anticipate basking in the warmth of the lush tropics.
But soon the newlyweds begin receiving mysterious threats. After Zach survives two attempts on his life – staged as freak accidents – Shauna ominously receives flowers from a stranger.
The lovers become unwitting detectives in an urgent pursuit to discover the identity of their murderous stalker.
Set against the spectacular Hawaiian landscape, Colleen Coble’s lightning-paced novella is a haunting journey into a world as remote and hidden as it is beautiful, as spellbinding as it is wondrous.
Join Zach and Shauna from Colleen Coble's The View From Rainshadow Bay in a novella available for a limited time exclusively at Barnes and Noble titled Leaving Lavender Tides.
In Leaving Lavender Tides, we journey with Zach and Shauna to Hawaii for their honeymoon. What is supposed to be a relaxing, romantic getaway turns into a trying vacation as Zach and Shauna become targets for a reason neither of them can figure out.
While this novella is shorter than Coble's other books, the story developed well and transported me to Hawaii through the imagery and mention of local cuisine.
I am anxiously waiting for the next book in this series, The House at Saltwater Point to release. Leaving Lavender Tides was a nice surprise to hold me over. I am glad I read this book before reading The House at Saltwater Point, although I'm assuming this can be read after it.
