Publisher's Summary

Suspense, romance, and generational secrets meld when a DNA test helps Harper Taylor locate the family she’s always longed for...but has it also put her in the crosshairs of a killer? 

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. Strands of Harper Taylor’s childhood are resurfacing - but will the truth save her...or pull her under? Suspense, romance, and generational secrets meld in this engrossing new novel from USA Today best-selling author Colleen Coble.

Critic Reviews

“Just when I think Colleen Coble’s stories can’t get any better, she proves me wrong. In Strands of Truth, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. The characterization of Ridge and Harper and their relationship pulled me immediately into the story. Fast paced, with so many unexpected twists and turns, I read this book in one sitting. Coble has pushed the bar higher than I’d imagined. This book is one not to be missed.” (Robin Caroll, best-selling author of the Darkwater Inn series)

“It’s in her blood! Colleen Coble once again shows her suspense prowess with a thriller as intricate and beautiful as a strand of DNA. Strands of Truth dives into an unusual profession involving mollusks and shell beds that weaves a unique, silky thread throughout the story. So fascinating I couldn’t stop reading!” (Ronie Kendig, best-selling author of The Tox Files

“Once again, Colleen Coble delivers an intriguing, suspenseful tale in Strands of Truth. The mystery and tension mount toward an explosive and satisfying finish. Well done.” (Creston Mapes, best-selling author)

not that great

I had a hard time getting into the plot. The reader did not make it easy to follow the story line, and did a poor job differing between the main characters. I found myself lost several times. I finally stopped listening to it. I loved Colleen cobbles earlier books, but I haven't been feeling it for her last few. Disappointing.

Too Confusing

This is the first time this has happened where I skipped probably half the audible book and read the last three chapters. I did not like how it kept going back then into the present. It was just confusing. I love Colleen Coble books so this was a surprise to me. Sorry

Good but not great

I’ve read several books by this author, and this wasn’t my favorite. I predicted most of the plot; it didn’t have as many twists and turns as some of her others.

Characters were frustrating

Overall the book was good. But the characters were frustrating in the sense that there seemed to be a lack of urgency and common sense. it could have been the reader for the book though; I'm not sure if I would have had the same impression if I read it myself vs. listen in to it.

Page turner

This is the kind of story that will keep you up late, wanting to read “just one more chapter.” Interesting characters. Intriguing plot. Satisfying ending. And Devon O’Day did a great job reading the book for Audible.
