Publisher's Summary

Suspense, romance, and generational secrets meld in this engrossing new novel from USA Today best-selling author Colleen Coble. 

Strands of Harper Taylor’s childhood are resurfacing - but will the truth save her...or pull her under? 

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. 

“Free-dive into a romantic suspense that will leave you breathless and craving for more.” (DiAnn Mills, best-selling author)

"As always, Colleen Coble never disappoints. Strands of Truth is no exception. I was hooked from the first page. Trying to read this story slowly is impossible. Don't be surprised when you find yourself flipping the pages in a hurry to find out what happens next! This one is for your keeper shelf." (Lynette Eason, best-selling, award-winning author of the Blue Justice series)

“Colleen Coble's latest book, Strands of Truth, grips you on page one with a heart-pounding opening and doesn't let go until the last satisfying word. I love her skill in pulling the reader in with believable, likable characters, interesting locations, and a mystery just waiting to be untangled. Highly recommended.” (Carrie Stuart Parks, best-selling author of Formula of Deception

Critic Reviews

“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)

“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

Awesome Mystery Read.

This is an awesome mystery read. From the first paragraph you just want to keep going, keep finding out what next. You’ll love the characters and want to help out if only you could. You’ll also learn something’s about DNA that you might not have considered. This is a great story. Enjoy! I did

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.

Absolutely amazing. Couldn't put it down.

Another fantastic book by one of my favorite authors. Suspense, mystery, and romance! It's what Colleen Coble does, and she does it the best. A women looking into her past - all she knows is her mother was murdered, sets off a series of events that ends up endangering those she loves and her own life. You'll fall in love with the characters, and the storyline will have you hooked! Amazing read! You won't be disappointed.

Got too preachy

I might have given this story more stars, as I thought it was a pretty good story in the beginning. However, in the second half, (around chapter 30-32?) the author turned on the religion and got all preachy. It was very annoying and it added nothing to the story in my opinion. Also, I figured out the ending before I got to it, that is, the reason for the kidnappings. It was pretty obvious at that point, so the suspense of the story pretty much died. Too bad, because it started out really strong.

I would like to note that the narrator of the story did a good job. Unfortunately, though, I would not recommend this story for the reasons above.
