After reading the first book in the Aloha Reef series which I thoroughly enjoyed for being a fast-paced, suspenseful story, I was anticipating the same in Black Sands. My only disappointment was the overuse of cliches in the dialogue.
Coble is an excellent Christian writer because she encourages the reader to consider how the character's conflicts might affect their own lives and the decisions one makes.
I also appreciate that the author incorporates religion into her stories without resorting to having the reader feel 'preached to'.
1nd in the series, Aloha Reef by Colleen Coble this book captivated my interest from the start. Filled with questions about how did I forget about God it also is filled with mystery and supense as a young girl is missing, her brother back from the dead and a murder made to look like suiside keeps you guessing as to what is going ot happen next but always reminding God is in control.
I enjoyed this book as I have all the books I've read by this author. I liked this one because it is on the Big Island of Hawaii where I love. I got a little more information about the volcano that I've never really been to see the lava flowing. I like the authors easy style of writing.
