Police Chief Jane Hardy’s teenage son has been accused of a horrific crime—and three days of Jane’s memories have been stolen from her. In the gripping third installment of the Pelican Harbor series, the truth is finally coming out.
Chief of Police Jane Hardy plunges into the investigation of a house fire that claimed the life of a local woman as well as one of the firefighters. It’s clear the woman was murdered. But why? The unraveling of Jane’s personal life makes answers for the case even more difficult to find.
Then Jane’s fifteen-year-old son is accused of a terrible crime, and she has to decide if she can trust her ex, Reid, to help her prove Will’s innocence—and if she can trust Reid with her heart.
Three days of Jane’s past are missing from her memory, and that’s not all that’s been stolen from her. As she struggles to find the murderer and clear her son’s name, finding out what happened in those three days could change everything.
It all started with one little lie . . . but the truth is finally coming out.

Coble's busy conclusion to her trilogy set in Pelican Harbor, Ala., picks up where 2020's Two Reasons to Run left off. Police chief Jane Hardy sets out to find her mother, who abandoned her as a child, and to remember what happened years later during the three days she disappeared with her mother about a month before the birth of her now 15-year-old son, Will. Meanwhile, she and her boyfriend and Will's father, Reid Dixon, are being targeted by members of the cult the two of them escaped separately years earlier. Jane must also contend with Reid's estranged wife, Lauren, who refuses to divorce Reid so Jane can marry him. When Lauren is murdered, suspicion falls on Will. Along the way to the neat ending, Jane must solve three murders, face the cult members who are stalking her, and save the town from the threat of a dirty bomb. Jane and others often invoke God, but their religious beliefs don't interfere with the story. Coble's clear-cut prose makes it easy for the reader to follow the numerous scenarios and characters. This is just the ticket for readers of romantic suspense.
Evil doesn’t stand a chance!
This is where our fear meets the bedrock of our faith….I pray you’re right. I vacillate between total trust and total doubt.
Wow! Expect to sit on the edge of your seat for however many hours it takes you to read this book! Just imagine your child being charged with murder, your world falling apart around you and you have no idea who to trust. All you know is that your child is innocent.
The author has done a fabulous job of taking the reader in circles, with so many subplots you start to wonder if it could be the same group behind the fires, murders, etc. Chief Jane Hardy and her deputies are at their finest, working to solve these convoluted mysteries.
This book was borrowed from the church library. These thoughts and impressions are my own.
