Edge of Dusk by Colleen Coble
Even though secrets lie off the coast of Rock Harbor, the truth will set Annie Pederson free—if it doesn’t kill her first.
Nine-year-old Annie Pederson’s life changed the night her sister was kidnapped. The two had been outside playing on a dock, and Annie never forgave herself for her role in her sister’s disappearance. Twenty-four years later and now a law enforcement ranger, Annie is still searching for answers as she grieves a new loss: the death of her husband and parents in a boating accident.
But Annie and her eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, aren’t the only people in the town of Rock Harbor whose lives have been marred by tragedy. While managing the property around the Tremolo Resort and Marina she inherited, Annie discovers a dead body floating in the cold Superior surf and begins to work with the sheriff’s office to tie the death to a series of other mysterious reports in the area.
At the same time, her first love, Jon Dustan, returns after nine years away, reigniting the town’s memory of a cold case he’d been suspiciously linked to before he left to pursue his orthopedic residency. For the sake of her investigation and her heart, Annie tries to stay away. But avoiding Jon becomes impossible once Annie realizes she is being targeted by someone desperate to keep secrets from the past hidden.
In this new series, bestselling romantic-suspense author Colleen Coble returns to one of her most beloved towns, where familiar faces—and unsolved cases—await.

How Finding Your People Transforms Your Writing Career by Colleen Coble
When I first started writing, I had no idea how important finding my core fellow writers would impact my life. I had written Where Leads the Heart without having even met another writer. It was a lonely time, and I felt like a weirdo. I didn’t even tell anyone but my family what I was doing because it felt presumptuous. What did I—a farm girl in Indiana—think I had to offer?
Then I went to my first writer’s conference where I met other people who had characters springing full born into their heads. It was only a few months before Barbour bought my first book, and while I didn’t find any of my lifelong friends at that conference, I realized there was a whole subset of people out there like me. I wasn’t weird—I was a writer.
After Barbour bought my first novel, I discovered one of their authors lived an hour from me, and we began to correspond via email at first. When I met Denise Hunter, I found a critique partner who has been with me to this day. Neither of us would dream of writing without getting input from each other. But she is more than a crit partner—she is a sister-of-the heart. Soon after meeting Denise, I met Kristin Billerbeck, and we would go on to edit one another as well. Diann Hunt soon joined our little blogging group, and we were a tightly-knit support group. Losing Diann to ovarian cancer was a blow we didn’t expect, and we still mourn her loss.
I joined the board of American Christian Fiction Writers and my circle of friends expanded even more. I mentored several including Robin Caroll and Cara Putman who went on to be published and became dear friends along the way. I began holding and attending brainstorming sessions that transformed my writing and made close friends along the way like Deborah Raney, Rachel Hauck, Carol Cox, Lynette Eason, Rick Acker, and Carrie Stuart Parks.
I learned more about writing processes and how to craft a novel from interaction with these close friends. Together we figured out how to support one another on social media and in interactions with readers. Most of all, we learned we are not alone on the journey. Our lives became richer as we walked through valleys and mountain peaks together.
While the journey isn’t over, I know I can pick up the phone and have instant encouragement from others who have walked with me. That’s priceless!
How did you find your closest circle of friends?
