Dana Newell is a 911 dispatcher looking for a change in her life and a way to escape her abusive, sometimes scary, boyfriend.  She decides to move back to Rock Harbor knowing she’ll get support from good friends.  It feels good to her to be in familiar surroundings again even with the sad memories related to Rock Harbor.  It doesn’t take long though for things to take a dangerous turn.  She’s afraid her ex-boyfriend is stalking her, then she answers a call at work and is horrified when she hears her friend’s screams on the other end of the phone.  Boone Carter loved being a smoke jumper until an accident left his face permanently scarred and his fiancĂ© walked out.  Now he’s an outfitter and loves it.  When Boone and Dana meet there’s an immediate connection.  But Boone knows that both love and women are fickle.  Dana knows that love can be scary.  As they strike up a friendship, Dana tries to help Boone figure out who killed his sister since the police don’t seem to have a clue.  When tragedy strikes again, Boone and Dana begin gathering clues.  But what they discover is so much more than anyone could have ever imagined.

Wow!  Another edge-of-your-seat-thrill-ride-of-a-story by Colleen Coble.   I loved returning once again to Rock Harbor and mingling with the familiar folks I’ve come to know and love in the previous stories.  Bree, Samson, Kade, Lauri and others are all part of this story which made it really special.   Get ready though to set aside some time because once you start you will be hard pressed to put it down.  There were several twists and turns along the way and things I didn’t expect or anticipate.  One thing I really appreciated was the idea that we should not worry so much about what we look like on the outside but more about what’s on the inside.  I think that’s so important and that’s really what God does.  He doesn’t look on the outward but on the heart.  This is a must-read for Rock Harbor fans, that said, you could read this with no problem if you haven’t read any other books in this series.  So, grab your hot chocolate, get comfortable in your favorite easy chair and head for Rock Harbor and find out what happened Beneath Copper Falls.

Some favorite moments:

“The scars don’t define you.  Who you really are inside is what matters.

She’d spent too much of her life worrying about the face she presented to the world and much too little on the character she needed to be developing every day.

We are just to be faithful with our lives and our words.  If the Holy Spirit prompts you, then be faithful to what he has told you.”
