Colleen Coble on Danger, Relationships, & How She Met Her Husband (Plus a Giveaway!)

Posted by on Nov 12, 2019 in Blog | 28 comments

I’ve been reading USA Today best-selling author Colleen Coble’s books for longer than I can remember, and recently, I got to shoot a video interview with her on my YouTube channel: The Book Club Life.

Colleen Coble and Jenny Snow

How cool is that?! (SO cool!)


Answering questions about her life inspired by themes and quotes from her newest romantic suspense novel, Strands of Truth, Colleen shared about:


-Scary situations in her real life

-keeping a marriage together

-her biggest heartaches and blessings


-and more


She also totally put the FUN in our “Just for Fun” round of questions, sharing how she met her husband (this one cracks me up!), an embarrassing moment, and lots more.


I had such a blast getting to know the woman behind the books I’ve enjoyed for so long, and I’m thrilled to invite you into the conversation! (After you watch, be sure to scroll down to enter the giveaway.) Here’s our interview:


As mentioned, I’m giving away a copy of the book!

Back Cover:

Suspense, romance, and generational secrets meld in this engrossing new novel from USA TODAY bestselling 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.
