    One thought on “Abomination”

    1. A beautiful woman stands by the side of the road, barefoot and bleeding, a child in her arms. Someone just tried to kill her, but she wouldn't recognize him if she saw his face. She doesn't even remember her own name. I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher Thomas Nelson Fiction for giving me a copy of this book.3.5 stars. Haven of Swans is the first book I've read by Colleen Coble and I liked it. It's Christian Fiction, but not overtly so which I liked. The message was there, but it d [...]

    2. Sadly, I have had to abandon my read of this book. I've read 11 of Colleen Coble's books so far, and I've thoroughly enjoyed them. Yes, they are not for the faint hearted. They include death & murder, and disturbing revelations. So far I have been able to appreciate the plot for what it is, and for the intricacy in combining mystery with romance, with a location to 'die for' (sorry for the pun!)Haven of Swans begins at a level I have not even encountered before. I found it extremely dark and [...]

    3. Colleen Coble is one of my favorite Christian authors for many reasons but mostly because she can draw me into her mysteries faster than I can blink, and her characters are so real. And this book was no exception. The story opens in the killer's point of view. Then we're introduced to the main character, who doesn't know where she is, why she's bleeding from a stab wound, or who the little girl is in her arms. All she knows is that she's terrified and believes someone tried to kill her. A car ap [...]

    4. This was my first Colleen Coble book that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it! A true psychological thriller that is fast-moving and suspenseful with a touch of drama and romance.This book takes everyone back to Rock Harbor with Bree, Kade, and the lovable search and rescue dog Samson, as they assist Captain Nick Andreakos in his search for a serial killer who is really into geocaching. Coble really has a way of telling a story, throughout the entire book I thought for sure I knew who the ki [...]

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. When I read it under the title 'Abomination' in 2007. I am taking away a star, even though it deserves it as a book, because I seriously dislike this practice of publishers taking a book that was published years earlier and re-publishing it under a new title. It seems somehow unethical to me. Why not just simply re-publish the book under it's original title? It's very disconcerting to buy a book, as I have in the past, only to discover it's a book I've already rea [...]

    6. Terrible book. Someone needs to tell this author that if you're going to write a book that involves investigative and police work, you should talk to people in that field. Her characters are completely umrealistic, I didn't believe them at all. Awful dialogue. And I only made it just over a hundred pages in. Don't waste your time.

    7. Picked this up at the library on the last run. Saw the cover and it had a sticker on it that said it was an 'inspirational' title. #1 - I don't know who the he** put that sticker on this book . or why they thought it was inspirational. I had no inkling of anything that would be even remotely inspirational in the general sense so If someone at your library has done the same thing they are wrong. ha ha. The book is okay. It's about a woman who, after being nearly killed by a man, runs away wi [...]

    8. Colleen Coble takes up back to Rock Harbor with a suspense that will suck you in until the very last page. Characters you can relate to and a plot to grab your attention, this is a crime suspense to put on your reading list. *I received a NetGalley copy of this book.*

    9. A hair-raising thriller that kept me glued to the pagewith frequent shoulder checks for good measure. Somewhat gruesome -- Coble never goes too far but my vivid imagination filled in the details all too clearly. Shudder. The suspense just doesn't quit -- complicated and gnarly and completely riveting. The plot twists and turns and twists some more. It got to the point where I just couldn't put the book down and finished it in the wee hours of the morning.Back in Rock Harbor with Bree and Samson [...]

    10. Michigan's rugged and beautiful Upper Peninsula is the setting for this absorbing tale of love and loss, beauty and terror, grievous sins and second chances. A beautiful woman who doesn't even remember her own name. A suburban cop surveys a kitchen in disarray—a woman and child missing. The man who calls himself Gideon waits and plans. He has already killed five. He will kill again.I wanted to like this book but I really didn’t. I just couldn’t like or identify with the heroin in the book. [...]

    11. This was a great book! Things wrapped up a bit too conveniently but that's ok by me. I had good entertainment and when not reading this book, I thought about it, which to me makes it more enjoyable!

    12. I actually grabbed Abomination off the shelf of our local dollar book store because the cover is so captivating, but it was also an enjoyable read. Colleen Coble weaves an intriguing mystery, fraught with danger, in the beautiful setting of Rock Harbor, Michigan. It's well written, refreshingly clean, and I'll definitely be reading more of her in the future.

    13. I hated this book. I guessed the supposed twist ending, the author did not do enough research to write from police standpoint, not to mention all of the glaring errors. I could not get past how unbelievable this story is. I will probably not read another book by this author, that's how awful it was. I'm overly sorry I paid for this book at all, even with it being in the used book store.

    14. A great read. It was a little disturbing when I first read it because my brother was just getting into geocaching at the time.I have really enjoyed most of Colleen Coble's books that I've read and this one is one of my favorites.

    15. My first read of Colleen Coble. She kept the culprit hidden until the end of the book. I'll be reading more by her soon!!

    16. Okay, this book was INTENSE! I mean, it kind of freaked me out a little bit. There is this psychopath who is killing young women and thinks God told him to do it. I really don't like when people do that. I can't stand when God is used to justify evil. So that made me sad/angry because I know it's a real thing. A young woman turns up in Rock Harbor with a two year old child but has no clue who she is. Bree picks her up and takes her in. They begin trying to uncover anything they can about this my [...]

    17. Title: Haven of Swans (formerly titled Abominations)Author: Colleen CoblePages: 336Year: 2017 Publisher: Thomas Nelson My rating 5 out of 5 stars.Wow! From the very start of the book, this story stole my breath and at times sped up the beating of my heart. The ending was so climatic I couldn’t read it fast enough! The setting is the UP of Michigan. There is a woman who cannot remember who she is, the name of the child in her arms, or that she has been badly hurt! At first, she moves almost on [...]

    18. She doesn't remember who she is or who wants her dead. She has a knife wound and a small child who calls her mama, but where she came from and where she was running to is a long-lost memory. Finding refuge in Rock Harbor, she tries to start over. Her memory seems to be locked away despite the few instances where a random memory is triggered by her circumstances. However, when she and a few of her newly made friends find a dead body in the woods near Rock Harbor, the sight and smell of a peanut b [...]

    19. This was previously published as Abomination but this version has a title and cover art that is more in line with the other books in the Rock Harbor series than the original release. Like her other books in the series you don’t necessarily have to read them all in order and they would work well as standalones except for the parts about her personal life. Each book is essentially its own contained mystery. Colleen Coble writes excellent suspense thrillers that build with the right momentum.This [...]

    20. I have never been able to give the books in this series above 3 stars and this could bemight beould be, the last one I read, but then I wonder if so and so will do such and such, and think, well the premise of the next one sounds interesting These books frustrate me in some way I can’t quite put my finger on—in the way the story flows or the logic of it, or something. Then the very most disappointing thing about this book #4 takes place 5 years after the last one! Five! That is very unusual [...]

    21. Haven of SwansA Rock Harbor Novelby Colleen CobleThomas Nelson--FICTIONThomas NelsonChristianPub Date 02 May 2017 I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of Haven of Swans through Thomas Nelson-Fiction and Netgalley:He calls himself Gideon, Gideon the Destroyer of Evil.He had tried to kill her, but she drove bleeding, unsure of how much blood she lost. She needs to get her and her daughter away from him before he kills her.A woman finds her bleeding, on the side of the road, her little girl in her arm [...]

    22. Colleen Coble Haven of Swans has a heart stopping opening as a woman and her child are on the side of the road and scared but she is not sure of whom or what. She finds herself in Rock Harbor where Bree takes her in. You may remember Bree and Samson from the original Rock Harbor series. Gideon is a creepy, crazy villain who has justified his need to kill, and kill again. I will not spoil any of it for you and will let you find out the rest of his craziness as you read the story. Nick is a detect [...]

    23. I also read the earlier edition of this book though that was quite some time ago. Colleen Coble is one of my favorite authors. I love all of her work! She never disappoints me, whether it's historical fiction or mystery and suspense. The danger is vivid and shocking at times. This novel draws you in and has you on the edge of your seat at times because it is very intense. I love returning to Rock Harbor and catching up with Bree and Naomi. This one has a modern day feel with the technological ge [...]

    24. I received a free copy of this novel from HarperCollins Publishing in exchange for my honest review.Elena Cox is found barefoot and cold walking on the side of the road with her baby girl. She has bruises, a stab wound, and no memory. Bree Matthews is determined to help her get back on her feet and get her memory back. Other than her name she remembers nothing but has immense fear that the attacker has followed her to Rock Harbor.Then there's Gideon, his quest is rid the world of evil. He's take [...]

    25. Haven of Swans is one amazing psychological thriller that Colleen Coble is known for. This one really threw me for a loop. When I thought I knew who the serial killer was my mind was absolutely blown. You are at first see the book through the eyes of the killer - isn't that a bite - then you are seeing through one of the victims who got away but who has a missing memory - that is the second bite - and she is getting away from a killer and she sees a car - is it the killer or is it a helper of he [...]

    26. This book was excellent! I love it when you have no idea who the bad guy is. Then about 30 pages from the end you find out who the person was. You think back into the other parts of the book and see the signs. And you go, "Oh, that's what that meant." I also like a book that doesn't finish abruptly. The ending is well thought out and gives you closure on all of the subplots. I think I will enjoy reading more "Rock Harbor" stories. This book was published under another name, "Abomination." Luckil [...]

    27. This book is a reprint of an earlier novel—Abomination. I kept thinking it felt familiar and then later found out that it was a novel I had already read. It seems tricky to me to re-publish a book with a new title. Once you have purchased the book you a second time, you feel short-changed. That said, the novel is the 4th in the Rock Harbor series. We meet up with Bree, Davey, Naomi, and others from the previous novels. Some of the situations the heroine found herself in seemed a bit far-fetche [...]

    28. Haven of Swans was an incredible book that will have you smiling one minute and looking over your shoulder the next. It is part of the Rock Harbor series and I loved checking in with Bree and Kade and seeing how they have grown as the series has grown. Bree and her dog, Samson, are part of a search and rescue team. In Haven of Swans, Bree finds a woman and a child walking down the road. The woman has been stabbed and has no memory due to a head injury. Bree takes her in and helps her to heal and [...]
