Distant Echoes wraps you into a world of espionage, intrigue, and love set in the tropical paradise of Hawaii where the native culture conflicts with the Navy presence. Colleen Coble creates characters you can love including a dolphin that nearly steals the show. These characters struggle with political and social issues while at the same time worrying about their own jobs and families. Once I got started I could not set it down. I suggest reading this book in the morning.

Plot Summary: What happens, When & Where, Central Characters, Major ConflictsKaia loves her life in Hawaii and her work with dolphins--especially Nani. Nani even helps her rescue several people when an errant missle hits a pleasure boat. Unfortunately they weren't able to save her cousin Laban who owned the boat. Kaia then gets involved with Jesse, a navy security officer who is convinced recent security breaches at the base are connected to the missle mishap. He wants Kaia to patrol the waters with her dolphin. She reluctantly agrees and they are off on an adventure that involves a suspicious Hawaii secessionist group, Jesse's neice Heidi, a new boss who wants to turn the research facility into a theme park, and the reappearance of Kaia's mother, who abadoned her when she was a little girl. Oh, and a romance between Kaia and Jesse.Style Characterisics: Pacing, clarity, structure, narrative devices, etc.A lot going on, the suspense and the dolphin angle are very good. The characters are believable but not extremely well developed. The plot moves along at a good clip, though there are lots of tangents. The point of view shifts from character to character but there is no problem following the story. Some parts I found unbelievable--the ability of the search dog to track a character taken away in a car. The main characters go through a lot and I felt that the exploration of their emotional response was minimal. There is a good message about forgiveness and the Grandfather character is memorable. The romance seemed superficial as well.How Good is it?A good romantic suspense and escapist read, especially for the reader who loves animals and the culture of Hawaii.

Colleen Coble in her new book “Distant Echoes” Book One in the Aloha Reef  series published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Kaia Oana. From the back cover:   It feels like paradise, but deadly secrets lie beneath the waves off the coast of Kauai. Sometimes Kaia Oana thinks her dolphins are more humane than humans. As a mammal intelligence researcher, Kaia has learned a thing or two about the goodness and intelligence of dolphins—and as a natural scientist in close proximity to weapons developers, she’s learned a thing or two about humans as well. When a tourist catamaran explodes off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, Kaia and her trained dolphin, Nani, rush to aid the search and rescue effort. After hours of searching, an exhausted Kaia is pulled from the water by Lieutenant Commander Jesse Matthews of the U.S. Navy. Lieutenant Matthews is accustomed to following protocol—and a civilian-dolphin rescue is not typical operating procedure. But when his colleagues ignore the possibility that missile research had something to do with the sunken catamaran, Jesse recruits Kaia and her dolphin to help him conduct his own investigation. The olive-skinned mermaid had impressed him—in more ways than one. As their rogue investigation takes them into the waters surrounding the sunken boat—and their personal chemistry takes them into other uncharted territory—Kaia and Jesse discover that they have become targets themselves. Someone doesn’t want them snooping around that wreckage . . . someone desperate enough to kill. I have been a big fan of Hawaii ever since I watched the TV series, “Hawaiian Eye” Invite me back to Hawaii for some kind of adventure and I am there with you. Tell me that Colleen Coble has written a mystery thriller set on the island of Kauai and I am super excited. Ms. Coble always delivers top-notch exciting stories. Add in that this one also involves a dolphin and this book has entered orbit. Kaia and Jeff are well drawn characters that I liked a lot. There are many story-lines that Ms. Coble weaves together in this book and each one, by itself, is interesting taken all together and they will keep you hoping. And on top of everything there is a romance.  This is a fast-paced read that will keep you guessing as to what is really going on.  I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
