Tidewater Inn is the first book in Ms. Coble's new Hope Beach series. It is the story of Libby Holladay, a restorer of historical buildings and Alec Bourne, a Coast Guard lieutenant. Their story takes place in the Outer Banks and it is a story filled with suspense and a very sweet romance. There are twists and turns in the story that will keep you guessing right up until the very end. I must say I was totally surprised at the end of the book.
There are several things that keep drawing me back over and over again to Ms. Coble's books. Her characters, settings and the suspense that she weaves into most all of her books are beyond compare. She has a knack of creating warm, caring and very believable characters. I find one thing that she does with each leading character that I always look forward to learning. They all have a quirk about them. In her Rock Harbor series, Bree, had a passion for pistachio nuts. In Tidewater Inn Libby has a passion for jalapeno jelly beans. Oh, and not to create a spoiler, but if you are a fan of Bree and Samson, from the Rock Harbor series, you must read this book.
I would highly recommend Tidewater Inn to anyone looking for a good Christian book that offers romance, suspense, forgiveness and renewing family ties. In my humble opinion, you can never go wrong in reading a book by Colleen Coble.
On a 5-Star scale - 5 BIG wonderful stars!!!!!
