As an avid fan of Colleen Coble, I could hardly wait to read her newest release Seagrass Pier. This book is the third in the Hope Beach series. The first in the series is Tidewater Inn (read my review here) and the second is Rosemary Cottage (read my review here). Both were excellent books to read. I must admit that Seagrass Pier is excellent as well.
The story of Seagrass Pier takes place at Hope Beach in North Carolina and is the story of Elin Summerall who works in organ procurements and FBI agent Marc Everton. Elin and Marc had known each other in the past and what Marc doesn't know is that he is the father of Elin's daughter, four year old Josie.
Elin had to have a heart transplant due to a life-threatening virus and now she is experiencing dreams and vision's of the woman who's heart is now hers. This woman was brutally murdered and because an article was done on how Elin is remembering bits and pieces of her donor's life, Elin's life is now in jeopardy.
Elin has moved out to Seagrass Pier with Josie and her mother Ruby. Her mother is suffering from early onset Alzheimer Disease and this makes things a little more difficult for Elin to cope with in her life. She finally tells Marc that he is Josie's father and although he is furious at first he soon finds himself enjoying being Josie's daddy and getting closer to Elin.
Packed with twists and turns that take the reader on a fast paced suspenseful ride, Seagrass Pier is probably my favorite book in Ms. Coble's "A Hope Beach Novel" series. She has a knack for creating strong-willed, believable characters that once they pull you in, they never let go. Not even after you turn that last page.
I would highly recommend Seagrass Pier to anyone who enjoys a good clean suspenseful read. Ms. Coble always delivers well plotted and captivating novels that allows the reader to escape into a fast paced suspenseful world. This book reads as a stand-alone book but characters from the previous books are mentioned or have bit parts in this book. Go out an pick up a copy. I guarantee you, you will not be dissatisfied
On a 5-Star scale = 5 HUGE Stars!!!!!
I would like to thank Litfuse Publicity and Thomas Nelson for my Advanced Reader's Copy of Seagrass Pier. I received my copy fo free in order to read it and give my honest review, which I have done..
