Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble, a Book Review

Seagrass-Pier-e1400086545129About the Book:  In a secluded corner of Hope Beach, one woman must decipher a stranger's memories . . . before they cost her everything.

Elin Summerall was one of the lucky ones. Not only did she get a heart transplant, but the donor was a perfect fit. A miraculously perfect fit.

But when Elin begins having violent flashbacks—and vivid dreams of being strangled—she realizes that she has been the recipient of more than just a new heart . . . Elin is remembering her donor's murder.

Her strange affliction has attracted some unwanted attention: from the press, from the authorities . . . and from the killer himself. Now, living alone with her young daughter and aging mother, Elin is being stalked—by a man she's only met in her nightmares.

The police are dubious of her story, but one off-duty FBI agent is eager to help her: Agent Marc Everton, the father of Elin's daughter.

Of course, he doesn't know about that. Yet.

Now, in a remote cottage on Hope Island, Elin and Marc must probe the secrets buried in her borrowed heart. And there's no time to waste. One man is desperate to silence her—before she remembers too much.

My Review: Colleen's third book in the Hope Beach series was a great read. The background story of Elin's heart transplant and memories had me scouring the internet to find out more about these transferred memories. Turns out it does happen!

A romantic story coupled with suspense is a good book to take on vacation, which I did.

Some of your favorite characters from previous books in the series make an appearance and help to add to the story.

This book starts right off with Elin's memories of her donor's murder and the suspense doesn't let up from the. The palpable tension between her and Marc, especially after he learns that he has a daughter is a great background touch to the whole story.

This book kept me guessing until the end. Whodunit I did know til it was almost over.

This is a page turner and may have you staying up late to find out what happens next. While this is book three of a series I feel like it stands pretty well on it's own just in case you want to dig right in.

I have read many of Colleen's books and really liked them but I feel like this is even better than her usual good book. Christian Romantic Suspense readers will enjoy this book.
