The last thing that Elin Summerall expected when she received her new heart, was a fresh new start on life with her young daughter Josie. What she didn't expect was to have the memories of the former recipient to become her own. They call it cell memory, when you begin to remember events and memories from the host organ, in this case her heart. All she knows is that the heart came from a murdered woman named Laura whose killer has never been found. When Elin begins to share her suspicions with those closest to her, they believe it's all in her head. But when she begins to receive threats on her life, those are things you simply can't ignore no matter how far fetched they sound.
When Elin purchases an old Victorian cottage on Hope Beach. she hopes she has left the threats behind. But Elin's past is catching up to her. When she confesses to Marc Everton, an FBI agent and friend, that their one night of passion, has left more than a passing memory in her life, but also that Josie is really his child, he is more than angry. He can't believe that Elin has lied to him for more than four years about his daughter, even marrying another man in the process in order to keep her identity hidden. But will he be able to trust her when she makes claims that a murderer of the woman who gave her a heart is now after her and the memories of that night are becoming her own? Will Marc be able to protect his daughter now that the threats have followed them all to the isolated beach cottage and the threat has gotten more personal and violent?
Best selling author Colleen Coble has ramped up her suspense level in her latest novel in the Hope Beach series, with Seagrass Pier. This is the third book in the series and now the hunt is on to find the man who killed Laura before he takes his vengeance out on Marc and Elin as well as anyone that stands in his way. The nightmares that Elin keeps having brings her closer to the clues that will identify him, if they can find him before he finds them. All she has to go on is the color of his hair, the cologne he wears and the ring that may in fact be the one thing that he can't hide. Now that Elin has moved her family out to a isolated historic beach cottage, she is hoping she can protect them all including her mother who is suffering from dementia. But has this proved to be her fatal mistake? You'll want to pick this one up and find out how it all turns out!
I received Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble compliments of Thomas Nelson Publisher and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. I was more than surprised to find myself reading this late one night and getting pretty scared while walking around my own home. To me, that is a sign of a great novel! One that takes me beyond words on a page and instead places me in the heart-pounding action like Elin's character who is being stalked in a cat and mouse like game of suspense. One of the best suspense novels I've read in quite some time and easily enough for me to give this one a 5 out of 5 stars in my book. Warning: You might want to read this one during the daytime! It's pretty suspenseful to read at night!!!
