Another fabulous Hope Beach thriller by Colleen Coble! Seagrass Pier begins in the midst of a nightmare followed by the alarming sound of breaking glass. The fear Elin Summerall is experiencing is all too real- and yet no one seems to believe her. Following a heart transplant, Elin begins to change in subtle ways. She selects different clothes, prefers different music and has flashbacks from the heart donor- who was murdered. I loved the whole premise of this book. Nightmares/flashbacks from an organ donor, an unsolved murder, a gorgeous, remote house on the beach, and an antique map that's been hidden along with it's secrets. Colleen Coble knows what her readers want! Of course, she delights us with a swoon worthy love story in the midst of the mystery, too. :) My favorite character was Elin's mother, Ruby. Due to a series of strokes, she's experiencing early dementia and struggles for much of the story. Yet, through moments of clarity, she's able to rise to the occasion and be a hero to her daughter. She deserves a round of applause! The beach, an old diary, a forgotten mystery, and a love story that seems destined to never happen kept me anxiously reading until the very end. Bravo Colleen Coble!
About 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.
