About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble- Beach Thriller!

My Thoughts:

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.

What a terrific review! I loved Ruby too. As I was writing the story, my mother in law was sinking deeper and deeper into dementia. It's such a sad and awful disease.
