The Inn At Ocean's Edge

GIVEAWAY

COBLE, COLLEEN
THE INN AT OCEAN'S EDGE

Claire's visit to a luxury hotel in Maine awakens repressed memories, threatening all she holds dear.

In 1989, Claire Dellamare disappeared from her own fourth birthday party at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine. She showed up a year later at the same hotel, with a note pinned to her dress but no explanation. Nobody knows where Claire spent that year---and until now, Claire didn't even know she had ever been missing.

But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents' best efforts to keep them forgotten.

Luke Rocco lost his mother under equally mysterious circumstances---at the same time Claire disappeared. After a chance encounter reveals the unlikely link between them, Claire and Luke set out together to uncover the truth about what happened that fateful year.

With flashbacks swimming just beneath her consciousness and a murderer threatening her safety, Claire's very life depends on unscrambling her past . . . even if her family refuses to acknowledge it. Someone-maybe everyone-is hiding something from Claire Dellamare, and it will cost her everything to drag the truth out into the light.

My Review:

Totally riveting. Don't blink or you'll miss something important in this twisty, turny tale of suspense. Mercy, but I barely came up for air! My heart started racing from the compelling opening scene right through to the hyperventilating conclusion.

Claire's arrival at the Inn at Ocean's Edge is the catalyst that threatens a host of buried secrets and puts her life in danger. But that's not all she's dealing with. The emotional ramifications that come from a multitude of revelations leaves her -- and the reader -- reeling. If I had a dollar for every time I said, "I didn't see that coming" I'd be able to buy a truckload of books! I love it when a suspense writer keeps me on my toes.

Coble isn't stingy in the romance department either. There's definitely a crackle of attraction from Claire and Luke's very memorable first meet. And things just keep heating up as the story progresses. It's a complicated relationship developed in the midst of chaos and I love Luke's steadying presence and unwavering belief in Claire. Some lovely romantical scenes bring much needed relief from all that intensity in the suspense plot.

A stunning beginning to a new series by an incredible author.

My thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group and Thomas Nelson for supplying me with a review copy of this book.
