Welcome to Hope Beach. A place of intoxicating beauty . . . where trouble hits with the force of a hurricane.
Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks could be a dream come true for Libby. The inn cries out for her restorer's talent and love of history. She's delighted to learn of the family she never knew she had. And the handsome Coast Guard lieutenant she's met there on the island could definitely be the man of her dreams.
But Libby soon realizes that the only way she can afford the upkeep on the inn is to sell it to developers who are stalking the island. The father who willed her the inn has died before she could meet him, and her newfound brother and sister are convinced she's there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, and Libby's under suspicion for the crime.
Libby's dream come true is becoming a nightmare. Her only option is to find her friend and prove her innocence, or lose everything on the shores of Hope Island.
What a riveting read! Plot twists abound as Coble packs every scene with intrigue and suspense. Libby finds herself in an impossible situation that only grows worse with each page turn. There are mysteries inside mysteries in Tidewater Inn that leaves the heroine (and her readers) fighting to maintain their equilibrium right to the very end.
The author has created an interesting mix of characters along with an alluring hero to help (or hinder) Libby's quest for the truth. And Coble fans will be thrilled to find Bree and her search and rescue dog, Samson ( Rock Harbor series) lending a hand (or paw, as the case may be.) Tidewater Inn is a book you won't want to put down once you've opened it, so clear your calendar and be prepared to be swept away by this tumultuous story.
