Christian fiction / Mystery / Suspense / Romance
A story of family ties and love that binds them together...
Claire Dellamare unexpectedly joins her CEO father at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine, in hopes of closing a merger which would only increase their presence in the aviation world. Yet, as she is checking in, she is overcome by a full blown panic attack. What could trigger that in a place she had never been? Or had she?
"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 now, Claire didn't even know she had ever been missing" (back cover).
With flashes of memory and help from Luke, a Coast Guardsman whose mother went missing the same time Claire did, they begin their own investigation to uncover the truth surrounding Claire's and his mother's disappearance 25 years earlier.
I have enjoyed Colleen Coble's books in the past - Tidewater Inn, Seagrass Pier, Smitten, and Safe in His Arms. But The Inn at Ocean's Edge has surpassed them all! From the very first page until the closing paragraph, I was pulled into the mystery and suspense surrounding Claire and Luke. Would they be able to solve this mystery before serious harm comes to Claire? Why does the local law enforcement seem to be stonewalling? Will her family survive the truth as it is slowly exposed?
My rating - 6 out of 5 stars A+
Can I do that..... I sure can!
I received a complimentary copy of The Inn at Ocean's Edge from Thomas Nelson Publisher and their BookLook Bloggers program for my honest review.
