Seagrass Pier

GIVEAWAY

COBLE, COLLEEN
SEAGRASS PIER

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.

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.

My Review:

An adrenaline rush of a read! Kind of eerie, definitely goosebumpy, my heart revved up with every turned page. A unique premise gives this incredible suspense a real edge. And Elin and Marc's complicated past made their romance that much more intense. I just couldn't put this book down.

A rich cast of secondary characters flesh out the plot. I fell in love with Elin's precocious daughter, Josie. That little sweetheart stole every scene she was in and had Marc wrapped around her little finger. There's nothing more swoonworthy than a hero who has a soft spot for kids.

Clear your calendar for this one because you'll want to devour it in one sitting.

    1. I've noticed that blogger has been playing teasing games lately. Either not posting a comment, or posting them double. Don't know what's up with that. I think this is definitely one you would enjoy, Cheryl. Good luck!

  14. Hi Kav. Another interesting review. Colleen seems to have some nice books around. If I were rich I would probably spend a big portion on books.:) But I'm a slow reader and love my authors online, so has shortened my reading hours. This one sounds scary. Can't imagine getting someone's memories with a transplant. Might make a body think twice if they really want to do it. Please put my name in. Thanks! Maxie
