Seagrass pier, a review for a great 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.
Seagrass pier is one of Colleen Cobble's many romance and suspense novels, and it's book three in her hope beach series. Now I do recommend reading them in order, but you can read them out of order (I have done that with many of Colleen's book series) Now onto the real review!
Unexpectedly Colleen jumped right into the story, most times we get a little background before going into the main story, but it was very being thrown into the fray of this marvelous story! and it makes one think of the possibilities that must of us write off as pure craziness, such as inheriting the memories from another, such as the previous owner of Elin's new heart. These memories are of Laura's murder, and Elin relives it all each night. Scary right?
Now most people thought this was crazy, and i admit I've heard cases of this on the news and thought it was impossible, but we all need to keep this verse in mind when we hear about these sort of things.
"For nothing is impossible with God" Luke 1:37
Now Colleen made a point that Laura's soul had passed on, so I was happy to see that pointed out when Elin started to fear she was becoming more and more like the true owner of her heart.
I found the full cast of characters a great mix, switching from the intense mystery of Laura's murder to the romance between two couples, and many other twist throughout the book. Colleen has once again brought us another great thought provoking novel. I highly suggest finding a big comfy couch to sit on and read this book!
I got this book from the booklook blogging program in exchange for an honest review, which I have given
