Tidewater Inn by Colleen Coble

About the Book:

Welcome to Hope Beach

Where the sea breeze is fresh, sun sparkles on sand . . . and trouble appears with the force of a hurricane.

Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the seaward shore of Hope Island 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 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 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 brothers and sisters are convinced she’s there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, Libby’s under suspicion for the crime, and her handsome lieutenant clearly doubts her innocence.

Libby’s dream-come-true is becoming a nightmare. Can she find her friend and establish her innocence? Must she sell Tidewater Inn and lose her family again? Or can she find a home for her heart on the beautiful shores of Hope Island?

My Review:

4 Stars

Beach, mystery, secluded island, romance and so much more is found in Colleen Coble's newest book, Tidewater Inn. This book is the first book in her new Hope Beach series and I am now anxiously waiting for the next one to be released.  I loved the setting of this book and the cover of the book helps set it too. I could picture the location and the super super small town that exists. It sounds like such a peaceful and relaxing place. All the characters in this book were fun to read about and came alive on the pages. I really enjoyed the mystery portion and was hard to figure out what was going to happen next which is great. Overall this is a great book for everyone and would make a great beach read.
