Seagrass Pier, the third of the Hope Beach Novels by Colleen Coble, is a story full of mystery. By that I mean there’s more than one contained in this complicated book. Elin Summerall is thankful when she receives a life-saving heart transplant. A widow with a daughter to raise and a mother with dementia to care for, Elin wants to live. She soon discovers she got more than life with her new heart. She also got the former owner’s memories of being murdered—and the threat of being murdered herself.
Though this is the third book in a series, it stands alone. Seagrass Pier is a remote location compared to Tidewater Inn and Rosemary Cottage, so characters in this new book don’t have much interaction with characters from those two. Readers who’ve read the earlier books will be happy to learn more about some of the minor coast guard characters, however, who carry a bit of the story on their own. As far as that goes, new readers won’t even know they’ve missed anything. All will be happy to get to know the new characters while trying to untangle the confusion of all that’s going on and while discovering just a bit more about what it is that makes us who we are.
Thomas Nelson Publishers sent me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I’m thankful! I’m enjoying keeping up with events on Colleen Coble’s Hope Island.
