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.
Colleen Coble has sold over 2 million novels worldwide. Seagrass Pier, the third installment in her acclaimed Hope Beach series, marks a new highpoint for emotion and complexity in Coble's addictive brand of romantic suspense.
Elin has a new lease on life, so she thinks, when she receives a heart transplant. Then the stalking begins and she doesn't know why. Also, the flashbacks of memories that are not her own also start. She needs to get away from the stalker and she buys an old Victorian home in hopes of a fresh start.
The thoughts and flashes of memory that are not her own are caused by cell memory from the heart she received. The woman that the heart came from was murdered and this is when the suspense begins. The stalker realizes that she remembers things and he is determined to stop her before she can reveal his identity.
Then an FBI agent, Marc, enters her life because he is investigating the murder of her donor and the murder of his partner, which he believes are connected in some way. Their relationship is complicated by the fact that he doesn't believe her memories.
I really liked this book. It got my attention from page one and was a real thrilling storyline throughout. It was one of those books that I didn't want to put down because I was enjoying it so much. This storyline was really different, but the author really was able to pull it off as believable. I love stories like where I grow to really love the characters and think about them long after I've put the book down. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
