Welcome to Hope Beach. A place of intoxicating beauty . . . where trouble hits with the force of a hurricane.
Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks could be a dream come true for Libby. The inn cries out for her restorerâs talent and love of history. Sheâs delighted to learn of the family she never knew she had. And the handsome Coast Guard lieutenant sheâs met there on the island could definitely be the man of her dreams.
But Libby soon realizes that the 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 brother and sister are convinced sheâs there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, and Libbyâs under suspicion for the crime.
Libbyâs dream come true is becoming a nightmare. Her only option is to find her friend and prove her innocence, or lose everything on the shores of Hope Island.
Inheriting an old inn on Hope Island is a dream come true for preservationist Libby Holladay. She's also thrilled to find out about family she never knew she had. Libby hopes to get to know her siblings better and would also like to get a lot closer to a good-looking Coast Guard lieutenant. But she soon realizes she can't afford to run the inn. She makes a plan to sell it to developers, putting her at odds with her newfound brothers and sisters. Then her business partner is kidnapped, and Libby falls under suspicion. VERDICT Coble's ("Rock Harbor" mysteries) atmospheric and suspenseful series launch should appeal to fans of Tracie Peterson and other authors of Christian romantic suspense. (c) Copyright 2012.
