Product Description

One season, Erin Summerall contracted a virus that damaged her heart to the point that she required a transplant to live. She was blessed to have a matching donor, but something very strange started happening to her, almost as if she took on the personality of the heart donor. Her tastes changed in small and large ways, but most strange of all, were her "memories" of a murder she had never witnessed, but could give clear details of the scenes and location to the disbelieving police officer.Unfortunately, her revelation exposed her as a "witness" who made her fear for both her mother and her daughter's life. To hide, she fled to a remote cottage that is only accessible by boat, on Hope Beach. Knowing she can trust Mark Everton with her life, she pleas for her. There's a catch; she never told Marc about being pregnant their daughter before she left the island. How can she bring the killer to justice and reconcile herself and Marc to the "new" Erin?

Publisher's Description

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 agrees to help her: Agent Marc Everton.

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.

    I've read many of Colleen Coble's books and this one is top of my list right now. I'm talking heart thumping, fast breathing, sitting on the edge of my seat suspense! I kept second guessing the culprit vs the good guy. A woman who works in an organ donor center, matching donor organs with recipients develops a heart virus and needs a heart transplant herself. She receives a heart from a woman that was murdered. She begins to see and feel things coming from the woman's heart. She actually has visions of the murder. When it's publicized she starts getting threats from the murderer, thinking she will figure out who he (or she) is. Throw in her husband who has died, a daughter who thinks he's her biological dad and a friend who doesn't know he's the real dad, and that just adds to all the excitement and suspense!

    A Great Escape!

    Every time I pick up a novel by Colleen Coble I know I'm going to read a great book! Seagrass Pier definitely met that definition and was a great addition to The Hope Beach series.

    Okay. Let me just go ahead and say that I LOVED Elin and Marc. They were a great couplewith plenty of conflict and romantic tension and sweet moments. I definitely felt bad for Marc when he learns a life-changing truth. (Not cool, Elin!) And things seemed to pile on Elin at times. However, it was refreshing to see how she grew as she had to deal with so many challenges. I enjoyed reading all the ups and downs ... which made for an interesting story.

    The suspense didn't seem quite as suspenseful as some of Coble's other novels, but there was still plenty going on that had me scratching my head and flipping the pages. Overall, I truly enjoyed this story and recommend it to anyone looking for a mental escape as the summer winds down. [4 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    Elin was on her way to a life of healing not only emotionally but physically since her heart transplant. That is until she started having flashbacks of her donor's murder. This disrupted her life more than she could bare. She feared the murderer was now after her very own life.

    FBI agent, Marc Everton was the only official willing to investigate the case. He did this due to the fact that he had a connection with Elin in that he was the biological father of Elin's daughter.

    WOW! Talk about eerie, this story was riveting, spine tingling and really made me think hard about the implications made by the recipient of the heart. Still there is romance, mystery, intrigue and much more in this story. I suggest you keep your lights on, your doors and windows locked while reading this book. You will not want to trust anyone. Sorry this is coming from my own fear and insecurities. Hee! Hee!

    I highly recommend/dare you to read this book.

    Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group/Thomas Nelson for an honest review.

    Seagrass Pier is the third book in Colleen Coble's Hope Beach series. I had really enjoyed the previous books and was anxiously awaiting this one. I'm sorry to say that it fell a bit short of my expectations.

    Ms. Coble deals with a controversial subject in this novel - cell memory. Do those who receive donor organs actually know or remember things about their donor? Even going so far as having flashbacks that are not their own? I have to admit that I was a little put off by this plot, though I did manage to put that unease aside through most of the book and just enjoy the story.

    Ms. Coble once again does an excellent job of writing a story that keeps you intrigued and wanting to know what will happen next. The descriptions were wonderful, the writing very well done, and the mystery fascinating. This is one of the few mysteries I've read where I seriously considered skipping to the end and finding out who the villain was, and then finishing the book.

    Elin Summerall is one of the protagonists in this story. She is a very compelling character and I easily related to her. She is strong and determined, but also kind and caring. She really struggles with the cell memory and the flashbacks that come with it. She also contends with her fear of changing and becoming someone she doesn't recognize.

    Marc Everton is the "hero" in the book. He is the typical romance hero - strong, determined, stubborn, but with a soft spot for Elin and her daughter. I actually liked him a good deal, though I found a couple of his reactions a little unrealistic for the current events. As we learn early in the book, he has been wronged by Elin in the past, but seems to rather easily forgive her, though his anger at the situation does pop up once in a while. I suppose I was hoping for a bit more resolution between them, but the issue is rarely discussed. I enjoyed the story coming from his view point and getting to see everything through his eyes. He is also a strong Christian and endeavors to help Elin find who she is beyond all of the surface things that may change.

    Marc and Elin's relationship is interesting. They've been friends for years, though they haven't seen each other for two of them. While they have the aforementioned issue between them, the chemistry is definitely there. I enjoyed how honest they both were and how they managed to move beyond the past and get to know each other anew.

    As I already commented, the mystery had me very intrigued. It is rather intricate, with a couple things going on at once, that seem to have no connection to each other. I found it a little confusing at times and wasn't always sure what was going on. I had to keep going over it in my head, trying to keep up, and I still have a couple questions. I may have to read the ending again in an attempt to figure them out. I do appreciate how Ms. Coble somehow kept it all together without getting something mixed up.

    My only other complaint is that the book comes from several different view points. That usually doesn't bother me, but with two mysteries, along with several characters to keep up with, it became quite confusing. A few times it would be afternoon, then skip to morning for another point of view and somehow still be the same day. I kept trying to figure out how they went back in time.

    I'm disappointed that I didn't enjoy it more, but overall, I would say this is a good, if somewhat complex book. I have enjoyed Ms. Coble's previous books, so I will definitely be looking forward to the next.

    I recommend this book if you enjoy complex mysteries with compelling characters.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher through The Christian Manifesto for my honest review, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.
