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

“Complex characters and a tense plot make this a thrilling tale of romantic suspense. Fans of the other titles in the series will not be disappointed with this gripping installment, and the intricate and eerie story line will entice readers who enjoy books by Ted Dekker, Iris Johansen, and J.D. Robb.” —Library Journal 

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 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.

    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.

    Review: I love Colleen Coble books and this one is another winner. It is a great standalone book with some of the previous characters showing up from the other Hope Beach books. I loved the secondary mystery and was a little sad this was not played out a little more, but was just as exciting. I loved the mystery and was putting the pieces together as Marc and Elin were. They made a fun couple to read about and the entire book was filled with an enjoyable storyline and great characters. They were introduced slowly and blossomed the storyline even greater. Since I began reading Colleen Coble’s books the one quality that has never changed is the spine chilling fun that her mysteries pack in them.
    I would like to thank Net Galley and Thomas Nelson Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    Do hearts have a memory? Elin Summerall believes that perhaps they do. When she had her heart transplant, she received the heart of a murder victim, one whose murder was never solved. Now she is having flashes of scenes which she personally never experienced. Someone seems to be stalking her and perhaps believes that this young widow knows something as well.
    Marc Everton has not seen Elin since the night neither of them wish to remember, the night Josie was conceived. Marc has no idea Josie exists. When Marc, now an FBI agent, comes asking questions about the murder, he discovers that he has a daughter as well as there being more to the facts he is pursuing than he had anticipated.
    Elin moves to Hope Island with Josie and her mother who suffers from dementia. Marc follows them there, both to get to know his daughter and to get more information to help solve the murder of his partner. In addition, there is a 100-year-old mystery as well as drug smugglers who are evading the Coast Guard. Needless to say, there is enough action to keep even the most bored reader alert to the end.
    Having read most of Colleen Coble’s books, I always have come to expect a good mystery. The idea of “cell memory” made for an interesting twist to this book. This is the third Hope Island book, but you do not have to have read Rosemary Cottage or Tidewater Inn to enjoy this.
    I received this from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

    Colleen Coble offers another compelling novel, rich in characters and mystery. Although this book is clean, as all of Colleen's books, I felt it lacked the Godly depth in the character's lives that I have discovered in other novels she has written.

    The knowledge Elin has obtained from the heart she received was an interesting plot, and encouraged me to do additional research on this topic. Colleen is a detailed author who never disappoints to never allow any loose ends at the conclusion of her writing.

    The suspense held me at the edge of my seat until the conclusion of the final chapter. This would be an excellent summer read for your vacation. It comes highly recommended.
