The Inn at Ocean's Edge - Colleen Coble


Claire's visit to a luxury hotel in Maine awakens repressed memories, threatening all she holds dear.

In 1989, Claire Dellamare disappeared from her own fourth birthday party at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine. She showed up a year later at the same hotel, with a note pinned to her dress but no explanation. Nobody knows where Claire spent that year---and until now, Claire didn't even know she had ever been missing.
But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents' best efforts to keep them forgotten.
Luke Rocco lost his mother under equally mysterious circumstances---at the same time Claire disappeared. After a chance encounter reveals the unlikely link between them, Claire and Luke set out together to uncover the truth about what happened that fateful year.
With flashbacks swimming just beneath her consciousness and a murderer threatening her safety, Claire's very life depends on unscrambling her past . . . even if her family refuses to acknowledge it. Someone-maybe everyone-is hiding something from Claire Dellamare, and it will cost her everything to drag the truth out into the light.

My Thoughts:

It's been awhile since I have read a Colleen Coble book, but this one definitely had my attention with the ocean and beach theme!  Let me first start out by saying...I am so glad this is the beginning of a new series with her!  

I knew my review date was quickly approaching for this book, but I'd been putting it off because my plate is completely overflowing at this, work, my family, and so on.  My husband was going to be gone this past Friday evening, and all 3 of my children were headed off to grandparent houses for sleepovers.  What better to do on an evening by myself then to cuddle up with a brand new book?  

Within minutes of starting The Inn at Ocean's Edge, I knew I was in trouble...I was hands down hooked, line and sinker!  You see, I hadn't intended to spend my entire evening alone reading, there was, after all, some housework I needed to get done.  But the mystery behind the story line was so intriguing, I just couldn't put it down.  And so, that's how my husband found me when he got home late that night...curled up with Coble's book and an iced tea for company!

Ocean's Edge definitely did not disappoint this reviewer!  I was so caught up in the events of the book, I found myself quickly turning the pages, as if I could speed up my reading any faster.  Mystery and suspense followed me throughout every page, and I found myself trying to solve the case before the characters in the story did!  By the end of the book I was emotionally spent, but satisfied with the ending.  My only regret was that it ended all too soon, and book 2 is not due out for some time.
