"the inn at ocean's edge" by colleen coble

Colleen Coble is at the top of her game with the romantic and suspenseful The Inn at Ocean's Edge.

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.

Colleen Coble is known for combining romance and suspense, and I have to admit that oftentimes I've found one or the other lacking. Not so with The Inn at Ocean's Edge! Coble has written a romantic suspense novel that serves the romance well while providing great twists and turns. The suspense is crafted in such a way that the twists are completely believable, yet still wholly surprising.

The novel is written from the perspectives of Claire, Luke, and Kate, a woman with serious medical issues who is desperate to contact the father who abandoned her. The paths of the three intertwine in surprising ways, making for a very satisfying novel.

The Inn at Ocean's Edge is the first in Coble's new Sunset Cove series, and I'm looking forward to book two's release in December. Fans of romantic suspense will definitely want to check this book out! 5 stars.
