Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble

Colleen Coble's newest book in the Hope Beach Series is out!  This is the third book in the series and is another great murder mystery novel.  You can read my reviews of book 1--Tidewater Inn  here and book 2--Rosemary Cottage here.

From the Back of the Book:
     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.

My Review:
Colleen Coble has written another great novel.  It was a quick read since the story compelled me to stay up to the wee hours of the morning finishing chapter after chapter.  The characters really draw you into the story and the plot has you wondering who is the real culprit.  Elin has a lot of changes happening in her life with her mother, heart transplant and husband.  I appreciate the vulnerability written into her character.  It makes her believable; although, the cell memory theory was a new one to me.  I had no idea there was such a theory like that out there.  This theory believes that a the recipient of a heart transplant, as in this case, actually has cravings and memories from the deceased.  I will say that strange things can happen, but who knows. 
So if you're looking for a series that is thrilling and will keep you up reading late at night, pick up Colleen Coble's Hope Beach series.

***I received this book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
