I've not read many books by Colleen Coble -- yet -- but it hasn't taken many for me to become a fan. Just like the previous two books in her Hope Beach series, Seagrass Pier has just the right mix of romance and suspense.
Colleen has put together an interesting cast of characters -- several I would love to know in real life, and a few I would never want to run into. The suspense keeps the plot moving at a very intriguing pace and keeps you guessing about who the bad guys really are. The romance is very strong in the story and portrayed in ways I expect and appreciate in Christian fiction.
Seagrass Pier works very well as a stand-alone novel, but I would definitely recommend the entire series to anyone who enjoys a great romantic suspense story. If you've read the other books, you will recognize some of the characters in this story.
Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About the book:
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.
