A Visit to Hope Beach -- Tidewater Inn

About the Book:

Welcome to Hope Beach. A place of intoxicating beauty . . . where trouble hits with the force of a hurricane.

Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks could be a dream come true for Libby. The inn cries out for her restorer’s talent
and love of history. She’s delighted to learn of the family she never knew she had. And the handsome Coast Guard lieutenant she’s met there on the island could definitely be the man of her dreams.

But Libby soon realizes that the only way she can afford the upkeep on the inn is to sell it to developers who are stalking the island. The father who willed her the inn has died before she could meet him, and her newfound brother and sister are convinced she’s there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, and Libby’s under suspicion for the crime.

Libby’s dream come true is becoming a nightmare. Her only option is to find her friend and prove her innocence, or lose everything on the shores of Hope Island.

My Thoughts:
Tidewater Inn has mystery, action, romance -- a mix of elements that make for a great story.  The action grabs you at the very beginning and continues throughout the book with lots of twists and turns to keep you reading and guessing.  The characters are rich and interesting, people whose stories come alive and draw you in.  Their emotions and struggles with faith and personal relationships keep you engaged.

Rosemary Cottage, due for release in July of 2013 will provide an opportunity for readers to return to Hope Beach -- a trip I think will be worth the wait.
