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.

I have been loving Colleen Coble's Hope Beach series, and Seagrass Pier is another gripping read. An expert at romantic suspense, Coble raises the chill factor of this novel by adding the facet of cell memory into the story, and the danger stalking Elin and the accompanying emotions are palpable. As if her personal safety isn't frightening enough, she must deal with being a single parent to her daughter as well as care for her mother, whose increasing dementia brings its own challenges. Tense moments abound in this story, making it impossible to put down. I highly recommend this book and this series!

I almost signed up for this tour, but because of my stacking TBR pile I couldn't. I love Colleen Coble and this series sounds really interesting though! Thanks for convincing me to try it out. :)

I have seen a lot about Colleen Coble lately, all good.
I have not had the pleasure of reading her novels, yet.
