Tidewater Inn

Welcome to Hope Beach

Where the sea breeze is fresh, sun sparkles on sand . . . and trouble appears with the force of a hurricane.

Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the seaward shore of Hope Island 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 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 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 brothers and sisters are convinced she’s there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, Libby’s under suspicion for the crime, and her handsome lieutenant clearly doubts her innocence.

Libby’s dream-come-true is becoming a nightmare. Can she find her friend and establish her innocence? Must she sell Tidewater Inn and lose her family again? Or can she find a home for her heart on the beautiful shores of Hope Island?

When I read the description for Tidewater Inn on Thomas Nelson Publishing's Booksneeze Blogger program, I wasn't sure if I wanted to request it. I wasn't totally sold on the description of the book. However, I have loved all of Colleen Coble's books that I have read, so I decided to give it a shot. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review, and I am really glad that I did. 

From the opening scene, this book captures the reader's attention and demands to be read.  The characters are real, and the situations kept the reader wanting to know how the characters were going to handle each issue. I enjoyed the book from start to finish and look forward to many more books by Coble.
