Claire Dellamare comes to the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, ME, and almost immediately suffers a panic attack. She feels something terrible happened to her here or will be happening. After her dad, Harry, also there for the meeting to discuss a merger with another firm, calms her down and gets her to her room, she feels better.
Taking a walk to further calm herself, Claire ventures down by the ocean’s edge where she sees two people penning up a baby orca. Furious, she storms down telling them they can’t do that only to meet Luke Ellwell and his sister, Megan, who have rescued the baby and plan to nurse it back to health. Chagrined, Claire apologizes and heads back to the Hotel—but never arrives!
Meanwhile, Kate Mason is planning a surprise for her mom’s birthday. She and her friend, Shelley, remodel her mom’s closet. As they’re unloading the existing closet, Kate finds a box with her things in it she’d forgotten she had—including a well-loved doll. Hoping for approval and maybe a hug from her mother, Kate is once again disappointed. They have a big argument and her mom storms out. What is Kate to do? Why won’t her mom let her contact her dad?
This is Colleen Coble at her best. Lots of suspense, twists, turns, murder, and mystery all wrapped up with surprises and romance. I read the book at one sitting—couldn’t put the novel down. If the rest of the series is as good as The Inn at Ocean’s Edge, I’m going to be reading a lot more Colleen Coble books in the future. So glad to have received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson for my candid review. You will not want to start this book in the evening or you’ll be up all night. Five out of Five Stars!
