Claire Dellamore can feel it in her bones. Once upon a time, something bad happened. One upon a time, she was here. So why can’t she remember anything? While visiting a seaside inn to close a business deal Claire is bombarded with anxiety that is somehow tied to a place that refuses to give up its secrets. When a chance encounter between Coast Guardsman Luke Elwell and his sister penetrates a small piece of her memory Claire embarks on a journey that may leave her with many regrets…and maybe even worse.
Can I just say – wow! Colleen Coble never ceases to amaze. This is just another one of her thrilling tales that proves that statement ten times over. I very very rarely wander into contemporary fiction let alone murder mysteries. Leave it to Coble to get me out of my comfort zone and leave me super spooked. I really didn’t know what to expect when I popped the book open. Just about everything that Coble has written in history I have loved but contemporary…well, we’re treading new water. The decision turned out to be one of my few wise ones and I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to read this book. The plot, the characters, basically everything I loved (except the typos – there were a few that left me scratching my head until I figured out it was a typo. Duh!). It was fast-paced and a little lengthy (but not lengthy enough!). The characters and turn of events kept me guessing well into the wee hours of the night/morning.
After I finished reading I visited the library madly looking for any books similar to this by the same author. What a relief to locate two.
