The Inn at Ocean's Edge by Colleen Coble A Review


Claire’s visit to a luxury hotel in Maine awakens repressed memories, threatening all she holds dear.

In 1989, Claire Dellamare disappeared from her own fourth birthday party at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine. She showed up a year later at the same hotel, with a note pinned to her dress but no explanation. Nobody knows where Claire spent that year—and until now, Claire didn’t even know she had ever been missing.

But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents’ best efforts to keep them forgotten.

Luke Rocco lost his mother under equally mysterious circumstances—at the same time Claire disappeared. After a chance encounter reveals the unlikely link between them, Claire and Luke set out together to uncover the truth about what happened that fateful year.

With flashbacks swimming just beneath her consciousness and a murderer threatening her safety, Claire’s very life depends on unscrambling her past . . . even if her family refuses to acknowledge it. Someone—maybe everyone—is hiding something from Claire Dellamare, and it will cost her everything to drag the truth out into the light.

 I haven’t read any books by Colleen Coble for awhile and had forgotten what an excellent author she is. Reading one of her books will keep you reading late into the night and on the edge of your seat.
  I just finished The Inn at Ocean's Edge and all I can say is WOW, what a great story.
 I love the characters, story line and every single thing about it. Just when I think I have the story figured out Colleen throws up another road block. She is an amazing author.
  Claire and Luke are so very different, but also so very much alike. They meet quite by chance and the things that link them together are remarkable. His mother was killed and they think Claire was there and witnessed it when she was only 4. She doesn’t remember anything, but that was 20 some years ago.
Will Claire remember, will Luke keep his distance, because he isn’t in the same class as Claire? Will they find the killer who is after Claire now before he succeeds?
  Love this book and give it 5-stars plus more if I could. Highly recommended book. A must read.
