First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Colleen Coble and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Seagrass Pier" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

When “Seagrass Pier” by Colleen Coble reached the top of my “to be read” pile of books, I wasn’t really in the mood to start reading it.  But my blog tour date was looming, so I pressed forward.  This incredibly gifted author captured my attention in the first few phrases of this second suspenseful offering in the Hope Beach series.  Colleen Coble certainly knows how to begin telling a story!

Elin is having nightmares.  Normally that wouldn’t be an extraordinary occurrence, but she believes she’s reliving the murder of the woman from whom she received a donor heart!  Marc finds himself back in Elin’s life as he uses his vacation time away from the FBI to unofficially investigate the murder of a friend, during which he learns that Elin believes she is being stalked by her heart donor’s murderer.  Surprisingly, things become even more complicated when Marc learns that he and Elin have a daughter together, resulting from a regrettable one-night-stand several years ago.  Now the stakes are even higher to catch the killer and protect his daughter and her mother from harm.  Especially when his feelings for Elin begin to deepen.

Every time I pick up one of Colleen Coble’s books, it seems that she has become an even better writer.  Her narrative and dialogue flow more smoothly with each novel.  She builds meaty characters and has a gift for writing romantic suspense.  I am a diehard armchair sleuth, and it was both gratifying and frustrating to figure out the whodunit at the point in the novel that I did.  But “Seagrass Pier” is still an enjoyable way to get away for the weekend.
