Book Review: Tidewater Inn

About the Book:

Welcome to Hope Beach. A place of intoxicating beauty . . . where trouble hits with the force of a hurricane.

Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks 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 the 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 the 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 brother and sister are convinced she’s there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, and Libby’s under suspicion for the crime.

Libby’s dream come true is becoming a nightmare. Her only option is to find her friend and prove her innocence, or lose everything on the shores of Hope Island.

My Opinion
This book and the main character, Libby's, frustrating moments reminded me of myself in my life right now. I could definitely relate as one thing after another went wrong!

This book had me at the edge of my seat with the suspense from the kidnapping, praying that they would find her kidnapped friend, and willing and urging her new found family to accept her! I wanted everything to work out for her in the end!

After reading this book, I wish I could visit Hope Beach because it sounds heavenly as Colleen Coble describes it! Her writing is so expressive and descriptive and it really made the book amazing to read!

Check out this book for a little suspense, romance, and a beautiful vacation destination! Colleen Coble writes with amazing descriptive words and carries you throughout her drama, romance and suspense-filled book! Along the way, she reminds us of the greatest promise of all: God is there with us, he has a plan, and he will never forsake us! It is a great message I think all of us need to hear on a daily basis!
