Genre:  Romantic suspense

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.

THE INN AT OCEAN’S EDGE is the first book in Ms. Coble’s new series, A Sunset Cove. I enjoyed getting to know Luke and Claire. Claire is a typical rich girl who had it all handed to her on a silver platter—on one hand. On the other, she is not at all as she seems. Luke is kind and loving, but suspicious and firm. I loved how he believed whole-heartedly in Claire even though he just met her.

At first I thought this book might be somewhat predictable. I figured out who-dun-it fairly early on. But then Ms. Coble threw unexpected twists in the plot. I had to keep reading to find out what really happened… and what it might mean for Claire and Luke.

If you like romantic suspense, you will love THE INN AT OCEAN’S EDGE. Great book. Ms. Coble is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors.
