Where the sea breeze is fresh, sun sparkles on sand . . . and trouble appears with the force of a hurricane.
Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the seaward shore of Hope Island 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 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 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 brothers and sisters are convinced she’s there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, Libby’s under suspicion for the crime, and her handsome lieutenant clearly doubts her innocence.
Libby’s dream-come-true is becoming a nightmare. Can she find her friend and establish her innocence?
Must she sell Tidewater Inn and lose her family again? Or can she find a home for her heart on the beautiful shores of Hope Island?

I have a best friend. If I saw her get kidnapped I would go CRAZY! I would be driving people crazy. Knowing that fact really bugged me while reading the first part of this book. I was yelling at this book. Yes... yelling. I wanted her to have a sense of urgency! Bug people until they scoured every island looking for her friend.
Because of the fact that I got so frustrated with her for not doing those things I wound up not liking the book as much as I usually like one of Coble's books. She is really one of my favorite authors, but in this one book I really wanted Libby to be aggressive!
Thanks so much to LitFuse for providing a complimentary copy of this book to me for review.
