In a secluded corner of Hope Beach, one woman must decipher a stranger’s memories . . . before they cost her everything.
Elin Summerall was one of the lucky ones. Not only did she get a heart transplant, but the donor was a perfect fit. A miraculously perfect fit.
But when Elin begins having violent flashbacks—and vivid dreams of being strangled—she realizes that she has been the recipient of more than just a new heart . . . Elin is remembering her donor’s murder.
Her strange affliction has attracted some unwanted attention: from the press, from the authorities . . . and from the killer himself. Now, living alone with her young daughter and aging mother, Elin is being stalked—by a man she’s only met in her nightmares.
The police are dubious of her story, but one off-duty FBI agent agrees to help her: Agent Marc Everton.
Now, in a remote cottage on Hope Island, Elin and Marc must probe the secrets buried in her borrowed heart. And there’s no time to waste. One man is desperate to silence her—before she remembers too much.
Colleen Coble does not disappoint! This book was so interesting.
I always love revisiting places I've read about in prior books of a series. This is the 3rd book in the Hope Beach series and I loved them all.
There was an interesting plot of "cell memory", where the recipient of a transplant has memories that belonged to the organ donor. I don't know how much credence I give this theory but it made for interesting reading.
There were times throughout the story where I just couldn't believe that the main characters weren't more scared or leery. There many threatening notes but the characters kept plugging away like it was nothing.
I enjoyed the plot twist that dealt with Josie, Elin's daughter. I'm glad things came together the way they did.
This was a great romantic/suspense/mystery. I can't wait to see what is next from this author!
