I am confessing~ I started this book in one evening and read into the early morning hours until I finished it. The minute I picked it up I was captivated by Libby. A poor and struggling small business owner who restores historical buildings with her friend and business partner. They find themselves in the middle of big trouble when Libby's partner is kidnapped before her eyes~ all the while
Libby is the main suspect.
Libby learns that she has just inherited the Tidewater Inn from her father whom she thought was dead for many years. Only her new found brother and sister want nothing to do with her and bitter that their father would leave such any expensive piece of their inheritance to a daughter who had nothing to do with their father. Nothing is as it seems.
This book is full of suspense, romance and hope. I so enjoyed reading this book.
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.
