Welcome to Hope Beach
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?
Title: Tidewater Inn
Series: The Hope Beach Series
Publication Date: July 17, 2012
It is hard to imagine how Libby felt when she learned that her father had not died when she was five, but had in fact left her a huge inheritance. She discovered that she had siblings she had never met, and she became the sole owner of a huge historical mansion on a remote beach property.
Mystery, kidnapping, danger and romance seem to follow Libby ever since she arrived on the island. Her siblings are hostile towards her, and they threaten to challenge the will. Nothings seems to be going right, and Libby wonders at times if it's worth fighting for her inheritance.
Tidewater Inn is an inspirational romance with lots of unexpected twists and turns that captured my attention from the start. This would make a great summertime read at the beach.
