You are a witness to the kidnapping of your best friend
Your father who you were told as a child was dead, only recently passed away with a last wish
A cave that holds many secrets
A family you never knew--
What would you do if you witnessed your best friend and business partner kidnapped while watching a beach webcam on your computer from many miles away? How well would you hold up knowing the authorities suspect you? Would you continue to press on to find her? Who would you trust? Who could you befriend? Would you be able to extend mercy and grace to siblings you have only just met, and who doesn’t want to know you?
Colleen Coble has brought Libby, Nicole, Vanessa, Brent, Aunt Pearl, and more to life! The relationships among the characters is well written, believable and... stresses both positive and negative feelings. The emotional ups-and-downs kept me, the reader, involved in the many twists and turns of the plot.
Colleen’s ingenuity in using a simple WWJD necklace to strengthen Libby’s faith, and introduce Jesus Christ’s patience and love to the characters and therefore the reader, as personal Lord and Savior. A wonderful story that I think you will enjoy reading.
I look forward to reading the second book in The Hope Beach series, Rosemary Cottage, available July 2013!
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.
