Review of Tidewater Inn by Colleen Coble & Book Giveaway!

Welcome to Hope BeachA 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.

My Review

I am going to be really honest with you when I got this book I was not really sure about it. I have read other Colleen Coble books and only one was worthy of my time and that was Anathema, so I was not really sure I would ever get to the end of this one.

When I started Tidewater Inn I was going to make my self read for one hour and before I knew it, I had read over half the book, I could NOT put it down.

In this book there is a kidnapping, and you just won't be at peace until you find out who was behind it. It is a super read!!  I am so happy I decided to go ahead and read this book. This book has mystery, romance, and is very intriguing. A little bit of everything that you would want in a GREAT read.

I will be giving away a copy of this book to one lucky follower who posts this link on all their social network sites!
