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?
This was a good book. Libby is shocked when she learns she inherited the Tidewater Inn from her father. Not only that he left it to her but the fact that he was alive years after her mother had told her he'd died. Now she gets to meet some family she never knew she had but with all the trouble that seems to be following her, is she going to be able to keep them?
I loved the depth of the characters in this book. The author does a great job of weaving Christian principles through the book without it feeling forced. Complications, secrets and mysteries are around every corner and it was difficult to put this book down.
This book is a 4/5. It was a good mix.
