Seagrass Pier - Book Review

Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble is an intense mystery that will have you spell bound from the first page to the last page.  I don't normally read mysteries, but my mom has read several of Colleen Coble's books so I thought I would give this one a try.  I really enjoyed it and am now a fan.  There were so many twists and turns and "edge of your seat" moments that I was captivated all the way through.  I have now borrowed several of her books from my mom!

Within the Pages of Seagrass Pier you will read about Elin Summerall, a woman who after contracting a virus needed a heart transplant.  What seemed like a blessing soon turned into a nightmare when the memories of the woman who's heart Elin received started haunting her mind.  The donor was murdered and now since Elin remembers the crime the murderer appears to be coming after her.

Marc is an FBI agent who had a past fling with Elin, now five years later their paths cross again.  Marc's partner was murdered and he believes the same man who murdered Laura (Elin's donor) is the one who murdered his partner.  He becomes very protective of Elin and her daughter Josie and Elin's mom who has Alzheimer's and he moves in with them in order to protect them.   Elin and Marc both fall in love with each other, but neither one knows what the other is thinking and both refuse to act on their feelings.  With Elin's
"memories" and Marc's detective skills the set out to solve the crime and bring the person to justice who continues to stalk Elin.

This is a very complex book with many characters interacting with each other and many story lines that all come together in one.  Even though it is the third book in the series you do not need to read them in order to understand what is going on.  It is a great stand alone book and if you like action and mysteries and of course a little love thrown in, then I am sure you will enjoy this one!
