Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Need to disclose that this is Christian Fiction!!!"
    What disappointed you about Tidewater Inn?

    This was totally Christian Fiction with many many bible quotes and simplistic Christian episodes. The narrator was horrible. When she spoke for Libby, the main character, her high voice was patronizing and sounded like Mr. Bill from the old SNL series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Devon O'Day’s performances?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    The storyline was good, but I could not finish the book.

    Story
    "Interesting Listen set at OBX"

    Intricate and interesting plot. Too bad Colleen Coble has a couple of characters in this story who are TSTL. They do, of course, because this is a CBA book. Because of those characters believability is suspended at times. But, she's created such engaging H/H and a unique storyline that it was worth ignoring the inane teenage characters. I think CC fans will love this book by their favorite story teller. You'll keep listening to find out how the book turns out. I wouldn't normally comment on characters who are so ridiculous, but I had to for this listen. However, I float some grace in that they are teenagers and spoiled young adults. And unfortunately Coble's characterization may be spot-on for some of these real-life inspirations! Consistent delivery from CC of a very good listen.

    "Loved the story. Terrible narration."
    Would you try another book from Colleen Coble and/or Devon O'Day?

    yes.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator dropped his voice towarad the end of a sentence and ran it all together making it hard to understand.


    Could you see Tidewater Inn being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Read the story. Don't buy the audilble.

    "Wonderful!!"
    Where does Tidewater Inn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great book. I can always count on Colleen Coble for a great story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tidewater Inn?

    I loved it when the sisters finally came together and started to have a relationship.


    What does Devon O'Day bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    One of the best narrators I've ever listened to. Her voice was soothing, she reminded me of listening to my Grandmother reading to me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I would fall asleep from pure exhaustion trying to stay awake to listen to the whole thing.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, not the audio book, I didn't like the performance, failed to receive the "gotcha" that creates empathy for the two main ladies. Felt it was too whiney and wimpy even.
