Publisher's Summary

A vacation to Sunset Cove was her way of celebrating and thanking her parents. After all, Claire Dellamore's childhood was like a fairy tale. But with the help of Luke Elwell, Claire discovers that fairy tale was really an elaborate lie....

The minute she steps inside the grand Inn at Ocean's Edge, Claire Dellamare knows something terrible happened there. She feels it in her bones. Her ensuing panic attack causes a scene, upsetting her parents. Claire attempts to quiet her nerves with a walk on the beach, to no avail. She's at too great a distance to make out details, but she believes she witnesses a murder on a nearby cliff. When local police find no evidence of foul play, they quickly write off the "nervous" woman's testimony as less than credible.

But Luke Elwell, home on leave from the Coast Guard, has reason to believe Claire. Years ago, when his mother went missing, Luke's father suspected she'd been murdered. He died never having convinced the police to investigate. So when an employee of the grand hotel doesn't show up for work, Luke steps in to help Claire track down the missing woman.

As Claire and Luke put together the pieces of a decades-old mystery, they discover that some family secrets refuse to stay buried. And some passions are worth killing for.

    "What a stunning story"

    Hi Colleen, you wrote a beautiful story with so many twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat! The scriptural truths in the story were beautifully woven in and really ministered to me. Love is indeed the cement that holds us together, and God is indeed Love, not just loves us, but He IS Love! Thank you for the lovely story, may God bless you with many more! Love Anthea

    "OUTSTANDING"

    One of the best I've read. The plot kept me hanging on to the very end. Refreshing to have a story that was both clean and yet enticing; good morals and yet very true to life. Will definitely read more by this author.

    "These are not characters I care about"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book is full of one-dimensional characters that do not interest me. Halfway through the book I found I just didn't care how the book ended.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration can not make unrealistic characters interesting.

    "Disappointed"

    Expected a mystery and got a shallow Romance novel. Too many twists and turns and none with any foundation or depth.
