About The Inn at Ocean’s Edge

Claire’s visit to a luxury hotel in Maine awakens repressed memories, threatening all she holds dear.
In 1989, Claire Dellamare disappeared from her own fourth birthday party at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine. She showed up a year later at the same hotel, with a note pinned to her dress but no explanation. Nobody knows where Claire spent that year—and until now, Claire didn’t even know she had ever been missing.
But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents’ best efforts to keep them forgotten.
Luke Rocco lost his mother under equally mysterious circumstances—at the same time Claire disappeared. After a chance encounter reveals the unlikely link between them, Claire and Luke set out together to uncover the truth about what happened that fateful year.
With flashbacks swimming just beneath her consciousness and a murderer threatening her safety, Claire’s very life depends on unscrambling her past . . . even if her family refuses to acknowledge it. Someone-maybe everyone-is hiding something from Claire Dellamare, and it will cost her everything to drag the truth out into the light.

My Review

I really enjoyed this book and found myself ready to read more even when it was time to put the book down.  It is quite suspenseful from the very first flashback!  Claire is very likable – she is very confident, which is why being struck by a panic attack upon her arrival at the Inn.  When Claire meets Luke, the mystery starts to build, and it becomes very difficult to tease out who the real bad guy is.  The book takes a lot of twists and turns, and it’s a fun to try and figure out how the murder investigations fit together and exactly what happened to Claire, and who is trying to kill her.
This book won’t disappoint for mystery fans!  I also really enjoyed the setting – it made me want to go to the beach!
