About the book: 

In a secluded corner of Hope Beach, one woman must decipher a stranger's memories . . . before they cost her everything.
Elin Summerall was one of the lucky ones. Not only did she get a heart transplant, but the donor was a perfect fit. A miraculously perfect fit.
But when Elin begins having violent flashbacks---and vivid dreams of being strangled---she realizes that she has been the recipient of more than just a new heart . . . Elin is remembering her donor's murder.
Her strange affliction has attracted some unwanted attention: from the press, from the authorities . . . and from the killer himself. Now, living alone with her young daughter and aging mother, Elin is being stalked---by a man she's only met in her nightmares.
The police are dubious of her story, but one off-duty FBI agent is eager to help her: Agent Marc Everton, the father of Elin's daughter.
Of course, he doesn't know about that. Yet.
Now, in a remote cottage on Hope Island, Elin and Marc must probe the secrets buried in her borrowed heart. And there's no time to waste. One man is desperate to silence her---before she remembers too much.

My Take:
I love this book! Colleen takes us back to Hope's Beach, and she also introduces us to cell memory. Memory that a person who has received a transplant may remember from the person who they received the transplant from. This book is full of suspense, romance, a sweet little girl named Josie. 
Elin has received a heart transplant from a murdered woman named Laura. She has dreams of Laura's murder which makes her very dangerous to the murderer. I haven't read a book with this much suspense in a long time and I loved every minute of it.
While Colleen writes a book with suspense, there is a spiritual theme that will touch your heart.
 
I highly recommend it!!!

 
 
 

A Place in His Heart by Rebecca Demarino

She could cross an ocean, but could she ever win his heart?

Anglican Mary Langton longs to marry for love. Left at the altar and disgraced in her small hamlet, she is being pressured to marry the eligible son of the London milliner. Puritan Barnabas Horton still grieves the loss of his beloved wife, but he knows his two young sons need a mother.

With tender hearts, Mary and Barnabas take a leap of faith and wed. But when Barnabas's secret plans to move his family to the New World to escape persecution come to light, Mary's world is upended. How could she possibly leave her papa and her dear sister?

And will she ever reach the secret places of her husband's broken heart?

My Take:

I love debut authors, and Rebecca does not disappoint. Mary is determined to marry for love, as well as her father is determined she marry well. The two have a battle of the wills and I won't tell you who wins.
This is a book that touches the heart and pulls you into London, and then onto the new world. You can't go wrong with this book!

Somebody Like You by Beth Vogt

Can a young widow find love again with her husband’s reflection?

Haley’s three-year marriage to Sam, an army medic, ends tragically when he’s killed in Afghanistan. Her attempts to create a new life for herself are ambushed when she arrives home one evening—and finds her husband waiting for her. Did the military make an unimaginable mistake when they told her Sam was killed?

Too late to make things right with his estranged twin brother, Stephen discovers Sam never told Haley about him. As Haley and Stephen navigate their fragile relation­ship, they are inexorably drawn to each other. How can they honor the memory of a man whose death brought them together—and whose ghost could drive them apart?

Somebody Like You is a beautifully rendered, affecting novel, reminding us that while we can’t change the past, we have the choice to change the future and start anew.



God’s best is often found behind the doors marked “Never.”
So many times I approached life with with a virtual roll of yellow duct tape emblazoned with the word NEVER. Over and over again I sealed off certain opportunities.
I would never marry a doctor or anyone in the military.
I would never have children.
I would never write fiction.
And don’t you know God stripped off the duct tape and walked me through each of those NEVER doors?
Have you ever marked a door NEVER … only to discover his best waited where you said you’d never go?
Following God through that door doesn’t mean we’re on “easy street,”‘even though we’re where he wants us to be.
” Show me your ways, Lord,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.”
- Psalm 25:4-5 (NIV)
There’s more to happily ever after than the fairy tales tell us. We’re living real life — and relationships are messy, even when you believe in God. Even when you anchor your life to his promises.
I live my life acknowledging these realities … And I weave these truths into the stories I write.

My Take:

What would you do if your husband died and you are visited by his estranged twin . . . well that is exactly what happens to Haley Ames. She comes home one night to a man on her front porch who is the exact likeness of her dead husband, Sam, he even sounds just like him.
Stephen is determined to learn about his twin brother, Sam, and Haley is determined to keep Stephen away.
Haley allowed Sam to tell her who she was, not be herself. I could definitely relate, as my former husband defined me, and I lost me. When I got rid of him, I found me, and I like her.

Beth writes a book that mirrors what happens in today's world. Life is messy and so are relationships.
I was pulled into this story from the beginning and it hasn't let go. I love books that keep you thinking even after you have closed the last page.
This is a great book, one I highly recommend. Grab a copy, a glass of tea, and sit down and enjoy.
