SEAGRASS PIER by Colleen Coble
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.

The story is about Elin, a woman who receives a donor heart from a murder victim and starts to feel things as well as have dreams about the murder. Now we know this isn't possible but Colleen has such a way of writing that I was pulled into the mysterious dreams and suspense. Ooh, did I mention turns and twists that kept me reading way after bedtime? The crazy thing is that the murderer eventually starts targeting Elin after she contacts the police and starts working with one officer who is just as hesitant to believe her as his comrades, he is in for the shock of his life!
What a good book! I've enjoyed the Hope Beach series and am looking forward to more from this author!
