Seagrass Pier is the perfect place for Elin to hide from a killer, but an old love's ability to see her true heart could be her undoing.
When Elin Summerall contracted a virus that damaged her heart, she was lucky to get a transplant. At first it was an overwhelmingly good gift. But then she began to remember a murder she never witnessed—the murder of her heart's donor.
When she reveals what she knows to a disbelieving police officer, she's exposed as a witness and must flee for her life to a remote cottage on Hope Beach.
Fearing what might happen to her daughter and mother, she asks Marc Everton for help, though she hasn't seen him since the night her father died. She remembers that night with shame, and she never told Marc about their daughter.
Marc is less than convinced that Elin's "memories" are real. He is blindsided by the news about his daughter, but for her sake, he agrees to help. Then he begins to notice the small ways Elin is different. She now likes coffee, her musical tastes have changed, and she's ditched her jeans and sneakers for dresses and high heels.
As Elin tries to stay alive and bring the killer to justice, she begins to doubt her own identity. Did her new heart save her life only to cause her to lose herself? And if she's really changed, why does her new heart love Marc just as much as her old one did?

- Review by ChooseWisely
I was truly surprised by my desire to hide under the covers after some of the chapters in this book! I don’t normally read murder mysteries, but the story line and geographical location alone made me want to read it. In this book, recently widowed Erin Summerall is recovering from a heart transplant. While she is grateful for her life, she is uneasy about the nightmares that came with it. The donor was murdered and Erin is seeing life through her eyes. An old friend, and true father of her daughter is a FBI agent who has a vested interest in the case. Together they work to find the murder before it’s too late.
What I love about the story is the high level of suspense and unexpected turns. I was certain I knew who the murderer was, but I was wrong. I am never wrong. There were a few elements to this book I struggled with as I got further along in the story. For instance, so many characters are introduced, so much information is given, and a few too many plot lines exist for my taste. While the side stories are interesting, I found them to be too much.
The good news is, if you love murder mysteries with a side of love, you will likely enjoy this book. I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from BookLookBloggers and the book’s publisher. All opinions are my own. (Posted on 6/26/14)
