From the summary:
Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks could be a dream come true for Libby. The inn cries out for her restorer’s talent and love of history. She’s delighted to learn of the family she never knew she had. And the handsome Coast Guard lieutenant she’s met there on the island could definitely be the man of her dreams.
But Libby soon realizes that the only way she can afford the upkeep on the inn is to sell it to developers who are stalking the island. The father who willed her the inn has died before she could meet him, and her newfound brother and sister are convinced she’s there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, and Libby’s under suspicion for the crime.
I have to say, I really did enjoy this story. It started as a very entertaining and quick read where you’re pulled into the story very quickly. The story is full of interesting plot twists and turns. Hope Island itself is painted as a beautiful place, one that you’d love to go and visit. I enjoy Christian Fiction, and my only minor complaint with the story is that while most of the Christian references flow beautifully within the story, occasionally the references seem to be a little bit forced.
Overall I would recommend this book, I hope that there will be more in the series as I would love to learn more about Libby!
