The Inn at Ocean's Edge (Sunset Cove #1) Reviews
Honestly, I think this is Colleen Coble's best plot yet. There are more twists and turns to it than there are chapters, yet it unfolds at an even pace and is not too challenging to keep straight. Claire is an interesting character and easy to empathize with, while Luke is a good steady hero. (His being a Coastie just makes things even better!)
Also, I have to add that I found the part about the injured orca, and the facts about them and their pods, both endearing and educational! A great ...more
I never like saying I couldn’t get into a novel, especially one like this with so much clout behind it. I want to get hooked on every book I read. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen here.
It wasn’t the story itself, which is–in and of itself–intriguing. Rather, it was something, somehow, in the way it was told. Starting, perhaps, with the way that I didn’t feel the author trusted me, the reader, to connect obvious dots. Like in this brief snatch of narrative: “What had gotten into her today? First ...more
This I felt was a mystery within a mystery. Even though I had figured out one of them, I was compelled to keep reading to figure out the other! There were alot of twists and turns and I found it fast moving and didnt want to put it down towards the end. It was filled with mystery, suspense and of course romance, with lots of family drama thrown in. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the next one in the series! Bring it on!
Horrible. Only finished it because it's short, and I wanted to see if the ridiculous "twist" I guessed in the first 20 pages was actually the way it would go. It was. The dialogue was some of the worst I've ever read.
I can't believe all the rave reviews. I only finished it to just finish it! It was so predictable. Not very mysterious for me!
Would not recommend and this is the first written review I've done on here. Sorry... Not worth the time.
This is not easy for me. I'm such a fan of books and of the authors who write them. I will always point out the positive when writing a review. The positive points of Colleen Coble's The Inn at Oceans Edge is that the concept of this mystery was a good one. Unfortunately, the execution of it was horrible.
Claire heads to Maine to assist her father in merger that they hope will save their hotel. Once she steps foot inside she has a panic attack but isn't sure why she is so distressed. To relax, sh ...more
I can't believe I waited so long to read another Colleen Coble suspense.
The story pulled me in from the first chapter. It was intriguing and filled with a lot of mystery, twists and turns. I did figure out the mysteries and also the villain, but not the villain's motive. Even though I did figure out what is going on, it didn't take away the suspense for me, since the truths were revealed shortly after I figured something out.
I enjoyed both Luke and Claire's characters, though by the middle to e ...more
