Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble, and a chance to win a Kindle

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 review:
   This has been the best suspense series Colleen Coble has written, and this is the best of  the series. As with the rest of the series, the book was set mostly in the Outer Banks, a favorite location of mine, which made it all the more interesting to me.

  In addition to great suspense and action, this book also explores the idea of people getting organ transplants and taking on some of the likes and dislikes and memories of the person the transplanted organ came from. Although it sounds farfetched, some of it is possible and does happen, at least with dislikes and likes. It made for an interesting plot with that element in the story.

  I had picked up this book with the plan of reading just some of it, but I got into the book so much that I had to read it to the end. I loved every minute of it: the plot, characters, action and suspense. As with the last book, the author brought back some of the characters from the other books, which is always an added bonus for me. I definitely recommend this book, and the whole series. Colleen has done an above par job on all three books.
