Teddy GAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5I wish I'd read the first book!July 17, 2018Teddy GAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Ellie Blackmore is knee-deep in her renovation business, which she runs with her ex brother-in-law, and making plans to renovate a house for herself, when her sister Mackenzie goes missing. There's a large bloodstain on the deck of her beloved sailboat, and now rumors of her involvement with a missing cocaine shipment are circulating. The main source of those rumors have swept into town with Coast Guard Intelligence Officer Grayson Bradshaw. As Ellie and Grayson both seek answers to Mackenzie's disappearance, Grayson has family questions of his own to sort out.
This was a tough book for me to review; once again, I didn't realize this was part of a series, and thus I was not familiar with the characters and hints of backstories sprinkled throughout this book. That always puts me at a disadvantage, but it does lead me to say that this is probably not best read as a stand alone novel. Also, there was a lot going on in this book, and I feel like several of the plot lines could have been better served by having their own book. It was a lot to try to get invested in as a reader, and it was hard to believe that any of the characters could have been dealing with that many major things at once.
I could see how readers who enjoy suspenseful romance books, however, could enjoy this. Grayson and Ellie were thrown together because of the case of her sister, but there were reasons for them to not just be at odds on opposite sides of the case. These side storylines fed their relationship and kept it interesting.
While this book wasn't quite for me, I give it 3 stars. Ellie's persistent faith in her sister, and a group of connected friends made me want to see how it all turned out.
I received a digital copy of this book, via NetGalley, from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good StoryJuly 16, 2018Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The House at Saltwater Point is a solid and enjoyable addition to the Lavender Tides series. I was happy to catch up with the main characters from book one, and to be introduced to Grayson and Ellie. I really liked these characters and found that their attraction and romance was very believable.
This story started off with the immediate disappearance of a character and I fell right into the investigation with Grayson and Ellie. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story and look forward to continuing on with this series in the next novel.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
Heidi MainCary, NCAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Suspense, interesting plot, nice romance, good read!July 13, 2018Heidi MainCary, NCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble had an interesting plot, it kept me up too late a couple of nights!
Colleen did a great job weaving in multiple plot lines, which made the read even more enjoyable. The book held a nice suspense, not too much, not too little. The plot held a home renovation, but those elements didn't detract from the plot, instead the reno helped things move along nicely.
Highly recommend. Grab your copy of The House at Saltwater Point today!
Randi5 Stars Out Of 5Great Summer ReadJuly 11, 2018RandiQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I love a good mystery. I love that thrill of wondering what's going to happen next. With each turn of the page I like trying to figure it all out. But I'll be honest, sometimes these mysteries can get a little... well, predictable. About halfway through it's often easy to guess just how it's going to end. But this book was not like that at all for me... it seemed like with every page there was more we were discovering, and it left me wondering what going to be revealed next. Not only did it have a lot of twists and turns, but there were a lot of little side stories that kept things interesting, and truly helped us to get a full look at each character. Those books that actually make characters seem like real people with rich and complicated backstories are some of my favorites. Not only was it packed full of suspense, but there was also some family drama and oh yes, romance too! But as a Christian novel, it wasn't over the top...something that I personally do not enjoy in a romance.
Now, I don't want to give anything away, but this truly is the best book I've read so far this summer! I truly could not get enough. This was the first book I had read by Colleen Coble or in the Lavender Tides series, but I am most certainly looking forward to more!
