The Inn At Ocean’s Edge

InnAtOcean'sEdge 195x300I’ve been SO excited to see share The Inn at Ocean’s Edge with readers! In celebration of this new release, my publisher is giving away a Kindle Fire. Hope over to this page and follow the instructions to enter. I’m going to be doing an online chat too. Details are here:

Here is a little bit about the book:

The minute she steps inside the grand Inn at Ocean’s Edge, Claire Dellamare knows something terrible happened there. She feels it in her bones. Her ensuing panic attack causes a scene, upsetting her parents. Claire attempts to quiet her nerves with a walk on the beach, to no avail. She’s at too great a distance to make out details, but she believes she witnesses a murder on a nearby cliff. When local police find no evidence of foul play, they quickly write off the “nervous” woman’s testimony as less than credible.

But Luke Rocco, home on leave from the Coast Guard, has reason to believe Claire. Years ago when his mother went missing, Luke’s father suspected she’d been murdered. He died never having convinced the police to investigate. So when an employee of the grand hotel doesn’t show up for work, Luke steps in to help Claire track down the missing woman.

As Claire and Luke put together the pieces of a decades-old mystery, they discover that some family secrets refuse to stay buried. And some passions are worth killing for.

Here is the book page for The Inn at Ocean’s Edge with links to online retailers.

    I am currently reading The Inn at Ocean’s Edge and I want to skip to the last chapter so bad but I am afraid. I am guessing all kinds of scenarios and scaring myself. This is my first book from you. I am loving it.

    1. colleen

      Yay! So glad you are enjoying it!

  17. Rina Rivera

    I finished reading this book and of course I now want to read The Mermaid Moon, but realized that is not released yet. I liked all the twist and turns in the story and it kept my attention all the way. God bless and continue to give Him the glory.

    1. colleen

      I’m so glad you loved it, Rina!

  18. Sheila

    I am listening to The Inn at Ocean’s Edge on my MP3 player. I love It!
    Please consider having the rest of the books on download audio. I am unable to sit and read but I can listen to your wonderful books and hope to. Your writing is delightful. Thank you for writing without foul language and with prayer injected with fantastic story lines.
    Looking forward to many more books

    1. colleen

      I’m so glad you loved it, Sheila! The audio versions are never in my power. Those rights are sold to companies who put them out but they’ve been taking quite a few of my books.

    Hi Colleen,
    I have now read six of your books and loved every one of them. You capture my interest on the first page and hold it until the end. However, there is one small suggestion I would like to make and it concerns an extended ending to your books. I feel the endings are too abrupt. Perhaps you could include a Prologue.

    1. colleen

      That makes me so happy, Lilly! Thanks for taking time to let me know!

  20. Faith Posten

    The Inn at Oceans Edge really was a fantastic book. I believe it may be the best one you have ever written! It was one that kept me guessing a very long time, too! I like that particularly. I have already preordered the sequel to it and can hardly wait until it comes out.

    My favorite genre is Christian suspense/romance or mysteries with romance mixed in the story also. I just never get enough of them. 🙂

    Right now I am reading one of your older books, loaned to me by a friend, Anathema is also a very fascinating story even though it was one where I did guess who the prep was early on. (I wasn’t really positive I was right, but had a feeling it had to be him!) Generally I am not a big Amish fan like so many are. I have to admit that I have never totally understood the great love of Amish books since their beliefs are so contrary to the doctrine which I believe is so clear in the Word of God. But your books are wonderful. Thank you for writing and please keep it up!

    1. colleen

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Faith! I hope you like Mermaid Moon just as much!

  21. Linda

    I have read a lot of your books, love them all. Reading “The Inn at Ocean’s Edge” I can’t put it down!

  22. “The Inn at Ocean’s Edge” was certainly one of my favorite of your books if not the very favorite! I didn’t want it to end when it did!!! I wanted it to go on and on. hehehe

    Please just keep writing, God has given you a great talent! May God Bless you richly and continue to use you!

  23. Carol

    You are such an awesome writer. I first became hooked with the rock harbor series. I live in Michigan so I love reading stories that are based there.

    1. colleen

      Yay! I’m so glad! The next book I’m writing is another Rock Harbor novel.

  24. Debi Carey

    I just finished your new book “The Inn at Ocean’s Edge”. Loved it! First book I’ve read by you and getting ready to get more by you from our library. I love all books that are by oceans or any water. Can’t wait for the sequel to come out!

    1. colleen

      I’m so glad, Debi! Mermaid Moon is out now. 🙂
