In 1989, Claire Dellamare disappeared from her own fourth birthday party at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine. She showed up a year later at the same hotel, with a note pinned to her dress but no explanation. Nobody knows where Claire spent that year—and until now, Claire didn’t even know she had ever been missing.
But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents’ best efforts to keep them forgotten.
Luke Rocco lost his mother under equally mysterious circumstances—at the same time Claire disappeared. After a chance encounter reveals the unlikely link between them, Claire and Luke set out together to uncover the truth about what happened that fateful year.
With flashbacks swimming just beneath her consciousness and a murderer threatening her safety, Claire’s very life depends on unscrambling her past . . . even if her family refuses to acknowledge it. Someone—maybe everyone—is hiding something from Claire Dellamare, and it will cost her everything to drag the truth out into the light.
The Inn at Ocean’s Edge is full of mystery and suspense. Claire goes missing as a child and when she’s returned, she doesn’t remember anything. Now an adult, she’s having flashbacks no one in her family wants to talk about.
Luke does want to talk, his mother went missing around the same time but Claire doesn’t have answers. I loved the desperation between the two of them.
I thought this was a great read that clearly shows the fallout from sinful choices. I wish Kate had been developed with a little more dimension but overall that didn’t take away from the mystery that kept me turning the pages.
I enjoyed The Inn at Ocean’s Edge and I think you will, too.
