Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble

Seagrass Pier (Hope Beach, #3)About the book: 

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 Take:  I liked this book but I did have some issues with it.  I am not sure how I feel about the whole main point of the book which is having the memories of someone else who you have gotten a donated organ from.  It did make for some very interesting reading and helped with the whole mystery of who killed the lady who Elin got her donated heart from.  I also became alittle uncomfortable with some of the romance elements.  I thought that for a Christian book that they were alittle on the border.  They didn't cross the line for me but they came close.  I read alot of non Christian books and I am exposed to alot worse than was in this book but like I said I thought it came awfully close to the line. 
All in all this was a good mystery.  I did not guess who did it until it was revealed at the end.  I felt that maybe alot was thrown at the reader at the very end of the book as that is where most of the action took place.  Even though this is the third in a series it stands alone.  

I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
