Review: The House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble

Book Description

"The dangerous beauty of Lavender Tides is harboring secrets that reach around the world.
Ellie Blackmore is making a name for herself as a house flipper. But when her sister Mackenzie disappears, Ellie can’t focus on anything but uncovering what happened. Her only clue is the bloodstain on the deck of Mackenzie’s boat. Ellie knows her sister isn’t on the best of terms with her ex-husband, Jason, but he wouldn’t kill her—would he?

Coast Guard intelligence officer Grayson Bradshaw believes Mackenzie faked her own death after stealing a seized cocaine shipment. The problem is convincing Ellie, who seems to view him as the true enemy.

Both Ellie and Grayson want truth, but truth—and family—is often more complex than it first appears. From international terrorism to the peaceful lavender fields of Puget Sound, The House at Saltwater Point is a thrilling race to uncover the truth before it’s too late."

The House at Saltwater Point is the 2nd book in the Lavender Tides series.  Although it could be read as a stand alone novel as in most series books you get a more complete picture of the story if you read them all.  The View From Rainshadow Bay is the first book in the series.

As with all of Ms. Coble's novels there is a lot of suspense in the story.  There are many mysteries to be solved.  The story is not overly gory or graphic but several people do die. There is also a budding romance going on in the story but not overly romantic or anything inappropriate.

Another element of this series is that many years ago three siblings were separated during an earthquake.  Shauna was the only one old enough to remember and for a time believed these siblings to be dead but that was not true.  In The House at Saltwater Point she finds her long lost brother and the location of her sister.  In the final book we will get to hear more of the story of the reunification of all three siblings.  I loved that Tidewater Inn was brought into The House at Saltwater Point briefly and it looks as though Rock Harbor will be involved with the next story.

I loved The House at Saltwater Point and look forward to the next book in the series!
