The House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble Book Review

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.

My Thoughts:

Collen Coble has a knack of pulling you into the story. She has characters that have a lot of depth and not to mention the story plots that she weaves into her books.

This is the second book in the Lavender Tides series. This is a standalone book. The book has a bit of mystery, suspense, and romance. A few twist and turns throughout the story that may surprise you.

The House at Saltwater Point started out slow. I had a hard time at first getting into the story. It eventually came together after building up the plot and getting familiar with the characters. I always enjoy books when characters from another book are mingled into the story. The location was captivating. I could see the town and all the scenery in my mind. It made me long for a trip to the beach.

I enjoyed Ellie and Grayson characters and they are very likable. I enjoyed the house flipper part of the story with Ellie finding her dream home. It was a theme I hadn’t came across in a book before.

There is a back story that spans some 24 years ago of Shauna Bannister searching for her siblings. 

Overall, this is a good story but, not my favorite. Several aspects of the story seemed a bit unrealistic to me with the terrorist and how it played out.
