About the book:
Welcome to Hope Beach. A place of intoxicating beauty . . . where trouble hits with the force of a hurricane.
Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks could be a dream come true for Libby. The inn cries out for her restorer’s talent and love of history. She’s delighted to learn of the family she never knew she had. And the handsome Coast Guard lieutenant she’s met there on the island could definitely be the man of her dreams.
But Libby soon realizes that the only way she can afford the upkeep on the inn is to sell it to developers who are stalking the island. The father who willed her the inn has died before she could meet him, and her new found brother and sister are convinced she’s there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner has been kidnapped before her eyes, and Libby’s under suspicion for the crime.
Libby’s dream come true is becoming a nightmare. Her only option is to find her friend and prove her innocence, or lose everything on the shores of Hope Island.

I love a good mystery but I've read so many of them over my lifetime that I can usually figure out all the twists and turns and I know who did it and why before all the details are spilled and this was no exception but it was still fun to watch the main characters learn to live out their faith and find their course in life. This was a good book and had some interesting characters and I loved learning a little bit about the restoration of historic properties. Tidewater Inn sounds like a place you could just chill out, relax and have a fantastic time away from all the worries and cares of the world. Sounds like an adventure I'd like to live, without the kidnapping! I give Tidewater Inn 3 out of 5 stars since I pretty much knew every move that the characters were going to make, it was very predictable but all in all an interesting book.
Thanks for reading,
