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.

Once I picked up this book, I found I didn’t want to put it down; it drew me to turn the pages. When you read the blurb on the back of the book, you get the gist of what this book is about, but not the terror you are going to experience. You will never see what is about to happen, it was one thing after another, and kept changing until the end.
How many murderers are there? Are they all related? You will be asking yourself this and other questions, whom can you trust? Just when you think you are at the end and the answers are there, your surprised to find out, nope not all of them.
Elin started her marriage to Tim by telling him she had betrayed him and is expecting a child. Oh my, not good, but he seems to want the marriage anyway, and wants the child to carry his name. What a start to a marriage, and he knows who the real father is and sure, not surprisingly, doesn’t like him.
The story starts after Elin’s husband has passed and she has received her transplant, but now the dreams start, and her anguish begins. I have to say that the author does a wonderful job of keeping us in the dark, until the last moment. Don’t miss this one it will linger with you for a long time!
