Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks should be a dream come true for Libby. The inn cries out for her restorer's talent and love of history. And she's delighted to learn of the family she never knew she had.
But her dream quickly becomes a nightmare when her best friend and business partner is kidnapped before her eyes and Libby becomes the prime suspect. As she works to prove her innocence with the handsome Coast Guard lieutenant she met when she first arrived, the familial bliss she always hoped for starts to slip away. The father who willed her the inn has died before she could meet him, and her newfound brother and sister are convinced she's there to steal their birthright.
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 Beach.
