Hope Beach is a place of intoxicating beauty, where trouble hits with the force of a hurricane.
Inheriting a beautiful old hotel on the Outer Banks is like a dream come true for Libby. The inn is in need of restoration, and appeals to her love of history. She's pleased to learn of the family she never knew she had. The handsome Coast Guard lieutenant she's met there on the island might just be the man of her dreams.
Libby soon realizes 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 died before she could meet him, and her newfound brother and sister are convinced she's there to steal their birthright. Worst of all, her best friend and business partner got kidnapped before her eyes, and Libby's under suspicion for the crime.
Libby's dream come true is turning into a nightmare. Her only option is to find her friend and prove her innocence, or lose everything on the shores of Hope Island.
