This was a quick read because its a “Novella” short story (89 pages). Although it was short, the story plot didn’t feel rushed to me.
Delilah is the manager of the Tidewater Inn (which is mentioned in previous Colleen Coble books) and is preparing for an upcoming wedding of a friend. She starts to receive weird phone calls and then is convinced someone is trying to hurt her. I kept trying to figure out who it was while reading, but of course it’s not predictable!
I finished this fast paced drama in one night because I was caught up in the characters and wondering what was going to happen next.
I also love how descriptive the author is with places and the surroundings when she’s writing a story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from BookLookBloggers in exchange for an honest review on my blog and social media-all opinions are my own.
A romantic, Christmas wedding at her seaside hotel gives Delilah a chance to shine with her unique gifts. But will her light be snuffed out before the bride and groom say “I do”?
As manager of the Tidewater Inn, Delilah Carter has been planning a spectacular Christmas wedding for her friends at the grand hotel overlooking the ocean. While picking up still more twinkly lights and some last-minute groceries for the reception dinner, a huge truck runs her off the freezing, wet roads into the dark night. Her car stops just short of an enormous tree and the truck speeds off into the night. Delilah escapes with her life and has almost convinced herself the whole thing was an accident, but then she begins to receive threatening phone calls. With the wedding just hours away, she’s distracted and anxious. Then Sheriff Tom Bourne stops by the inn and volunteers to help.
Tom has always had a soft spot for Delilah, and he’s determined to protect her. But he is pulled away by a bizarre Christmas stunt that has the neighborhood reeling, and Delilah is attacked again.
Will Delilah have to cancel the Christmas wedding at Tidewater Inn? And will Tom’s protection be enough to save Delilah from the shadowy figure looming in the background?
