Colleen Coble's latest novel, "Rosemary Cottage," is book two in her Hope Beach series and is a story that will take the reader away to Hope Beach and become lost in the romance and mystery.
Amy came to Rosemary Cottage to grieve, to heal, maybe even find love. But there’s a deadly undertow of secrets around Hope Island . . .
The charming Rosemary Cottage on the beach offers Amy Lange respite she needs to mourn her brother, Ben. She’s even thinking of moving her midwife practice to the Outer Banks community. It’s always been a refuge for her and her family. She also wants to investigate Ben’s disappearance at sea. Everyone blames a surfing accident, but Amy has reason to wonder.
Coast Guard officer Curtis Ireland has lost a sibling too. His sister, Gina, was run down by a boat, leaving him to raise her infant daughter. If anyone knew who little Raine’s father was, Curtis could lose his beloved niece. Yet he can’t help being drawn to Hope Beach’s new midwife, Amy. He even agrees to help her investigate what happened to both Ben and Gina.
Can two grieving people with secrets find healing on beautiful Hope Island? Or will their quest for truth set them at odds with each other…and with those who will go to any length to keep hidden things hidden?
I really enjoyed Colleen Coble's first Hope Beach novel, "Tidewater Inn," and I was excited to be able to read and review book two, "Rosemary Cottage." Amy has returned to Rosemary Cottage, her family home on the Outer Banks; however this is not for rest and relaxation. Amy is mourning the death of her brother and yet she feels that there is more to his death than what she has been told. Amy and Curtis along with the characters from book one return in this story and create a beautiful story of loss, love and moving on along with suspense. Colleen Coble's writing is a treat, a treat that is savored and enjoyed and once it's gone, you long for more. I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in this series!
