Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble

Goodreads | Amazon
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 Lang 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 have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have read by Colleen Coble, and Rosemary Cottage is no exception. With the fantastic blend of mystery and romance I have come to expect from Coble, this novel kept me hooked from the first page to the last. What an adventure. An added treat to the story is the appearance of Libby and other characters from Tidewater Inn, the first Hope Beach novel – it always makes me smile to know what characters are up to after the end of their novel. (Note: reading Tidewater Inn is not a prerequisite to Rosemary Cottage. Each novel can be read on its own). I highly recommend reading Rosemary Cottage and most definitely look forward to reading more from Colleen Coble. I thank Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for providing me with a digital copy of the novel in exchange for my honest review.
