Thomas Nelson|July 15, 2013|Trade Paperback|ISBN: 978-1-59554-782-8
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 office 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?
As I was reading along I kept trying to figure this story out but it had me stumped right from the beginning and I certainly never expected the shocking end! ROSEMARY COTTAGE had a bit of everything: murder, love, intrigue, suspense, thrills, family feuds, and romance. It kept me guessing right up until the end which for me is a sign of a good author.
I've read a few of Colleen Coble's other novels and they didn't disappoint me either. I loved this one!
