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?
Amy Lang has arrived in Hope Beach to investigate her brother’s disappearance. He’s been presumed the victim of a rare shark attack and their overbearing father wants her to leave it alone, but Amy is convinced there’s more to the story. When certain events convince Curtis that she might be onto something, he agrees to help her. They both want to believe the best about their sibling, however, and this often leads to conflict. Ultimately, it transpires that neither of them knew Ben and Gina as much as they thought.
Rosemary Cottage is the second in the Hope Beach series by Colleen Coble and is as equally enjoyable as the first. There are appearances from characters from book one, Tidewater Inn, as well as new faces, many of whom behave appropriately suspiciously. There are several twists and turns, most of which I did not see coming. I did, however, work out the identity of Raine’s father and I’m sure others will too; some things just don’t add up.
Thank you to Litfuse and Thomas Nelson for my free copy of Rosemary Cottage, which I received in exchange for an honest review.
