Rosemary's Cottage Book Review

I have a wonderful book to share with you today called Rosemary's Cottage written by one of my favorite author's Colleen Coble. If you have ever read any of her books, you will delight in this one just like you did the others!
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?
This book has a little bit of  everything in it.  Mysteries, murder, kidnapping, romance and politics! Amy's brother, Ben was in the center of it all and Amy was determined to figure it all out. She did not believe her brother was in an accident at sea and died. She came back to her family's home on Hope Island hoping to find answers.

Curtis, who is with the Coast Guard decides to help her because his sister had also died and he was raising her child. He wanted to know what happened also and with the information he had, he thought Ben was the father and told Amy, who was shocked that her brother had a child and never told her about it.

Of course, there is a lot of lies and deception going on and everyone will be surprised what happens next. If you love a good romance with some high stakes mystery involved, then you will love this book! I gave it to my friend to read and she had a lot of praise for it, so if she thought it was that good, then I think it's safe to say that others will love it as well. She's a tough cookie on books so I trust her judgment. You will definitely want to get this book!

Happy Reading!
