Rosemary Cottage-Book 2 of the Hope Beach Series

Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble is the second book in the Hope Beach series. The first book, Tidewater Inn, came out last year and you can read my review on that book here. If you really loved Libby and Alec from Tidewater Inn then you'll have a chance to learn more about them in this book. Although I have read Tidewater Inn I felt this was a stand alone book and you didn't need to have read Tidewater Inn to follow along with anything that happened in Rosemary Cottage.

In our second trip to Hope Island Colleen Coble introduces us to Amy and Curtis. Amy has recently lost her brother and Curtis has recently lost his sister so in many ways their grief bonds them before they ever get to know each other well. It's Amy's unwillingness to believe that Ben's death was an accident that drives her to return to the cottage that they've been summering at since they were children. Even as adults they continued to return in the summer to vacation at Rosemary Cottage together. In no time at all Curtis finds himself agreeing to help Amy look into the death of each of their siblings to see if there's something that the authorities missed. Amy and Curtis find themselves in harm's way on more than one occasion as their independent investigation proceeds.

Between the suspense of Amy and Curtis searching to find out what really happened to Ben (Amy's brother) and Gina (Curtis's sister) and the drama surrounding Gina's daughter Raine the story just seemed to get better and better as I read on. It seems as though the more Amy and Curtis worked to find the truth the more questions that were brought up concerning both Ben and Gina and their respective pasts. I can't wait to see who we get to meet in Book Three of the Hope Beach Series!

Book Info

About Rosemary Cottage: 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?
