Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble

Thursday, July 18, 2013

The cottage by the sea offers Amy a refuge to mourn her brother’s death and perhaps even discover a new love. But what if Ben’s death was no accident?
Rosemary Cottage on the Outer Banks of North Carolina has been in Amy Lang’s family for generations and offers her a haven within its peaceful walls. There she hopes to discover what really happened to her brother, Ben, even as she tries to come to grips with his death in the ocean months before.
She hopes the Coast Guard team will help her find closure, but they are quick to dismiss her concerns of foul play. Everyone in Hope Beach regards the suspicious e-mail she received as a vicious prank. When it seems discovering what happened to Ben will take longer than she expected, Amy moves her midwifery practice to Hope Beach.
Coast Guard officer Curtis Ireland may hold the key to many of her questions, but he also hides a secret that will change her world forever. And her own secrets could tear apart the fragile love developing between them. Will Amy have the courage to put down her mask and let Curtis love her for who she is? And can they both weather the danger that threatens to destroy the most precious thing in their lives?

Goodreads Blurb

                Amy Lang is struggling to cope with her brother’s death.  Ben’s death was an accident, but Amy is suspicious and decides to return to the scene of the accident after receiving an anonymous email.  Being back at Hope Cottage, where Amy and her brother spent happy summers as children, feels right.
                Curtis Ireland lost his sister, Gina, and is trying to protect his infant niece, Raine.  Raising Raine with his Aunt Edith is not easy, but Curtis loves the little girl.  The two, Amy and Curtis, may be connected by Raine.  Mystery surrounds Ben and Gina; the deeper Amy and Curtis dig, the more questions emerge. 
                The characters and plot of Rosemary Cottage are fantastic.  This novel had me guessing until the end and rooting for Amy and Curtis as their romance developed.  I refuse to ruin the story, so I will not give away anymore!
