Book Description

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?

My Thoughts

This was a very well written and never dull book. I found that I never wanted to put this book down and it always had me wanting to read just one more chapter.

Amy and Curtis have a great friendship in spite of what is going on in the storyline. They both seem to have great hearts with lots of room for understanding and forgiveness. I love that Curtis stepped up as a single Father to Raine, his niece, after his sister passes away. I never expected for the book to go the way that it did but in the end but, it was all good. There are a few surprises here and there, or at least there was for me. This book had lots of suspense with the characters roles. Things never seemed to go as I expected them to go, which just means that this was well written.

This is the second book in this series but that is okay because it would be wonderful as a stand alone book also. This is also the first book that I have read by Colleen Coble and I cannot wait to read more of her work.
