Litfuse Tour: Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble #grow4christ

on August 7, 2013

About the Book: 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 Opinion:


I must apologize, I had a review all written and out and posted, I thought but I found out that during one of our internet fit’s apparently it got eaten and I wasn’t aware of that so… are my thoughts on a great book…..


There is one book before this one so I wasn’t real sure on which characters were which at first, like which woman was sister to Ben, who was married to whom, and so forth – no flipping to the back ‘cover’ on an e-book to remember – however I was able to get it straightened out in about chapter 4 so the rest of the book was smooth sailing (no pun intended).  Also the beginning was a little slow, but like other Colleen Coble books that quickly changed and had me flipping pages, even after I should have been in bed.  I really enjoyed the web of mystery, romance and intrigue that were in this story – and it didn’t seemed forced or faked and instead felt more like looking into a friend’s life as they worked things out.


Right from the start I just didn’t feel that Gina or Ben’s deaths were coincidental or merely accidents so I knew Colleen Coble was going to take us for a ride that it seems only she can do in her writing.  With superb twists and turns, including taking my mom’s heart for a spin a time or two, the book begins with Gina catching a last glimpse of her young daughter, the book will keep you enveloped in it’s small town charm that has secrets behind it’s cute diner and beautiful sand dune beaches.
