Rosemary Cottage is a charming place to be on Hope Island. Amy Lang has a
lot of happy memories there with her family (especially her brother
Ben). Now, however, Amy has come there to grieve the loss of Ben but
also to find out what really happened to him. She’s also considering
moving her midwife practice to the Island. Curtis Ireland works for the
Coast Guard and is grieving the loss of his sister while raising her
daughter, Raine. Amy and Curtis are drawn to each other but each has
secrets. Will their secrets drive them apart when revealed? As they
investigate and dig further into the truth about the death of their
siblings, they find they’ve opened Pandora ’s Box. Sometimes the truth
can hurt, or even kill.
This is one of those stories that once
you pick it up it’s hard to put down. It’s loaded with twists and turns
that take you down unexpected paths, which is always a treat. I enjoyed
getting to know Amy and Curtis. Both are loyal and faith-driven people
who care deeply about others. If you’ve read Tidewater Inn, (book 1 in
the Hope Beach Series) you’ll be happy to know that Alec and Libby are
very much a part of this story. It was fun catching up with them. You’ll
find danger, suspense, romance and an ending that was both expected and
unexpected. I think this author did a great job of showing the effects
of sin and greed in a person’s life but also how God can change a heart.
But unfortunately, though a heart is changed, there are still
consequences to our behavior. If you enjoy a good romantic suspense then
head on over to Hope Island. If you’ve never visited there before I
recommend you start with Tidewater Inn, followed by a visit to Rosemary

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
