Rosemary Cottage is the second Hope Beach novel by Colleen Coble.

 About the Book

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)

 My Review
 I LOVED this book! I could not put it down for the suspense surrounding two murders. Colleen is an excellent writer and did a great job with the characters and the plot. I was not sure I would like this book because I enjoy more historical fiction but I was wrong! The romance is there but I was more interested in the mystery then the two love birds. I thought I had the story line figured out but then it took a twist and I was lost until the end. I have not read the first book in the series Tidewater Inn. 
I don't think it is necessary to read the first book but I know there are the same characters in each and I feel like I need to read it now to understand a different back story. 
Great book and I highly recommend to those who like a little suspense! 

"I received this book from Litfuse for free in exchange for an honest review."


Water can be calming and healing, but it can also be dangerous, as Amy Lange and Curtis Ireland both found out. Both lost their siblings to the sea, and they hope to find healing on Hope Island. But will they find it, or will their quest to find answers set them at odds with each other and with those who have secrets that need to stay hidden?
