Colleen Coble’s latest book Rosemary Cottage has launched out of the stores, landing her on the USAToday bestseller’s list for the first time! As someone who has read her books since the Rock Harbor series, I am thrilled to see her succeed. And this story is a fun one — one my daughter and I equally enjoyed.
Set on Hope Beach, a fictional location along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I was drawn back into the setting with the characters I came to enjoy in Tidewater Inn. This book is a multi-layered mystery with a wonderful blend of romance. Amy Lange has returned to Rosemary Cottage to mourn the death of her brother. Curtis Ireland still isn’t over the death of his sister. The two connect over Curtis’ niece Raine. They determine to get to the bottom of what happened and twists keep pitting them against each other even as they are drawn together.
This book kept me guessing even as I anticipated some of the twists. My daughter was absolutely convinced I could never anticipate everything that would happen. She was right — though I did unwind more of it than she did! I love a book that keeps me guessing. I enjoy books with a satisfying romance. Put the two together, and I am a very happy reader. This book is perfect for those who love romantic mysteries.
