Rosemary Cottage (The Hope Beach Series #2) by Colleen Coble

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:  When I see a book penned by Colleen Coble I grab it because I know it's going to be good, no great story! 
Well, I didn't read Tidewater Inn the book that preceded Rosemary Cottage simply because I didn't know it was out but a friend told me not to worry because she felt that these books are stand alone reads . . . so taking her word for it . . . I began Rosemary Cottage.
When a story begins with a mystery you know it's going to be good.  
Amy receives a letter from a "friend" telling her/warning her that her brother's death may not be all that it seemed.  Ben, her brother, it seems may have been murdered.  Amy hasn't accepted that Ben's death was an accident but as she begins her own investigation will it be more than she bargained for?!?!  Do we really know those that are close to us?  Or do we all hide things and have secrets?  
Thus, begins the intrigue and mystery.  
Not to worry, Amy is not alone.  Enter . . . Curtis Ireland a Coast Guard officer and with a mystery of his own to solve.  Amy and Curtis both have secrets but will love override their differences?  
A great read with secrets, mystery and intrigue!  And the interesting side note that Amy is a midwife.  
A not to missed read by Colleen Coble readers!  A fantastic read!!
