Author: Colleen Coble Publisher: Thomas Nelson Publication Date: 7/9/13
Book Description: 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?
My Overall Feeling of the Book:
This book made me want to keep reading. It was so full of mystery that I thought I had some figured out but didn't know for sure. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, it would take a turn and surprise me.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book in the series as well as more of the mystery and intrigue genre. A Brief Excerpt:
"The sun heated his arms, but that wasn't the reason her was warm. What was it about her anyway? He'd taken one look at her and had been instantly drawn to her. He wanted to know what she was thinking, what made her tic,. What had her life been like growing up?"
