Book Review: Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble

Rosemary Cottage (The Hope Beach Series) - Colleen Coble

Title: Rosemary Cottage (Hope Beach #2)


Author: Colleen Coble


Genre: Christian Fiction


Publisher:  Thomas Nelson


Available: NOW


Rating:  4 of 5 stars.


Summary:  Amy comes to Rosemary Cottage to help heal from the pain of her brother's mysterious death off the shores of Hope Beach.  Was it really an accident? Curtis is also morning the loss of his sister under tragic circumstances.  While they work through the mystery involving the loss of their loved ones, will they also find love?


This is the second book of Cable's in the Hope Beach series. Set on an island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the story is a mixture of romance and mystery.  While the beautiful surroundings of the island seem the perfect place for a romance, the atmosphere is disrupted by wrongful deaths and intrigue. Who killed Gina and Ben and why?


I love this series, because Cable creates for us interesting and diverse characters and sets us on edge in a place where we should usually feel comfortable and peaceful.  I think I liked this one even better than the first.


Recommend for:  Readers of Christian Romance/Suspence
