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?

Amy is a midwife who moved to Rosemary Cottage to get some answers about the unexpected death of her brother Ben, but she never expected things to go down the way that they did. Soon she has fallen for a local guy named Curtis and his beautiful niece, and when connections are made between his sister Gina and her brother Ben, accusations and sparks fly.
Curtis is employed by the Coast Guard, and saving people is part of his every day routine, but can he saves those that he cares about from the evil bent on hurting them? After his sister died and left him with her daughter Raine, he isn't so sure.
Soon both Amy and Curtis find out that their siblings are not the people that they thought they were. When investigating their deaths leads to clues that compromise their memories, things get really heated. How can someone who never even met Ben and Gina think that they know them better than their own siblings?
I was really impressed with this book. I will admit that going into this book, I was a little bit reluctant because I had read one other book of Colleen Coble's and I remember telling my friend shortly after that it was slightly lacking. But Rosemary Cottage has made me a fan. I will definitely be checking out some of Coble's books on my next library trip. There wasn't too much romance, which, for me is a plus. I feel that if you need to include a bunch of ooey-gooey stuff to draw in a reader than you have a problem anyways. This books was suspenseful, intriguing, sweet, and totally unexpected. You never knew what was going to happen next, and every problem had a very unique answer. I don't want to spoil it for those of you who have yet to read this little gem, but I have to tell you how much I loved the conclusion. This book ended with some major action, and what happened was so unexpected that even Adrian Monk couldn't have seen it coming. It was fantastic. If you are looking for something to read this weekend, this is the book you need to get your hands on. Like me, you probably won't be able to put it down.
