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?

Another well written book by Colleen Coble. I always enjoy her books, but this one was a little more difficult for me to get into. The characters were drawn out and flawed, which is a good thing, but I had difficulty in connecting with the main character, Amy. There really were times when I kind of wanted to smack her for naivety (someone indicates her brother's death may not have been accidental and she automatically opens her house to a person she's never met before? And then, when she catches that person snooping, she believes the lie she's fed? Hmm. One eyebrow is raised.)and her bullheadedness which, in my opinion, bordered on total disregard for Curtis's & Edith's feelings. Amy, a naturally optimistic person, has a hard time being transparent with Curtis - a man who becomes more than just a passing fancy for her. At the beginning, the romance felt stiff and pressured as it seemed they were always accusing the other's sibling of dubious deeds and neither were willing to believe that their own sibling wasn't perfect and having flaws. One thing that I very much enjoyed about this book, was the natural way Amy approached life. Using herbs and tinctures, etc, I found those parts extremely interesting and actually think a little more would have been awesome. I love stuff like that and was thrilled to see it take a major role in this book. If you like plot twists and turns, and don't like being able to figure out an entire ending, this book will deliver and I found myself doing the 'argh! I didn't see that one coming!' at the end. This was a good book that I would recommend to lover's of Christian fiction. This book isn't overtly Christian, and some non-Christian fiction readers would find it enjoyable as well. *My thanks to the publisher for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. These thoughts are my own, and I was not required they be positive.**
