MY THOUGHTS-Rosemary Cottage is one of those stories that pulls you right in to the lives of the characters. It opens with a murder and continues on with mystery, car bombing, suspense, romance and even some new births! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and I am sure you will too.
This is the second book in a series and I have read the first one, Tidewater Inn. I am not sure I would label this as a stand-alone novel as there are a lot of characters, but it could be read by itself. Definitely makes more sense when you have read the first one though. I thoroughly enjoy Colleen's writing style and this one was no exception. You feel like you are there on the beach and smelling the earth as they plant their garden. Or hearing Raine babble away:) Of course, you can also feel the heat after the car bomb! I am telling you, this is a very realistic book.
As I hinted above there is a lot of suspense. I kept thinking I had things figured out and then Colleen would throw in another twist. And the bad guy is the ultimate catch. I so wanted to pop this person in the face. And then you have the whole mixup with siblings. You see, Amy and Curtis are both thrown together when their siblings die. Or so they are told? Like I said, Colleen can spin some stories that leave you in the lurch. If you enjoy a sweet romance with a lot of mystery and suspense, give this one a try. You will be glad you did!
