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?
- Awful narration!!!
I am really not certain about the story because I couldn't get past the narrator Devon O'Day. I believe I heard her on another audio book and was just as off-put.
Ms. O'Day has a sing-songy voice which doesn't alway match the emotion intended in the book. When it's a tragedy, it's sing-songy. When it's something scary coming up, it's sing-songy.
A good narrator needs to be consistent in her voice with the feel at the moment in the book. I seriously couldn't stand what I was hearing. It made the book awful. I'm sure Ms. Cobel wrote a wonderful book, but you need to get a new narrator.
- Great story...misleading information
I love Colleen Coble's books and this one was no exception. Unfortunately, the audiobook is advertised here as being unabridged when it is very much abridged! Had I known this, I would not have purchased it because after listening to the audiobook, I had to go purchase a paperback copy of the book to read and fill in the missing pieces of the story.
I highly recommend this book, but not the abridged audiobook version.
