Coming to Rosemont by Barbara Hinske



This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. One randomly drawn winner will receive a $25 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.



Forensic accountant Maggie Martin survives the sudden death of her husband, the charismatic President of Windsor College, only to uncover the secrets of his carefully-concealed double life. Dealing with the financial and emotional wreckage left in Paul’s wake, she is stunned to learn he inherited an estate known as Rosemont in the seemingly-serene Midwestern town of Westbury. Why had he never told her?



Maggie travels to Westbury for the stated purpose of listing Rosemont for immediate sale, but what she really seeks are answers to her all-consuming questions about her sham of a marriage; her sham of a life. She never anticipated the seductive charm of Rosemont. Throwing her trademark caution to the wind, and over the objections of her opinionated grown children, she pulls up stakes and moves halfway across the country, determined to make a fresh start in Westbury. Behind closed doors, however, lurks a cadre of evildoers, playing with multiple wild cards of fraud, embezzlement and arson.



With a quiet, orderly – and distinctively solitary – life in mind, Maggie is instead thrown headlong into a crusade against political corruption, where defeat and retreat are not an option. Still bearing the scars of betrayal, will she find joy, romance and possibility in Westbury?



This fast-paced, smart novel has enough twists and turns to make the reader want to buckle in!


Enjoy an excerpt:



Maggie dropped to her knees and threw her arms around the squirming dog. “You don’t know how much I appreciate being able to have Eve with me tonight,” she beamed up at John. “My flight was delayed and I had a Chatty-Cathy car rental agent. I drove like a maniac to get here. I’m really very grateful you waited. The lot was empty and I thought that I was too late.”



“It was no trouble. I was catching up on paperwork,” John assured her. “I live on the other side of the Square and walk to work, weather permitting. I usually stop at one of the restaurants on the way home for dinner.”



“Are you done? Would you like a lift home?”



John knew an opportunity when he saw one. “I just need to lock up,” he said. “Are you hungry? Or are you full of delicious airline food,” he mocked. When she shook her head and indicated that she was, indeed, starved, he proposed that the three of them walk over to Pete’s for dinner. They could leave her car at the Hospital and she could drop him off at his house after dinner.


What I Have to Say:

This was a book that once I started, I didn't want to put down.  I literally fell in love with the characters and the town of Westbury.  This seems like a great place to live, but it is a little dangerous as well, as there are some corrupt people in office in this town that Maggie and her friends need to unseat.  This was a book that was well written, it had a great protagonist in Maggie, it was set in a great location, it had a great plot, it had a little romance, but was not graphic at all and wasn't sappy.  It also had a great dog in which I loved.  This book left off with a cliffhanger that was very well written, because I can't wait to pick up the next book in this series and find out what happens with Maggie and her friends.  I don't usually give stars or anything like that, but this book was way beyond a five star read!  Great job Barbara!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
