The Cottages on Silver Beach is a romance about an innkeeper, a FBI agent and a seven-year old disappearance that hasn’t been solved. Elliott is a suspended FBI agent and novelist working on a new project. Megan is an innkeeper taking care of the family business while being a guardian for her brother’s children. When an old school mate checks into her cottages old memories resurface.
This book was well-written and in both main characters voices. The story being told from their point of view helped me connect to their characters. It also helped me digest the story especially when Megan and Elliott took the trip to Hope’s Crossing to investigate the disappearance of Megan’s sister-in-law. I liked the fact this two characters have a history that isn’t all that great but their attraction to each other can’t be ignored. Having them take the trip gave enough time for both to get to really know each other again and set me up for an unsuspected reveal.
I believe the secondary characters where a compliment to the storyline. I also loved the hint of mystery which doesn’t overpower the plot. As far as the characters, I connected to Elliott’s writing and investigative side and Megan’s take care of others and independent nature. This was a wonderful story about forgiveness, finding the truth, redemption and love. I love the author’s writing style, her detail to the characters and her skills with describing areas that make you feel like you are there. I recommend this book to lovers of romance and women fiction.
