Review: Home at Rose Cottage by Sherryl Woods (e-book)

First line: The tears on her cheeks were still damp and her temper was still hot, when someone - no, not just someone, the family calvery - pounded on the door of Melanie's Boston apartment.

Synopsis from B&N: With her unforgettable warmth and charm, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sherryl Woods invites you to join the D'Angelo sisters as they journey home to Rose Cottage… - a place where hearts heal and love blooms.

Three Down the Aisle
She came to Rose Cottage to concentrate on her needs for once. The last thing Melanie expects is to meet a handsome landscaper and his troubled little girl. She knows they need her help to truly become a family…but can she let father and daughter into her heart without losing herself in the process?

What's Cooking?
A refuge is what Maggie is hoping to find—an escape from yet another unsuitable affair. She hopes her time at Rose Cottage will allow her to find out who she is without a man. But when her lover follows her all the way to the Chesapeake Bay, she has no choice but to consider what's really keeping her from a successful relationship.

My thoughts: I love Sherryl Woods - her books are always fun and have a sweet quality to them. This book contains the first two of her Rose Cottage Sisters stories - Three Down the Aisle and What's Cooking? Having two sisters and a few sisters-in-law, I can appreciate the way these sisters get involved in each other's lives, protecting and butting in whether it is wanted or not.

In the first story, Three Down the Aisle, we get our first glimpse of the D'Angelo sisters when they descend upon Melanie, who has just found out her boyfriend has a separate life that includes a wife and children. Devastated, her sisters plead for her to head down to her grandmother's old cottage in Virginia to take some time for herself. The last thing she expected was to meet and fall in love with another man, a man with a daughter who had her own set of problems. Will Mike and Melanie be able to make their relationship work?

In the second story, What's Cooking?, Maggie flees to Rose Cottage to figure out exactly what her attraction to Rick is. Rick, of course, finds out where she is, after speaking with one of the sisters and heads down to Virginia himself. What ensues is a fun, sweet story of courting, made all the more charming with the story of the elderly couple that Rick finds himself involved with.

Rose Cottage seems to be a magical place, where when one stays there to either heal a broken heart or try to figure out what the heart is doing, unexpected love appears. This cottage seems like the perfect spot to relax, unwind, and let life take its course - I wish I had a place on the water like that! I enjoyed reading about Melanie and Maggie's stories and look forward to meeting the other two sisters in Return to Rose Cottage
