THE BEST GOODBYE
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.
“The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was . . “
After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.
Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh…something strange about the way she looks at Captain…
I absolutely love the Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines. The Best Goodbye is the 13th book in the series and focuses on Blaire’s half brother Captain. We have read about him in a few other books but never really got many details about him. He is a very quiet and mysterious character and I was excited to finally read his story.
This book is told in dual POV with some chapters going back to the past between the two main characters. Rose is currently working for Captain at his restaraunt in Rosemary Beach. There is a reason she is there but I won’t spoil it for you by going into any details. Captain is drawn to Rose and he doesn’t understand why. She stirs up memories from his past and it makes him uncomfortable at first but then he sees something in her that changes everything about his life. What is Rose hiding from Captain? What is she doing in Rosemary Beach?
“You can’t tell your heart to stop loving someone. I’d been trying that for years, simply to ease the ache of losing him.”
I really enjoyed all the angst and drama that this book had. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. It was nice to catch up with a few of the characters from previous books in the series. I feel like the ending was a little rushed and which was a little disappointing for me because I would have loved a look further into the future of Rose and Captain. I hope we will see more of these two in future books.
