Praise for Coming to Rosemont:
"In a category that doesn't often feature felonious crimes as a main plot point, it's somewhat surprising to see this title -- with corruption, fraud, and arson coursing through the story -- in a list of top performers. But with enough twists and turns to hook any reader's attention, an adorable dog on the cover, and some classic women's fiction tropes, Coming To Rosemont delivered more than enough firepower to win over our readers!" BookBub's Best: Women's Fiction (#4)
"In this series opener, Hinske immerses readers in a delightful small town....The joys of the tale come from the warm relationships and the story of a woman getting a second chance at life and love." Publishers Weekly (BookLife)

After years of unrequited devotion to her self-centered-college-president-embezzler husband, he dies suddenly, but not before one last utterance to his wife, Maggie, "I'm sorry" and "The house is yours." The house turns out to be a manor called Rosemont in Westbury, U.S.A. , which Maggie knew nothing about. Smitten immediately by its stately appearance, she decides to keep rather than sell the fabulous property, move to Westbury and begin her new life. This, she feels, is what she was truly born for: Mistress of Rosemont. Of course, she quickly learns all is not well in Westbury. There are problems, villains and intrigue that keep the plot moving sprightly along.
Maggie is a delightfully intimate woman who escorts us through the manor with delectable descriptions of each room that make you want to open windows and doors, run your hands over walls, curl up in a chair and stroll through the garden. The same can be said of the Westbury shops she visits, and the people she meets and befriends. This tightly constructed, plot-driven novel offers no down time whatsoever. But plot rests do occur in her detailed portrayals of the shops she visits, the table she sets and the pastries she peruses in her new friend's bakery. It is a sensual trove of sights and smells and feelings, a picture you want to be in, a town you want to visit, food you want to taste. Pure joy! But withal, no lack of action and gasps on every page and, of course, budding romance. There's much too much to be contained in this short first novel; so I am already looking forward to another Rosemont episode.
Send her to Washington immediately!
Grandma was delighted last week to find a copy of Coming to Rosemont in her mailbox from author Barbara Hinske. A gentle, easy to read tale that is full of optimism and hope despite all odds, this is a book that I greatly enjoyed. If you're like Grandma and learned long ago to never leave home without reading material, this is a great candidate.
Grandma's $0.02 - Fun to read, great for those who love a gentle romance. Recommended
I am hooked, and will sit up, reading, hope I don't surprise Santa! I am ending chapter
8, and as promised the intrigue is peaking, the personalities are well formed, and I
know I will be sad when get to page 226, the end of the book. I hope Barbara Hinske
will write more.......Merry Christmas

Good story with genuine characters. Easy read but hard to stop. Want to know what happens with characters. Sequels are equally good. Hope there are more to come.Published 24 days ago by Ruby Cook
Fast moving novel with a hint of romance in the midst of scandal and mayhem. The heroine seems much too good to be true but her determination to make a fresh start is inspiring. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Carol H
