Editorial Reviews

Review

Coming to Rosemont is the first book in the Rosemont series, and is now a BookBub Bestseller! 
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)

I look forward to reading her next book.
Kathleen Hook
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.
Posey Moore Nash
The characters were well developed as well as the plot.

I am not an avid fiction reader, but found the charming, quick-moving Coming to Rosemont so crammed with adventure, emotion and happenstance, it was hard to put down.
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.

What a delightful escape I had, curling up into Maggie's life. Coming to Rosemont has some mystery, a tinge of romance, plus personal growth in the life a woman whose world has been turned upside down. Hinske also brings out some wayward characters who provide twists and turns in the plot. I loved the way Maggie took charge of her life in spite of the pain she had suffered, and found adventure where she didn't expect it. Probably the most telling part of this recommendation is that I didn't want the book to end.

it was an easy enjoyable read. our book club chose it because the Author was from Phoenix and lives a few blocks from most of us. if you want a deep story with full blown characters this not the book for you. I'd say this is a pleasant beach or plane ride read

I anticipated the arrival of this book, and lucky me, it arrived today, Christmas Eve.
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

Format: Paperback
Maggie Martin has spent her entire married life as the woman behind the powerful man. When her husband suddenly dies, she learns that not all has been what it seemed. Among the many things that her husband has hidden from her is a house that she never knew he owned . . .

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

Coming to Rosemont is a captivating story of Maggie Martin, a soft-spoken woman who has lived for years in the shadow of her influential husband, while quietly building a successful career as a forensic accountant. When her husband's untimely death leads to the discovery of his double life, a life of marital betrayal and deception, her initial shame gradually turns to a steely resolve to start a new life. The star of this fresh, new novel is Maggie's surprise inheritance, Rosemont, a mansion and estate in disrepair half way across the country in a small Midwestern town. In many ways Rosemont is a mystical reflection of the greatness inside of Maggie, just waiting to break free. Isolated, empty and neglected, Rosemont has waited for years for Maggie to come home and bring it to life. It's the epicenter of the story. This delightful novel takes off with a roar from the first few pages and never lets you put it down. Maggie's inheritance thrusts her into a delightful adventure with new friends, a supportive community, a precious little dog named Eve and the promise of romance. But as she soon discovers, the idyllic small town where Rosemont is located has its own dark secrets, much like her deceased husband. This time, Maggie will not be deceived as she courageously exposes the powerful forces that control the town. Coming to Rosemont is a real page turner. I highly recommend it.

"Coming to Rosemont" started out well but as it progressed became too, too predictable and very boring. The main character turned into Martha Stewart, super mom, super politico, savior of the town, and captured the heart of most eligible man in town as well.

Send her to Washington immediately!
