**ARC REVIEW** The Best Goodbye (Rosemary Beach, #13) by Abbi Glines

Rating: 4 Stars
Reviewer: Liz


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’d failed her in the end. I hadn’t saved her after all. Loving me was what had killed her.” ~ Captain

The Best Goodbye is the first of Abbi Glines I have read, and it won’t be my last. It was such a sweet read full of so much love. My heart skipped a few beats throughout this book.

Addy aka Rose has sought out the love of her life. She is very guarded of her life now and who she brings into it. When she discovers what River aka Captain is now like she is unsure if she wants him to be a part of it. When he finally discovers who she is, he is unable to let her go again. He wants to love her all over again. The feels from years past has brimmed back to the surface.

What I love about Abbi’s writing is that fact that she hardly has filler fluff in her writing. I love that the story is always moving and you get to feel how the characters are feeling and the emotions that roll through them. I felt a part of the story, as if I was in the book experiencing it.
I highly recommend this book if you’re after a light hearted read, yet it’s still filled with a little angst. 

You get the flash backs from when Addy and River were younger. Seeing each point of view really gives you a better understanding of what has gone on in each of their lives and the experiences they have been through.

I’m so glad it was a HEA and I look forward to reading more from Abbi Glines in the future. Well done Abbi!
