The Best Goodbye by @AbbiGlines Blog Tour! @atriaindies


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…

Abbi Glines is the New York Times, USA TODAY, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Rosemary Beach, Field Party, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys, and Existence series. A devoted book lover, Abbi lives with her family in Alabama. She maintains a Twitter addiction at @AbbiGlines and can also be found at and

Ever since we first met Captain several books ago, I’ve been excited to get his story. His background has always been secret and you can tell he’s into some legit crime stuff, but you don’t know for sure. The only thing we for sure know about him is that he’s Blaire’s half brother. Captain/River Kipling is a bit of a mystery. But don’t worry, you find out all about him in this book. The boy he once was, and the man he is today.

Rose Henderson is going undercover to work at the restaurant Captain is opening. She has uprooted her life to come there and work for him, but she doesn’t want him to know who she is. Not yet.

There is so much I want to talk about here, but I feel like anything I say about the Rose/Captain story line would spoil so much. So I’m going to be a little tight lipped about the plot. I loved how Abbi took us to the past, leading up to the one big event that changed River. This story is written in dual pov and switches from past to present fairly frequently. It’s fast paced and intriguing. Early on, you knew what had happened (more or less) but as you keep reading, you get to see the hows and the whys that are so important to their story.

Abbi Glines writes some of my favorite NA/YA books. Her Rosemary Beach series is one of my favorites (obviously since I’ve read all 13 of them). Glines takes you on an all consuming, emotional ride. When I finished this book my first thought was, I wish there was another Captain book. I didn’t want their story to end! If you’re a fan of this series and author, this is one you won't want to miss!
