It Could've Been Better

While I found the characters interesting and the plot itself really sweet. . . it felt to me like there was too much left unexplored especially in regards to the emotional baggage both being carried (double for the MMC given he is a father). And with how short the story is we barely get an HEA and what it needed desperately to make it a solid HEA was an epilogue about them instead of a flashback that told us something we(the reader) already had been told. I also struggled a bit with the narrator whose voice for the MMC felt odd at times and felt too upbeat during certain solemn scenes. Beyond that it wasn't an unenjoyable listen, just not as satisfying as I thought it'd be given how much I enjoyed the premise and characters.

Sweet Christmas story

Our heroine’s aunt offers her remote cottage to a handsome doctor and his son for the holiday, meanwhile sending her single niece there, also. Matchmaking at its best.

Just not quite there...

Was looking forward to listening to this book. Loved the fact that it was set in England and the narrator has an English accent. But the characters did not quite win me over. Particularly Nile, who, after listening to about half the book, still did not seem to be a substantial and real person.

Boring Beyond Belief

What disappointed you about Christmas at the Cove?

The book had the perfect setting and plot: Christmas at the cottage beach house where a handsome widowed father and his son share the space with a recently broken hearted woman. Except the whole entire listen was so amazingly boring. This book was not cute, sweet, funny, endearing or charming. This book seriously needs a pulse.

Would you ever listen to anything by Victoria Connelly again?

Yes, I really did like Ms. Connelly's voice and narration style. Tis not her fault she had lifeless material to work with.

Christmas at the Cove

Where does Christmas at the Cove rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Lovely heart warming story. Loved the characters and the storyline. Only problem was it was too short. By time you had got to know the characters, the story had ended. Another well read book by Jan Cramer who again brought Victoria Connelly's Characters to life.

Gentle Christmas romance

This is a cosy, heartwarming story to give you a bit of cheer if you are feeling the effects of January blues. It is short, which is its only fault, but on the other hand, you already know that before you buy, so no point I having unrealistic expectations of a story with a deep plot.
Despite this, the three the characters are likeable and there is potential for a sequel. I would definitely like to know more about the lives of the characters and their developing relationships.
