Great start the series

Lisa Wingate has written a wonderful story/romance filled with believable, imperfect characters complete with insecurities and shaken faith. I appreciated that the leads were genuine - they worked, they conflicted with their teen-age children, they had disagreements with relatives, and they cared about their community. The romance was sweet and just taking root when the book ended.
I enjoyed the two voices in the audiobook. They did a wonderful job!

Helping, Healing and Finding One's Place

Life doesn't turn out the way we expect . . . and there's plenty of blame to go around . . . bitterness is building a little nest in Andrea's heart, even as she moves back to Larkspur Cove with her fourteen-year-old son, Dustin . . . into her parents' lake house . . . Andrea's dismayed to find that the apron strings, thought long cut, are very much tied, and her parents have strong opinions on everything she does . . . or doesn't do . . . crushing her already broken spirit, after her divorce and move back home . . . as Andrea struggles to find her place, succeed in her new job as a counselor among the needy, hurt and rejected citizens, Dustin, missing his father and the closeness of their once intact family, begins to lie and slowly rebel under his mother's authority . . . caught with some other under-age boys with beer out on a boat in a dangerous area of the lake, Andrea is forced to deal with Dustin's behavior . . . and with game warden, Mart McCullen . . . the story is wonderfully southern, with a host of characters, gathering at the WaterBird Bait and Grocery . . . each with a unique personality, which I've grown to love . . . even Sheila, Pop Dorsey's hippie daughter who is forever trying to feed the customers tofu and substitute decaf for regular coffee . . . the discovery of little Birdie, living out in the boonies with Len tugged at my heart strings . . . and was a mystery that pulled Andrea and Mart together, as well . . . a great story, gently told of two adults, having been through tragedies and hardships separately, learning to heal, to stop blaming God, and to finally see the blessings before them . . . highly recommend . . .

Larkspur Cove

This is an engaging, sweet, romantic, mystery thriller, that is performed well. The readers sound like the characters in a first person story should.

Author needed to reach a word count, obviously

First, the narration was just awful; both voices. Too slow and too uneducated-sounding. Then their was the long-winded narration. Good lord, it took an hour of listening for 5 minutes of interaction between the characters. To the author: Let us form our own visions, our own inferences, our own understanding. I have never felt as uncomfortable listening to a book than I did with this one. Move it along! Let something to the imagination! And what a spineless female protagonist!
