    "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!

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "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 . . .

    "Another Winner from Wingate!"
    Any additional comments?

    This story captured me right away. A fan of Wingate's work, Larkspur Cove did not disappoint, Varying first-person perspectives between the main characters gave a deep look into the insecurities that plague us all. Set in a quaint, memorable Texas town, I easily came to adore the people of Moses Lake. The work that can haunt the lives of those in service to the public is poignantly explored. Wingate's words are well-read by Johanna Parker and Scott Sowers.
