Publisher's Summary

Her husband died suddenly and mysteriously, potential enemies surround her, bankruptcy looms, and the fabulous Black Trinity necklace that was to be her financial security has vanished. Now desperate and alone, Hannah McGarry has no choice but to turn to Archer Donovan, one-time silent partner in her late husband's Pearl Cove pearl-farming venture.

Archer would like to forget he'd ever heard of Pearl Cove and the dark memories it conjures up. But an outstanding debt is pulling him back into the lethal game alongside a beautiful, frightened woman who may know more than she is telling about a strange death and a missing treasure. Dangerous, uncharted waters lie ahead of them in their race for answers. And the closer they get to the coveted Black Trinity and its secrets, the closer Hannah and Archer come to their own inevitable ends.

Listen to another Donovan gem.

What the Critics Say

"Readers who have waited impatiently for this third book about the Donovan family won't be disappointed. Lowell combines her trademark sophisticated suspense and sexual intensity with a plot rich in the fascinating lore of cultured pearls and full of Australian atmosphere and the sights and sounds of Seattle." (Amazon.com review)

    "My favorite of the Donovan Series..."

    To really enjoy this book to the max, you should listen to all of the series in the proper order, Amber Beach, Jade Island, Pearl Cove, Midnight in Ruby Bayou. Although it does bog down a bit in the books on the abundance of detailed information on gems, you just can't beat the relationships/family/romance mix that Lowell does so well with this series. Archer was my favorite and Hannah gives him a run for his money. Great listen - enjoy!

    "Not a mystery story"

    This is what I think is called a romance novel, I bought it under the heading of Mystery. Very little mystery, smarmy sex story and lots of information on pearls- colors, cleaning, kinds etc. Not what I expected.

    "Enjoyable."

    I enjoyed this listen but wouldn't rank it as one of Elizabeth Lowell's best. The characters are engaging but sometimes a bit unbelievable and there are times the plot wanders. Despite this there was a solid enough mix of action, romance and mystery to make me reluctant to hit the 'pause' button.

    "pretty good, but not great"

    not bad. Decent story line, but I wasn't captivated by any means. It didn't suck me in and make it hard to turn off.

    "Great addition to the Donovan series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pearl Cove to be better than the print version?

    The Seattle Donovan series of books are fun and interesting look into the world of gem trading... World being the operative word, they travel all over the world. This one was a bit heavier than Jade Island and Amber Beach but still worthwhile.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The gunfight at the restaurant.

    "Not bad. 3.5"

    Really learned to dislike the heroine. Great hero. Could have been better.
    Lowell has such diverse writing topics, I believe it's hit or miss. This is a miss for me. The enchanted series is great. Even to the ends of the earth. This was lackluster. Narration very good.
