Publisher's Summary

Justine Hoffman has made a comfortable life for herself on the island of Friday Harbor. She is the proprietor of a successful boutique hotel, and she has the safe, predictable life she has always wanted. Growing up with her flighty, nomadic mother, Marigold, has instilled in her a deep longing for stability. But in spite of everything Justine has achieved, there is still something missing. Love. And after years of waiting and dreaming, she is willing to do whatever it takes to change her destiny.

What Justine soon discovers is that someone cast a spell on her when she was born, with the result that she will never find her soul mate. Determined to change her fate, Justine finds a way to break the enchantment, never dreaming of the dangerous complications that will follow.

And when Justine meets the mysterious Jason Black, she accidentally unleashes a storm of desire and danger that threatens everything she holds dear...because Jason has secrets of his own, and he wants more from her than fate will ever allow.

    "Too explicit"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author went overboard on the graphic sex scenes in the last of this series. Totally different from the first three. If I had read this one first I would not have bothered with the others. It almost seemed that it was a different author.

    "Okay...not my fav Kleypas book."
    Would you try another book from Lisa Kleypas and/or Tanya Eby?

    Yes. I love the Travis bother books! My all time favorites.


    Would you recommend Crystal Cove to your friends? Why or why not?

    Ehh, its okay. I'm not really into witchcraft stuff and this book is has the most in the Friday Harbor series.

    Story
    "Crystal Cove Friday Harbor Finale"

    I liked this story. Although a bit more fanciful than the others, it did sum up the series pretty well. She did play in a couple of the recurring characters. I liked it but not as much as the others in this series. However rooted in fantasy, the tale is still classic Lisa Kleypas when it comes down to the love story. Not a heart wrenching tale, but entertaining at most. Overall, not the best from Lisa Kleypas, but a solid performance.

    Story
    "not her best"

    call me "old fashioned" or a "stick on the mud" but i much prefer lisa kleypas's books about turn of the century lords and earls and dukes and london society much more than her writings about modern women and the subject matter that is especially in this book.
    the narrator did a good job though.

    "dissapointing"
    What disappointed you about Crystal Cove?

    all of it


    What could Lisa Kleypas have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I wanted her signature back! I noticed a little banter that was her and the last chapter. Beyond that there was no connection for me at all.


    Did Tanya Eby do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    eh


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    She quoted on of my favorite Connie Brockway scenes. "You are my Egypt" is a truly fabulous, romantic scene.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't love the bondage thing but I get she wants her audience happy. I just wish the characters were more... real. The whole situation seemed forced to me and the control issue was simply demeaning.
