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!

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.

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 . . .

The Best

Would you consider the audio edition of Larkspur Cove to be better than the print version?

Better.

Moonlight on the water.

Made me feel lovely inspired.

Not her best work

I've really enjoyed all of Lisa Wingates other books, but this one was only OK. I probably 3njoyed it less in the Audible format because the Male narrator's voice was annoying.

Heartwarming story

I found it a little hard to get into the first two chapters but after that I couldn't stop listening. I liked that she allowed the main characters to "get together" without a TON of cat and mouse games - they liked each other. I loved the other plots and how they came together with God's purposes for each person. The Narrators both did a fabulous job of bringing the story to life!!
