Publisher's Summary

Blueberry Cove, Maine, is as small-town as small towns get. More than a little quirky, it has sheltered generations of families. But there's always room for a new face.

Fixing things has always been Alex McFarland's greatest gift and keenest pleasure. But with her own life thoroughly broken, she's signed on to renovate the dilapidated Pelican Point lighthouse, hoping to reconnect with herself. The last thing she expects is to find herself falling in love - with the glorious coastline, with age-old secrets and welcome-home smiles - and with rugged Logan McCrae, the man she just might be able to build new hopes on. DIY is so much better with two.

I Expected Too Much of Pelican Point....


Pelican Point seemed like an exciting book for me to listen to, as it takes place on the rural coast of Maine – a place I know very well.

The beginning was strong, but after that it just seem to muddle along. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't 'blow me away.' It was too descriptive and detailed. Everything was repeated, from the condition of the lighthouse to the trees, the water, the land, etc.

I won this book in a contest but have not been able to finish it (I'm about halfway through) and putting it aside for now. I will not pursue this series nor would I recommend it as anything but average.

I have mad respect for authors, as it takes courage and self-discipline to write and put your product out to the public. So, Donna Kaufman, I appreciate your effort. This book just didn't do it for me.

The narration was good to better.

Notes: some descriptions of sex - PG

I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read them the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select yes directly below this paragraph? Thank you so much.

Please consider "following me" here on Audible.com. I purchased a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to. I also have the opportunity to review books in all genres, many that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and narrators. Thanks!

Couldn't get past the first couple chapters

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

The author spent a whole chapter with the heroine in a fog, taking in the hero's extraordinary great looks and about 5 minutes on his deep baritone voice. When the hero spoke tho, he sounded like a teenage cartoon character. I realize it's hard for women to do men's voices but I think my biggest criticism is that it was all just too boring to listen to. People who love, love, romance novels would probably like this book but for me there was too much of the heroine being fainting and delicate and swooning over the hero's good looks. I just couldn't get past the first 4 chapters and had to return the book.

Has Pelican Point turned you off from other books in this genre?

Maybe I should have read through the reviews more thoroughly. I would still check out other books in this genre.

What didn’t you like about Lauren Fortgang’s performance?

The hero's voice sounded like a teen cartoon character.

Just what I needed!

This is a lovely story that is relaxing to listen too. It has a great setting, a strong sexy guy and a relatable heroine. The narrator is perfect.

Wonderful

I am a big time Robyn Carr fan. Virgin River and this town Blueberry Cove in Maine are places where I’d like to live. This delightful story is about a woman whose world was shattered and how she returns to the “living”. Donna Kauffman did a great job with the characters who are kind and real; the story line is without violence or ill repute. It’s a feel good “read” all around. I have read all of Robyn Carr’s works I was really worried in what direction I would go to find another terrific series. Now I know. Thank you Donna Kaufman.

Weak woman, strong man. No thanks.

Lame damsel in de stress narrative. A set back for women everywhere. Weak woman, strong man. Yuck.

Beautiful story

This book is up there with Virgin River and Angels Rest for me. I love this story and the elements with the lighthouse, past losses, the romance, etc. Loved it.

Pelican Point

I was not a fan of the narrator's choice for how to perform Logan's deep voice. And the "boy loses girl" beat of the plot was contrived. But as usual, I read these books not because they're high literature, but because they're light and soothing and they don't stress my nervous system, for which I am glad.
