    Mystery, action and romance. A great combination. I grew to love the little town through the seemingly mundane, yet interesting uniqueness of the area. I'm not familiar with small towns and I liked this portrayal of one. The locals seemed realistic and added an interesting flavor to the story. Both Len & Birdie were intriguing characters not seen in most story writing. Neither were their challenges typical, yet the unfolding of their growing relationship & trust was heartwarming to see. It made me look at their situation with new eyes. Each individual was imperfect and their struggles and growth were interesting, though one issue of Andrea's was frustratingly slow. Just as in real life.

    Something fresh & different from most books. The little community had it's magical moments I'll not soon forget. This author is one I'll be looking for due to her creativity, character development and ability to keep my interest. The start was a little slow, but the book was well worth the read. The ending leaves one issue uncertain, but I can see why it can't be resolved so quickly.

    This book started out a little slow for me. I was about a quarter of the way through before I really got interested, but after that I didn't want to put it down. The story flows smoothly enough. The author's description of the Moses Lake and Larkspur Cove communities really drew me in. I love small towns!

    The characters were well written, but I didn't feel a real connection with Bart or Andrea. I can relate to their feelings of loss, but that's really where my connection ended. I did enjoy watching Andrea begin to heal from her divorce and watching her grow as a person. However, I didn't feel like Bart grew or changed at all. Sure, he made some decisions regarding how he was handling his life, but I felt they were kind of abrupt. The secondary characters, the regulars at the Waterbird Bait and Grocery and Len and Birdie made the story far more interesting.

    The reason I'm giving this book four stars is because of the message. My new favorite thing to do while reading a book is to mark passages that really speak to me. While I didn't mark up the whole book with sticky notes, I did mark several pages that I thought made excellent points. The message of the book is two-fold. Andrea realizes that having joy, real joy, in your life was a choice each of us has to make. She also has to learn that God is there, even when you can't see Him, hear Him, or when you deny He is. He is in all places and you only have to be still and listen to hear Him. Mart learns that when times get tough, it's easy to blame God instead of realizing that while we don't know why things happen, God does and you don't do any good by turning your back on your faith.

    Overall, this was an enjoyable story. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    There was a lot of information in this book about Moses Lake and the area. I liked the Wailing Woman story and the mockingbirds. I liked Mart's character being the game warden and his buddies at the Waterbird. I liked Len and Birdie. I learned so much from Len teaching Birdie about the simplest things and Birdie was so content with what she had. I understood Dustin and his problems. What I had trouble with was Andrea and her problems. She seemed really shallow like sneaking down to the boathouse was so childish. She kept watching the water at night looking for Mart coming in his boat. Her and Mart were adults. The middle of the book got so sluggish repeating Andrea's problems that I got bored. Then, toward the end things picked up and it became a page turner to get to the end. It was an OK read.

    This review was written for Larkspur Cove - eBook.
    This was a good read. This is a good book prevalent to today's society. I like the discussion questions as we use them to review our book for book club.

    I REALLY enjoyed this book and Lisa Wingate has quickly become one of my new favorites! I enjoyed the element of mystery in her story and found her message to be inspiring. I would highly recommend this book and the second in the series--Blue Moon Bay.
