Book Review: Larkspur Cove

Moses Lake was a constant place, on the surface. But you can't always tell by looking, what might be brewing underneath...

After surviving the worst year of her life, Andrea Henderson moves home to sleepy little Moses Lake, Texas, to recover her shattered faith and build a new life for herself and her son.

Game Warden Mart McClendon finds himself in Moses Lake for a different reason: to forget a tragedy for which he can't forgive himself.

But when a mysterious little girl is suddenly seen with the town recluse, these two unlikely allies are drawn together in a search for her identity. As wounded pasts collide, will their quest bring the redemption and hope they need--or consequences neither of them expected?

I found this book very difficult to get into. The first several chapters were very slow and I kept losing interest with all the plot and character set up that took place.

While I usually don't mind chapters being told by different character perspectives, I didn't enjoy the back and forth storytelling between the two main characters.

What I did like, however, was the way Andrea's profession was portrayed. We tend to think of those in Social Services as being hard and cold, but Andrea was caring and gentle. It was nice to see her portrayed that way.

I found this book hard to get through and it didn't hold my interest. It's not a book I would recommend.
