Book Review: Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate

Excerpt: As we crossed the lake, my stomach was churning, but not because of motion sickness this time. I couldn't stop picturing the little girl in the pickup truck, and trying to decide what emotions I'd seen on her face. Larkspur Cove, pg 105.

Back Cover: Moses Lake was a constant place, on the surgace. 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?

My Review: Larkspur Cove caught me from the very first page. I had to know what was going to happen to these characters. I had to figure out the mystery of the little girl. I had to know... and before I knew it the book was finished (even if my housework wasn't). Lisa Wingate did an amazing job with this story. The characters are interesting, varied, and real. I hurt with them, shivered with them in the terror of the night, and walked with them in the glory of the day. I couldn't put the book down.

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this book.
