Book Review: Larkspur Cove, by Lisa Wingate

After a lifetime of people-pleasing and allowing herself to be directed by the whims of others, Andrea Henderson moves to Moses Lake, TX to pursue a career of her own choosing, while navigating her new role as a single parent of her teenage son. After a run-in with the local game warden, Mart McClendon, Andrea deems him cocky and inconsiderate, but her opinion of him gradually improves as the two of them must work together to ensure the safety of a little girl who has seen too much in her young life.

There are so many things Lisa Wingate gets right in this book: the realistic way she portrays the dynamic between characters; the charming, gossipy small-town feel of Moses Lake; the characters’ introspective moments; the intensifying level of suspense; the themes of hope and compassion. Larkspur Cove is an enjoyable and satisfying read.
