Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate

Larkspur Cove is a story about a woman, Andrea, who moves home to the beautiful town of Moses Lake, Texas with her teenage son after a shocking divorce. Rather than wallow in self-pity, Andrea quickly gets a job as a counselor and moves on with her life as she jumps head first into the lives of those around her including trying to solve the "mystery" surrounding the town recluse being seen with a little girl.

The back of the book sold this to me as a mystery/thriller but other than about ten pages, there wasn't anything mysterious about this book. And to me, there wasn't anything very interesting about this book either. Even with the slight twist in the ending I was bored with how easily it all worked out. I did, however, like the strong-willed characters and feel like I was part of the lake community reading the book, but it just didn't do it for me. So while it's not bad, there is just nothing special about it.

*I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of this review.
