When Andrea Henderson moves to Moses Lake, Texas, with her son, she is looking for solace from an ordeal that shattered her life and shook her faith. Adventure is the last thing on Andrea’s mind. After surviving the worst year of her life, she’s struggling to build a new life for herself and her son with a job as a social worker. Perhaps in doing a job that makes a difference, she can find some sense of purpose and solace in her shattered faith.

For Moses Lake’s new game warden Mart McClendon, finding a sense of purpose in life isn’t an issue. He took the job to get out of southwest Texas and the constant reminders of a tragedy for which he can’t forgive himself.

But when a little girl is seen with the town recluse, Mart and Andrea are drawn together in the search for her identity. The little girl offers them both a new chance at redemption and hope--and may bring them closer than either ever anticipated.

    " This book was pretty good. The only thing that bothered me was that it took awhile to get into the book. It was hard for me to stay with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ev | 1/25/2014

    " It's OK. I liked the first one in this series better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora | 12/19/2013

    " I found this to be a very enjoyable book. I believe some people who read this book don't like it as much since the plot is predictable in a sense, but sometimes when we read a book for recreation and enjoyment that is what we need! I personally read books for many reason and enjoy books based on characters and situations rather than the story or plot sometimes. Lisa Wingate's characters are insightful and have depth, which is nice to see. I appreciated some of the people and situations is this book, because I have been in them myself as I worked as a park ranger on a lake, and so I found some of the humorous subtleties in the story that others might not see. I really appreciated her use of quotes (as I am a quote person) in the wall of the local tourist shop and her wisdom on life situations shining through her characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 12/6/2013

    " This book was about Andrea starting over after her divorce. She is a counselor who does field work in the backwoods of Moses Lake, Texas. "

    " Having not been through a divorce I can't say that this portrayal is accurate but it sure feels that way. How do you regain your self confidence? I couldn't buy into the dramatic ending but enjoyed the book just the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 12/7/2012

    " I felt like I was spending the summer by the lake. Larkspur Cove was realistic without being dishonoring or gratuitously graphic. It is edge-of-the-seat suspenseful. Yum. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 8/3/2011

    " I wasn't thrilled with the setup of the book- alternating chapters based in first-person of Mart and Andrea. It got frustrating every so often. I can kind of understand, but it's not for me. "
