Book Review - Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate



Publisher's blurb:
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?
 
My Review: I did not enjoy this book. I had a very hard time even getting into the first few chapters. I was on chapter 8 and still nothing of any significance had happened. Every other chapter switched from the perspective of the female lead to the male lead - it was confusing. I found it had too much back story and and very little plot. I literally had to force myself to finish this book because I had this review to write. While it took forever for anything to happen in the book, it ended very abruptly and left many questions unanswered. Sorry, I don't recommend this book.
