Blueberry Cove, Maine, is as small-town as small towns get. More than a little quirky, it has sheltered generations of families. But there's always room for a new face.
Fixing things has always been Alex McFarland's greatest gift and keenest pleasure. But with her own life thoroughly broken, she's signed on to renovate the dilapidated Pelican Point lighthouse, hoping to reconnect with herself. The last thing she expects is to find herself falling in love - with the glorious coastline, with age-old secrets and welcome-home smiles - and with rugged Logan McCrae, the man she just might be able to build new hopes on. DIY is so much better with two.

"I Expected Too Much of Pelican Point...."
Pelican Point seemed like an exciting book for me to listen to, as it takes place on the rural coast of Maine – a place I know very well.
The beginning was strong, but after that it just seem to muddle along. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't 'blow me away.' It was too descriptive and detailed. Everything was repeated, from the condition of the lighthouse to the trees, the water, the land, etc.
I won this book in a contest but have not been able to finish it (I'm about halfway through) and putting it aside for now. I will not pursue this series nor would I recommend it as anything but average.
I have mad respect for authors, as it takes courage and self-discipline to write and put your product out to the public. So, Donna Kaufman, I appreciate your effort. This book just didn't do it for me.
The narration was good to better.
Notes: some descriptions of sex - PG
I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read them the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select yes directly below this paragraph? Thank you so much.
Please consider "following me" here on Audible.com. I purchased a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to. I also have the opportunity to review books in all genres, many that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and narrators. Thanks!
I really didn't get through the whole thing! Just "meh..." I fell asleep about ten minutes in, must get an award for most repeat listens!
"Couldn't get past the first couple chapters"
The author spent a whole chapter with the heroine in a fog, taking in the hero's extraordinary great looks and about 5 minutes on his deep baritone voice. When the hero spoke tho, he sounded like a teenage cartoon character. I realize it's hard for women to do men's voices but I think my biggest criticism is that it was all just too boring to listen to. People who love, love, romance novels would probably like this book but for me there was too much of the heroine being fainting and delicate and swooning over the hero's good looks. I just couldn't get past the first 4 chapters and had to return the book.
Maybe I should have read through the reviews more thoroughly. I would still check out other books in this genre.

"Don't take no for an answer"
I admire lighthouses, so anyone who restores them would be of interest to me.
Alex, as she is plucky.
Old homes can be new homes.
"Enjoyed! Love the towns people!"
The narrator is excellent bringing each character into his/her own! It's an easy read/listen.
The main characters Logan and Alix but certainly the towns people all highlight this beautiful story.
Life of each character was superb!! Felt like I was right there.
No but it took no time to finish.
I enjoyed the whole Lighthouse restoration story and what will happen. I enjoyed the characters immensely but I could have lived without all the sexual parts..I felt that was a bit overwhelming and not needed as it had a great story line.
