Blurb: When following your dream lands you in Lobster Cove, Maine, anything is possible.

After gaining custody of his younger brother, Boone Jensen moves to a unique LGBT community on the coast of Maine. There, he hopes to find work as a stonemason, heal his broken heart and give his brother a safe place to call home.

Life was good in New York City for chef Dante Madia, until his business partner betrayed him. Determined to trust only himself, Dante risks everything on a new restaurant venture in a small fishing village built on acceptance.

Neither man is looking for love, but in a town like Lobster Cove, secret dreams have the ability to become realities



I am looking forward to more from the residents of Lobster Cove and reconnecting with the folks at Cattle Valley, but this installment fell a little flat for me. It was probably all me, as I’ve come to expect a little angst and lots of hard work for my guys to make it work, and this time it didn’t quite happen.

Dante and Boone are really sweet together, and with Boone’s little brother Laddy, it was very cute, but it wasn’t very interesting and it took me too long to finish this short story. This is not normal for me with this series (Cattle Valley) so I will chalk it up to an anomaly and will eagerly await the next book. I went back and looked over my reviews of Cattle Valley and find that I either 5 starred and loved them to the moon and back, or just liked them so, so.

I was thinking that is probably how life is in general. I can’t expect every resident of Lobster Cove to have a heartbreaking story, and if they did, that would grow old fast, so I am going to just accept that Dante and Boone have it easier than many and just move on.

Overall Impression: I liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
