Pelican Point is the first in a new series by Kauffman called the Bachelors of Blueberry Cove. Kauffman is known for writing humorous and witty stories, and Pelican Point has that in its favor. Add in a small coastal town in Maine with a historical lighthouse as a backdrop, and an interesting cast of secondary characters, and readers who enjoy descriptive small-town contemporary romances will delight with this one. With equal parts humor and character drama, and a storyline and sweet romance that flows nicely, Pelican Point is a great welcome to Blueberry Cove.
Alex McFarland has arrived in Blueberry Cove, Maine, to renovate the Pelican Point lighthouse and continue her family’s restoration business after a family tragedy. Alex’s plan is to rediscover the lighthouse, to heal it and to make it whole again. But she never thought that she would come to small-town Maine and fall in love with the town ... and police chief Logan McCrae. Now Alex isn’t too sure what is being made whole again: the Pelican Point lighthouse or herself. (KENSINGTON, Nov., 344 pp., $14.00)
