Book Review: Sanctuary Cove by: Rochelle Alers

Sanctuary Cove (A Cavanaugh Island Novel)
My Rating: 1 of 5 stars

Synopsis: Still reeling from her husband's untimely death, Deborah Robinson needs a fresh start. So she decides to pack up her family, box up her bookstore, and return to her grandmother's ancestral home on Cavanaugh Island. The charming town of Sanctuary Cove holds happy memories for Deborah. And, after she spies a gorgeous stranger in the local bakery, it promises the possibility for a bright, new future.

Dr. Asa Monroe is at a crossroads. Ever since the loss of his family, he has been on a quest for faith and meaning, traveling from one town to another. When he meets Deborah, the beautiful bookstore owner with the warm eyes and sunny smile, Asa believes he has finally found a reason to stay in one place.

As friendship blossoms into romance, Deborah and Asa discover they may have a second chance at love. But small towns have big secrets. Before they can begin their new life together, the couple must confront a challenge they never expected . . .

Review: I wanted to love this book but it moved very slowly and I just couldn't get into it. The characters didn't hold me enthralled like I wanted them to. The setting is amazing and I did fall in love with the island but it wasn't enough to keep me invested in the story. Check out these other reviews for a different opinion:
