This was a good read, but a bit darker than some of the others in the series. I'm starting backwards, and this is one of the earliest I've read. I'm used to the townsfolk being very understanding and kind for the most part, so it was hard to read about poor Carl and the life he'd led. While Molly was having a hard time with her life, she'd met the understanding and kind Matt. They got along with their great kids, made a connection and while it wasn't smooth sailing, had an easier time. Even when her ex stepped in. once Molly let go of her anger, they got along and Matt let go of the guilt over his wife. Carl had to fight all along the way to get any kind of respect. I'm a bit shocked how everyone in town, even his own brother, looked down on him and treated him so poorly. Clearly the man had been railroaded, yet no one wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. And any good things he'd done growing up never seemed to matter. My heart broke for him as he was so clearly unwanted. I was thankful that eventually things did work out, realizations were made, and he had a family and a new life. Thanks to Ben doing his calling. Sophie and husband also just broke my heart. This one will make you cry out for the injustice, bask in the warmth of friends and family, and make you cry in it's sadness as life continues on it's great circle.

I like Kincaid and Spencer and hope they write lots more books. If you like Jan Karon, you'll probably love this series. It's not intense or highly intellectual but just thoughtful, heartwarming and encouraging without being preachy or overbearing. Also does not include the gratuitous sex of so many of the escape romances.

The Cape Light Series are some of my favorite novels of all time. These books will leave you feeling so content with life. It shows you that people everywhere experience miracles and tragedies throughout life. But it gives you something to look forward to, your own life, and it encourages you to enjoy it and not let it pass you by. You will love the people of Cape Light like a family by the time you are done reading these novels!

A New Leaf is just a good as the others in this series. I read it in two weeks (had to go to work and sleep). I just love these books. I hope the series continues to grow. I've read alot by the big names (Nora, Jackie, Danielle, James P, etc). These are without a doubt the best books I've ever read. These books are written so well. I don't have to go back and re-read a couple pages to understand what just happened. I come away feeling so good after reading these books. No violence, no sex, just good, clean stories about a wonderful town, realistic characters, and events that effect their lives. The story of the Potters was very touching. The spirital value is also appealing - makes me think as I'm reading because it sometimes hits home. Really makes me want to take a trip east to the Cape area. Please Thomas - we need more!!!

This is not a book that I found interesting, it is very much like every other heartbreak, moving on in life type of book. I thought because it was on sale I would try it but I still can not finish it, it doesn't hold my interest at all. If you like humdrum this is it.

This is a "comfort book." A nice change when I had been reading a lot of stories about serial killers! Also a book I'd feel comfortable recommending or giving to friends who are put off by crime novels and want something soothing.

Molly Willoughby and Officer Tucker Tulley, both familiar to Cape Light readers, each get their own story in this newest installment. Molly, a single mom, works hard to support her two preteen daughters. Her dream of having a better life and her own business seem impossible and out of reach. But her humor --and late night ice cream binges-- keep her afloat. Molly hasn't had a date in ages, then suddenly must choose between two men. There's Dr. Matthew Harding, recently widowed and starting over in town with his teenage daughter. And surprisingly, there's Molly's ex-husband Phil. Totally unreliable for years, Phil claims he's changed and wants a second chance as a father and husband. There's both humor and realistic moments as Molly tries to sort out her chaotic life. We see her grow, forgiving Phil and putting her own goals ahead of romance with either man. Eventually, she turns a new leaf and somehow, gets it all. The story of police officer Tucker Tulley and his step-brother Carl was also very moving and suspenseful. Carl returns to town after nearly twenty years, an ex-convict and a derelict. He collapses and Tucker finds him in a hospital. Struggling with unhappy memories and against the advice of family and friends, Tucker takes Carl in. The cantakerous Carl is ungrateful and difficult, and Tucker finds it's not that easy 'do good,' even if you want to. I enjoyed this Good Samaritan story as much, if not more, than than Molly's. Tucker and Molly's stories are very different, but the prevailing theme of people changing for the better tied the book together neatly with an upbeat note. Overall, a satisfying read with lots of action, insights and emotion.
