Rachel Goodman never thought she would return to Pilgrim Cove. The memories growing up there were very unpleasant. After thirteen years on her own, Rachel was an assistant principal at a school in Kansas. But when a tornado totally destroyed the school, it left her without a job. ...................................... ............................ .......... Lou Goodman, Rachel's father, convinced her to apply for a new position at her old school. Pilgrim Cove Regional High School has recently gotten back the standardized test scores and the results were horrible. Students' scores have taken a sharp nose dive within the last three years. Dr. Bennett and the school board is charging Rachel with improving the academic performance of the entire student body. All eyes will be on Rachel. If she succeeds, the position will become permanent. So Rachel prepares herself to face her past. ......................................... ......................... ................ Dr. Jack Levine is a marine biologist. While taking samples of Pilgrim Cove's ocean areas for a year, he will also hold a position as the science teacher. This makes Rachel his boss. They are quickly attracted to each other, but Jack does not follow rules or take advice, which will cause all sorts of problems. ......................................... ......................... ................ Bart Quinn rents the top apartment of Sea View House to Jack. It is perfect for both the man's jobs. Bart rents the bottom apartment to Rachel. Perfect for her to indulge in her favorite past time, swimming, and walking on the beach. ...................................... ............................ .......... The ROMEOs have seen two couples find true happiness while renting Sea View House. They have high hopes that the house will work its magic a third time. It has GOT to, because this time it is for one of their own! ......................................... ......................... ................ ***** First book in the Pilgrim Cove series is the story of Laura and Matt (The House on the Beach). Second book is the story of Shelley and Daniel (No Ordinary Summer). This time it is the story of Rachel and Jack! The first two stories were breathtaking and I love them still. Ending each and having to leave Pilgrim Cove broke my heart. The series is just so awe-inspiring to me.! When I learned a third book had been released, I actually let out a short, high-pitched, squeal in pleasure. ...................................... ............................ .......... Linda Barrett is an astonishing contemporary author! Even though the entire town of Pilgrim Cove seems to be secondary characters, the author manages to keep the focus on the two main characters and the obstacles they must, somehow, overcome. As the reader, I could easily believe the town and all its inhabitants were real. I came to feel as though I was a part of this close-knit town. This accomplishment is something all authors strive for, but few actually achieve. Linda Barrett is one of those few! Do NOT miss out on Pilgrim Cove! *****
