Holidays at Crescent Cove by Shelley Noble

From the acclaimed author of Beach Colors come two fabulous stories of holidays spent by the beautiful shore

Thanksgiving and Christmas are all about friends, family, and good food. But this year, the holidays will truly bring the residents of Crescent Cove home.

Thanksgiving At Crescent Cove

Amidst visions of turkey and pumpkin pie, sweet Grace is ready to greet Thanksgiving in a quiet celebration of home and heart. But things don't go according to plan. Her father—to whom she hasn't spoken in years—comes walking through the door, expecting a reunion and her help. And of course this is the exact moment her friend Jake has finally decided to make a declaration. Will the spirit of Thanksgiving be enough to help Grace accept her family and her friend's love?

Christmas At Crescent Cove

It's Christmas, and Bri never expected to find a handsome stranger sleeping in her barn. But she never expected to be living in Crescent Cove again with her two adopted daughters. Since 'tis the season to open your home to those in need, Bri decides to let David spend the holidays with her new family, and he gives her and the girls a precious gift—the true meaning of Christmas.

This would have been a terrific trilogy. Why did she choose to write two short stories and combine them in one? Left wanting more. . .

Ended abruptly - too short.

Enjoyed the book.

I found it very distracting that Sonny's last name was spelled differently (and, at one point, completely changed) throughout the story. Yikes! Overall, I agree with the other reviews. I loved Beach Colors, but these stories felt too rushed.

Shelley Noble has written a wonderful short story for the holidays. This story follows the characters from Beach Colors. We get to share Thanksgiving and Christmas with them. Synopsis: Grace has just pulled off a win to preserve the Crescent Cove boardwalk area for historical preservation. She and her friends go off to celebrate when a newspaper is left on the table revealing that days headline. A case from Grace’s past that affected both her legal career and her family appears in the paper. Now all of the sudden her father drops by with information about this case, but does Grace really want it? Or will this ruin her thanksgiving? The second story is about celebrating Christmas at Crescent Cove. Bri can’t wait to share her first Christmas with her newly adopted daughters. These daughters Lily and Mimi both came from China. Bri has had to learn about the Chinese culture to help her daughters adapt to their new surroundings. There is one aspect she wasn’t counting on a stranger that decides to share her barn for one night. The stranger David Henderson is there for one reason only to deliver a letter to Nick Preston brother of Luke. David believes he needs to deliver this letter personally. Will he find more than what he bargained for in Crescent Cove? My Thoughts: I actually enjoyed this one! I don’t often say this about Holiday novellas. I have not found them interesting in the past. This book left me wondering if we might see more of Bri’s and Grace’s story in the future? This novel is like the holidays at the beach. The plot for each story was great. The second story was better for me than the first one. The first one left me with wanting to know more about the outcome of the story. Overall a great holiday read this Christmas!

I was so looking forward to reading this book after reading Beach Colors. I enjoyed the supporting characters from Beach Colors wanted to find out how there stories played out. Well I found that out in this book, but it felt rushed and incomplete. It seemed like a lot wasleft out of the stories. It was unsatisfying.

The first book in this series was great. These novellas ending abruptly. It felt like there should have been more to each story.
