THE HOUSE ON THE BEACH

A Pilgrim Cove novel - Book 1

Laura McCloud has a bright future but needs a place to pick up the pieces of her life and career after losing her mom, her boyfriend and surviving a battle with breast cancer. A script that doesn’t play well for a single woman. Happy childhood summers in Pilgrim Cove pull her back to town and a stay in Sea View House.

Matthew Parker, his two young sons and his dad have shared a home since both men were widowed several years ago. And now, no women are needed in the Parker domain. But when Matt meets Laura, he discovers that his home might be missing something vital—a woman’s love.

Can these two determined people figure out what’s important and take a chance on a new beginning?

NO ORDINARY SUMMER

A Pilgrim Cove novel - Book 2

Fun is what Shelley Anderson is trying to provide for her two young children when she rents the first floor of Sea View House a year after a painful divorce. The kids haven’t been adjusting well, and the house is perfect.

She’s not sure about perfection, however, after she meets Daniel Stone, the man who’s renting the top floor of the house. A man who’s trying to find his balance after losing his wife. Her neighbor definitely wants to be left alone. He’s less than thrilled by the instant rapport between his beautiful golden retriever and her two active kids. And he’s definitely shaken by the rapport that springs up between himself and Shelley.

When Shelley’s ex shows up, threatening to take the kids, Shelley must protect her little family while also protecting her budding happiness with Dan.

With their painful pasts, will Shelley and Daniel find the courage to love again? It’s a question only they can answer.

***** 5 Stars!: CataRomance Reviews Talented Linda Barrett has superbly written another exceptionally gratifying story, NO ORDINARY SUMMER. After the first book, THE HOUSE ON THE BEACH, I was hooked and couldn't wait to return to Pilgrim Cove ... Daniel is one of my all time favorite heroes because he is intelligent, intuitive and intriguing ... Shelley is a formidable woman with a mind of her own ... I lost myself in the story...NO ORDINARY SUMMER is no ordinary summer read and I am happily adding this book to my 'to be read again and again' shelf.

RELUCTANT HOUSEMATES

A Pilgrim Cove novel - Book 3

Pilgrim Cove native Rachel Goodman has come home for one good reason: to prove to the town and her family that she’s not a loser. She’d graduated from high school—barely—and gone to college on a swimming scholarship. And now the swimming jock is the new assistant principal for academic studies at Pilgrim Cove High. Her uphill battle to win over the teachers and improve test scores might have gone well except….

Marine biologist Jack Levine has a woman in every port and his boat, The Wanderer, is his most prized possession. When he winds up teaching science in Pilgrim Cove, he finds that he likes the small town very much. So what if he doesn’t follow the rules at school? So what if his boss finds him difficult to work with? As for being housemates at Sea View House…? Well, that’s nearly impossible. Except for the sparks that fly whenever he and Rachel are together.

And then Jack and his boat go missing…

5 ***** Stars RELUCTANT HOUSEMATES is a breathtaking page turner that will scoop you right up and carry you to a most pleasing ending. It is a brilliant stand-alone read, but if you haven't read any of the other books in the Pilgrim Cove series, then you must get them also because you are in for a treat.

Donna Zapf, CataRomance Reviews

5 ***** Stars Linda Barrett is an astonishing contemporary author!...I could easily believe the town and all its inhabitants were real. I came to feel I was 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!

THE DAUGHTER HE NEVER KNEW

A Pilgrim Cove novel - Book 4

After his twin brother died on the night of their senior prom, Jason Parker disappeared from Pilgrim Cove. Nine years later he returns in order to make peace with his family—with Lila Sullivan, the woman he can’t forget—and with himself. But nothing and no one is the same as he remembers. Certainly not his family. Not Lila, with her fiancé and a child. Not even his old house. Can a wanderer ever find home again? Do second chances really exist?

Lila wants no part of this man who owned her heart years ago but vanished when she needed him most. His music ignites her emotions, but can she trust him not to break her heart again? Worse still, can she trust him not to break their daughter’s heart?

A Perfect 10! THE DAUGHTER HE NEVER KNEW is a story that grabs your heart from the beginning and doesn't let go. With well-developed characters that have you experiencing their emotions and realistic dialogue---a Perfect 10. The secondary characters add warmth and humor. This is the fourth book in the Pilgrim Cove series and can stand on its own, but readers will want to enjoy the other wonderful stories of Pilgrim Cove that Linda Barrett has created. For an emotion driven story that is hard to put down, I highly recommend THE DAUGHTER HE NEVER KNEW.

Joyce Koehl, Romance Reviews Today

5 Stars ***** Once again, Sea View House in Pilgrim Cove is working its magic. The tale of Lila and Jason...was worth the wait! This is the most intense, most joyful and most emotional episode of the series thus far. Every book in the "Pilgrim Cove" series sits on my "Keeper" shelf, never to be loaned out. Mine! Mine! Mine! And Linda Barrett...don't stop writing about this town and its residents....
