Pilgrim Cove…where love can be as powerful as the ocean next door. 

On the surface, Pilgrim Cove seems like any other coastal town. Picturesque and peaceful with long stretches of unspoiled beach, fresh ocean breezes and the sense of time passing slowly. 


…only in Pilgrim Cove live a group of friends called the ROMEOs whose sole aim to take care of the town. 
…only in Pilgrim Cove stands a unique house right on the beach. Sea View House. A very special place…some say magical…to the people who reside there each season. 
…and only in Pilgrim Cove, are strangers welcomed while everyone else takes a front row seat as a love story unfolds.

The House on the Beach is the first of the four-book Pilgrim Cove series.

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?

    By Aedriftboy
    What a beautiful heartwarming story of strength, human nature and love. Love in a small town setting, adorable kids, wonderful nosy town folk and two very strong characters in need of love. Love those ROMEOs. No cliffhangers, a HEA ending and an enjoyable read.

    A single dad raising 2 young sons after his wife’s death from ovarian cancer. A woman needing time by the Atlantic Ocean to heal body & spirit after her breast cancer battle followed immediately by her mother’s illness & death. Romance is the absolute last thing either wants yet they can’t stop thinking of each other & can’t stay away. Not to mention that everyone in this small beach community is trying hard to get them together. This is a very sweet book with VERY discreet love scenes, which I appreciate. I definitely recommend this book.

    Wow! Another lovely story which artfully captured a sweet love story, summer memories of the beach and the timely exploration of those woman who suffer the trauma of breast cancer. Sensitive and perceptive writing interwoven with gentle humour. Bravo!
  • A page turner!!!

    I had to read straight through to get to the end quickly. The author handled the subject quite well as well as wove a loving story about a family of men not realizing they needed a mom figure. Highly recommend!!!

    My Mom had breast cancer so I connected with Laura. Not only was the story line honest but the character development was real. The deepening emotional connection between the characters was believable and the plot moved along apace. Usually I just read the book and move on to the next one as there isn’t much that is worth the time it takes to review. But this is a story that will keep you thinking about it for a good long while. And whoever proofread it got everything correct.
