Publisher's Summary

Lia Brooks has a broken heart and a burning desire to escape New York City. She decides Provincetown is the perfect winter escape to find some peace and regroup. Alex McKinnon is the pastry chef and proprietor of The Flour Pot Cafe, in the heart of Provincetown. She loves owning her own business and the easy, no-strings-attached relationships that come with living in a gay tourist mecca.

When Lia appears in the cafe, the attraction is immediate. The passion between them promises more than a casual affair, but it's never that simple. Women from Alex's past pop up at the most inopportune times. Then there's Lia's ex, who brokers deals for a living and is unaccustomed to losing. Will Alex and Lia be able to overcome the roadblocks and find a happily ever after?

Disappointed

What disappointed you about Winter's Harbor?

The first few chapters were not bad, then boom in the bed they go. Really.

Has Winter's Harbor turned you off from other books in this genre?

No I lesbian books

Did Hollis Elizabeth do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Not bad, I have heard much worse

What character would you cut from Winter's Harbor?

very good romance

I loved the story, but the narrator didn't fit. The "southern" accent and "boston" accent attempts were laughable. but I really enjoyed the story.

Brilliant Depiction of Learning to Trust

Lia Brooks moves to Provincetown after a ten year relationship ends because of cheating. Betrayal has caused her to push other women away. Alex McKinnon ones the Flower Pot Cafe which becomes Lia’s favorite place to do her science writing. Can they find a way to a real romance or move past each other. Great performance. Recommend.

Couldn’t finish

I’m so disappointed. Usually this author is a decent, not stellar, read. This one is flat as a pancake. Cardboard cliche characters who have to ponder about femme and butch-ness. There is nothing that really sparks interest, no real story. Just a series of excuses to throw in sex scenes everywhere. Will be returning this one. I got a little over half through and gave up.

Cute story

Cute story, I enjoyed most of the story but there were times I wanted to strangle the MC's.
Narration was okay not the best but not the worst I have listened too.

Wow

Honestly this book was like watching paint dry. I tried to pick it back up every time I stopped, but finally I just gave up and returned it. Maybe if there was a different narrator it would’ve masked how dry the story is but that was not the case.

Horrible quality

It’s hard to get past the quality of this recording. It sounds like it’s coming from an old time radio or she’s speaking through the phone. And that voice is very robotic. The story is slow and the characters stupidly naive to the point that I wanted to toss my phone against the wall.
I finished it, but only because I’m working on my completion issues.

Narrator was...meh

I came across Aurora Rey by chance and I’m a fan of series’s, so I decided to give it a whirl. The story itself isn’t bad. At times overtly descriptive, but not descriptive enough for most “scenes”. I just felt like the picture couldn’t be painted, completely. Also the narrator lacked emotion. It sounded more like she was reading a book to Kindergarteners about flowers, not narrating a romance novel.
I’m going to continue with the series, because I enjoy witnessing the character growth(if any) and how their beings intertwine. Hopefully the next book doesn’t disappoint.

Great book!

I enjoyed the book thoroughly. The push and pull between the main characters was interesting to watch. I especially liked that they found each other in the end...total sap moment! The narrator was also decent as well. Her spinthrrn drawl was qyite interesting to say the least. In the end, great book!

good.

This book was good. The narrator was a bit mundane at the beginning with just one tone but after a few chapters got better. The story is good.
