After gaining custody of his younger brother, Boone Jensen moves to a unique LGBT community on the coast of Maine. There, he hopes to find work as a stonemason, heal his broken heart and give his brother a safe place to call home.
Life was good in New York City for chef Dante Madia, until his business partner betrayed him. Determined to trust only himself, Dante risks everything on a new restaurant venture in a small fishing village built on acceptance.
Neither man is looking for love, but in a town like Lobster Cove, secret dreams have the ability to become realities.
I enjoyed Carol Lynne’s start to her spinoff series Lobster Cove in Welcome to Lobster Cove. Maine’s version of Cattle Valley, Lobster Cove is a newly formed gay-friendly town with welcoming characters.
Two men starting over, Dante and Boone relocate to Lobster Cove for different reasons. Both characters were likeable, but I have to admit that I fell in love with Laddie, Boone’s down syndrome teenage brother who he is raising since their mother died. Laddie was larger than life, warm and precocious. He stole the show.
Boone and Dante’s relationship went from zero to sixty in a few short pages with a bit of angst and hesitation on Dante’s part. I do believe that Ms. Lynne did a nice introduction to her new series—friendly characters, loving men and a safe haven.
