Escape to Osprey Cove by Luisa Marietta Gold
Catherine is a nice girl, infatuated by the story of how her grandfather Gregstone turning a broken down truck,a handmade tool belt and himself the only employee into a multi-million dollar construction business through hard work. Unfortunately she’d met Doug at a young age, felt sorry for his hard luck story of growing up with a single mum and nothing he ever wanted that the other kids had, no matter how hard his mum worked. Doug heard her story of money, her parents dying in an accident leaving more money and assets to three children and he set out to become part of that wealthy family, no matter that he didn’t love hardworking sweet Catherine. A creepier husband he couldn’t have been if he’d tried.
Escape to Osprey Cove is about a business deal about to go bad that Catherine worked on to turn it around, loving Osprey Cove where the client took her to explain his business. The water, boat, scenery and client’s ideals of getting young people away from computers and into the outdoors having fun and adventures matched her own sense of nature. Catherine hoped to make Alex’s dreams come true so that a generation would learn to leave their computer gear and create a healthy lifestyle of fitness in the outdoors as well. She enjoyed herself so much that it wasn’t hard for Catherine and client Alex to get along in work as they played on the water.
A great book that kept my interest as the story unfolds. I want to read the next book as well. I became so invested in the characters I liked that I truly want to learn more! Even when disliking Doug I thoroughly enjoyed this well written ebook. I bought it and the review is my own.

The first 20% of this book was full of 'padding'. Just went on and on. It also made the main character,Catherine, appear to be a saint. Too perfect. The storyline is different..in a good way, if you can get past the waffling.

Don’t bother, first episode of a rambling story, does not come to a conclusion.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 July 2019
Don’t bother even if it’s free. Stilted writing, made up of short sentences, very clunky. One never finds out what Doug found in the Corvette because this book finishes with a ‘cliffhanger’ if something so pedestrian can be said to have a cliffhanger. The mystery to me is why I bothered to finish it. How this book got so many good reviews is also a mystery.

Very childish in the writing and storyline.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 June 2020
I’m so glad that this was offered free as I found it very childish and twee in the writing and so much so that I couldn’t be bothered to finish it, as I don’t think I missed anything as the story was basically non existent.
Very enjoyableReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 December 2018
Intriguing, heartwarming and one wants to know how the life of the people develops - I have bought the whole serie and can't wait to see what is happening next.

Not for me.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 August 2019
Sorry couldn't work up any enthusiasm to continue reading and abandoned this book about a quarter of the way in.
