I loved Shelley Noble's debut novel "Beach Colors". That novel introduced some very interesting characters and I looked forward to reading about the community of Crescent Cove in subsequent novels. In Noble's follow up to "Beach Colors" she writes a holiday novel featuring two of the female characters from Beach Colors, Grace and Brianna.

Grace, is estranged from her family due to a prior court case. Her story takes place around Thanksgiving and we have her feeling lonely since it is the holidays

I love sweet holiday stories so I looked forward to reading this story. I first read Beach Colors followed by Stargazey Point and Stargazey Nights. I had read several book in between these stories. When I read the first few pages and found that I was reading about a carousel and the reopening of the boardwalk, I became confused with the town in Stargazey Point which had a dying town and the restoration of a carousel. I straightened this out in my mind and continued with the story about Thanksgiv ...more

Shelley Noble has written a wonderful short story for the holidays. This story follows the characters from Beach Colors. We get to share Thanksgiving and Christmas with them.

She and her friends go off to celebrate when a newspaper is left on the table revealing that days headline. A case from Grace’s past that affected both her legal career and her family appears in the paper. Now a

This book is made up of two novellas the first one for Thanksgiving and the second for Christmas then in the back is chapters from her other books to give you a 'sneak peek' at them.

I started reading the Thanksgiving story and just simply couldn't 'get into it' so I didn't finish it.

But the Christmas story was very well written. I would give it a 4 star actually and wouldn't mind reading it every year. I'm not sure how many books are in this series but you're not lost if you read this book and

I was looking for Christmas stories, and found this free book. The people in this book had all had hurtful things in their lives. Bri tells David, that Crescent Cove is a good place to settle, and to be healed. There are two little adopted girls from China. David had practiced Medicine in war zones, and he was burned out, and felt he had not made a difference. Bri had been in an accident, which left her with a limp, and ended her modeling career. The members who had returned to this town, all ha ...more

This is the first book I've read by Shelley Noble, and I'm not sure I like her style. It felt like the characters weren't defined enough and didn't develop fully throughout the story. I also felt as if the both the novellas had an ending that left something was as if the story wasn't finished. Maybe read it if you've got nothing else and a few hours to spare, but it wouldn't be at the top of my list.

I really liked the authors book Beach Colors, and had hoped for a sequel. This is sort of a sequel in that we revisit the characters and the story goes forward. Somehow both Grace and Bri's stories felt rushed and unfinished. I had really been hoping that the author would make this into a trilogy, but I wanted more than what I got.

Good book

I really enjoyed reading Crescent Cove Thanksgiving and Crescent Cove Christmas. These were two good books. This is the first time I have read books by Shelley Noble. I will be looking for more books written by her in the future.

Nice, cozy, holiday stories. I didn't realize this, but this novel is something of a sequel to Beach Colors, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary to read them in order.

This follows the wonderful book called Beach Colors. This could be as good, but it is not complete enough. It is about Thanksgiving with one of the characters from the other novel, and about Christmas with another. Both are great beginnings for a longer novel. I hope Shelley will write it.

Unfortunately I read this book before Beach Colors. I should have read it after but that didn't keep me from loving it. The characters are great.

A very nice sequel to "Beach Colors". It tied up the stories of the two best friends in two novellas.

As a quick trip back to Crescent Cove from Beach Colors this is a pleasant revisit to characters you wondered about. Why are covers so wrong?
