Joe Cosentino | 278 comments I’m thrilled to share my four 5-star release day reviews for COZZI COVE: STEPPING OUT (book 3 in my Cozzi Cove series) published by NineStar Press. Happy release day to me!

“But it’s not just about the Cozzi’s and the webs they weave, it’s also about the guests that check-in and check-out. But they never check out of our hearts. We as readers, remember every one of them – they are the real beauty of Cozzi Cove together with this author’s amazing talent – he makes these OTT characters stay with us, his characterization is just phenomenal and therefore great fun to read, I never chuckle as much as I do as when I’m reading a Cosentino.” Thank you Lorraine Lesar of Three Books Over the Rainbow for the terrific five-star review of the third Cozzi Cove novel (NineStar Press)!

“With love, romance and the big reveal of so many secrets, COZZI COVE: STEPPING OUT is perhaps the most important novel in the series so far. With so many of the recurring characters getting a huge chunk of the storytelling time, I couldn't have asked for a better exploration of the Cozzi family and their chaotic summers at Cozzi Cove. Thanks to the perfect ending, I really hadn't expected there to be more...but, YES! There is an excerpt at the end for the next book. And I couldn't be more thrilled!” Thank you Elaine White of Divine Magazine for the wonderful five-star review of the third Cozzi Cove novel (NineStar Press)!

“The surprise of the whole book though is Tommy finally finding who he has been looking for, and the story behind the love found and lost and then found again definitely blew me away….a great read” Thank you Natosha of Gay Book Reviews for your great five-star review of COZZI COVE: STEPPING OUT, the third Cozzi Cove novel (NineStar Press)! Cozzi Cove: New Beginnings (book 4) releases on March 27!

“Spending a week in the sun with the permanent and transitory residents of Cozzi Cove makes for a superb, unputdownable, read. There are laugh out loud moments, lots of chuckles, some very heartwarming as well as heart wrenching moments, lots of gorgeous men and women, love, lust and even some tears. Joe Cosentino has a brilliantly unique sense of humour, and a masterful way of writing stories containing farce, larger than life men and women, and often over the top characters you’ll fall in love with. For all that his characters come across as completely relatable and realistic. His books are one of a kind and utterly addictive. I have yet to read a Joe Cosentino book that was less than 5 stars, and this book is no exception. Do yourself a favour and grab this book with both hands. I guarantee you’ll be very glad you did.” Thank you Janice Birnie of Divine Magazine for the lovely 5-star review of COZZI COVE: STEPPING OUT (Cozzi Cove book 3)!

Joe Cosentino | 278 comments Thank you Optimumm for the rave review of Cozzi Cove: Stepping Out, book three in my popular Cozzi Cove series: “The stories of Cal and Michael, George and Aaron, and Taylor and Carla are brilliant and are cleverly described alongside those of the guests. I loved this book, and the wonderful feel good factor it evoked. For me, it’s the best of the series so far. The characters are, again, perfect for the stories that unwind slowly and are then wound up again into ideal conclusions. The ending ties up all the residents and guests’ stories but leaves enough open for more. Cozzi Cove, where dreams really do come true.” /

Joe Cosentino | 278 comments “Cosentino never fails me. Picking up this book, even though it’s been nearly a year since I’ve read them last, was like coming home for Christmas. Everything just clicked….This entire series is a big rollercoaster and Stepping Out in particular unveiled a lot of secrets. If you’re a fan of the series and liked the other two books, I would highly recommend this one. In my opinion, it’s probably the best of the series so far.” Thank you Jordan of Alpha Book Club for the rave review of Cozzi Cove: Stepping Out,” the third Cozzi Cove novel, published by NineStar Press. I’m looking forward to your review of Cozzi Cove: New Beginnings, book four!
