Reviews The Cottages on Silver Beach

  • Debra
    Although this book is number eight in a series, it worked very well as a standalone novel for me. I really did not feel as if I was missing any information or any backstory on any of the characters. This book also works as a great book for summer reading! Obviously this book is a romance but it also contains a mystery as well.Not only does Megan Hamilton own the Cottages on Silver beach but she also lives in one of them as well. Living on the pre...

    3.5 StarsElliot Bailey is back home in Haven Point after a case left him injured and in hot water with the higher ups at FBI. He chooses to rent a lakeside cottage on Silver Beach instead of staying with his family, so he might have peace and rest, and finish his latest crime novel. Elliot blanks out on the fact that Megan Hamilton might be close since she owns the inn until he figures out she’s in the cottage right next door. He’s always fou...

    This is eighth in the Haven Point series and characters from the other books are strewn about like lawn darts after an explosion in a lawn dart factory. You don't really need to have read those to get the full impact of this story, but it's nice knowing the background (particularly with Elliot's mother). Not as interesting as I think Thayne meant it to be, Elliot and Megan take a jaunt into Hope's Crossing in this story, too, so we see a bunch of...

    Fans of both Haven Point as well as the Hope’s Crossing series will appreciate THE COTTAGES ON SILVER BEACH, the latest contemporary small-town romance novel by the gifted RaeAnne Thayne. It’s no secret that I love RaeAnne’s style. That doesn’t mean that I love all her books equally, but I appreciate the talent she has for making relationships work, no matter the obstacles. This gift illustrates hope, dreams coming true, and working toget...

    Despite the fact that the plot of this book was not at all what I expected based upon the blurb…it was another RaeAnne Thayne winner.Megan manages her family’s Inn while moonlighting as a Photographer and Elliot is an FBI Agent who moonlights as a True Crime writer (Yum!). They sound like opposites with absolutely nothing in common…but as the story continues we learn about just how connected these two really are.A cold case involving Megan...

    With the the scent of pine and spruce and the picture of lake and mountains in my imagination as I read the first chapters of The Cottages on Silver Beach, I was hooked into another small town contemporary romance. I'd enjoyed the previous couple of books in the Haven Point series and so it was with anticipation I read into this story.I liked very much Elliot Bailey the wounded FBI hero, who has carried all the expectations on his shoulders of be...
  • Amy
    This is the eighth book in the Haven Point series, I’ve only read the last few, Serenity Harbor and Sugar Pine Trail. While they’re all set in the same world and you do get to briefly revisit characters from previous installments it’s definitely not necessary to read them in order, they stand just fine on their own. I always regret not starting at the first book though because these books are a true delight.This book focuses on Megan and El...

    3-1/2 starsAnother satisfying entry in the Haven Point series. There were two reasons I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as some of the others in the series:1) I didn't feel we got to know Megan and Elliot as well as characters in other books, so things felt a little forced at times. A lot of their current story seems based on things we're told happened in the past, which is fine, but it kept me from feeling a real connection between the two ...
  • Lily (Night Owl Book Cafe)
    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Elliot Bailey has always had some sort of feelings for Megan Hamilton, but wasn't unable to do anything about it due to the fact that he came home one day to her dating her brother. Now, Megan Hamilton is not his biggest fan when Elliot turned his back on her family when her brother's wife went mis...
  • Marjorie
    This new addition to the Haven Point, Idaho series, a romance with a mystery that interferes with Megan Hamilton and Elliot Bailey getting involved as a couple, was a great story. Thoughtfully written, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Megan, as well as her brother, Luke, and his two young children, are struggling to move on after Luke’s wife, Elizabeth, went missing. Megan, whose heart is in her talent as a photographer, owns and runs the Inn and cotta...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsSee the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comA gorgeous setting. Engaging characters. A slow burn, sweet & lovely romance. What more could you ask of a contemporary romance, right? How about an intriguing plot based on a past emotional betrayal stemming from a family disappearance?As everyone has probably figured out by now, RaeAnne Thayne is one of my favorite authors and I tend to go all fangirl about her work. So I’ll tr...
  • Siobhan
    The Cottages on Silver Beach is the eighth book in RaeAnne Thyne’s Haven Point series, and it’s another wonderful addition to the series. In fact, it has left me extremely eager for book nine – there is such build up for Season of Wonder, and I really cannot wait to dive into it.The Haven Point series builds upon each prior book, introducing us to more and more of the characters, allowing us to watch the stories unfold as we get to know eac...
  • Kristen
    In RaeAnne Thayne's The Cottages of Silver Beach, the 8th installment in the Haven Point contemporary romance series, this sweet love story would enchant you with a heart-warming plot line. For Megan Hamilton, she had been the innkeeper of her family's inn in Haven Point, Idaho, and had put her dreams on hold twice. First she had to help take care of her grandmother before she had died, and then with her sister-in-law's disappearance seven years ...

    I really enjoy the communities Rae Ann Thayne creates. Her characters feel like people I might know and really like.

    Elliott is back in Haven Point, staying in a cottage right next to Megan. Megan used to date Elliott’s brother before he was killed. Megan’s brother is the main suspect in his wife’s disappearance. Elliott starts looking into the police investigation, Megan doesn’t know whether to trust Elliott. This book has a great story with mystery, romance and family relationships
  • Grace {Rebel Mommy Book Blog}
    I really do enjoy the Haven Point series. This installment was no different for me. I enjoyed Megan and Elliot’s story. They had that weird love-hate thing going on. Neither of them realized how the other felt. Also having some familiar faces pop up is always nice. As always the setting of the small town is great. Plus here they both had these darling cottages on the lake (see name of book lol) and it made me want to go on vacation there. I can...
  • Cathy
    Not my favourite of the series by a long shot, but I still enjoyed it reasonably. I've come to the realisation that Thayne is perhaps incapable of writing a book I truly dislike. (Though, apparently, Luke and Elizabeth's story will feature in one of the next books and I'm curious to see how she will sell me on those two. Because, I'm sorry, I just don't see that happening with what we learned in this book.)Also, this book's summary is fairly misl...
  • Ann
    I liked this story with Elliot and Megan finally getting their chance for love. Megan rents him a cottage because she need the business but she's not happy he's coming back and stirring up so many unhappy memories. Elliot needs a place to heal from a gun shot wound and think about his career with the FBI. I think I found Megan's brother's story a little more interesting than Megans is the reason I didn't love this story. This is book 8 in the Hav...
  • Lisa
    I think I may have enjoyed this more if I had read it rather than listened to the audio. The narration distracted me from the story. I often felt the main character was talking or arguing with herself, since there was no distinction from her voice and that of the male lead.
  • Sylvia
    I loved this book!! Great story!! Can't wait for the next book in the series to release!! Love this author's books!!
  • Cecelia Kelsey
    All I could think when I finished the book was WOW! It just had me on the first page and I resented when I had to stop to eat or sleep! Megan watched with mixed emotions when she saw that it was Elliot Bailey moving into the cottage next door. She knew he was coming and where he was staying because she had taken the online reservation. Elliot believed her brother, Luke, guilty in his wife's disappearance. She had absolute faith that he did not.Re...
  • Darcy
    There was something about this book, it's sort of a quiet romance. For much of the book it doesn't seem like anything is happening, yet you know that isn't true. Elliott and Megan talk and there is a lot to talk about, but they don't talk about the important thing, how each had a crush at the other. When it finally came out I was glad that they realized what the other thought.I also find myself intrigued by Megan's brother and what happened to hi...
  • Gale
    I know when I pick up a RaeAnne Thayne book that I am going to love the story. The Cottages on Silver Beach does it (again) for me! My take on the background of the story (and I have read all the Haven Point books but this is from a standalone point of view) is that Elliot Bailey is severely misunderstood – by his family, by his friends, and by just about everyone who has known or currently knows him. He “goes back home” to Haven Point, and...
  • Julie M.
    I loved stepping into RaeAnne Thayne's world. This is currently the eighth book in the Haven Point series. If you are familiar with the series, or the Hope's Crossing series, readers will find many of the characters from previous novels. If you aren't familiar with either series, it's absolutely fine, this can be read as a standalone. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the novel, is the close community that exists in the small town of Haven Poi...
  • Books and Spoons
    The Haven Point series has become one of those saga's that I get excited just knowing there is a book from it waiting for me at my TBR list. The stories are well written with a smooth flow and are filled with intriguing characters, living in the small town, love for family and friends, and the sweetest, kindest, most tender, and clean romance stories that always manages to make me smile and sigh. The Cottages on Silver Beach is an uplifting story...

    Reviewed for THE COTTAGES ON SILVER BEACH by RaeAnne Thayne is the eighth book in the Haven Point series. It works well as a standalone novel if you haven’t read the others in the series. I guarantee, however, that after reading this book, you will want to go back to read the others. Elliot Bailey is an FBI agent who moonlights as a writer. After an injury has him sidelined with the FBI, he returns to his hometown to ...
  • Ami
    It's not bad ... but The Cottages on Silver Beach , Thayne's eight novel in her Haven Point series is not my favorite. The biggest problems for me are twofold. First, the romance is insipid. Second, I'm more interested in the 'mystery' of Megan's missing (presumed murdered, but no body has been found) sister-in-law.Neither Elliott nor Megan are interesting character for me. I struggled to understand Elliott's emotionally repressed character. His...

    Megan Hamilton thought her life was perfect. She was part owner of the family inn and loved her photography. She also rented out the inns cottages. She was living in one of them until the inn is rebuilt from the fire. She has just rented the cottage beside hers to Elliott Bailey. When they were growing up Megan's brother Luke and Elliot were best friends. Then Luke's wife disappeared seven years ago. Their marriage had been rocky and Elizabeth su...

    We meet the last Bailey in this return to Haven Point. Elliott has been wounded in his job as an FBI agent and returned home to recuperate and finish his novel. Megan owns the inn and cottages where Elliott is staying. Their road to romance was different and filled with the potholes of a cloud hanging over her brother's life. I also found Megan a difficult character to like. All in all it was a fun return to Haven Point and can't wait to see what...

    This is a great new addition to the Haven Point series.In this book, we have two people who have been circling each other for a very long time. Megan Hamilton is dealing with a lot of issues from her photography career, running her family inn, and her brother's missing wife.Elliot Bailey is dealing with a bullet wound to his shoulder from his work in the FBI, suspension from the FBI, a book deadline, and digging into an ex-friend's missing wife.T...
