Ok, first I would like to say for all of those who hate his paintings, and that fact that he is making millions of dollars off of them, this book is not for you. He writes with the same charm and splendor that he uses in his paintings. For those of you who love his paintings the rest of this rewview is for you, for you will love this book!! Yes it is charming and romantic and ok, a little predictable. But that's ok. Enter the Beautiful little world of Cape Light where you are surrounded by good people, beautiful scenery, and characters like Sam Morgan, that you just can't help falling in love with. You know tall muscular, and extremly handsome and lets not forget the nicest guy to ever exist in fiction. Some will call this book sappy, but if you are like me living in world full of disappointments, and relationships that NEVER EVER work out. With dishonest guys at every turn. It is nice to escape that maddness, and step into a world like Cape Light, though they have their disapointments everything always works its way out. You will be pleasntly delighted. Enjoy. Now on to book two for me!!

This is an excellent series that depicts the characters in a small New England seaside town. The characters are alive and interactive. I have enjoyed each book in the series and look forward to more.

His books describe this little town and the people who live there as well as his paintings describe the cottages and the seashores, all with the wonderful light.

I first heard about this book, recommended on QVC. Of course, Thomas Kincaid's name is what attracted me. Sure, we all know he is one of the best painters of modern times, so I was very curious to see if his writing could prove as pretty as his idyllic paintings. Well! I was not only *not* disappointed, but thoroughly sated by this book. It slaked in me a deep thirst to know more about the fascinating mind of Thomas Kincaid. Who better than the Master of Light, with his outstanding success--proving his intuition for the Real America, a better America--to reveal this "simpler life" and its pleasures? "The most collected living artist" is destined to be a success in more than one medium. Life is short, and it's far better and pleasant to spend some precious hours reading Thomas Kincade's moving visions than wasting time on tedious and outdated 'classics' like Tolstoy, Dickens, and Hemingway, who, unlike Kincade, pollute their 'art' with vulgarity. Thomas Kincade is surely not just the Painter of Light, but a true Master of Light. Thanks to Katherine Spencer and Thomas Kincaid for teaming up and, like the Cape Light lighthouse, casting forth this beacon of light. So simple, so pretty! Read it, and you, too, will feel simpler.

I am so glad that I have found this lovely series of books! It is so refreshing to read some great fiction without tons of sex, violence and/or language filling the pages. These are gripping characters who keep the story alive without resorting to all of the 'junk' that a lot of today's authors turn to. I would not be concerned one bit if my small children read this book - it's just a good wholesome read with a little bit of God and faith thrown in (without shoving the Gospel down your throat).

Thomas Kinkade, the famous painter, changes genres as he writes his first novel with Katherine Spencer. This is the story of a small New England town where Jessica Warwick has returned to care for her mother, who is a stroke victim. Jessica's mother, Lillian, was one the social leader in this small town, but a scandal involving Jessica's father has reduced Lillian to a bitter, complaining old woman. Her snobbery intact, Lillian disapproves of her daughter dating Sam who is a local carpenter and handyman. Years earlier, she had disapproved of her other daughter Emily's marriage to a man whom Lillian considered to be her social inferior. Emily's husband died and she returned to Cape Light with an uncomfortable secret. Jessica fights her own social prejudices and resisists Sam's efforts to build a closer relationship with him. This book is similar to those of the Mitford series, but the authors do not have Jan Karon's ability to sketch characters and make them instantly likeable. There are many loose ends left in the lives of the townspeople, obviously leaving the door wide open for a continuing series. This is a pleasant read, but not a literary masterpiece.

This is a book that is VERY hard to put down! I also did NOT see Cape Light as a Bible-thumping town; the pastor is a kind, warm, non-judgmental man who has problems just like members of his congregation do. Reverend Ben's wife is sweet and caring; her battle with depression gives her more depth and makes her easier to relate to, as she is not really a main character in the book. Emily, the mayor of Cape Light, seems strong, capable, dedicated, patient, compassionate... almost like a too-perfect painting that has only one set meaning to it. Until we get to know her heart and thoughts and see that Emily has constructed a seemingly-perfect facade to mask her loneliness and regrets for the past. She doesn't realize that part of the past has come looking for her.
Emily's sister, Jessica, doesn't expect to make Cape Light her home: it's just a temporary situation for her while she's helping her sister take care of their mother, almost 99% rotten Lillian. Again - Kinkade uses his paint strokes magically to reveal something sparkly light about this seemingly never happy, sour-faced woman that a stranger to the little town manages to view a peek of. But Jessica never planned to meet someone like Sam, who seems to have a hold on her heart from the very start, though she may not realize it in time... even when the answer seems to stare her in the face, it may be too late to make amends. There are many disasters/painful problems or just plain messes that occur in the book, and what Sam says in the middle of the first mess (he is putting in a window for Jessica in her office at work and there is plaster dust all over the place) seems to ring true through the whole book: It'll get worse before it gets better!
