"Cozzi Cove: Bouncing Back is the very finest in literary fiction with a romance theme, yet it's more than just that--it's about human connections and empathy and finding a way out of the fear and inertia faced by so many. It's also about courage and strength, about respect and coming to terms with all that life has to offer, and it's about letting go. I loved this book and look forward to the next in the series. This is a highly recommended read, well-deserving of Five Stars." -GGR Reviews
"I loved this story. It carries you through the full range of emotions, from joy to sadness, from happiness to anger. The characters are beautifully written....I look forward to a return visit to the Cove." -TBR Pile
"In true Joe Cosentino style, this book is packed full of drama! This cast of characters will have you laughing out loud one minute before ripping your heart out the next." -Joyfully Jay
"Cosentino tells the stories of the guests and owners at Cozzi Cove as separate yet intertwining stories, a delivery style that's genius. It's a bit like watching segments unfold in soap opera fashion....While the story is rife with the humor and lighthearted romance I've come to associate with Joe Cosentino, it also addresses several serious topics associated with the gay community: homophobia, stereotyping and coming out." -3 Chicks After Dark
