New Beginnings by Joe Cosentino


Welcome back to the romantic and magical place called Cozzi Cove, seven guest bungalows on the New Jersey Shore.

This summer, Cal and his new husband, Michael, along with sister, Taylor, and her wife, Carla, prepare for the first in the next generation of Cozzis. To add to the action: Cal finds his great-grandfather’s diary, exposing a shocking surprise; Michael and Taylor weigh new job opportunities that could take them far away from Cozzi Cove; red-letter Christian and new houseboy, Billy Dean, gets his wish when meeting Jesus and John at the cove; summer guest, Nijad, can’t decide which sibling he prefers—Annabel or Andrew; and Jonathan, an occult enthusiast, encounters a sexy vampire.

As usual, nothing is as it seems when romance blossoms once again at Cozzi Cove. What secrets, mysteries, and passions lie waiting to unfold? Find out in Book Four of the Cozzi Cove series.

Ruthie☆☆☆
This is the fourth book in the series – and I really would suggest that you need to read them in order, or you would be missing out on a large part of the underlying story. I am assuming you have in my review.

We left the three Cozzi siblings at their joint weddings in the last installment, and now we see them embark on their new lives together (if Carla can persuade Taylor to ever be home!). The main focus is on Cal and Michael, as a baby is on the way, and Michael is unsure of his place in Cozzi. I loved sharing Cal's great-grandfather's story through the found journal and especially the final revelation.

Another group of zany guests come to stay in the holiday homes and let us watch as their particular brand of crazy results in love and romance in the most unexpected ways. It is funny to see what guests Mr. Cosentino can conjour up – and fascinating to watch them in the context of the Cozzi family dramas happening in bungalow one. This group has a very interesting mix – and now that Connor has found true love, we have a new houseboy too.

This is a soap opera like series, which it is impossible not to enjoy, but I prefer the family story to the guests' if I am honest.
