Thomas Kinkade/ Katherine Spencer…Cape Light Series

I decided to do a Review on all of the Cape Light Series since there are so many already. I had so much fun reading these books! Hope you enjoy the review. I also list some places you can purchase them at the end of the post

I first heard about this series through Crossings Book Club. The pictures on the book cover are enough to make me purchase the book. Of course you would need to like Kinkade’s paintings to say that!

The series takes you to a little seaside town of Cape Light, where everyone knows everyone,  neighbors help neighbors, it’s just a likeable town with likeable people…….and then there’s  Lillian. Lillian is the mother of Emily the Mayor or Cape Light, and Jessica, who has returned to help take care of an ailing mother. There’s always a Lillian in all little towns, and Cape Light really needs this character to spice up the book a little. It all can’t be perfect!

You can’t help but fall in love with the character in the series. There’s Emily the town Mayor and her sister Jessica who can never please their mother.  And of course there is Sam Moore, the drop dead gorgeous handyman that has an eye on Jessica. Is she too high class for him? And there is the Mayor’s secret……will people forgive her when they find out about her past? And there’s Lucy and Charley, The Potters, Molly, Rev. Ben and wife Carolyn, Dan, and more that have lived in Cape Light most are all of their lives.

Along with the old time characters, Kinkade and Spencer continually brought in new characters throughout the series that added to the town of Cape Light. Some didn’t stay so long, others fell in love, married and made their home there. The authors just have a way of keeping the story moving and interesting in each book. I love all of them! They are must keeps for me, either to lend out or read again if the notion hits me!

If you are looking for a nice comforting, relaxing, calming read…..these books are for you. Some of the story lines might be predictable, but ok, we can stand that too!

One of the best things about this series is, it shows that books can be awesome reads without the violence, sex, crime, and craving material things. I like the way that they authors show that our relationship with God is the most important thing. And that even though life doesn’t always go the way we think it should, we can depend on God to get us through.

If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend them. They are great reads as the Christmas Season begins. Just calms you down a bit during  the rush and hassle.

    I love TK paintings, and have one of his prints in my living room–my husband bought it for me when he was working 3 jobs! We heard Mr. Kinkade speak at the unveiling of one of his original works in the 1980’s. He is a gracious, gifted, godly man.

    I’ve seen this series but not read it. It sounds like a lovely vacation! Thanks for the review.

    You will have to get the books and read them…..I’ve actually read them twice. I had the flu/broncutis/pneumonia for 3 weeks in Nov….and I read those while I was sick….took my mind off of myself! You feel like you are in one of his paintings when you are reading the books.
    How awesome that you heard him speak. I have 4 of his prints…..3 christmas ones. My mom gave them to me for 4 different Christmases. We lost her in Sept, so I will always cherish my prints!
    Thanks for your comment. I will be reviewing more books…so check back, and I would love for you to follow my blog too!
