Once again same as the 2nd one in this series, too much descriptive info. It wasn't as enjoyable as the 2nd novel, but ok. The H was too cute for words. The h got on my nerves. I did enjoy hearing about the progress of the past characters from the earlier books.
Lacking in plot, there really isn't a lot I'd recommend about this book. Based on two people whose friendship and interest in each other was previously established, it's really the agonizing stretching out point of whether Kerry wants to marry Cooper, give up her free as a bird single life & move permanently to Northern Australia. For some readers, this probably works - but I think I would have enjoyed a story based on the first part of their getting to know you instead. A lot of overthinkin [...]
I loved this book and I didn't want it to end. This is a story that isn't rushed, isn't filled with "secrets" or lies or "betrayals" that seem to be the vogue with too many romance genre writers.This one is about people connecting and coming together to truly understand each other.The characters are written so real and authentic I felt I truly knew them. They are multi-dimensional and people I'd call friends.The plot is also realistic as are the obstacles to the HEA.Ms Kauffman has outdone herse [...]

Kerry McCrae has come home temporarily for first one wedding, and the next, then to care for her beloved uncle Fergus while he recovers from a stroke, while staying even longer for the marriage of her last unwedded sibling. Known for her wanderlust, she has neglected to explain what kept her in Australia, atypically, for [...]
The wanderer in Kerry McCrae’s has always lived in her heart since she was a little girl. You see at the age of two, she the youngest, her two sisters and a brother, were all left orphaned when their parents died. So their grandfather was there to raise them. His cousin came from Ireland to help raise them knowing he would need a hand. That was their Uncle Fergus. He was a man of her same heart and spirit, a wanderer.He was always telling about his great adventures he had been on while he was [...]
I have just loved The Brides of Blueberry Cove series! Set in an idyllic, coastal town in Maine, the series has boasted a lovely group of characters that I have enjoyed reading about from the first book in The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove book. In this story, we finally get Kerry McCrae's storye youngest of the McCrae family and the only unmarried member of the family at this point. What we know about Kerry, is that she left home at 18 years to old to travel the world and satisfy her craving to s [...]
Starfish Moon is the by Donna Kauffman is book three of the Brides of Blueberry Cove but book six of the Blueberry Cove overall series. There is not a bad book in the entire lot, I have enjoyed each and every story. With that said Starfish Moon may be my all-time favorite with Kerry and her Australian cattleman, Cooper. No need to have read the others but each is unique and worth the time to savor and enjoy.The beginning of the story needs to catch my attention. This one with Cooper’s sudden a [...]
This novel is all in the details. There are lots about the scenery and the surroundings. Kauffman includes a great deal of narrative that focuses on background info, where the main characters were and what they did before now. This gave the novel a unique feel throughout.This is one of those novels that I had to become really invested in the characters to enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, the tale is well written and engaging. The plot was just atypical for Kauffman’s work. Once I was immersed in t [...]
I enjoyed this one very much! Kerry was such a unique character and that fact that Cooper would go through as much as he did to come after her was amazing.Kerry has always been filled with wanderlust. Never staying in any one place too long. That is until she landed on a cattle ranch in the Australian Outback. She had been there a year until she received the news that her sister was getting married and then her Uncle having a stroke brought her back to Blueberry Cove. Now another year has passed [...]
As with the other books in the Blueberry Cove series, Donna has written a wonderful story filled with humor and love. What makes this book even more special to me is that the hero, Cooper, is from Down Under. Australia is one of my most favorite countries so the hero being Australian and having the book set partially in Australia was definitely a bonus. I love the way Donna wrote their first meet-up when Cooper came to Blueberry Cove to look for Kerry. It was really interesting, albeit an awkwar [...]
I received this book in a giveaway. I really wanted to like it and be lost in the world of Blueberry Cove but it just did not click for me. I adore Donna Kauffman as an author but the characters in this novel appeared a little superficial. I loved Cooper Jax in the beginning and kept wishing that his character would become more dimensional but that never happened. Kerry was a similar story. I wanted to understand her and the reasons behind her actions but nothing she gave as an explanation felt [...]
I have fallen in love with Blueberry Cove. I wish that I could stay at the fabulous bed and breakfast, grab a drink at Fergus' bar and dine on some of Delias delectables. I am sooooo sad that this is the last in the series. I savored every page and thoroughly enjoyed the banter, Donna perfectly what it is to be in a smart, connected, sassy family where everyone has an opinion and every opinion is respected. It is lovely to be part of that close knit family for a few days. I enjoyed the incorpora [...]
I have to say that I am in love with Donna Kauffman. I've read so many of her series and I have never ever been disappointed. If you like cozy contemporary romance, you will love these books.Starfish Moon is the 3rd book in the Brides of Blueberry Cove series and the 6th book to take place in Blueberry Cove. This town is full of people that you'd love to know. One of the things I love about these books is they capture the small town feel, you don't get the sense that the the supporting cast is a [...]
I absolutely loved, loved, loved this story. The dialogue and interaction between Kerry and Cooper were so much fun to read. They were an adorable couple. They were playful and still so passionate. The sexual tension between them was so thick that once they got together it was explosive! There were also some very sweet moments in the story that just made me sigh and wish Cooper was real so I can claim him as my own. Such a wonderful story that it put a smile on my face long after I finished read [...]
I really couldn't finish this one. I was so excited to read it after the last book I read in The Brides of Blueberry Cove. Especially with the blurb that left me on a cliffhanger at the end of book #2, however this book lacks that spark that the blurb had me really anticipating. Cooper comes to town, Kerry is all 'back off', and then suddenly they're falling into bed together and she's mooning over him. What?! And the pirate queen and Hook bit was a bit hokey. I am so bummed but I really couldn' [...]
I have been impatiently waiting for Kerry's story and I was not disappointed! Kerry is the youngest of the four McCrae siblings and the wanderer. She met Cooper while she was in Australia and now he's in Blueberry Cove to tell Kerry that he loves her. Cooper and Kerry have great chemistry together and you will be rooting for them from the very beginning! Donna Kauffman does a great job with blending humor, love and family into one story. You don't want to miss this one!
Too slow movingI've enjoyed several of Donna Kaufman's other books, including the first two books in this series. This book however, was so slow-moving and repetitive that I couldn't finish it. I hate starting a book and not finishing it so I picked this up and put it down five or six times before deciding to stop for good. I just couldn't make any kind connection with the characters and finally, I just didn't really care what happened.
Truly Incredible series! I really felt like I was a member of the McCrae family and wanted to move to Blueberry Cove. Kerry and Cooper's story was SOOO Good - funny, sexy, heartwarming perfection. Character development was amazing - each one so unique!Great ending. So Sad to see the series come to an end - was a Favorite for me. Highly recommend it!!!

Starfish Moon is the final book in The Brides of Blueberry Cove series. This story takes place after the wedding of the oldest sister and just before the middle sister's nuptials. Kerry McCrae came home from Australia for Hannah's wedding and while she was home, her beloved Uncle Fergus suffered a stroke. She remained home to take care of him and run his pub. Now, she is still there for Fiona's wedding. Known for her wanderlust, she has only shared her adventures in Australia, her reason for sta [...]
Nice story. Heroine is the unattached sister of the earlier stories in the series. She's the one with wanderlust who's spent most of the past decade wandering the world and hasn't been home much, until she got a wedding invitation from her brother. Up until that point, the longest she spent anywhere was the cattle station in Northern Australia where she'd been working for the past year before going home to Maine. And then her Australian boss, the guy she'd been fantasizing about but never did an [...]
This is the third book in The Brides of Blueberry Cove Series and I was excited to read it and to follow the story of the third sister and see who she would fall for and how their romance would end. Like I have said before I love series and like when I read them and feel motived to get the next one and read it also. This is the last of The Brides but I believe there are two called The Grooms o Blueberry Cove so I will read those next.
Kerry and CooperAnother great book by this author. At times it dragged but still a good story. Love this author and plan to keep reading her books.
5 - "Feel free to pillage away." Stars!I seem to be having a brilliant run on books from the Kensington Publishing line recently, I think pretty much every ARC I have read and reviewed for them in the past couple of months has been a four or five star read for me, and Starfish Moon by Donna Kauffman is no exception.This is not the first book in the authors Brides of Blueberry Cove series, but it is my first read from this author. I didn’t struggle to read Kerry and Cooper’s story, but you do [...]
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.Kerry was a wanderer. The youngest of 4 kids, she started wandering all over staying just until the spirit moved her again. The longest she ever stayed anywhere was in Australia, where she stayed a year.She has never let herself get close because of the way she moves around but when she was in Australia it was different. She was very attracted to her boss, Cooper Jax and became close to his sister, brother and father. She never acted on any of [...]
I received a copy of this to read and review from NetGalley. This is the third book in the series. I have not read the others, but, nevertheless, found this can be read as a stand-alone book. Kerry is the only sister not married. Kerry is filled with wanderlust and has traveled the world. However, she returned home to Blueberry Cove for a wedding last year, and stayed on because her beloved Uncle Gus had a stroke, and Kerry was more than willing to care for him and help out in in pub. One night, [...]
This is the third book in the Brides of Blueberry Cove series by Kauffman and I'm really hoping it isn't the last. Not only have I grown to love these characters but I absolutely adore the town.Finally we get Kerry's book and it was everything I was expecting and more. If you read the previous book you know that Kerry has traveled the world and hasn't stayed in one place long enough to have ties but she has returned to Blueberry Cove for not only for the weddings in the family but to help her un [...]

I was given an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.In this third book of The Brides of Blueberry Cove series, Kerry is the only McCrae sibling who isn't gaga in love. She had come home from the travels she is known for when the weddings started. They just kept on coming, so she's still in Blueberry Cove helping out at her uncle's bar. That's where she is when Cooper Jax, her Aussie boss from her last temporary stay, walks in and proposes in front of what she's sure is at least [...]
4.5 stars!!!Book 3 in Donna Kauffman's Brides of Blueberry Cove series! Fiona McCrae is next on the marriage listbut an unexpected visitor drops on the scene and the gossip mill has a change of focus that sets tongues waving and rumors flying! Who is this one tall, blue-eyed, blond with an accent to die for, taking up the doorway of the Rusty Puffin his gaze on no other than Kerry McCrae, his name Cooper Jax, straight from Camaroo Down Australia! Cooper has waited long enough, hoping for the ret [...]
What a fun read! I did not want to put this book down – but had to – there were other things I had promised to do. Australia has always fascinated me and having a book with a man from “Down Under” who is as warm, witty and charming as Cooper Jax show up in Blueberry Cover to woo Kerry McCrae proved the perfect read for me. The witty dialogue and fun times spent together, the honesty and clarity of conversation when discussing big issues and the willingness to see whether or not a long te [...]
