The Cove is a little town made up only of old folk who sell the World's Greatest Ice Cream. Everything is picture perfect. No potholes, no peeling paint, and flowers everywhere. Sally's Aunt Amabel lived in The Cove. It was to Amabel she ran when she escaped the mental institute. Everyone believed she had murdered her father and was insane.
FBI Special Agent James Quinlan comes into town to find Sally. His cover is as a private investigator sent to check out the death of a couple of elderly tourist who had disappeared near The Cove three years before. He asked questions never knowing what he would uncover and how it indirectly linked to Sally. James soon realized that Sally was not crazy at all. But she IS the key to everything.
***The suspense, mysteries, and close calls are nonstop in this one! Catherine Coulter has turned me into a big fan! The Maze takes a subcharacter from this book and gives him his own story. I can hardly wait to read it. Ms Coulter, in my humble opinion, could very well be the Queen Of Romantic Suspense.***

The Cove is definitely one of Coulter's best suspense books ever. This was a page-turner, up-til-the-wee-hours-of-the-night type of book. I enjoyed every page and found myself thinking about the story long after I'd finished. DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK.

I enjoyed The Cove. I could feel Sally's terror each time the "Doctor" came at her with the needle. I enjoyed all the main characters as they were well conceived. I felt some of the secondary characters were a little stiff/cardboard. This book is a keeper. I could not put it down. I loved the added "twist" of the inhabitants of The Cove. I am looking forward to "The Maze".

I enjoyed reading this book. I have read some of the customer reviews and found out the the reason that "The Cove" receives some low marking is because that the story's plot is very complicated. That is perphaps the reason I like this book. The beginning and the end tie well together. Sometime a person just have to read twice before judging a book.
The only disappointment is that the male hero is a little too unreal. And since I read "The Maze" first, I found the character very disappointing. One might think the heros in both of these books are the same character. The only difference is that one is a computer expert. And ... oh ... why does both the the heroines have nightmares and that both nightmares cause the same result.?

I was somewhat disappointed with this book. It seems that at some point, it went through a very strange edit, where odd paragraphs were added in for no apparent reason in inappropriate places, clearly disrupting the flow. Additionally, there were few twists and turns here with the bulk of the suspense easy to guess in advance, and the characters were somewhat two dimensional and failed to get my buy-in. Having said that, if you want something easy to read that takes little concentration, then maybe this is the book for you.

I gave this book 5 star rating as it kept you on the edge of your seat!! I've read a lot of Catherine Coulter books & she never ever disappoints. Enjoyed this one as it was a bit different & had you guessing throughout!! Loved the storyline and the way the older generation did away with the bodies over the years. Well worth reading. Thriller to the end!!
