From Publishers Weekly

Bretton's newest contemporary romance (after A Soft Place to Fall) is an engrossing tale of hope, promise, heartache and misplaced dreams. Maddy Bainbridge and her headstrong mother, Rose, have never gotten along, but when Maddy's Seattle-based dot-com crashes and her husband divorces her, she has no choice but to return home to Paradise Point, N.J., with her four-year-old daughter Hannah. It's three weeks before Christmas, and Maddy is determined to make a go of it with her mom while attempting to put a little happiness back in her daughter's life by giving her an Aladdin-style `magic lamp' (actually a teapot) she's found on the Internet. The only problem is that someone is aggressively trying to outbid her. Her adversary, she soon learns, is ex-firefighter Aidan O'Malley, owner of O'Malley's Bar and Grill across town. He's trying to win the teapot for his daughter, Kelly, who believes it to be the one that graced the walls of O'Malley's 50 years earlier. When Maddy scores the winning bid, the sale becomes the catalyst that brings generations of families together, suggesting the teapot may have magic powers after all. While this Christmas tale may seem out of place among the summer season's beach offerings, its uplifting message and smooth storytelling make it a pleasant read any time of year.

From Booklist

Even though she realizes that you can't go home again, financial necessity forces divorcee Maddy to pack up her four-year-old daughter, Hannah, and leave Seattle for Paradise Point, New Jersey, where she moves into her mother's bed-and-breakfast. Desperate to do something that will cheer up her morose child, Maddy sees a samovar resembling Aladdin's lamp on the Internet and begins bidding as "JerseyGirl." Aidan's teenage daughter, Kelly, believing the Russian teapot will make her ailing great-grandmother happy, gives him strict instructions to be the successful bidder. "FireGuy" gives it his best shot but loses to "JerseyGirl." Frantic, he sends e-mail after e-mail to her, upping the profit margin each time, but the mystery woman holds firm. After Maddy and Aidan meet by chance, they realize they have more in common than the samovar, but both have unresolved family issues, and the teapot becomes a symbol of their efforts to resolve them. Bretton's warm, wonderful book presents complex familial and romantic relationships, sympathetic characters, and an underlying poignancy and will please fans of Kathryn Shay and Deborah Smith.

A slow start, which made me think " oh gosh, another boring drama-filled story", but after a couple of chapters it picked up, and I was really drawn into the lives of Rose, Maddy, Hannah and Aidan. The way the author interweaves their lives, the relationship between Rose and Maddy had me glued to the pages until the end. Very good narration style, good characters (who all carry a big burden and secrets), humorous dialogues and a very interesting plot make this a hearwarming story I really enjoyed reading.
The only thing that put me a bit off was toward the end, the last quarter - the Hannah/Irene angle (sorry, may be a bit of a spoiler), just did not fit in, or was this supposed to be a supernatural story? For me, this last bit spoilt the rest of a good story a bit.
All in all though, a very enjoyble read after a slow start..

...once again I seem to have misinterpreted the "Book 1" bit. I loved this story, the characters, and the dynamics. The better part of this book centers around the relationship between Maddy and her mother, but of course there's a love story going on as well. And as the book ends and you find yourself content after a happy read, you see the announcement for Book 2, which is about...the same love story, to be continued. I found that really annoying. This book seemed to have found a natural ending already, so I don't see why it has to go on. So to me this is not "Book 1" but "Part 1". Overall, though, an absolutely recommendable book.

HASH(0xa753e00c) von 5 Sternen Good Mother/ Daughter and a Side of Romance 8. Februar 2013
Von Sandra J. Long - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Mothers and Daughters have very unique relationships. They can be the heartbreak and the elation. Throw in a Grand-Daughter and a Good Looking Man, with a Daughter, then all the relatives and you've got this book.

It has much 'thinking' of characters and drags the book out, which I just 'skipped read' to get back what was going on. This is the only complaint I have though.

It's 'G' rated, no sex.

HASH(0xa2525d20) von 5 Sternen Great Women's Fiction 29. Mai 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Sometimes an author takes a risk and it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Ms. Bretton took a risk with SHORE LIGHTS and came up with her best book yet. Don't be fooled by the word ROMANCE on the spine. Yes, there's a sweetly emotional love story between Maddy and Aidan but this is really a story about family, especially about mothers and daughters. Ms. Bretton doesn't write about perfect people in a perfect world. Her characters are so real they almost jump out of the book and sit down at the kitchen table with you and tell you their story. This is a comlex story about real human emotions and I can't sum it all up in 1000 words. But I do know that if you're looking to laugh (lots of witty dialog) and to cry (bring your tissues) and to feel better when you finish than you did when you started, SHORE LIGHTS is the book for you.

HASH(0xa2506854) von 5 Sternen Not my cup of tea (or teapot?) 9. November 2004
Von a-wish-upon-a-star - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read some of Barbara Bretton's other books, and have enjoyed, but this book was a very different type of story, (not a romance), and it just didn't draw me in.

Everybody has their own background, their own slant as to what will touch their heart. I saw that many people loved this book, but I guess our own experiences shape our interest, and although I loved other Barbara Bretton books, I should have checked out the synopsis before buying.

This is not a romance book, but rather a book that was more about mother/daughter relationships. I always had an excellent relationship with my mother, and so this story did not "talk" to me. I felt myself feeling that Rose was very much at fault, and I kept wanting to tell her off! Since it's a little hard to "tell off" a character in a book, this book left me feeling rather frustrated. Add that I didn't like the whole supranatural theme, and I found myself with very little to enjoy! The only part of the book that I liked was the side story about his wonderful daughter, and I felt that that story really went nowhere.

If you are looking for a book about mother/daughter relationships, check the other reviews, and you will see that this book comes highly recommended. But if you are looking for a romance, you might want to look further.

HASH(0xa1e68f90) von 5 Sternen Too much in one book 21. November 2013
Von Dorita A Batman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Too many characters, too many stories in one book. It got confusing trying to follow all the cousins, kids, and background stories. I was getting bored and just wanted to read about the main characters love story but it was more back burner to all the other ones.

HASH(0xa1e46c24) von 5 Sternen Touches the Heart 28. Mai 2003
Von Rachelle Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is so much more than a love story. It is the story of an adult woman's relationship with her mother. It is the story of dealing with past mistakes and inaccurate perceptions, and of strength. It is a story about letting go of a beloved grandmother and seeing the joy within the sadness. It is a book about accepting that some of the greatest loves come with two people who do not meet society's definition of success or perfection,who have their faults and their scars and are loveable anyway. This book caused me to reexamine my relationship with my mother and to relive her death. It was very healing for me to read this book. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for fiction with substance, and a change from the "fluff" we sometimes read. It is the best of Barbara Bretton!
