The third of Elizabeth Lowell's Donovan books, Pearl Cove, is perhaps one of the earliest Lowells that levels up a bit for me in general quality of plot and character development. It's still formulaic-I haven't met a Lowell suspense novel that isn't, even if it's a formula I happen to enjoy. But this one at least does a better job than others. PEARL COVE - G Lowell, Elizabeth - 3rd in Donovans series. Surrounded by potential enemies, Hannah McGarry faces the mystery of her husband's suspicious death, the prospect of bankruptcy. and the disappearance of the fabulous Black Trinity necklace that was to be her financial security.

Lowell combines her trademark sophisticated suspense and sexual intensity with a plot rich in the fascinating lore of cultured pearls and full of Australian atmosphere and the sights and sounds of Seattle.

Home Elizabeth Lowell Pearl Cove. Each pearl came from a genetically singular strain of Pearl Cove oysters. The result was a black pearl with unique orient, utterly distinct from the familiar Tahitian gems. The harvest from Pearl Cove’s special oysters resembled a black opal as much as a pearl. That difference alone would have made the triple necklace recklessly valuable. But the Black Trinity was value piled on value, rarity on rarity.

It is desperation that inspires young widow Hannah McGarry to call Archer Donovan. She saw the man only twice in the past ten years, and he struck her as a cold, ruthless piece of work. But as a silent partner in Pearl Cove, her late husband's pearl farm business, Donovan might be willing to help her...if the price is right.

At twenty-nine, Hannah has been freed to live her life again. Now she faces the mystery of her late husband's suspicious death, the prospect of bankruptcy...and the disappearance of the Black Trinity, a necklace containing a three million dollar fortune in black pearls that was to ber her financial security.

Archer Donovan would rather roget he'd ever heard of Pearl Cove. It links him to memories of living life on the dark side, the old lure, the heart-pumping, soul-numbing certainty that there was no law, no justice, no mercy; just hunters and the hunted. That life taught him to trust no one but family. But when Hannah McGarry calls in an old debt and offers a million dollars, Archer is plunged back into the hell he vowed never to revisit; into a deadly game of mony, power, cutthroat competition, and treachery in pursuit of a stolen fortune. At his side is a woman he shouldn't want, yet cannot resist...a woman who may know more than she's telling about her husband's death...and more than is safe to know about that dark and elusive black pearls. With a feeding frenzy of human sharks on their tails, Archer and Hannah race through unchanted waters in search of the fabulous Black Trinity. And the closer they come to finding the coveted pearls, the closer they come to danger and truth-and to each other

4.5. The Donovan books are some of my all-time favorite modern romance books. Like many, I like Archer the most, so this is probably my favorite. I think EL does a good job of creating an Alpha male that is hard, and tough, but also likeable and ultimately a good person. She knows when to pull back, and gives them more facets to their personalities. It was a nice break to re-read this after finding so many modern romance books have fallen into the obnoxious alpha male who is just a jerk, with no respect for women, a la 50 Shades.

The first time I read this, I remember being somewhat bored by the the detailed pearl explanations, but I've re-read it several times since, and find it more interesting each time around. But I admit, the negative in her books is that if you don't have patience or interest in reading through the explicit detail, it can be a tough go.

I like how she built this world with the Donovan's that I've become attached to. Still hopeful we get the stories on the last two Donovan men, who were MIA in the first four books. She wrote that she was going to work on writing Lawe's story after she finished a couple other books, back in 2016, and I'm hoping that's still true. Maybe Emeralds this time?

The only negative with this book, for me, was Hannah. I wasn't crazy about her, and was somewhat disappointed in EL choosing her for Archer. She seemed very childish and too Pollyanna-ish for Archer, and I thought he deserved better, but that's just my opinion. The book was still well-written, and Ms. Lowell continues to amaze me with her attention to detail, I really find myself with a clear mental image of the surroundings when she writes. I can only assume she's been to these places since she writes so visually.
The book held my interest and I finished it in one weekend day. There was plenty of action & intrigue; I especially liked all the details given about the perils of pearl farming and the pearl industry. Obviously the author did a great deal of research, and she wove it seamlessly into the story line. Bravo for that.

I give this book three stars because the characterization of Hannah really didn't seem very plausable. Since she's the main character, it's a minor stumbling block. The author gives Hannah's background as a missionary kid in the wild jungles of South America. I've known some MKs, and it's a very religiously strict upbringing. Then Hannah endures a long term, emotionally abusive marriage. So does it make any sense to any reader that within the space of a few days Hannah would launch herself into a steamy, sexual liason with the half brother of her very recently deceased husband?

Had she been written differently, maybe... just maybe the reader could envision her becoming so powerfully overcome with Archer. I'd think it very unlikely any woman raised to be repressed -- then imprisoned in an abusive marriage -- *could* tumble to the bathroom floor and have wild, uninhibited sex with any man (let alone one connected as family) before you can say "was it good for you?"

The rest of the story line was compelling enough for me to overlook the inconsistency. I did like the characterization of Archer, who is multi-layered and complex while trustworthy and likable. And again, the amount of information provided throughout the story line sparked a real fascination with an industry that's both mysterious and mesmerizing. Overall, very much worth reading!
Let me reveal my prejudices right up front - I'm a big Elizabeth Lowell fan and I've loved all of her contemporary novels, especially the Donovan series. "Pearl Cove", however, is truly exceptional. Archer Donovan is the oldest Donovan brother, and he has a definite edge about him. He's physically amazing - of course - but he also has deep emotions that he keeps tightly controlled. When his illegitimate half-brother's wife, Hannah, asks him to come to Pearl Cove, Australia following the brother's murder, he immediately leaves his comfortable home in Seattle. The trip stirs up a lot of emotions for Archer. There's his complicated relationship with the half-brother, his uncomfortable past as a secret operative, and his forbiden attraction to Hannah herself. You're in for lots of love, lust and adventure as he and Hannah sort it out.
One of Lowell's fortes is her wonderful research which she artfully weaves into her story. You'll learn any amazing amount about the fascinating world of pearls while you're reading this book - the way they're made, how they are appraised and the international pearl market - but Lowell so skillfully adds it to the story that you won't feel like you're getting a lesson. You will also love her well-developed and exciting characters, not to mention the Donovan family. I like my family quite a lot, but I'd be happy to be adopted by the Donovans... I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Lowell will give us the stories of the absent twin brothers!
I absolutely loved this book. After reading Amber Beach, I couldn't wait to read the next in the series. I wasn't disappointed. I have been in love with pearls since I was a child and sat next to a very wealthy woman in church who always wore black and the most magnificent strand of opera length pearls. They shown with the iridescence and rainbows described in the book. After reading Pearl Cove, I'll never look at pearls in the same way. I am amazed at the amount of research Elizabeth Lowell puts into her books. Not the run of the mill author . I know one thing for sure, you'll never waste your time or money on the costume jewelry counter again.
