About Miracles of Marble Cove

Discover what's possible when four friends, bonded by shared secrets, delve into life's mysteries and begin the adventure of a lifetime! Escape to Marble Cove, a quaint seaside town, and see how these courageous women discover God's plan for bringing them all together. 

Diane was given three months to live, until one day, after much prayer, the cancer just disappeared. After moving into a charming new cottage in Marble Cove, where she spent many summers when her kids were young, she becomes friends with her neighbors, except for Beverly, who at first politely rebuffs her attempt at friendship. The women wrestle with what their strange bond means and why God has saved them and given them a second chance at life. As they develop deep and life-changing friendships, they uncover a mystery at the Orlean Point Lighthouse. The decommissioned lighthouse inexplicably flashes beams of light as they discover a man caught in the tide. It takes all four women, even reluctant Beverly, to save him, and they begin to recognize their unique calling to help others.

Best Books so far- Review by bonnie

These books were wonderful. I felt like I made four new friends. Hated to see it end. I could relate to all in my life. Such a comforting read.

Loving each new book- Review by bonnie

Oh no, just found out there are only 24 books in the series and i'm on 18. :-( I don' ever want it to end. These ladies have become my friends and I will so miss them. Thank you so much for letting me share in their lives for awhile. Because of their stories I have made many changes in my life. I'm finally working part time after full time most of my life. I am exploring new possibilites now. Wish I were a writer like Diane. Or even an artist. Thank you again to all these amazing authors for bringing more joy into my life.

Saving My Sanity- Review by Daria

I feel like this series has saved my sanity. Characters and situations I can relate to. Protagonists have interesting problems and challenges but nothing disturbingly immoral. Always an uplifting focus, but not goody-goody or saccharin. Satisfying stories with interesting twists. Authors have a good ability to describe the characters’ emotions, dilemmas and insights in a way that allows us to learn from them. Great before bed reading. Thank God there are 26 of these books!

Really Enjoyable- Review by Daria

Really enjoying these books … an alternate reality I can escape to and relate to. The characters' lives mirror many issues I have dealt with in my own life regarding children, friends, marriage, business, and so on. The best thing is that these books contain interesting plots without the trashy behavior and morals present in most other books. The characters are religious in a low-key way that is true to life.

Wonderful series- Review by Betty

This is a wonderful series. I have bought these books & am sharing them with three friends. We are all totally enjoying them. I feel as though I have made four new friends in the ladies of Marble Cove and am always looking forward to the next book to arrive. Just wish I could receive all the books at the same time or at least three or four, so that I am never without one.

dont want this to end.- Review by bonnie

I feel as if I have made four new friends. I can so relate to Diane as I would love to have her life. And Margaret as an artist is so enjoyable with her wonderful daughter and husband. I have artists in my real family so I enjoy her stories. My sister-in-law has had many paintings entered in art shows and has many first place awards. I think of my two best friends as i read about these ladies. Unfortunately one is gone and missed much. I just love all the characters and hate to see it end someday. Hope we can continue though.

Amazing books! - Review by Sandra

I just finished reading #24, the last book in this series. I will miss my four new friends. Thanks for these very interesting, compelling, inspiring books. Thanks to Guideposts for their very interesting, wholesome books. I will miss Margaret, Shelley, Beverly and Diane. Now to find a new series.

Lessons learned- Review by Susan

The true spirit of the four women are brought to light by the authors. I feel they are all friends of mine. The storyline is so compelling that I find myself finishing it in the same day. I'm halfway through the series and look forward to enjoying the friendship, encouragement, and spirituality these ladies share amoung themselves and those they come in contact with.

Maine, the way life should be... - Review by Jody

I just finished #20...and can't wait for next installment! I live in Maine and it is uncanny how all the writers seem to" get" Maine... the weather, the small town vibe and their characters even the dialect! I know they don't live here so it is a testament to their research abilities. I love how the stories of the four ladies intertwine and yet each have their own unique story line and backgrounds. Reading these books is always a pleasure! My town has recently restored our old train station, it now houses our visitor's center and we even have seasonal train service again... so I am very interested in learning the fate of the depot at Marble Cove. My kudos to the writers to address so many issues from four ladies living in a small town!

Well written books- Review by Ivan M

I enjoy reading these books very much, in fact, it's hard to put the book down once I start reading it. One thing I notice is the men in this series don't pray much. The women are always thanking God for their blessings.
It amazes me how each writer can carry on the story so well.
Thanks for the books of Miracles of Marble Cove. I just finished book # 12, can;t wait for the next book to arrive.

Winning series- Review by Carole

To date I have all the books in the series and I hope the series continues for a very long time. I too love lighthouses. All of the settings are described so well by the authors that I can easily imagine myself there, walking along the beach, sitting in Diane’s house, browsing through Margaret’s shop, smelling Shelley's cookies, seeing Beverly run along the beach. Their friendship is refreshing and their adventures are fun and suspenseful. Each book brings something new. Please don't bring this series to an end for a very long time. I can’t bear to say farewell to these ladies. Guideposts, maybe this is the series to set a record for the longest series ever.

Can't put it down!- Review by Judy

I just got the first book and just couldn't put it down. Melody Carlson is a wonderful writer and hope to see her name again in this series.

I can't wait to get the next book! The women in the series seem like very real people, and the friendship they share is very close and personal. You'll love this series! God bless you all.

love these books- Review by Eva

I have all 11 in my possession, I am on book #8 . I just love the sister hood of these women , and that they got each other for support through hard times and good times. I miss that here in very rural Washington state. All my friends live on the other side of the state. So you could say Beverly, Margret, Shelly and Dian are like my friends. It helps with the home sickness. I encourage you to read this series its like they become family to you and you want to find out whats going to happen next. God Bless and good reading to ya all

The Marble Cove friends are like my own and my age!- Review by Dorothy

I love this series - the diversity of the 4 friends and the friendship they development. When I read the first one - just about a year ago, I had just developed a new friendship and have shared each book with my new friend, I receive a book and finish it in a few days. Then have to wait for the next one. The sad thing is that I just read where the series is ending. I have already read the Winds of Change and look forward to the last. All of the book series are like real friends. I hate to see them end. I have Grace Chapel Inn from the start, loved Sparrow Island, Hope Haven, and the Patchwork series. I just finished the summer trilogy set on Nantucket Island. And I have just ordered the first book from the new series about the owner of a book store. Thank you Lord for such wonderful Christian books about people MY OWN AGE! blessings to all.

Miracles and friendships- Review by Pat

It is amazing how these 4 girls can get along and be best friends and spend time together. God does so much in their lives and when they find the letter life even get better. It is interesting to see how they are going to add the secret chest into the next book along with the bells that are not suppose to ring but do.

1 to 9- Review by Pat

These books are very interesting and they give you the feeling like you are there with these 4 girls and just watching all their moves. You feel the miracles and joys and sorrows as each person story is told. I can't wait for book 10 to come out. I read each book in two days.

Best Book Series Ever - Review by Michele

I too would love to visit Marble Cove after reading the first installment. I did not want this book to come to an end, but fortunately, I bought the first 8 books in the series just from reading the reviews, & it was well worth it. Loved the friendships that were made & the beach town where it all takes place. I'm 55 years old & feel I'd fit right in with those characters, & I'm sure all of us who are reading this series feels the same way. I have a list of the rest of the books in this series & plan to purchase those also. Please don't ever let this series end - keep it going & going & going. Such great interesting stories. What's not to love?

Miarcles of Marble Cove Series- Review by Hazel

I am enjoying this series so very much, I would love to live in Marble Cove. I love the ocean and light houses and I love to read and most of all I love to read Christian based books. I wish series could go on forever.

Love these books!- Review by Pat

I have been reading the Marble Cove series and absolutely love them!! I am just about to start A Midnight Clear. I believe there are four more in the series after that. I am probably going to cry when I finish reading them because I feel like these ladies are friends. This is a terrific series. It is amazing how the books fit together when there are different authors. I have loved lighthouses for a very long time so that makes them extra special. Now I want to take a trip to Maine. Thank you for these great books!!

Story of Four Best Friends - Review by Aggie

I have finished my 7th book A Midnight Clear in this series. I am absolutely thrilled with Diane, Beverly, Margaret and Shelly. I have even asked that they ship my books to me faster than the normal delivery because once I receive the next book I finish it in one or two sittings. Each book has its' own story and has a bit of mystery, lots of laughs and the four women have become really best friends. It is so nice to be able to lose yourself in a great book and I would recommend this series to anyone who likes to read about women that are truly unique in their own way. The lighthouse mystery is so much fun and you will enjoy reading about it. I hope the series never ends.

Enticing- Review by Catmom
