    Amazing series! the beginning of a really good romantic,love story & also detective series which involved two strong female leads plus some good supporting cast. Both leads themselves had trust issues and lots of other stuff in their lives but manage to end up having feelings for one another. Then there is other characters in this town that has problems and efficient side stories for readers to fish through --enjoyable,intense,entertaining and action pact..recommended series (paperback!)

    I wanted to like this book, really I did! I've read some awesome books by Radclyffe and the reviews for this one were good. But she is not a sure thing either. Sometimes I find myself being completely annoyed by one of her stories, and this is one of those times!I try not to rate books that I don't finish. But I still do.. because I think it says a lot about a novel when it can't keep a reader interested, or when it bothers the hell out of them from the beginning. Because I seem to be one of very few that didn't like the book, I feel obligated to write an honest (and really mean) review.I haven't finished Safe Harbor. As it is the case in all the Radclyffe stories I dislike, the characters of this one are just TOO perfect. They're always so beautiful, charming, intelligent, funny, polite, brave, honest............. Those women DO NOT exist in real life, or if they do, it's really rare that they are both gay and actually find each other in an American small town. Not only do I find this unrealistic, but it also bores me to tears. I love stories with characters that are actually human and vulnerable. And it's not enough that Tory was injured, for some reason the weaknesses Radclyffe gave her characters in Safe Harbor appear like a lame excuse to say "my characters are not actually goddesses. But they are a little". As a result of that, the characters seem to lack depth and the emotions feel really superficial. I also feel like I have read this story a million times before. A small town in the US, a broody butch sheriff/detective/cop/deputy in a uniform, a beautiful femme who's a doctor/store owner/neighbor. And of course a story like this never goes without the cliché lines like "Oh my god I don't know what I'm doing Catherine", "I don't know if I should trust her", "Are you scared that you might love her?", "This isn't my heart we're talking about, this is my soul!". God it was so cheesy I was actually embarrassed. But maybe the thing that bothered me the most was how clueless Reese is. 37 and never been on a date? 37 and doesn't have a clue what she likes? I mean who is THAT sheltered? even after working in the military? It might be endearing to some, but it was annoying to me.I might get really really tired of American stories, in which it's often the same settings and the same dynamics. It's almost always a femme and a butch, almost always in small towns surrounded by a lot and a lot of.. water, grass, mountains? I know it's what the authors know, but it's still uninteresting to read after a while, and all those stories become one in my mind, so that I hardly remember what any of them are about. It'd be nice to read something that takes place in a big city, with the energy and life of thousands of people on the street, jobs that are not just doctors and farmers and cops... just something different.

    Radclyffe knows like no other how to build a romance at a rhythm that is realistic. You will get to know the characters little by little, and you you go along in the developing love story.Okay, Radclyffe does not write the most original stories, when I look at originality, I would have to rate it 4 stars. But when I rate these kind of books, I take into account the feelings and emotions the writer is creating. And I believe Radclyffe is a master at that. Her books grow on me every time. I think her books are very romantic and tasteful, and she writes beautiful intimate scenes. To create a balance between Hot and steamy but romantic as well, that's hard! And yet in my opinion she gets it right again and again. That what makes Radclyffe one of my favorite writers. And would like to recommend her books to everyone with a romantic soul.

    I LOVE Radclyffe's books! I find myself not wanting this series to end, I want to continue reading about these people. I don't usually like fiction but I will read ALL of Radclyffe's books....

    This is the first book from Radclyffe that I've ever read. I found it on the Audible romance package and I decided to give it a go. I really enjoyed this book. The way it was written was fantastic. The characters were well developed, as were the secondary and tertiary characters. All the story lines flowed perfectly. The dynamic between Tori and Reese is captivating. Both characters are strong and competent. The build of their friendship and relationship was executed splendidly. (the narration was also done very well)I loved this book. This is one of the best F/F romances I've ever read. I'm very very glad I stumbled on this author. I will definitely be checking out the rest of the series and her other works as well.

    What a prolific writer! So far, I'm more of a fan of the Provincetown series than the Honor series. Radclyffe definitely likes her main characters to have goddess like characteristics, which is a little bit cliché and seems to be the defining rule of all the lesbian series I've read so far. But she is a good writer, especially since she is churning them out like nobody's business.

    I really enjoyed the characters, in particular Dr. Victoria King. Independent, feisty and dedicated to her patients. I also enjoyed the interaction between Tory and Reese. The care and concern for each others' well-being is a wonderful way to build romance and a relationship.

    My first Radclyffe book, and what a disappointment. Flat writing, characters needed something more to be multidimensional (they often felt like cardboard cutouts), unrealistic everything most of the time (and I don't mean the average amount of suspension that reality usually needs in a typical lesbian novel). Transitions within the book weren't smooth, and the sometimes rapid switching between character viewpoints was dizzying and frustrating. Overall the book had great potential, but missed the mark for me. I always hear great things about Radclyffe. As this was my first, I'm not yet sure if it was just this book or if it's the author, but I'm far from being a member of the cult so far. Very unimpressed, I want better from what I read. I don't always get it, and sometimes even the not so good can be a lot of fun, but this book didn't get the job done.

    Reese Conlon is new to Provincetown, a haven for gays and lesbians. While many of the women in town are intrigued by her beauty and her tendency to stick to herself, she stymies many with her lack of personal details. Included is her boss, who doesn't really get Reese but appreciates the time she spends mentoring his daughter Brianna. Not really curious about Reese, Dr. Victoria "Tori" King. At least not until her clinic is broken into and Reese is the responding officer. The two begin a delicate courtship dance that is frequently interrupted. I had read some Radclyffe books before and thought this might be a nice one. Early in her career, this book is nice but sort of an unpolished version of what she writes later.

    Corrective r*pe of a child and further gay bashing near the end. Nope.

    I am a big fan of Radclyffe especially the series books. After I finished the Justice Series I was hesitant to start another series because I fell in love with all of her Justice characters and I couldn't imagine transitioning into another series with different characters. After the withdraw from the Justice Series subsided,I finally took the leap and started reading the first book in the Provincetown Tales series. I absolutely love, love, love the Provincetown Tales, the characters, especially the main characters Reese, Tory, Bri and Caroline. Customary to Radcliffe's style of writing each book introduces new characters keeping on the edge of love and hope and overcoming tragedies while their lives intertwine with the main characters. Also,if you read the Justice Series First-another great surprise is in store for the readers in the latest Provincetown Tales "Sheltering Dunes".

    I really needed this one after Red Audrey and the Roping. Perfect antidote to LIT-ra-chure. This is the first of her Provincetown series. She's true to the town, as far as I could tell (not being a local), though she mentions a town, Easton, which is not on the Cape. Maybe she meant Eastham. The sheriff's dept. is at the county level, not town, and we don't have townships, but minor points, allowed for literary license. Anyway, strong, silent cop meets strong, shy doctor. The usual happens. I just wish the sex scenes didn't make me giggle. I don't think that's intended. Fair amount of implausibility, but that's to be expected.

    a contemporary lesbian romance set in Provincetown. I’ve had bad luck finding lesbian romance and erotica I enjoy, so I was pleasantly surprised by award-winner Radclyffe’s novel. A butch sheriff’s deputy (and veteran) and a doctor who has had her heart broken have both built fortresses around their emotions. There is certainly drama and suspense and moments of uncertainty. But like any good romance, love finds a way through it all.And also, it made me want to do rowing (at the gym at least). :)

    A little superficial!Love this writer. Love that the series is set in P-town. Great characters. Good plot. I just felt the treatment was a little superficial. Also not sure I believe that someone who has never even dated could be so sexually intuitive and adept. Just me? Not my favorite.

    It's summer and time to read lesbian romances. I think that Sara recommended this to me numerous years ago and I am finally getting to that stack. As lesbian romances go, well done and readable. Usually I find myself repeating to myself, "seriously" did the author just write that, not with Safe Harbor. It is a fun read.

    I've been reading this series of Provincetown Tales and have really enjoyed them. Mostly I've enjoyed them because the characters are so likeable. You feel like you have a new circle of friends. This isn't a heavy book, just a nice Sunday afternoon lounging sort of read. Good sexual chemistry between the main characters too.

    ExcellentThis is a great story to read. It has everything. Love, Honor, pride, friendship and great scenery. Radclyffe puts you right there. Her descriptions are awesome. Her characters are very realistic. The storyline isn't far from reality either. She deals with some difficult topics with compassion and sincerity. Great book, great read. I loved it. Off to look for more.

    This is exactly the kind of book I was looking for. It doesn't matter that the main characters are lesbian. I formed an instant emotional attachment to Reese and then to Tory. Their story make you smile and cry, what more could you want.

    Típica zaga de la autora, como siempre sucede con ella, todos sus libros y zagas tienen la misma dinámica,uno ya sabe lo que le espera y como irán evolucionando por lo cual es dejarse atrapar por ese placer culpable o no.... De todos modos sirven para pasar el rato,sin pretensiones.
