    2. Madeline House marks the third novel in Australian author Maggie Christensen’s Oregon Coast Series. This is my first turn at the works of Maggie Christensen and Madeline House is a book that easily reads as a stand-alone novel. Established fans of the series will find much comfort in the return of familiar characters from the previous two novels. New readers, such as myself, will take away much enjoyment from this book. It had me wanting to delve into more witting from this author once I finis [...]

    4. I recently enjoyed the third book in Maggie Christensen's Oregon Coast trilogy, Madeline House.It reintroduces some characters from the former books but concentrates on Beth Carson who runs away from her former Sydney socialite identity, Elizabeth Flynn. Why she left, how she resettles in Oregon, whys she stays and the mystery of how her mother ended up with some postcards of somewhere she'd never been, make for an entertaining read. Beth's personal growth is interesting to follow. I found the c [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book. It is the second of Maggie's books that I have read, and I have enjoyed both. Beth, the main character, leaves Australia to escape an abusive marriage.

    6. This is the first book of Maggie's that I've read and I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. The book is about an older woman who is in an emotionally abusive relationship. When her mother passes she finally has the means to flee Australia and start a new life for herself on her own terms. Making friends, and a new life she finds the peace that she's always wanted. But, the past comes crashing back she finds help where she least expects it. I loved the storyline the characters and the suspense. [...]

    7. MADELINE HOUSE by Maggie ChritensenOnce again I throughly enjoyed this third book in the Oregon. series. I read it while in vacanza in the other Florence. It was good to escape the heat and the madding crowd of the Italian summer and enter the quiet village of Florence with old friends from the previous two novels. Maggie's style of writing is so engaging you feel you are almost part of the circle of friends who are the characters in the book. Great job Maggie. Love your work.

    8. Wow, what a fantastic third book in Maggie Christensen's Oregon Coast series!. While you could definitely read this book as a standalone, I love that some of the main characters from the first two books reappear in Madeline House. It's like catching up with old friends and having a glimpse at where their lives have taken them. The main characters, Beth and Tom, are impossible not to love. The struggles these characters are forced to deal with are handled superbly by the author. I can only hope t [...]

    9. Especially for women who enjoy a light storyMaggie writes clearly, and simply. Without excessive descriptions. Her main characters were likeable, and storyline kept moving nicely towards its ending.
