Publisher's Summary

Fifth-generation lobster-woman Mat Pero loves her traditional Portuguese family and living in the lesbian hub of Provincetown, even if they feel like two different worlds. Or two different lives. Since she has no plans for them to collide, it's not a problem. 

Graham Connor is a romantic at heart, but she hasn't had a date in over a year. She vows to let loose and have a little fun, and the charming and confident Mat is more than happy to help.

But casual hookups aren't supposed to include romantic dinners and meeting the family. Can Mat see beyond the heartbreak that led her to keep her worlds so separate, and will Graham be waiting if she does?

A Cape End romance

Excellent Audio!

I loved Autumn's Light. It great to be back in Ptown. The story of Mat, proud to follow a long line of Lobster"men", and Graham is an excellent continuation of the series. The romance and relationships are good, but I also like learning about what life is like for someone in the lobster/fishing industry. Hollis Elizabeth does an excellent job with the narration.

A Great Farewell to the Quartet

Autumn's Light closes off Aurora Rey's four book trip to Provincetown with a wonderful denouement, and was, I think, my favourite of the bunch.

Before I start, I want to mention I listened to this on audiobook, and the performer nailed the voices yet again—it's always clear who is speaking, the intonations supported the characterization, and the cameos from previous books were perfectly inflected from those books so as an experience, it was smooth and they barely needed reintroduction. This was performed wonderfully.

Mat and Graham just worked together, despite their initial differences. I appreciated where they both came from—Graham being ready to try after a pretty intense ordeal and enough passing time, and Mat keeping her love life separate because of a very clear understanding her family wouldn't handle things well (and given her livelihood was so tied up in her family, at no point did I fault her for these borders). The organic drift as they grew closer felt like just that: organic. Smooth. Which made the putting-on-the-breaks-panic feel totally on-target. I felt their emotional reality, is what I'm saying, and Rey is gifted at this. Ditto their careers and the touches of "day in the life" of the characters at work. I'll never look a gift lobster in the mouth again.

Oh, and as always, the food. I swear Rey's writing makes me hungry every time.

I also really, really appreciated the not-so-perfect family relationship Mat had, and (without spoilers) the resolution thereof, which is rare in queer lit.

Even more? I loved the inclusion of other queer people (notably Dom, Mat's trans man co-worker and cousin) and the obvious care put into the crafting of the character. I loved their relationship, loved that Mat and Dom had each other's number, and basically enjoyed every time Dom's adorable self was on the page, really.

I'm a little sad to say goodbye to Rey's Provincetown, but I'm really glad I got to visit.

Going to miss visiting Provincetown

While I enjoyed the other 3 books more than this one, this was still a good read. Aurora Rey is a talented author and Hollis Elizabeth did a great job narrating this book, I had a harder time getting into this book and actually stopped and read quite a few other books before coming back to finish it as I wasn't as invested in Mat and Graham's romance and story as I was with Lia & Alex, Emerson & Darcy, and Nora & Will. I'm saddened there aren't more seasons in Cape Cod as the series as a whole was wonderful.
