Wishing for things that cannever be is foolish - or is it?
Hope Harbor police chief and single mom Lexie Graham has zero time for extracurricular activities -- including romance. Ex-con Adam Stone isn't looking for love either -- but how ironic is it that the first woman to catch his eye is a police chief? When Lexie enlists Adam's help to keep a troubled young man from heading down the wrong path, sparks begin to fly. Could it be that God may have a different -- and better -- future planned for them than either could imagine? Lauded by Library Journal as "a master at character development," Irene Hannon welcomes you back to this charming Oregon seaside village.
Come home to Hope Harbor -- where hearts heal...and love blooms
There is something exceptionally delightful about Irene Hannon's characters. There's so much depth and intrigue in each and every one whether they are the hero and heroine or any number of secondary characters -- including Clyde, the dog!
You can tell a lot about a hero by the way he treats a dog. And Clyde will tell you that Adam is a keeper. Some of my favourite scenes are between this life-battered pair. A man who has had a rough start in life and the abused dog he rescued. Both are wary of getting too close to people, finding comfort and safety in their solitude...until Lexie gets involved.
Love the unusual pairing -- an ex-con and a police chief. It's all kinds of complicated and they are their own worst enemies. Both are wounded by past tragedies and their love story doubles as a beautiful redemption story.
"You know...it's interesting how our paths often smooth out if we give God a chance to pave the way, isn't it?" (p 293) One of things I love most about Sandpiper Cove is the way the author has seamlessly woven an inspirational thread into the plot. Faith shines through the lives of some pretty memorable characters. Uplifting but never forced, bringing the warmth of hope to the most difficult situations.
A complex romance that sizzles right to the very last page. Stupendous addition to the Hope Harbor series...and, woohoo...Irene Hannon promises there are more books to come.
