In the midst of life's storms, unexpected love is a beacon of hope.
A crumbling lighthouse is part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating batttlefield, and prepare to launch his civilian career.
Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home -- and she's determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.
Sparks fly as the two go head-to-head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. Can Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?
Come home to Hope Harbor -- where hearts heal...and love blooms.
A toe-curling wonder of a read!
The romance is slow and steady and fraught with trepidation. I mean, I knew something was going to happen...but not that! Hannon kept me rabidly turning pages, alternately giggling and swooning and even edge-of-my-seating in places. Love how this once-bitten-twice-shy hero and heroine start to cautiously move towards romance. Reluctant describes them both but so does crazy-attracted-to-each-other. Such a dilemma! Be prepared for some fireworks and lots of sizzle right from the very first time they meet.
Ben all focused on a future that doesn't include Hope Harbor and Marci a passionate town newbie of two years. And then there's the issue of the lighthouse. Don't you just love stories about lighthouses? They hold a romance all of their own. Though Pelican Point has the potential to break these two apart before there's even a happily-ever-after on the horizon! Talk about emotional angst and impossible road blocks!
This is the fourth book in the Hope Harbor series but I'm thrilled to report it won't be the last! Hannon has created an appealing community brimming with characters I want to meet again and again. Like the amiably feuding pastor and priest and the mysterious Charley -- a renaissance man who seems to have all the answers even before a question is asked. He also has a talent for talking to animals...or at least understanding them. Including a pair of seagulls who have a penchant for being front and center at all the town's critical romantic entanglements.
As it says on the back cover -- Come home to Hope Harbor -- where hearts heal...and love blooms. Coming home is exactly how I feel when I read one of these novels so I'm hoping the author doesn't run out of HH inspiration any time soon.
