Hope Harbor police chief Lexie Graham has plenty on her plate raising her son alone and dealing with a sudden rash of petty theft and vandalism in her coastal Oregon hometown. As a result, she 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? Yet wishing for things that can never be is foolish.
Nevertheless, when Lexie enlists Adam’s help to keep a young man from falling into a life of crime, sparks begin to fly. And as they work together, it soon becomes apparent 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 readers back to this charming Oregon seaside village where hearts heal–and love blooms.
I absolutely love Irene Hannon’s books! She has an amazing way with words and her books are just absolutely fantastic! This is the second book I have read of hers and it did not disappoint! I read another of this series, not necessarily based on the same characters but the books take place in the same location, Hope Harbor. It was nice to read a book that was placed in a familiar town, with brief touches on previous characters. It made for an easy read!
This book offers up a life lesson about doing good things, helping other people and overall not judging people based on what you see on the outside. It is an inspirational tale of redemption and moving on. I loved the characters and both the main characters, Lexie and Adam, are going through things that you can relate to.
Adam doesn’t believe in himself and has a hard time being in the public’s eye given his prison background, yet Lexie sees beyond that and can’t help falling for him! Her son Matt is adorable and reminds me of my own boys! His spunk and tenacity makes you laugh and his love of Clyde (the dog) warms your heart!
Overall this is a love story between two unlikely people that really tugs at the heart strings. I flew through this book in a hurry! I absolutely loved the characters, the story and the town of Hope Harbor. The sea calls to me lol! 🙂
If you are in the mood to laugh and fall in love, this is the book for you. It is definitely a series to check out, not just this one but all of the Hope Harbor novels. Irene Hannon has quickly became one of my favorite authors! I suggest you go see for yourself!
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
