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 received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Reads and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
When I think of Irene Hannon, I think of suspense and thrills. But, I must say that this book, really was amazing. She is absolutely wonderful in her writing styles. Her books are unique and captivating and always have a message within the pages for the readers to reflect on. I loved that!
Lexie and Adam’s characters are very complex yet blended smoothly in the story line. It’s a powerful story line. Some of the issues in the story, really hit home with me as I have two teen sons who have faced some of the same issues. It’s very heart wrenching, yet Ms. Hannon’s words are inspiring. I loved being able to feel a part of the story and understanding some of the characters feelings.
I loved the characters that Ms. Hannon added to the story. They all wrapped around Lexie and Adam and complimented them well! There were a few occasions I found my self chuckling out loud when the secondary characters showed up in the story. It rounded out the feels of the book.
I would definitely recommend this book to all with 4 star praises! It’s filled with heart stealing characters, a plot that will leave you thinking long after you’ve shut it’s pages, and inspiring words that you just might need to read. I loved every minute of this book and it’s definitely a keeper on my shelf! While this is the 3rd book in the Hope Harbor series, it’s definitely easy to read as a stand alone. Although there are characters I’m hoping we will see more of in future books (hint, hint, Ms. Hannon!) and some that I’m looking forward to reading about in previous books. Great job, Ms. Hannon!
