Three-Time RITA Winner Invites Readers Back to the Captivating Coastal Town of Hope Harbor
After a devastating layoff, attorney Eric Nash heads back to the town where he grew up--only to discover that his childhood home is being transformed into a bed & breakfast. Instead of plotting his next career move in peace, he's constantly distracted by noise, chaos--and BJ Stevens, the attractive but prickly blonde architect and construction chief who's invaded the house with her motley crew.
As for BJ, her client's son might be handsome, but after a disastrous romance, dating isn't high on her agenda. Yet when they join forces to create a program for Hope Harbor seniors, might they also find healing, hope, and a new beginning themselves?
Three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon takes readers back to Hope Harbor for a new season of charm, romance, and second chances.
My thoughts: While the first Hope Harbor novel was lovely and a great story, I do believe I enjoyed returning to Hope Harbor even better with this story! There is a lot going on with both Eric and BJ to bring them to the place where the story begins. I like that both characters have depth to them, which makes them easy to relate to and more than just characters in a story. I enjoyed the themes of the book and that there are other stories going on in addition to Eric and BJ's. Those who read the first story will be thrilled to see some of the previous characters, but there are also some new ones. You don't need to read the first book in order to enjoy this one, since they stand alone well.
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
