AUTHOR: Irene Hannon
From the back cover:
Christi Reece is desperate. The onetime golden girl’s life has tarnished, and a cascade of setbacks has left her reeling. She needs help, and she’s certain Jack Colby is in a position to provide it.
When she shows up in Hope Harbor, however, Jack wants nothing to do with the woman who betrayed him. He’s built a new life on the Oregon coast—and there’s no room in it for Christi, even after she takes refuge in a charming but mysterious cottage nearby. Yet it soon becomes apparent his opinion of her may need revising…especially when he ends up needing her help.
Can these two hurting souls open their hearts to a new beginning?
Returning to Hope Harbor feels like coming home. I’ve read each book in this series, and the townspeople seem like old friends. Charley, with his compassionate heart and other-worldly wisdom, is a perennial favorite. Hope Harbor itself carries a sense of sweet mystery, and I enjoyed seeing how it affected Jack and Christi, as well as Beth and Steve.
Irene Hannon’s characters are realistic, recognizable and appealing in their brokenness and longing for hope. What better place to find hope than Hope Harbor? Faith is a vital component of this story, since forgiveness can only come through faith.
I loved Sea Glass Cottage and award it five golden stars (regular ones aren’t enough). I was given a copy of this book by the publisher; all opinions are my own. Highly recommended!
