AUTHOR: Irene Hannon
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.
When I “visited” Hope Harbour last year in Sea Rose Lane, I knew I’d love to visit the small coastal town again. Thanks to Revell and NetGalley, this dream came true. Sandpiper Cove drew me back to meet new folks and renew acquaintances with what felt like long-lost friends.
As in her other books, author Irene Hannon has created realistic, multi-dimensional characters—the kind of people you could meet anywhere—but with backgrounds and secrets that brought them to that particular place and time.
This is a book of second chances, of redemption and hope. I fell in love with little Matt, young Brian, and almost all the other inhabitants of the town. As Lexie and Adam face attacks on their character, occupation, and faith, they must learn who to trust and Who is in control.
This story met all my expectations and then some. I loved Sandpiper Cove and award it five stars. Highly recommended.
