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.

This book was hard to put down as you become engrossed in the lives of the characters and the struggles they faced. It was also a plain old good story that has twists and turns in the plot.This is the first book from Irene that I read that was not a suspense book-- I have read all of her suspense books-- and I decided to read this book because she is such a great writer. I was not disappointed! I spent a couple of late nights because I couldn't put it down!

A wonderful Christian romance with a lot of food for thought. I enjoyed going back to visit Hope Harbor again. I found my mouth watering every time someone went to Charley’s for an order of fish tacos. Frankly I have rebelled at the idea of fish tacos since the first time I saw them listed on a menu, but Irene Hannon makes them sound so delicious. Now if I could only find Charley’s so I could taste test them, I might change my mind. Actually there seems to be several people changing their minds in the story. BJ has lived in Hope Harbor for a year after deciding living in the big city and working as a high-paid architect was just not the life she wanted. Eleanor discovers how she has held people at arms-length and realizes some changes are in order. Eric has returned to his hometown to regroup after the law firm where he worked sixty-hour weeks in an effort to become a partner made the decision to downsize. His is the main story line as he begins to struggle with his feelings for a beautiful architect, his desire to continue pursuing his career path, and his renewed interest in painting pictures. Like most of us, he wants it all but can he have it all? How can he work sixty hours a week, paint, and pursue the young woman? Is it realistic to even think he can? Does he need to change his thinking? I recommend this book especially for anyone who is struggling to find direction in life. I look forward to the next book in this series.

The second book in the Hope Harbor series is just as great a read as the first. No worries if you haven't read the first one, Hope Harbor...both books stand alone even though they share some of the same characters. Sometimes you want a book that isn't terribly deep but has some tension. This book is just that kind of story, and I love the subtle challenge it offers for the reader....I found myself asking if I always stay within my comfort zone, and also if I tend to judge people by first impressions or even first information, as it were. I look forward to another visit to Hope Harbor.

I really like what author Irene Hannon writes. Her stories are ones that you remember after you read them. Her characters are described well and you feel as if you might know them. This is the story of a young man who goes back home. But when he arrives he has a few surprises waiting for him. His father never told him that he is making his house into a bed & breakfast. The lady he hired caught Eric's eye but she wants no relationships right now. What will happen to them as the house is made over? Will they start to get along? I liked this book and I give it a 4/5. I was given this book from Revell Publishing . These are my opinions.

This is a wonderful contemporary romance novel. This book is a stand-alone story. But at the same time life is going on for many of the characters that were in the first book and their appearances make more sense if you have already read the previous story. Some of them are charmingly eccentric and a lot of fun. I loved returning to Hope Harbor. We meet some new characters in this book and get to visit again with some of our old friends from book one. I really like the depth of the characters that Irene Hannon has created. They appear in every walk of life and many different life circumstances. One of the recurring themes in this book is people who are trying to rebuild a new life for themselves after some type of loss. Some of them have to make drastic changes to do so. But the one thing that helps them all is the deep level of community that exists in this small town on the Oregon coast. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Irene Hannon is one of my favorite authors, however this book is not like her typical. Actually, it reminded me a lot of Debbie Macomber's Rose Harbor books. Anyhow, the story line was sweet and I was very satisfied with the ending. I would definitely recommend this to a friend; great beach read!

Irene Hannon has been a favorite for quite some time. I especially love her Christian romantic suspense novels. She introduced her readers to the tiny northwest town of Hope Harbor last year and Sea Rose Lane takes us back for a second visit. Irene Hannon is able to switch genres very easily, something that sits very well with me. She also has several secondary stories going in her novel and they are quite satisfying as well. We also will be treated to a third visit to Hope Harbor next year! *I was provided with a copy of this novel by Net Galley in exchange for my review.

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? Eric was on the fast track to being partner in the law firm he worked in. Due to lay offs he is back home. All he can think about is finding the next law firm and getting back on the fast track to partner again. Little does he know God has something else planned for him. He meets BJ who is renovating his childhood home into a B&B. She wants nothing to do with him as she sees him as the same type of person who stuck a knife in her back in her previous career. This is a nice easy read. Yes, you do know that the guys gets the girl in the end. But don't they usually. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a clean, sweet romance. I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
