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.
This book is a good story about second chances. I read this book not knowing it was in a series, and I had no trouble getting into the story.
Irene Hannon is an excellent author and writer. I read this book in a short time and was intrigued all the way through the book. The plot and the characters kept me flipping through the pages of this book. Lexie and Adam were good main characters but personally I liked Lexie’s mom. Her playing matchmaker was fun to read. Matt was a fun character to read about too. Who would not like a little boy who eats to much cake and then gets sick. This book is not as suspenseful as some of the other books Hannon has written. I would say that this book pushed towards the forgiveness parts and second chances more, instead of the mystery aspects.
If you are looking for a good, clean book with a little romance and a little suspense then this is an author you must read.
I would recommend this book.
