  • 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 Review:

    This was an enjoyable contemporary Christian romance book. It can stand alone from the first book in the Hope Harbor series. It is perfect for summer reading. Eric Nash grew up in Hope Harbor but does not return often. He is laid off from his job of big time lawyer so he heads home to see his father and decompress. He is surprised to find the house being turned into a bed and breakfast. The contractor on the house is a woman named BJ. He starts off on the wrong foot with her when he first gets to town. Their attraction is there from the beginning. BJ has her own issues from her last relationship that went really bad. She is scared to love again and does not want to leave Hope Harbor. She has fallen in love with the people, town, and lifestyle. Eric does not think he is staying for more than a few weeks. Their were some memorable secondary characters too. The characters and plot were well developed and interesting. The conclusion was satisfying. I am looking forward to reading the next Hope Harbor book. Recommended.

    Irene Hannon is the bestselling author of more than fifty novels, including One Perfect Spring and Hope Harbor, as well as the Private Justice and Men of Valor series. Her books have been honored with three coveted RITA Awards from Romance Writers of America, a Carol Award, two Reviewers' Choice Awards from RT Book Reviews magazine, a Retailers' Choice Award, two Booksellers' Best Awards, and a National Readers' Choice Award.
