  • 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.

    My Review:

    This was a good Christian fiction romance book. It is book three in the Hope Harbor series. It can stand alone.The characters and plot were well developed and interesting. The main characters in this story are Lexie and Adam Stone. There are other supporting characters like her son and mom. My favorite minor character is Charley, the taco truck man who is also a local artist. He is kind of like a prophet from God. He gives out wisdom to all the townspeople when they come get a taco. Lexie is the town police chief and Adam Stone is a reformed criminal. They do not cross paths until Adam is targeted by a vandal. One of the vandals is caught and Lexie wants Adam to mentor him. Adam and Lexie end up spending more time together. They feel romantic tension from the start. Along the way are some obstacles. The conclusion is good and fits the book. Recommended to fans of the genre.
