A crumbling lighthouse is not part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career.
Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home–and she’s determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.
Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?
Bestselling author Irene Hannon invites readers back to their favorite town for a story that will light a beacon of hope within their hearts.
Great book! The characters drew me in and I found it soo hard to like Ben Garrison, the Army doctor who inherits a lighthouse and, since he doesn’t want it, is willing to sell it to a developer planning on tearing it down. Made me dislike him right away! But I did enjoy reading the book – especially as feisty Marci springs into action to save the lighthouse! This novel has so many neat elements – a lighthouse, a suffering war veteran, a woman with a fear-filled past. Will God redeem these things and create a beautiful future?
I so enjoyed this story – a fun romance, a little bit of suspense and a taco guy who dishes sage advice! I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review – all thoughts and opinions are my own.
