Hope Harbor Series
SUMMARY: Wishing for things that can never be is foolish - or is it?Hope Harbor police chief and single mom Lexie Graham 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? When Lexie enlists Adam's help to keep a troubled young man from heading down the wrong path, sparks begin to fly. Could it be that God may have a different - and better - future planned for them than either could image? Lauded by Literary Journal as "as master at character development," Irene Hannon welcomes you back to this charming Oregon seaside village.
REVIEW: Irene Hannon did another great job with Lexie and Adam's story. I like how both overcome many obstacles and stereotypes to just enjoy each other's company. Adam's willingness to step out of his comfort zone, face his past and help a young man turn his life around while he still has a chance was inspiring. I like how, with Adam's advice and guidance, Lexie is able to face a painful part of her past and forgive herself. I also like how, when faced with heresay and conjecture about Adam and the work he is doing with Brian, Lexie stands up for what is right and publicly supports Adam.
This is an excellent story and have really enjoyed this series. This book, as with the others in this series, is an excellent stand alone. I would encourage you to read the others, even though they only briefly refer to the main character of the other novels. They will give you a better feel for Hope Harbor and its residents. From what I understand, Ms. Hannon will write more set in this small town. If she does, I so look forward to reading them.
