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.
I'm falling a bit in love with Hope Harbor and it's residents and I enjoy each opportunity to visit. Adam was an awesome hero! He'd been dealt a rough hand in life and had made some very wrong choices but I loved the way he'd turned his life around, determined to be the best man he could be. And the way he quietly lent a helping hand whenever it was needed. Lexie was also pretty great. I admired how she put her life back together after her loss. Together they made a cute if a bit unconventional couple. I liked how Lexie judged Adam on the man he was now rather than who he'd been.
I also enjoyed the story of finding the vandals and everything that that entailed. I won't spoil anything though!
Basically everything about this book was well-done and I loved it. I couldn't wait to come back to it every time I had to set it down!
