Lighthouse. That’s all I needed to know when I first picked up this book. Because I LOVE lighthouses.
The publisher’s blurb:
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.
What I thought of the book:
Oh no! I’ve jumped into a series on the last book again. But what a jump. This is the fourth novel in the Hope Harbour series, and while it can definitely be enjoyed on its own, like so many later books in any series it’s probably better to have read the previous stories first. Old characters tend to give a lot of the background in everything, and this book was no exception.
On the whole, I really enjoyed this book. Easy to pick up and read, whether I had a few minutes or a whole afternoon. This would be a great story to take to the beach or poolside this summer. The characters are pretty well-developed (though again, already being familiar with the background would probably help a lot), and the storylines flow.
Grab it – you won’t be disappointed. 🙂
