Lexi and Adam are strange bedfellows, meaning unlikely characters to come together. But they do and I love the way Irene Hannon brings them together. This book is part of the Hope Harbor Novels. This is the first one for me. While an ex-con and a police chief strive for love, this entire book is about love. Not only is there love between the two of them, there is love in the town between one another, and love for an animal- one of my favorite parts. I love the values and morals included in this story. I am so glad to have found an author that I can enjoy reading, I can pass her books to my mother, my niece, and even friends. I encourage all to read this superb Christian author. I now have to go find the others in this series.
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.
