Pelican Point

Pelican Point
A Hope Harbor Novel
Irene Hannon
ISBN: 9780800728809
April 2018/368 pages/$15.99

In the midst of life's storms, unexpected love is a beacon of hope.

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. Can Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?

Come home to Hope Harbor...
where hearts heal--and love blooms

Irene Hannon is doubly gifted: she writes suspense novels that make me gasp and contemporary romances that make me sigh. Pelican Point is another delightful addition to her Hope Harbor series. While it is easily read as a standalone, I loved reuniting with characters from the previous novels, such as Charley, who dispenses wisdom along with his ever-popular fish tacos. Once again, Hannon creates engaging and believable characters in Marci and Ben, each of whom tug at my heart as they face the obstacles that stand between them and their opposing goals. Equally compelling and authentic, Greg and Rachel added depth to the story, and I cheered for them to find their way. Oh, and what's not to love about the unique couple Floyd and Gladys, who only Charley seems to fully understand? (I've always thought Charley is what the Bible refers to as an "angel unaware.") While this story definitely qualifies as a romance, Hannon deftly tucks in a flicker of suspense, adding a layer of tension as the climax nears. You don't want to miss this book or series. Visit Hope Harbor and Pelican Point this spring. Tell Charley I sent you!
