I liked that there were several story lines in this book and how they all connected with one another. I really liked the main characters, Steven and Holly. Holly was such a caring and thoughtful person. Through her small acts of kindness, she shows how you can have a positive impact on a person’s life. I liked how she did not let her physical struggles stop her from accomplishing her goals. And, wow, Steven’s past, at least part of it, was a total shocker and I felt so bad for him, but absolutely loved how he had changed! I also really enjoyed Pete’s story and how his new friends impacted his life in such a meaningful way.
I also loved the faith element of forgiveness that ran throughout the story and the feeling of community and neighbors helping neighbors.
My only issue with this story is that I felt like things all tied up too neatly at the end, but honestly, I’m good with that! I look forward to diving into the rest of this series!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book.
I would say that the faith element is (3) strong.
SEE TRIXI'S REVIEW
A year ago, ex-Delta Force operator Steven Roark left the rigors of combat behind to run fishing charters in Hope Harbor, decompress, and talk some sense into his kid brother. Business is good--but making peace with his past is more challenging than he expected.
First-grade teacher Holly Miller leads a quiet, low-profile existence--until she's recruited to advocate for a cause that's dear to her heart. When she solicits Steven's assistance, sparks fly--especially after they find themselves on opposite sides of an issue that disrupts their placid seaside community.
As these two seemingly incompatible souls search for common ground, might they discover a deeper connection--and find that love can banish darkness and light the way to a future filled with promise?
Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites you back to Hope Harbor--where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
