SANDCASTLE INN by Irene Hannon, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

(A Hope Harbor Novel Book #10): 

(Small-Town Beach Contemporary Clean Romance Set in the Pacific Northwest)

"Slinking home to Oregon with her tail between her legs was the last thing Vienna Price had ever expected to do."

" . . for a guy who spent his life keeping beloved pets healthy, he was way out of his element trying to cure the ills of an ailing inn."

Back to Hope Harbor, where dreams come true and the fish tacos are other-worldly in taste and conversation . . . but neither new resident (albeit temporary) was feeling the vibe . . . just yet. An unexpected corporate level job loss had sent Vienna Price headed to Hope Harbor so that she could visit her mother while weighing her options, while veterinarian Matt Quinn was practically forced into taking a personal leave, just in time to rescue his sister from an investment gone awry; a dilapidated inn with a million dollar view.

Through a series of fortunate events, the two team up to renovate the full of potential, newly branded Sandcastle Inn, which they had already decided could become an upscale bed-and-breakfast with the right kind of finishes. Finding a down-on-his-luck but highly skilled carpenter filled in one of their essential components, but their time frame was getting shorter by the day . . . both to finish the project and to move on with the lives they left behind, unless . . .

"The danger of being too locked into plans is that we can breeze right past forks in the road that could lead to an even better destination than the one we had in mind."

One of my absolute favorite stories in a much beloved series!

BackCover Blurb:
Vienna Price never intended to return for more than a passing visit to Oregon and all the bad memories she'd left behind. But when your career tanks, home is where you go to nurse your wounds and chart a new course. Only temporarily, of course--because as much as she loves her quirky mom, anything more than a short stay would drive them both crazy.

A trip to Oregon isn't in Matt Quinn's plans, either, until a perfectly timed appeal for help arrives from his sister. What better place to decompress after a shattering loss than a quiet, seaside town named Hope Harbor? But R&R isn't on the agenda when he arrives to find his sister's new enterprise on life support.

Vienna, however, may have just the skills needed to resuscitate the foundering B&B--if Matt can convince her to hang around long enough to mend an inn . . . and his heart.
