Eric Nash returns home to Hope Harbor to see his father and consider his career options after his position at a prestigious law firm is terminated. Upon arriving home, however, he discovers his beloved childhood home is being converted to a bed and breakfast. Seeking some consistency among the turmoil in his life, he attempts to relax by the sea and take time to rejuvenate. Meanwhile, dedicated and ambitious BJ Stevens is excited to renovate the bed and breakfast for Eric’s dad, but her ideas and methods may cause some tension in the house. As Eric and BJ end up joining forces to help the older residents of Hope Harbor, opinions clash and sparks fly, forcing each of them to face feelings of the past and examine their own hearts.
I enjoyed the writing of this novel and the hope and spiritual aspects interspersed with the plot. The characters are imperfect and easy to connect with and the scenery is picturesque and beautifully told. I liked the story and the way the author connected several plot lines. The romance is tastefully written and not rushed or unbelievable. It was great to read about some past characters from the first novel in this series but reading this first book is not required in order to understand and appreciate this story. I recommend this book to those who like contemporary romance!
I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
