This is my second Hope Harbor series book to read and I hope to read all of them!
As I began reading my mind raced back to the previous book and Hope Harbor's charm and nostalgia. The author has created a place you would want to visit and even live there: the wonderful people, the town's businesses and the ocean with its beautiful beaches. I love it!
Being a small community, anyone new is noticed right away (I have lived in places like that). The new comer is young woman that is very guarded and reclusive. She interacts very little with others and wears huge sunglasses to hide her face. Zach Garrett who owns the local coffee shop notices her right away. Fascinated by her secrecy and mysteriousness he finds himself determined to befriend her. He discovers she is renting the beach house next door to him. Perfect! He will stop at nothing to get to know her and her story.
. Some of the characters are at a crossroads in their lives. It takes courage to step out and take a different path from the one you have become accustom to for so long. At first it can seem wrong and uncomfortable. Most of us don't like change, even for the better. I liked that even though they grappled and even resisted with a new direction because of the unknown, they relied on God to direct them. I could relate to times in my life when God was nudging me to move away from my comfort or not so comfortable zone. The decision each of the individuals stood at the edge of, dealt with new relationships, healing seemingly impossible old ones, and their calling in life. I must admit their grappling with whether they would step out on faith, kept me on the edge of my seat. I kept wondering what they would choose (and what I thought they could choose!). I had trouble putting it down! A wonderful Christian read!

Welcome back to the quaint town of Hope Harbor, Oregon! A special place of second chances. Easy to read as a stand alone, with a few returning character cameos, like Charley with his divine fish tacos and advice. This was an enjoyable read with a focus on two romances--one younger and one older couple--both newly acquainted and unexpected.

Readers who enjoy lighter contemporary romances set in small towns should enjoy this story. Think 'Hallmark' with underlying Christian themes of reconciliation and redemption. The romances are tender and clean, with a love-at-first-sight vibe. Both couples have issues to work out based on preconceived notions and false assumptions. It made me think about how often I assume things about others and hesitate to reach out in friendship as a result.

The work project idea from a previous story carries on here with a focus on helping others in foster care. I liked how the community comes together so amicably to help others in need. Also encouraging was the way characters turned back to God for help and guidance in difficult decisions, and in extending forgiveness to reconcile. It added depth to the story without feeling too heavy.

Overall a satisfying story, perfect for a beach read or evenings by the fire. Recommend!
