This is the first in Irene Hannon's four book series 'Lighthouse Lane'.
I loved this book! Great story of two people who chose to shut themselves off to love in their future after each suffer tragic loss. The Lord shows them that fear not only locks us in the past, it robs us of joy today, & denies us a future. He brings them together & teaches them to trust Him & the transforming grace of love.

Book description from www.irenehannon.com:
After fourteen years as a Coast Guard search and rescue specialist, followed by a three-year stint at headquarters in Washington, Lieutenant Craig Cole has been assigned to command the Coast Guard station on Nantucket, where he hopes to quietly finish out his career. Its as far away as he can get from Hawaii, where he lost his family to the sea. But his peaceful existence is shattered when he clashes with feisty red-haired charter fishing boat captain Katherine MacDonald. A descendent of a famed Nantucket whaling family, Kate doesnt take kindly to a safety violation citation after the new hot-shot Coast Guard commander beefs up inspections. Since being widowed four years ago while pregnant with her daughter, life has been difficult enough, and she determines to give a wide berth to the by-the-book lieutenant. But when his young daughter arrives and its clear hes a fish out of water when it comes to winning her heart, Kate steps in to help. Sparks flarebut neither wants to take the risk of loving again. Yet it seems God has other plans for themif they can find the courage to put their trust in Him.
