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.
Lovely! I enjoyed the previous book in the Hope Harbor series even though I hadn’t read any of the other books in the series, and this one? It’s so homey.
Normally when reading a book I’ll want something different, something that is a little bit suspenseful, historical, or romantic, and this was romantic. But not in the way I expected, Starfish Pier is like Chesapeake Shores, quite a bit, though I like it even more since that faith woven in is so perfectly shown.
While there are points that are sad, painful, and heartbreaking, this novel that deals with many of the mistakes that people face today, it is still a clean, quiet, sweet book that contemporary fiction lovers will enjoy.
At first I wasn’t sure if I would like the book since I didn’t like some of Holly’s views but I liked seeing how she grew in her beliefs, and Steven’s past was just so sad. Patrick and Cindy, I loved. Pete and Joshua were adorable. And it was nice to see characters that were in Driftwood Bay … And are the titles darling?
I’m just so in love with this series especially since Irene Hannon is not afraid to show sins and that they can be forgiven.
