About the book:
Hope Harbor police chief Lexie Graham has plenty on her plate raising her son alone and dealing with a sudden rash of petty theft and vandalism in her coastal Oregon hometown. As a result, she has zero time for extracurricular activities–including romance. Ex-con Adam Stone isn’t looking for love either–but how ironic is it that the first woman to catch his eye is a police chief? Yet wishing for things that can never be is foolish.
Nevertheless, when Lexie enlists Adam’s help to keep a young man from falling into a life of crime, sparks begin to fly. And as they work together, it soon becomes apparent that God may have a different–and better–future planned for them than either could imagine.
Lauded by Library Journal as “a master at character development,” Irene Hannon welcomes readers back to this charming Oregon seaside village where hearts heal–and love blooms.
My review ( 4-stars):
I fell in love with the beautiful cover and it didn’t take long to fall in love with the wonderful storyline. Lexie and Adam are as different as two people can be which made their pairing quite unique and interesting. Their story progressed naturally and at the perfect pace.
I liked the other characters, too. Lexie’s son was one of my favorites and her mother was another that I liked as well.
I hadn’t read the other books in the series, but that didn’t hinder my ability to enjoy this well written book. This is one I recommend for those upcoming beach vacations.
I received a complimentary copy of Sandpiper Cove from Revell Publishing and have given my honest opinion.
