Pelican Point

Due to some health issues, I have not been able to do much sewing or quilting lately. But I have been doing a lot of reading.

Pelican Point by Irene Hannon, part of the Hope Harbor series, was a totally delightful read. I had previously read the first book, Hope Harbor, yet each book is an independent story.

Dr. Ben Garrison inherits, wait for it, a lighthouse, from his grandfather. Returning to Hope Harbor Oregon to settle his grandfathers estate, Ben plans to sell the lighthouse, as he prepares to begin his practice back in Ohio.

When Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber learns about the sale, she is determined to save the Pelican Point landmark. What begins as a fiery start, soon cools into a cooperative friendship. They both have past hurts that leaves them skittish, yet sparks fly whenever they are together.

I loved how Ms. Hannon wove this story around the lives of the Hope Harbor residents. She seamlessly brought two hurting hearts to a place where trust and love could flourish.  It was a lovely story and I am looking forward to the next chapter in the Hope Harbor series.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.

So sorry to hear you've not been well - saying a prayer or three that you'll be on the mend quickly! I've been doing an awful lot of reading lately too, but my thing is murder mysteries, much to hubby's!!!

Hope you are feeling better soon. When I was sick, in March, any down time I had, I just vegged, no reading, no sewing, no nothing.
