Deb’s Dozen: Rambunctious Dog Causes Two Adults and One Girl to Search for Romance

Driftwood Bay–just the sound of the words evokes peace. We’ve grown to love and care for an abundance of characters in the other books in Irene Hannon’s Hope Harbor romance series. We remember no one more memorable than Charlie, the omniscient purveyor of delectable fish tacos.

Dr. Logan West, an emergency room doctor, has his hands full raising his dead brother’s daughter, Molly, and a rambunctious beagle named Toby–he certainly didn’t need said beagle tearing up his next door neighbor’s lavender plants. And here he’d thought Hope Harbor would be a peaceful, quiet place for all of them.

Jeanette Mason escaped to Hope Harbor from a tragedy suffered at home. She started a tearoom and a lavender farm–she bakes delicious lavender cookies. She keeps herself busy and has no intention of getting involved with the community nor the neighbors next door.

But that dog! And Charlie, who raises questions in both Logan’s and Jeanette’s minds they can’t answer. Then there’s Molly, quiet and sad since her grandmother died. First her dad, then her grandmother–a lot of losses for such a little girl.

Add in a Syrian refugee family the town adopted, a couple of pastors, and the ubiquitous Charlie, and we’re off on another love story with bumps along the way.

Engaging characters, a good story, a peaceful setting, and mysterious Charlie draw us in for another Hope Harbor romance story. I love this romance series, and Irene Hannon certainly makes us wish the scene and the people were real. Five stars.

Revell Books gave me a copy of Driftwood Bay, but I was in no way obligated to post a review.
