Deb’s Dozen: Two Couples, Both Separated by Tragedy, Who Find Healing in Hope Harbor
Irene Hannon’s Hope Harbor series ranks as one of my favorites. I’m inclined to start any of the novels with great anticipation. Sea Glass Cottage fulfilled my desires for another wonderful love story set in the peaceful seaside town. Favorite characters return—Charley, the resident taco chef, artist, and philosopher; the dueling clerics, Father Murphy and Reverend Baker; and, of course, the almost human seagull pair, Floyd and Gladys.
Christi Reece arrived in Hope Harbor hoping to find what she considers her last resort—Jack Colby, whose heart she broke eleven years before. Jack, now a policeman, could care less about Christi and wants nothing to do with her … or does he?
Beth Adams befriends Christi, who learns Beth also suffers a broken heart from the loss of her son and her estrangement from her husband, Steve. She hires Christi part time to work in her gift shop, Eye of the Beholder.
And then, as always, Charley enters the lives of both women … and both men, and life in Hope Harbor gets interesting for all four people.
Hannon writes the most interesting characters and invents the most interesting circumstances for them to be involved in. Having Hope Harbor for a setting adds to the charm of the star-crossed, but sun-blessed romances. Another five star read, and, as Irene would say …
Come home to Hope Harbor—where hearts heal … and love blooms

Baker Books gave me access to a NetGalley copy of Sea Glass Cottage but in no way obligated me to write a review.
