Hope Harbor

Hope Harbor: A Novel 

by Irene Hannon


July 7, 2015

  • ISBN-13: 978-0800724528
  • Genre: Women's Fiction
Come home to Hope Harbor--where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.

Tracy Campbell never wanted to leave Hope Harbor, Oregon, or the idyllic three-generation cranberry farm where she grew up. But life--and love--altered her plans. Now she's home again--with a floundering farm to run . . . a tragic secret . . . and a wounded heart. Romance is not on her agenda. Nor is it on Michael Hunter's. The visitor from Chicago has daunting secrets and devastating regrets of his own. But when Tracy recruits him to help with a project that is close to her heart, winds of change begin to sweep through Hope Harbor, bringing healing, hope, and love to countless lives--including their own.

My thoughts: HOPE HARBOR is a lot slower than Ms. Hannon's trademark romantic suspense, and in this particular book, the sexual tension is almost nonexistent. There is a romance, but no sparks. The main story seems to be how Michael Hunter comes to town in search of peace and hope for his own life, but ends up offering it to everyone else. 

Anna is an older character in this book who is estranged from her son, she benefited the most from knowing Michael as her life transforms greatly. But is it enough to end twenty years of silence? 

I mostly enjoyed this book. I read it in one sitting, so it held my interest. It was just slow and I would've liked the usual Irene Hannon helping of sexual tension. 4.5 stars. 

Available in paperback, ebook, and audio. 352 pages. 

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
