Three-Time RITA Winner Invites Readers Back to the Captivating Coastal Town of Hope Harbor 

After a devastating layoff, attorney Eric Nash heads back to the town where he grew up--only to discover that his childhood home is being transformed into a bed & breakfast. Instead of plotting his next career move in peace, he's constantly distracted by noise, chaos--and BJ Stevens, the attractive but prickly blonde architect and construction chief who's invaded the house with her motley crew.

As for BJ, her client's son might be handsome, but after a disastrous romance, dating isn't high on her agenda. Yet when they join forces to create a program for Hope Harbor seniors, might they also find healing, hope, and a new beginning themselves?

Three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon takes readers back to Hope Harbor for a new season of charm, romance, and second chances.

My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, SEA ROSE LANE is the second book in Ms. Hannon's Hope Harbor series, but it easily stands alone but fans will want to read Hope Harbor, the first book in the series by the same name. 

BJ was prickly at first and I didn't think I would like her, but she did soften up considerably as the story progressed. I like her heart toward the elderly and the down-trodden and how she wanted to give them hope. 

The taco man was just something else. One can't help but love him. 

Eric is floundering, losing a job (downsizing) that he'd planned on for the long haul. He comes home to find out his dad is turning the family home into a bed and breakfast and has taken cooking classes, and well, then there's the hot woman in charge of the project... He also had a heart for the hurting. I liked him considerably. 

Fans of romance will devour this new one by Ms. Hannon. Don't miss Sea Rose Lane. It will touch your heart--in more than one way.

I'm a big fan of Hannon's suspense novels, but have not really gotten into her contemporary yet. I will have to check this one out for sure.
