In the midst of life's storms, unexpected love is a beacon of hope.

A crumbling lighthouse is not part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career.

Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home--and she's determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.

Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?

Bestselling author Irene Hannon invites readers back to their favorite town for a story that will light a beacon of hope within their hearts.

My thoughts: PELICAN POINT is the fourth book in Ms. Hannon's Hope Harbor series, but it easily stands alone. This book features two relatively newcomers to Hope Harbor, one Army surgeon who came to settle his grandfather's estate and a newspaper editor who tends to get a little emotional.

In Ms. Hannon's stellar storytelling, I was instantly drawn into the story, in love with both Marcy and Ben, not to mention the secondary characters I've grown to love in the previous stories: the two feuding--but best friends--ministers, Charlie the fish taco guy, Floyd and his "wife", as well as new to the scene Rachel and her husband Greg. 

Heart-thumping romance, a stalker (though nothing near Hannon's suspense), secrets, and a save the lighthouse campaign are enough to keep the pages turning, and for this book to go on my keeper shelf.  

I *love* this series!  Hannon is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors and also one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. I can't wait for my next visit to Hope Harbor--in Spring 2019.

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
