Hope Harbor police chief Lexie Graham has plenty on her plate raising her son alone and dealing with a sudden rash of petty theft and vandalism in her coastal Oregon hometown. As a result, she has zero time for extracurricular activities–including romance. Ex-con Adam Stone isn’t looking for love either–but how ironic is it that the first woman to catch his eye is a police chief? Yet wishing for things that can never be is foolish.
Nevertheless, when Lexie enlists Adam’s help to keep a young man from falling into a life of crime, sparks begin to fly. And as they work together, it soon becomes apparent that God may have a different–and better–future planned for them than either could imagine.
Lexie Graham, single mom and police chief, is flummoxed. A rash of vandalism in an otherwise crime-free area has her wondering what’s going on in her beautiful Oregon hometown of Hope Harbor.
Adam Stone is an ex-convict and seems to be the target of many of the acts of vandalism. Is he the perpetrator and just trying to throw everyone off his trail?
Irene Hannon has written a captivating story of life in small town Americana. Her story is richly detailed with a wonderful cast of characters whom you come to love as you get to know them. She undeniably understands the meanings of small-town life, friendship and faith. Her story resonates deeply with all three. In addition, she examines redemption and second chances.
Sandpiper Cove has a deep underlying tone of Christianity and belief, genuinely illustrated by many of the residents of Hope Harbor. I enjoyed the dynamics between the different town’s people and their neighbors. I think I would enjoy being a town member myself, especially since it’s near water!
Sandpiper Cove: A Hope Harbor Novel is the last in a series. However, each book is written in such a way as to be a standalone.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from LibraryThing. I was under no obligation to post a review.
