Blackberry Beach


"Whatever her issues ... however much she might need a friend ... Kat wasn't taking the hand he was extending, despite his repeated attempts to breach the wall Charley had mentioned and his own soul-baring today."

Traveling back to Hope Harbor is always a delight. And for Katherine Parker, hiding incognito, it is a place of rest. Questioning her career, she rents a cottage on Blackberry Beach, seeking a slower pace and time to reflect. 

Coffee shop owner, Zach Garrett has made his escape from his own power house madness. And after a life changing loss, values each day as worth while.

I love revisiting Hope Harbor and all the characters that make this little town special.  The sea gulls, the sparing ministers, and of course Charley and his famous Taco food truck. I really enjoyed getting to know Zach. I think he is the hero of this story. There is a second story going on here as well. Aunt Stephanie and Frank make an interesting more mature couple that fill an avenue of romance that is not always addressed in fiction. 

Although this is the 7th book about Hope Harbor, it definitely can be read as a stand alone book. It is a nice clean romance, with humor and the struggles of life. Well written and engaging, Irene Hannon once again brought us a heartwarming story about second chances.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Revell. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
