Sea Rose Lane
ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review.
Irene Hannon has done it to me again! SEA ROSE LANE captured my heart from the very first page and never let it go. The characters in Hope Harbor are quite eclectic and kept me giggling through out this wonderful story. Irene Hannon writes romantic suspense stories and yet, she totally captures the feelings of a sweet and clean romance. I love the way Ms. Hannon wraps the story around your heart so much so that you feel as if you are right there in the middle of things, crying and laughing with all the characters.
Eric has just moved back home to Hope Harbor after being laid off at a prestigious law firm where his goal was to become a partner. When he gets back home he discovers that the house is being converted into a bed and breakfast inn. Not only that but a beautiful woman, BJ, is in charge. BJ is a city girl and she recently moved to Hope Harbor after her heart was shredded. SEA ROSE LANE brings these two together, even though they rub each other wrong at first. Their story is filled with romance and some mystery, but mostly it is about making a relationship grow from the ground up.
Irene Hannon sure is the master of both genres, suspense as well as Christian romance and SEA ROSE LANE will show you exactly why. I did not read the first book in this series and had no trouble at all following this story. After finishing SEA ROSE LANE, I want to pack my bags and move to Hope Harbor. I could almost smell the tacos at Charlie’s and was smiling at Floyd and Gladys, the local seagulls. Irene Hannon is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She makes me feel so many different things while I’m reading her heart-warming stories. One minute I’m giggling and the next there is a huge lump in my throat. All of the characters are flawed in different ways, but you will find yourself cheering for them throughout the book. I can’t wait until next Spring to read the next installment of Hope Harbor when Sandpiper Cove comes out.
