"Hope Harbor," by Irene Hannon
Tracy Campbell never wanted to leave Hope Harbor, Oregon, or the idyllic three-generation cranberry farm where she grew up. But life--and love--altered her plans. Now she's home again--with a floundering farm to run . . . a tragic secret . . . and a wounded heart. Romance is on her agenda.
Nor is it on Michael Hunter's. The visitor from Chicago has daunting secrets and devastating regrets of his own. But when Tracy recruits him to help with a project that is close to her heart, winds of change begin to sweep through Hope Harbor, bringing healing, hope, and love to countless lives--including their own.
I am a fan of Irene's books; however they are normally romantic suspense novels, so this for me was a change as this is strictly a romance novel. Yes there were some "secrets" that have to be uncovered but overall it was a romance. Tracy and Michael were prefect as the lead characters. Also I liked how the "God works in mysterious ways," theme was woven in the story.
I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and it was quite clear that was happening throughout this story. It's no surprise how this novel ended. If I had one complaint, it was that there was no recipe for the Cranberry Nut Cake. After reading about it, I would have loved to make it!
Stars out of 5 : 4 An easy read, well worth reading. A good book to while away an afternoon or two. Loved the description of Hope Harbor and would love to visit it, if it exists!
