This book won't be the last I read of hers, that is for sure. "Hope Harbor" is a contemporary romance, full of tension and excitement. I loved every single thing about it, especially the fact that it is a clean romance novel. (Thank you, Irene, for that!!)
I loved learning of Michael and Tracy's stories, and those of the other Hope Harbor residents. It is a love story, yes, but also holds stories of deep forgiveness. I am fairly sure this is going to be a series and I certainly hope so, because I am hooked and I want more!!!

Its my week for Irene Hannonand a switch from suspense/mystery to straight romanceand Irene satisfies both needs. She is equally facile in both genres.
Michael Hunter, a recent widower, drives from Chicago to Hope Harbor to honor a promise to his wife. She loved Hope Harbor and wanted him to feel the same. When he arrives, tired and hungry, to his surprise, the hotel where he had reservations is closed. Finally, turning on the cell phone hed shut off for peace and quiet, he found several messages from the proprietor trying to advise him of their closing. She finds him a room in nearby Coos Baya disappointing turn of events for Michael.
Following a near disaster after almost bumping into a bicycle carrying a beautiful young woman, which crashes avoiding him, he slumps on a bench in the town gathering area, and attempts to regroupHope Harbor definitely doesnt seem to offer him hope. A reclusive woman, Anna Williams, sees him sitting there as she orders her lunch from Charley Lopez fish taco stand. Neither recognizes the stranger on the bench. Charley sends Anna over to Michael with a bag of tacos and a note. As Anna sits next to him, she is shocked to realize he looks almost exactly like her estranged son, John.
The bicyclist, Tracy Campbell, loves Hope Harbor. She has been working overtime to try to keep her late parents business, Harbor Point Cranberries, solvent. In addition to part-time work as a CPA, she also volunteers many hours at Helping Hands. Crashing because of the clumsy stranger was not on her agenda for the day.
Hope Harbor is a wonderful, well-written story of triumph overcoming lifes tragedies; a heart-warming tale of people who are believable and lovable characters, albeit carrying deep secrets. I loved Michael and Anna and Tracy and Charley Lopez. You will too. Four stars and well-worth the pleasurable read.

She is the seven-time nominee and three-time winner of the RITA Award from the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and is a member of the RWA Hall of Fame.

GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Never Lose HopeDecember 11, 2015GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love reading books that draw me in and make me wish I was there. This book and the small fictional town of Hope Harbor did that for me. It would be so awesome to visit a place like Hope Harbor. The first time I heard of fish tacos about four years ago, I was not interested. If I could go to Hope Harbor right now and get an order of fish tacos at Charleys, thats where I would be headed. The author made them sound so appetizing. That was just a small part of the appeal of the book. Often the hero and heroine of a book have hurts and pain from the past. They werent the only ones this time. It seemed that the hurts and struggles of some of the other characters helped Tracy and Michael in dealing with their own, or possibly it prodded them to have renewed hope. I enjoyed the way Irene Hannon wove her faith throughout the story and how it played into the lives of the various characters. This is a beautiful story of Christianity in action. I recommend it especially to anyone who needs to jumpstart their hope.
Jess88Age: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Book!November 5, 2015Jess88Age: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0My Take:
This is the first book of Irene Hannon's that I've read and I loved it, I can't wait to read more from this author!
Micheal and Tracy were both great characters in this book I liked how they were so willing to help people and it was really sweet to watch them overcome their pasts and find a second chance at love. I also really liked Anne's character and I loved how Michael helped her come out of her shell/isolation. And the setting was perfect. Oregon is beautiful! reading this book brought back memories of a vacation my family took there and even though the town of Hope Harbor is fictional it seems to fit perfectly. The part I loved most of all was the strong message of forgiveness and second chances throughout the book. All of the main characters had hurts and mistakes in their pasts and it was awesome to see how God worked through each of their lives to bring them to a place of healing and love. Everything about this book was wonderful! I can't wait to visit Hope Harbor again in book two!
