How important can one old lighthouse be? Ex-Army surgeon Major Ben Garrison thinks it’s an eyesore, a burden he’s inherited and can’t wait to trade off. But Marci Weber, editor of the Hope Harbor Herald, holds a very different view. To her, Pelican Point is a landmark that must be saved. It’s a clash of heads – and hearts – as the fate of the lighthouse hangs in the balance.

Series: Hope Harbor
Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home--and she's determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.
Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?
Bestselling author Irene Hannon invites readers back to their favorite town for a story that will light a beacon of hope within their hearts.
crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Nice but not fantasticApril 18, 2018crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Marci Weber has been a background character in the Hope Harbor series for a while now as the editor of the town newspaper, the Hope Harbor Herald. Ben Garrison is new to town. He's just finished up his military service as a battlefield surgeon and will be heading to Chicago to join a prestigious practice but first he stops in Hope Harbor to settle his grandfather's estate. Surprise! He's inherited a lighthouse! It's not in great shape, it's not famous and it's proving hard to sell. When he finally gets a bite on it, the town is galvanized into action by Marci to try to save it from falling victim to a new development.
This is the story of Ben and Marci, but it's interwoven with a couple named Greg and Rachel as well. I found that slightly frustrating as I wasn't nearly as interested in them as Ben and Marci and the characters from previous books. The birds, and if you've read the series you'll know who I mean, are featured a little too predominantly for me but they are a cute touch.
This has been such a great series, and out of this wonderful series I'm sorry to say that this book is my least favourite so far. It was enjoyable but nothing really stood out. It's still worth reading if you are reading the series.

Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Pelican PointApril 18, 2018Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My thoughts: PELICAN POINT is the fourth book in Ms. Hannon's Hope Harbor series, but it easily stands alone. This book features two relatively newcomers to Hope Harbor, one Army surgeon who came to settle his grandfather's estate and a newspaper editor who tends to get a little emotional.
In Ms. Hannon's stellar storytelling, I was instantly drawn into the story, in love with both Marcy and Ben, not to mention the secondary characters I've grown to love in the previous stories: the two feuding--but best friends--ministers, Charlie the fish taco guy, Floyd and his "wife", as well as new to the scene Rachel and her husband Greg.
Heart-thumping romance, a stalker (though nothing near Hannon's suspense), secrets, and a save the lighthouse campaign are enough to keep the pages turning, and for this book to go on my keeper shelf.
I *love* this series! Hannon is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors and also one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. I can't wait for my next visit to Hope Harbor--in Spring 2019.

KatrinaWestern KyAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful StoryApril 17, 2018KatrinaWestern KyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a well written book and it makes me want to visit Hope Harbor. It has a sweet plot that immediately pulled me it. It includes elements of mystery, intrigue, humor, grief, love, and faith. The characters are both engaging and endearing to me. I could see myself sitting on a bench having a conversation with both. The setting is both realistic and perceptive so it captured both time and place for me. The character is this entire series that intrigues me the most is Charley and is scrumptious food. I have never had a fish taco, but would definitely try one of his while getting some life advice from him.
This is a book I would recommend to anyone who love a good, clean read. It touches on the tough subject of PTSD, but I think it is written with a realistic view. I received this book from the publisher as part of their book bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Bekah5 Stars Out Of 5LOVE Returning to Hope Harbor!April 16, 2018BekahQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love Irene Hannon's writing. I love her Hope Harbor series. So when book four arrived in my mailbox a few days ago, I did an extra-happy happy dance. Add to it that this book involves a lighthouse and a writer - and clearly you can see why my literary world was nearly complete.
If you've never read any of this series before, let me catch you up, okay? This series is set in in the Pacific Northwest - in the little dreamy burg of Hope Harbor. It's the kind of place you wish you could visit in real life because it's so darling. Small enough that all the neighbors know each other, tranquil coastal atmosphere, and the kind of place where folks come to let their hearts heal after hurt and loss.
There are fixtures in Hope Harbor, like the quirky artist/taco stand owner named Charlie - and even a pair of sea gulls that seem to show up in each book. But there are also new stories to be found every time.
In the fourth installment of the series, Pelican Point, Ben Garrison arrives in town for his grandfather's funeral. Ned was dearly loved by the entire community, and they all welcome his army doctor grandson who traveled halfway around the world to say goodbye. Ned and Ben were the last two of their family, so Ben needs to stay a few weeks to settle his grandfather's affairs and clean out his somewhat cluttered house.
Upon arriving in town, Ben learns his grandfather had purchased a lighthouse just outside Hope Harbor. Ned had always loved that lighthouse, and Ben has fond memories of it too, from his childhood visits. Unfortunately Ned's health and bank account hadn't permitted him to restore it to its full glory, and now Ben has to figure out how to unload a handyman's special of a lighthouse before he can move on to the next chapter of his life.
When Marci Weber, the town's newspaper editor, hears that the lighthouse is on the market, her heart sinks. She didn't grow up in Hope Harbor, but it has become home to her in her adult life, and she can't imagine some outsider coming in to purchase the lighthouse only to neglect it - or worse - tear it down.
Ben and Marci butt heads over the fate of the lighthouse, but Marci is convinced if she can get Ben on board with her budding plan, they can turn this debacle into a win for everyone, including the town!
Filled with small-town flavor, a little suspense, and a perfect dose of romance, Pelican Point did not disappoint. I almost cringed when I reached the final chapter, fearing I had reached the final chapter for the town I love so much. But tucked in the very back of the book is the promise of another book due next spring!
I've already started the happy dance.

Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Good Contemporary StoryApril 16, 2018Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Pelican Point, by Irene Hannon, is a contemporary romance set in Hope Harbor on the Oregon coast. Army doctor Ben Garrison has returned to Hope Harbor following the death of his grandfather. He is also freshly retired from the military and is planning to join a friend's medical practice. He plans to take care of his grandfather's estate before moving into the practice.
Marci Weber has been living in Hope Harbor for just a couple years. She came to Hope Harbor to take care of her aunt's estate, but this small town quickly became her home, a safe place to start over.
As Ben receives an offer for the sale of his grandfather's light house, Marci leads a group to find a way to save the light house.
This is a good story to curl up with and just get lost in. While it is a romance, it is not over the top and contains suspense as well. The story line is very good with not to many characters. The theme of forgiveness and moving on is very strong in this story. Not only are Ben and Marci starting new lives, but Ben's neighbor is trying to move on with his life following an injury while deployed. One of the things I enjoyed most about this story is the caring community members and how they come together to help.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing. This is my honest review.
