Sea Rose Lane #2, in the Hope Harbor, Irene Hannon
It all started with a crash…a crash of vehicles and a crash of hearts in need of healing. One heart belongs to recently out-of-work attorney Eric Nash. The other is the heart of an architect – BJ Stevens – who is in desperate want of a change in her life. The lovely coast of Sea Rose Lane is exactly the right place for them to come together, a charming spot where many things will be mended.

GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Food for ThoughtAugust 9, 2016GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A wonderful Christian romance with a lot of food for thought. I enjoyed going back to visit Hope Harbor again. I found my mouth watering every time someone went to Charleys for an order of fish tacos. Frankly I have rebelled at the idea of fish tacos since the first time I saw them listed on a menu, but Irene Hannon makes them sound so delicious. Now if I could only find Charleys so I could taste test them, I might change my mind. Actually there seems to be several people changing their minds in the story. BJ has lived in Hope Harbor for a year after deciding living in the big city and working as a high-paid architect was just not the life she wanted. Eleanor discovers how she has held people at arms-length and realizes some changes are in order. Eric has returned to his hometown to regroup after the law firm where he worked sixty-hour weeks in an effort to become a partner made the decision to downsize. His is the main story line as he begins to struggle with his feelings for a beautiful architect, his desire to continue pursuing his career path, and his renewed interest in painting pictures. Like most of us, he wants it all but can he have it all? How can he work sixty hours a week, paint, and pursue the young woman? Is it realistic to even think he can? Does he need to change his thinking? I recommend this book especially for anyone who is struggling to find direction in life. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Although it is the second novel in the Hope Harbor series, it is unnecessary to read the books in sequence. I truly liked all of the characters in this book; they seemed to be more cognizant of the needs of others rather than dwelling on their own problems and whether or not they were part of a couple. There are many single people in this romance who are loving life and being involved in this wonderful community on the Oregon Coast. I must mention Charley, the artist and taco stand master, who seems to be more intuitive than most and gives even the reader a feeling of serenity. Also, there is a belching white seal who interrupts the most romantic moments between BJ and Eric. Nice summer read!
ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Delightfully writtenJuly 25, 2016ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was captured in the tale Irene Hannon wove in Sea Rose Lane. The story of successful attorney, Eric Nash, and beautiful architect, BJ Stephens. Thrown together in unlikely circumstances, they have a common thread between them, concern for others.
Both BJ and Eric could easily bury themselves in their own interests and hurts but two lonely individuals and the wonderfully intuitive taco maker, Charlie, help them see beyond themselves and feed their desire to help. I loved the romance that develops between Eric and BJ as it happens in a progressive way thats not overly done.
The battle that Eric faces with his ambition versus his desires are wonderfully captured.
Ms. Hannon writes such wonderfully descriptive words that it made the location and characters come to life. By far, my favorite character was Casper. Though his part is small, he made me smile.
My favorite quote in the book: Changing a life for the better is a wonderful deed, but brightening someones day, adding a touch of joy when a person might need it mostthat, too, has great merit. And everyone can do that. (pg. 177)
I enjoyed the story, and found in to be a happy getaway type of book. Sea Rose Lane is a delightful addition to the Hope Harbor Series. Though it is the second book in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone novel.
I received this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion which Ive provided here.

And to add insult to injury, he arrives at his childhood home only to discover his dad is turning the place into a bed and breakfast. And worst of all? The architect is that same feisty blonde!
The place he had come to for peace is instead chaotic. Hes constantly distracted by the noise and, to be honest, the architect, BJ Stevens, and her disreputable-looking work crew. What is a guy to do?

While Eric lived in Hope Harbor previously, he had taken painting lessons from Charley. As they begin to talk, Eric finds out Charley isnt as rich as he had thought. When he asks Charley what he would do if his paintings stopped selling, Charley smiles and says, Sell more tacos. There are always options. One lesson Ive learnedworry doesnt change tomorrow, it only robs today of its joy.
BJ has found herself surrounded by needy peoplethe guys in her crew, the older lady she often helpsshes involved with Helping Hands, a town program to help those in need. BJ has a vision for a program to help the elderly but keeps running into obstacles.
BJ and Eric continually cross paths, and Eric finds himself drawn into her life and the lives of those in her crew as well as those she helps. Will he head back to a career in law? Or will he stay in Hope Harbor to find love and meaning?
Sea Rose Lane brings back many of the people introduced in Hope Harbor. I must confess, I am drawn in by the town Irene has created along with the quirky characters. Sea Rose Lane did not disappoint. Youll love how BJ and Eric interact and how they end up entwined in the lives of the townspeople. You, like I, will want to return to Hope Harbor again. Four Starsa very entertaining read.
