The latest book from Irene Hannon is Sea Rose Lane, another novel set in Hope Harbor. After a devastating layoff, attorney Eric Nash heads back to Hope Harbor--only to discover that his childhood home is being transformed into a bed and breakfast. Instead of plotting his next career move in peace, he's constantly distracted by noise, chaos--and BJ Stevens, the attractive but prickly blonde architect who's invaded the house with her motley crew. As for BJ, her client's son might be handsome, but after a disastrous romance, dating isn't high on her agenda. Yet when they join forces for to help Hope Harbor seniors, might they also find healing, hope, and a new beginning themselves?
I enjoyed reading the first book about Hope Harbor by Irene Hannon and I wasn't disappointed by the next book set in this location. The characters were realistic and interesting. I like that she write about strong woman. It was fun to read about a woman who is an architect, builder and general contractor. And their honest relationship was refreshing. My only disappointment with this book is that BJ talks about how she was quite overweight as a teenager. She then shares how she started to eat better and lost a lot of weight a few years ago. I would have found it even more endearing if Eric would have been interested in her even if she hadn't lost or kept off all of the weight she lost. But, despite that, it still a lovely summertime read.
