About the Book:
After a devastating layoff, attorney Eric Nash heads back to the town where he grew up–only to discover that his childhood home is being transformed into a bed & 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 and construction chief 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 to create a program for Hope Harbor seniors, might they also find healing, hope, and a new beginning themselves?
Three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon takes readers back to Hope Harbor for a new season of charm, romance, and second chances.
I have enjoyed Irene Hannon’s contemporary books, as well as her suspense books. This series is a really nice, easy going, change over. The tidbits of real life, guilt and how it affects each of the characters lives made this a winner.
Plus, you will be totally craving tacos when you are done, hopefully with mango salsa. Charley’s Tacos really should come out with a recipe book. I don’t even like fish tacos, but I found my mouth watering over the simple descriptions of the flavorful tacos, slaw and salsa.
Overall, I loved the immigration twist that Ms. Hannon threw in. It was really informative on the inside, without being “preachy” or “in your face”. Charley was one of my favorite sub characters, but of course, I loved the story that carried through with helping the elderly throughout as well.
I received this book for review from NetGalley and the publisher. The opinions contained herein are my own.
