Katherine Parker is on the cusp of having everything she ever wanted–fame, money, and acclaim. So why isn’t she happy? In search of answers, she comes incognito to Hope Harbor on the Oregon coast for some R&R. Maybe in her secluded rental house overlooking the serene Pacific she’ll be able to calm the storm inside.
Coffee shop owner Zach Garrett has found his niche after a traumatic loss–and he has no plans to change the life he’s created. Nor does he want to get involved with his reticent new neighbor, whose past is shrouded in mystery. He’s had enough drama to last a lifetime. But when Katherine and Zach are recruited to help rehab a home for foster children, sparks fly. And as their lives begin to intersect, might they find more common ground than they expected . . . and discover that, with love, all things are possible?
Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites you to come home to Hope Harbor–where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
Blackberry Beach is a sweet romance novel set in Hope Harbor. It is the seventh book in the series and many characters from past books make appearances. But don’t worry, it can be read as a stand alone. It won’t take long to be drawn into the charming seaside town and all that comes with it. The setting alone will keep you reading! The characters are not rushed, but carefully developed. Not just the primary characters, but the secondary characters are equally important. The relationship that develops between two “mature” characters was a highlight in my opinion. Authors tend to write storylines around younger romances, so this caught my attention! Irene Hannon has a way of writing that pulls you in and you become a part of the story. If you are looking to get lost in a book, Blackberry Beach will be just the right fit!
