The tales from Hope Harbor continue in her newest story from Revell Publishers entitled “Blackberry Beach”, where a soul-searching actress and a lonely coffee shop owner discover the magic of this special spot on the Oregon coast.Continue reading
Each spring I look forward to warmer weather, more time outdoors, and a new book in Irene Hannon’s “Hope Harbor” saga! “Starfish Pier” is actually the sixth book in this heartwarming series, and it feels like returning to a beloved hometown as we once more walk the streets of this Oregon community, smelling the mouth-watering aroma of Charlie’s fish tacos and waving at old friends from previous stories.

Whenever I finish reading the latest (and always much-anticipated) “Hope Harbor” novel, I close the book feeling refreshed. . . As though I just spent a vacation in a favorite place, a place where you know everybody’s story, and where the words “Come home to Hope Harbor – Where hearts heal . . . and love blooms” ring so true. Irene Hannon’s newest installment of the beloved “Hope Harbor” series (now numbering at five, and with more to come!!) is entitled “Driftwood Bay”. This sweet novel of healing and new beginnings tells an original tale with all new characters, though cameo appearances by many of our old friends are regular occurrences, too. Continue reading
It’s the time of year I’ve come to anticipate for four years in a row… when we can grab a cup of tea, find a shady spot in the backyard, and take the journey to the sweet little (fictional) town of Hope Harbor, “where hearts heal . . . and love blooms”! The newest installment in Irene Hannon’s beloved, ongoing, contemporary romance series from Revell is “Pelican Point”, and brings us the story of two unlikely people brought together in a quest to save a town landmark – a lighthouse – and perhaps find healing for their hearts at the same time.

It doesn’t really matter if you read the books out of order, but many characters do recur in each novel and it is enjoyable to watch their continuing stories unfold in the background.
