C Reviews: Pelican Point by Irene Hannon

Series: Hope Harbour # 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Revell
Released: April 3, 2018
369 pages
About the Book:
A crumbling lighthouse is not part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career.

Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home--and she's determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.

Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?


My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟    (5 stars) 

I fell in love with the Hope Harbor series with the first book, and I always love re-visiting Hope Harbor with each new addition to this series. Pelican Point lived up to my expectations in so many ways. I always smile when we meet back up with Charlie, a favorite character from each book of this series. The community of Hope Harbor is brought to life with realistic characters. This series could be read out of order, however I would recommend starting at the beginning of the series as we do meet characters featured in previous books.
 
When I read the Hope Harbor series books, I am transported to a charming community along the Oregon Coast with stunning ocean views and the smell of the ocean in the air, where people stop on the street to say hello and know each other by name. Where you can stop down at the Harbor and pick up a fish taco and have a meaningful conversation with Charlie. This community is brought to life with realistic characters, a little bit of conflict to give just enough suspense at times.
 
Ben and Marci’s story made me laugh and smile. Their first few meetings did not go well and that set up some interesting first impressions of each other. I enjoyed seeing them work through the baggage from each of their pasts that was getting in their way.
 
The storyline that really captivated me was Greg and Rachel. I loved the reconciliation and amount of recovery that Greg makes in his personal life and the reconciliation in their marriage. Their story was filled with so much realistic emotion as we watch them navigate the difficulties of life and the effects of on their marriage. I liked how faith was an important part of their reconciliation.
 
(I received a complimentary eARC of this book from Revell through NetGalley.
Opinions expressed in this review are my honest opinion and completely my own.)
