There's a wonderful cast of secondary characters in Lexie's son Matt, her mom Annette, co-worker Luis, Charley the taco-maker, and Reverend Baker to name a few. The story wouldn't have been complete without Clyde the rescue dog, he tied the whole story together. They all added a rich layer of dialogue and understanding as to what it means to live as community in a small charming seaside town. An at-risk teen name Brian and the struggles he faced while trying to navigate high school and find acceptance as the new kid on the block was especially poignant and touching.
It doesn't happen often that all aspects of a story come together so well, but they did in Sandpiper Cove. Loyalty, commitment, friendship, encouragement, faith and love, the things of value that make life memorable, they're all there in this book.. I'll be thinking about all these wonderful characters and rereading that beautiful ending a time or two, until the next book in the series, Pelican Point, comes out next year. I'm also excited for Hannon's Code of Honor suspense series that releases this October with Dangerous Illusions.
Is Adam Stone a "damaged board"? Starting life over as an ex-convict, in a small town, is not an easy thing to do, but Adam Stone has managed to live a simple life as a responsible citizen, out of the limelight in his solitary cabin by the Oregon coastline. Until one day, the beautiful police chief shows up at his doorstep, tipped off by a local, about the recent vandalism on Stone's property and "a tiny ember of hope for a future that included more than a loyal, lovable dog for a companion began to glow in a long-dark corner of his heart".
Lexie Graham has hardly noticed Adam Stone since he arrived in Hope Harbor, and she would have remembered it if she had. Ruggedly handsome, coupled with a humble spirit, is a hard thing to forget. Acting on a hunch, Chief Graham commandeers Adam's help with one of the troubled youths proven to be a part of the local pranks, and in the process discovers a part of herself that has lain dormant since the death of her husband. "Was she ready to let go of the past and take a chance on a future that could be fraught with challenges - and change?"
This addition to Irene Hannon's "Hope Harbor" series is all about trusting God to open the door to second chances.

there's a mixture of both. Lexi is the police chief, a widowed single mum, and Adam is an ex-con looking for a fresh start. Both these characters are real, sinful people saved through the grace of God. What really excites me about this book is the ability of the author to not hide any of the difficulties or flaws in the main characters. Both of them have issues from the past but it's such a joy to watch them come to trust each other, and God, more. Lexi's son provides a few of the lighter moments in the book and the way Adam takes care of a stray abandoned dog is a subplot in itself. Grab a cuppa and settle down for a brilliant read.
