Attractive successful attorney Eric Nash, recently downsized, is returning to his peaceful childhood home to regroup. However, his father has the house under construction, fulfilling his lifelong dream of owning a B&B. Heading the construction crew is lovely "once burned, twice shy" architect BJ Stevens. There first meeting begins with a bang, literally and figuratively speaking.
Secondary characters, eighty-eight year old, Eleanor, who believes she's outlived her usefulness in life, struggling Cuban immigrant carpenter Luis and taco vendor/successful artist Charley, all contribute to a well-rounded neighbor helping neighbor storyline.
The Helping Hands project knits together all the characters in a very satisfying way. I enjoyed the underlying theme of how caring for others and community service are where true fulfillment in life is found. As much as I enjoyed Eric and BJ's touching and sweetly simmering romantic relationship, for me, Luis's survival journey to a new country and all his accompanying struggles stole the show.
Irene Hannon has written a wonderfully poignant book with a social consciousness that shouldn't be missed. My thanks to Irene and Revell publishers for providing a review copy. 4.5 stars*
I listened to the Audible version of this book. Therese Plummer is an extremely good narrator of romance stories. She does not have a wide range of male voices but I like the ones she did. Her narration keeps your attention and is done beautifully!
I highly recommend this book and the Audible version, too.

The Luis storyline was difficult, the things he has experienced was heartbreaking. But just when he is losing hope God brings people into his life to show him hope is not all lost. I was pleased with the way his story progressed and ended thanks to the intervention of Eric, BJ and Eleanor. Charley, the local artist and taco stand owner, always seem to be in the right place at the right time for each character. I was a bit surprised that Tracey wasn’t more involved in this story, it was said she was BJ’s best friend, but the two of them hardly interacted. I would have expected the two to talk more.
The theme I took away from the book is that by being willing to let go of one dream you can realize a more fulfilling dream you didn’t even know had, and that God can (and will) use all circumstances for His will. BJ expresses this exact thing when she says, “The circumstances that led me to this decision might not have been pleasant, but I do see God’s hand in the outcome.” Overall I enjoyed these characters and the way the story progressed, I was very pleased with the ending.
