Blackberry Beach - yet another setting in Hope Harbor where we all enjoy visiting through Irene Hannon’s gifted writing! She gives such great description and depth in the settings (whether it’s the beach, the town, or inside a home) that it’s easy to be there! The characters are not perfect which makes them easily relatable. There aren’t trite plot lines or unbelievable relationships. The “truth” is presented by Charley Lopez, the wise one who dispenses fish tacos while helping nudge his customers towards truth and hope without being at all preachy. This book, as the others in the Hope Harbor series, can stand alone, and was hard to put down. Even if you haven’t visited Hope Harbor in a previous book, you’ll enjoy Blackberry Beach.
