Pelican Point is the fourth book in the charming Hope Harbor series by beloved author Irene Hannon. Hope Harbor is a fictional coastal town in Oregon where the residents of Hope Harbor are a warm community. Having lived years on the Oregon coast myself, I really enjoyed reading the descriptions of the scenery and could easily picture this little seaside town in Oregon.
Dr. Ben Garrison comes to Hope Harbor to mourn his grandfather's death and close his estate. Much to his surprise, his grandfather left him a lighthouse badly in need of repairs. He wants to sell the light house because he is moving to Ohio to join an orthopedic practice. He meets Marci, who is the editor/owner of the town newspaper and she wants to interview him about the life of his grandfather and the lighthouse. Over the course of the story, the towns people all come together to try and find a ways to save the lighthouse for the town instead of selling it to an individual investor.
This book reminded me a lot of Jan Karon's Mitford Series that I read many years ago. It is an enjoyable read, though it didn't grab me like the other books in the Hope Harbor Series did. Though most of the characters are familiar, I just couldn't seem to connect with the characters in this story. The romance seemed too contrived to really pull me in as this authors books usually do.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
