Two time RITA Award Winner and Bestselling author Irene Hannon has done it again. Welcome to Hope Harbor, a place where there is hope for healing and love. Irene’s characters bring to life struggles that many readers can relate to in their own lives. As the plot unfolds, the many characters come to life, causing readers to sit for hours to find out what happens to these good people. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy themes of hope, healing, and love.
