Another Winning Novel From Three Time Rita Award Winner, Irene Hannon!

       "Sea Rose Lane"
       By Irene Hannon

Synopsis: Once again back in Hope Harbor....

After a devastating layoff, attorney Eric Nash heads back to the town where he grew up--only to discover that his childhood home is being transformed into a bed & breakfast. Instead of plotting his next career move in peace, he's constantly distracted by noise, chaos--and BJ Stevens, the attractive but prickly blonde architect and construction chief who's invaded the house with her motley crew.

As for BJ, her client's son might be handsome, but after a disastrous romance, dating isn't high on her agenda. Yet when they join forces to create a program for Hope Harbor seniors, might they also find healing, hope, and a new beginning themselves?

Three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon takes readers back to Hope Harbor for a new season of charm, romance, and second chances.

My Thoughts:

The setting of this book is peaceful and serene, a place where I would love to be! The charming , seaside town of Hope Harbor exhibits a typical, small town atmosphere, one that a person tends to either love, as I do, or hate, because of course, in a small town, secrets become gossip! In other words, there are few things that your neighbors don't know! 

Ms Hannon has an exceptional talent in describing her characters in such realistic detail, that  you can immediately identify with them. The issues of self worth, the aging process, immigration and most importantly, second chances , are all sensitively addressed. The hope that follows all the obstacles that seem to suddenly appear as mountains in the way of progress , is one of which we all need to be reminded. The reader can feel the despair of the characters as they make their way down this winding road. 

The plot is extremely interesting being told from different points of view. As I read this book, there were times when my heart was in my throat!!! I could NOT put the book down. The unexpected twists and turns had me rethinking constantly of what would eventually happen . 
The underlying theme that is evident throughout the book gives the reader hope for the future. The answer to a successful and happy life lies in one's relationship with the Lord and the hope that that brings to one's soul. There are second chances!! God offers them willingly to us, but we have to allow HIm to take control and do it in HIS time not our's!

 Definitely a five star book!! Irene Hannon has written another winning novel!
