Pelican Point by Irene Hannon
About the book:
A crumbling lighthouse is not part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career.
Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home–and she’s determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.
Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?
Bestselling author Irene Hannon invites readers back to their favorite town for a story that will light a beacon of hope within their hearts.
Irene Hannon’s suspense novels are always a fun and intriguing read. It’s because I like those so well that I’ve been willing to try her other novels. And while this one isn’t suspense, it was still quite interesting and charming in it’s own right.
Main characters Ben and Marci have sparks right from their first meeting. Although, you might say, they didn’t quite hit it off with each other immediately. No, they got off on the wrong foot.
But then they start over and the romantic sparks start flying…
Without giving any spoilers, I’ll just say this is a poignantly sweet story. I’m always a sucker for lighthouses, (especially old ones – like this one) and stories about them….and this one meets that criteria perfectly.
A light, easy, sweet, read, full of life and fun characters and a beautiful setting. All-in-all, a delightful story.
