Michael Hunter of Chicago drives into Hope Harbor searching for peace after the death of his wife. Although she’s been gone 18 months, he’s just now spending time on his healing. With a leave of absence from his non-profit job in Chicago, he heads to the beach town that his wife remembered fondly from her childhood. While there he befriends Anna who becomes his landlady. She, too, has grief to overcome. The female lead of the story is Tracy Campbell who struggles with her uncle and aunt to keep the family cranberry farm going. Also widowed, Tracy is afraid to love again and uses work as a way to cope. For a small town, Hope Harbor has an amazing cast of characters. I found the writing to move right along and I ended the book wanting to keep following all these great people.
Thanks to Revell for providing me an advance copy to review in my own words.
