I never tire of visiting Hope Harbor through the pages of Irene Hannon’s wonderful series. It’s hard to believe that Sea Glass Cottage is book number eight. It makes me happy to know that there will be even more books upcoming in this series. I would be delighted if the series never ended.

Charlie and his taco stand are the one thing I always anticipate when opening one of the Hope Harbor series. His insight and wisdom are always so on point that one might wonder if he is actually an angel whose seagull friends also add their own special touch.

Sea Glass Cottage is yet another winner in which two hurting and estranged people are given another chance at love. As always there are hurdles they must overcome and a few surprises along their tangled path but faith and forgiveness always wins.

If you have not read any of the books in this series, Sea Glass Cottage is a good place to begin. Join Christi and Jack as they renew their acquaintance and discover the plans God had for their lives. I suspect you will want to read the rest of the series too.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


When painful pasts collide, can love overcome heartache–and triumph despite the odds?

Christi Reece is desperate. The one-time golden girl’s life has tarnished, and a cascade of setbacks has left her reeling. She needs help, and she’s certain Jack Colby is in a position to provide it.

When she shows up in Hope Harbor, however, Jack wants nothing to do with the woman who betrayed him. He’s built a new life on the Oregon coast–and there’s no room in it for Christi, even after she takes refuge in a charming but mysterious cottage nearby. Yet it soon becomes apparent his opinion of her may need revising . . . especially when he ends up needing her help.

Can these two hurting souls open their hearts to a new beginning?

Come home to Hope Harbor–where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
