Introduction

Title: Pelican Point (A Hope Harbor Novel)

Author: Irene Hannon

Publisher: Revell

Publication Date: 2018

Format: Paperback

Length: 345 pages

OVERVIEW

When Dr. Ben Garrison inherits a lighthouse from his grandfather, his immediate plans are to sell it and his grandfather’s house and be on his way to Ohio to a new medical practice and a new life after being discharged from the service. Hope Harbor’s passionate citizens for saving the light present a small stumbling block but a feisty red headed editor of the local paper really makes him change his plans. Both Ben and Marci have some secrets in their past. Can they get beyond them? Are there dangers that will keep them from being together?

This is a sweet romance with a little suspense added in, actually romance between two couples in two totally different situations.

If you have not read any other book in the Hope Harbor Series, this is really a read alone story. If you have read others, you will be delighted to see Charley again, the taco making painter, and his friends the seagulls.

Although there is certainly a Christian world view in this book, the reader will not find a strong Christian message.
