This story of romance and suspense takes place in coastal Oregon. In fact reading this story makes me want to travel to Oregon. It seems very inviting!

Katherine Parker seems to have it all but is not satisfied, is certainly not happy. Searching for something. she travels to Hope Harbor hoping she will find peace of mind and spirit.

Follow Katherine as a chance meeting with coffee shop owner, Zach Garrret turn into friendship. Zach has had some real trauma in his life but has found his spot and plans to keep it that way.
