Driftwood Bay by Irene Hannon ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Jeanette Mason finds refuge in Hope Harbor, putting her life back together after great tragedy. She tries to avoid emotion connection, working hard at her tea room and lavender farm. But when the neighbor's rowdy dog and little girl come crashing into her life, she begins to wonder if there is room for love again after all.

The town of Hope Harbor has joined forces and united around a Christian Syrian refugee family, and I love how the churches work together to provide for the family and help them make a new start.

Dr. Logan West is an ER doctor, used to a fast-paced on-call lifestyle. After the death of his brother and mother he takes on the raising of his young niece Molly. He takes a job in Hope Harbor, hoping that he will be able to give Molly a better life in a slower paced small town community. He struggles to connect with Molly, and give her the stability that she needs.

I love the feeling of returning to Hope Harbor and all the wonderful characters, they are a tight knit community and how they welcome a new family into their midst. I loved the new bonds of family and friendship that are forged, some of them surprising and sweet. Jeanette is afraid to open up and let love in, but she feels the Lord gently calling her out of her comfort zone.

Overall a heartwarming, compelling, and satisfying read that wrung out my heartstrings. I love the neighborly community of Hope Harbor, strong faith, and well developed characters, against a picturesque coastal town. Highly recommend!
