Sea Rose Lane by Irene Hannon
Three-Time RITA Winner Invites Readers Back to the Captivating Coastal Town of Hope Harbor
After a devastating layoff, attorney Eric Nash heads back to the town where he grew up--only to discover that his childhood home is being transformed into a bed & breakfast. Instead of plotting his next career move in peace, he's constantly distracted by noise, chaos--and BJ Stevens, the attractive but prickly blonde architect and construction chief who's invaded the house with her motley crew.
As for BJ, her client's son might be handsome, but after a disastrous romance, dating isn't high on her agenda. Yet when they join forces to create a program for Hope Harbor seniors, might they also find healing, hope, and a new beginning themselves?
Three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon takes readers back to Hope Harbor for a new season of charm, romance, and second chances.
Sweet romance. Eric has come home after losing his job as an attorney in a big firm, only to find that it isn't what he was expecting. His childhood house is being turned into a B&B. BJ is the one who is converting the house and she and Eric don't exactly see eye to eye. BJ has come to town hiding from her broken heart. The two of them may clash but at the same time, they just WORK together and maybe each is just what the other needs.So the first meeting of Eric and BJ...yeah, priceless! I do believe I enjoyed it much more than the two of them though. I liked Eric and BJ, both were good people and both trying to work through their issues. There were some entertaining moments and problems but most of the story centers around Eric and BJ's growing relationship. I did feel that it overshadowed the actual story line but it was enjoyable to read and I absolutely want to come back to Hope Harbor!
It was a joy to read this romance. 4/5 for me. Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
