About the Book
Nevertheless, when Lexie enlists Adam's help to keep a young man from falling into a life of crime, sparks begin to fly. And as they work together, it soon becomes apparent that God may have a different--and better--future planned for them than either could imagine.
Lauded by Library Journal as "a master at character development," Irene Hannon welcomes readers back to this charming Oregon seaside village where hearts heal--and love blooms."

A romance between a police chief and an ex-con?! Y'all, I really have no words to tell you how powerful this story is. I mean WOW!
The premise its self was enough for me to curl up with this book and a blanket. Lexie has a painful past, having lost a spouse. She's a single mother who lives with her mom and polices the streets of Hope Harbor.
I wanted to be Lexie's friend. Who wouldn't? She has so many hats to wear as a woman and she does it with grace. Yet, her heart was closed off to God and the love that was waiting for her. I loved her character, yet surprisingly not as much as Adam's.
Adam is an AWESOME hero! Y'all, he may be one of my favorites in the quiet, yet filled with strength department. He's very much aware of his sins and his past. Unfortunately, he doesn't want to leave them there. I ached for poor Adam. I read this book and just wanted to give him a hug or tell him it gets better. Thankfully, Lexie figured out what he needed. ;)
Y'all, this book was all kinds of sweetness filled with the heartwarming grace of God and the sparks of good ol' love. Read it and enjoy Ms. Hannon's gift for weaving a believable romantic tale of love.
*Thanks to my local library for feeding my TBR pile. This review is my own, honest opinion.
