Sandpiper Cove by Irene Hannon

Sandpiper Cove: Hope Harbor police chief Lexie Graham has plenty on her plate raising her son alone and dealing with a sudden rash of petty theft and vandalism in her coastal Oregon hometown. As a result, she has zero time for extracurricular activities--including romance. Ex-con Adam Stone isn't looking for love either--but how ironic is it that the first woman to catch his eye is a police chief? Yet wishing for things that can never be is foolish.

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.

Heidi here. I've thoroughly enjoyed the entire Hope Harbor Series by Irene Hannon. Sandpiper Cove was no different.

Praise for Sandpiper Cove: 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.

The setting was one thing that I've enjoyed with each of the Hope Harbor novels, I get a feel of this small Oregon seaside village. There are times when I can smell the salty ocean air. There is a harbor seal named Casper who turns up in each book, but always at an inopportune time. A character named Charley sells taco's from a taco truck located on the water at a public park that has a serene setting. Charley knows all, he is the voice of reason for many of the characters. 

Sandpiper Cove has well-developed characters. Lexie, the heroine, is a cop. Adam, the hero, is an ex-con. Nothing like two opposites attracting! The romance unfolds slowly and on the page. A page-turning read that keeps you in the moment. Grab your copy today!
