About The Book
A crumbling lighthouse is not part of the inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career.

Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home–and she’s determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.

Sparks fly as the two go head to head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. And as they work together, might Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?

My Thoughts
Ms. Hannon has done it again! She has brought her long time fans (and I’m sure, some new fans!) another hit. Pelican Point brings us back to Hope Harbor, once again, and keeps us hanging on every page turn. I stayed up long into the night trying to finish this one and when I closed the last page…..well, let’s just say I didn’t want it to end.

I loved the way Ms. Hannon created Ben and Marci. They were real-to-life and really jumped off the pages. Watching them come together, determining what should be done with Pelican Point, was not just interesting, it was fun. They butt heads on occasion, but then Hannon weaves in the power that God has and the head butting quickly turns to blossoming attraction making me wish that I was there beside them, cheering them on in real life.

Ms. Hannon not only gives us a great performance with Ben and Marci in this story, she brings back some lovable characters from the first three novels and really rounds out the story. The messages of hope that she winds into the words of the story really pop to me. I loved every second of this story! For 2018, this has become one of my favorite novels and I can’t wait to read more 5 star worthy reads from her fantabulously, incredibly talented hands. Well done, Ms. Hannon! Well done!

About The Author

Irene Hannon is a bestselling, award-winning author who took the publishing world by storm at the tender age of 10 with a sparkling piece of fiction that received national attention.

Okay…maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. But she was one of the honorees in a complete-the-story contest conducted by a national children’s magazine. And she likes to think of that as her “official” fiction-writing debut!

Since then, she has written more than 50 romantic suspense and contemporary romance/women’s fiction novels. She is a seven-time finalist for and three-time winner of the RITA award—the “Oscar” of romance fiction—and a member of the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. She has also received a Career Achievement award from RT Book Reviews for her entire body of work. In addition, her books have won a Daphne du Maurier award, two Carol awards, three HOLT Medallions, a National Readers’ Choice award, a Retailers Choice award, three Booksellers’ Best awards and two Reviewers’ Choice awards from RT Book Reviews. She is also a two-time Christy award finalist.

Irene, who holds a B.A. in psychology and an M.A. in journalism, juggled two careers for many years until she gave up her executive corporate communications position with a Fortune 500 company to write full time. She is happy to say she has no regrets!

In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, gardening and singing. A trained vocalist, she has sung the leading role in numerous musicals, including “South Pacific,” “Brigadoon,” “Oklahoma” “The King and I” and “Anything Goes.” She is also a soloist at her church.

When not otherwise occupied, Irene and her husband enjoy traveling, Saturday mornings at their favorite coffee shop and spending time with family. They make their home in Missouri.
