About the book:
Title: Starfish Pier
Author: Irene Hannon
Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2020
A year ago, ex-Delta Force operator Steven Roark left the rigors of combat behind to run fishing charters in Hope Harbor, decompress, and talk some sense into his kid brother. Business is good–but making peace with his past is more challenging than he expected.
First-grade teacher Holly Miller leads a quiet, low-profile existence–until she’s recruited to advocate for a cause that’s dear to her heart. When she solicits Steven’s assistance, sparks fly–especially after they find themselves on opposite sides of an issue that disrupts their placid seaside community.
As these two seemingly incompatible souls search for common ground, might they discover a deeper connection–and find that love can banish darkness and light the way to a future filled with promise?
Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites you back to Hope Harbor–where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
Welcome to Steven and Holly’s story! If you’ve enjoyed the previous stories in this series, you’ll love Starfish Pier. While this is part of a series, each book does stand alone.
I love how Irene Hannon manages to captivate my imagination and take me away from everyday life all while presenting me with real problems. Steven wants to help his brother, and his take charge attitude keep the two at odds. I worried that having personal experience with situation might pull me from the story. Instead, it helped me to delve deeper into the characters and understand what they were going through.
I still say Charley could pull off his own series. He’s such an important part of the book development that I want to see more into where he’s come from.
Holly endeared herself to me from the very beginning. I love how thoughtful she was and how she slowly gained her independence while helping others.
