Pelican Point is the fourth novel in the Hope Harbor series. In this intriguing novel, we are introduced to Army doctor Ben Garrison who has arrived back to Hope Harbor for his grandfather's funeral.

Ben, being sole heir is left everything, including the run-down lighthouse at Pelican Point. Ben wants to settle his grandfather's affairs and move on to his new practice in Ohio and that means selling an old lighthouse no one wants to buy; until a developer puts in a bid to buy it and the whole town comes together thanks to Marci, the local newspaper editor to save the landmark.

Can Ben who wants nothing more to settle the estate can't push past the feelings he has for Marci, the strong-willed red headed newspaper editor. Both Ben and Marci are dealing with past issues that have made them skittish about forming relationships. Will they be able to move past these issues and yield to their feelings?

The writer has done a great job of bringing you into the small town of Hope Harbor and into the lives of the characters she has created. I especially appreciated the way all the characters in Hope Harbor revolved around the lighthouse and Charly the taco king.

I like the way she artfully interweaves the characters in this story and creates a subplot.

Although this novel is the fourth in a series, it can stand alone without reading the first three, but once you've read this one you will want to read the rest.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.

I'm loving this series and this book is no exception. This book brings together romance and a little suspense. Even though I didn't care for the character, Greg, at first, he became a vital person in the saving of the lighthouse. Of course, I loved the main characters, Ben and Marci, and hope to see them in the future, even in a minor role. ( )

What a neat book. Two couples, two romances. One romance that needs to start for the first time, and one that needs rekindling. A red-haired, frightened hot-head and a calm, military doctor who clash over a local landmark, that Ben actually refers to as “Skip’s Folly.” I liked getting to see inside the lives of Ben and Marci and Greg and Rachel. How they handle conflict ultimately will decide if their relationships will make it or be broken forever.

The townspeople are great in their care for their own. My favorite person is Charley. the taco maker. He seems to be very smart and insightful into others’ needs, yet he is eccentric enough to talk to the seagulls. Maybe that is what makes him a non-threatening counselor of sorts.

Twists I didn’t anticipate turned the course of the story. But isn’t that true of real life?

This was the second romance I have read in this Hope Harbor series of Ms. Hannon’s, but I intend to rectify that. The town and the people are just too wonderful to leave before one must.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley. This in no way affects my opinions, which I am leaving voluntarily and for which I am solely responsible. ( )

I've only recently discovered this author. I'm not sure where I heard about this book--I didn't realize until I came here on Goodreads that it was book 4 in the series. I was not lost by jumping into the series at this book, so that is a good thing.

The beginning of the book felt very familiar to me. This could mean that I read a preview of the book at some point, or it could mean that there is another book out there that I've read where someone inherits a lighthouse--even though I don't remember a title.

Hope Harbor seems like a nice little town. It's got it's small town problems (everyone knowing everyone else's business) but the residents do seem to care for each other for the most part.

Loving each other in good and bad times and being committed to the one you love seem to be a common theme that weaves throughout the book.

Interesting that both Marci and Ben would have a similar issue in their past dating lives.

I thought the relationship between Rachel and Greg showcased some of the challenges that can occur in a marriage and ways to overcome them. Greg's emotions about being an amputee who now cannot get the job he's wanted for years seem realistic. Tough love is sometimes necessary. I'm glad it worked out in this case. I'm glad Marci was able to recognize his talent and redirect it to give him a new purpose.

Charley seems like an interesting character and it seems he has a past that is only hinted at so far.

The plot idea of the two main characters being attracted to each other but not wanting to get involved with each other is a bit overused in the genre. I wish the author could have made it more fresh rather than going with a tried and true plot point. ( )
