Sea Glass Cottage (Hope Harbor, #8) by Irene Hannon

Sea Glass Cottage (Hope Harbor, #8)

Christi Reece is desperate. The one-time golden girl's life has tarnished, and a cascade of setbacks has left her reeling. She needs help, and she's certain Jack Colby is in a position to provide it.

When she shows up in Hope Harbor, however, Jack wants nothing to do with the woman who betrayed him. He's built a new life on the Oregon coast--and there's no room in it for Christi, even after she takes refuge in a charming but mysterious cottage nearby. Yet it soon becomes apparent his opinion of her may need revising . . . especially when he ends up needing her help.

Can these two hurting souls make peace with their past and open their hearts to a new beginning?

Come home to Hope Harbor--where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.

Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon delivers another heartwarming and romantic story set in the enchanting seaside community of Hope Harbor that is loved by readers the world over. Once you visit, you'll never want to leave.


I've never been to Oregon but reading this book made me feel like I was right there, viewing the beautiful Oregon landscape around Hope Harbor. This fictional coastal town is very much like my own small town in Kentucky---a place where most people know you, and they probably know much of your business! This can be good, but it can also be bad, and author Irene Hannon offers a poignant depiction in her newest novel.

Sea Glass Cottage is the eighth book of the Hope Harbor series, and the two main characters certainly have a lot to overcome. Christi Reece is a much different person than the girl who broke Jack Colby's heart eleven years ago. She thought that the money and status that she craved were more important than the life that Jack could give her, but experience and maturity have given her a new perspective. Now, she's in Hope Harbor and she needs his help, but does she have the right to expect it?

Hannon always impresses me with her ability to weave wonderful faith elements into her stories. Readers are given a subtle, inspiring message and this book is no different, as she shows the value of trust and forgiveness. We are reminded that recognizing our mistakes and being truly repentant is certainly necessary but being able to forgive is essential!

Much of my joy in reading this series has come from the reunion with characters from the previous books. They are like old friends eager to share what has happened since we last met. It's wonderful to learn that Hannon now plans three more books set in Hope Harbor. I truly enjoyed Sea Glass Cottage and I recommend it to all who enjoy contemporary Christian romance.
