About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

Windswept Way (Hope Harbor, #9) by Irene Hannon

Windswept Way (Hope Harbor, #9)

Buying a haunted house was never in Ashley Scott's plans, but when an intriguing opportunity drops into her lap after a major setback, she finds herself trekking cross-country to Hope Harbor on the Oregon coast to launch a new life.

Wounded warrior Jonathan Gray isn't sure what to make of the attractive woman on his reclusive older neighbor's isolated property, but her presence is none of his business--until she enlists his help with an ambitious project. When Jonathan finds his interest in the new arrival becoming more personal than professional, however, his defenses go up. There's no room in his life--or his heart--for romance.

Yet, as these three hurting people join forces to restore life, laughter, and love to a historic estate that has known too much sadness, they may also find healing, hope, and happiness for themselves.

Bestselling author Irene Hannon invites you back to Hope Harbor, where hearts heal and love blooms.


Windswept Way takes us back to Hope Harbor, Oregon, for another visit with the likable residents of this lovely seacoast village. We're introduced to Rose, Ashley, and Jonathan as they join forces to restore a beloved historical residence but the ultimate restoration project may actually take place in their own lives. Author Irene Hannon shares a touching story of finding one's purpose, learning to trust, and seeing beyond outward appearances, and she also gives readers a reunion with Charlie, Father Murphy, and Reverend Baker. I loved Rose's efforts to unite Ashley and Jonathan and I was moved by the special friendship that she finds with Charlie. How could this happen to a person who purposely avoided people?!?!

Windswept Way is awesome contemporary fiction and I'm so glad that there are more books planned for this Hope Harbor series. Hannon excels in writing realistic stories that tug at your heartstrings and inspire you to search your soul, and I was truly 'swept away' while reading this story!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
