About the book:

As for BJ, her client's son might be handsome, but after a disastrous romance, dating isn't high on her agenda. Yet when they join forces for to help Hope Harbor seniors, might they also find healing, hope, and a new beginning themselves?
Come home to Hope Harbor--where hearts heal . . . and love blooms
This was an enjoyable story set in a picturesque setting that I really want to visit! Hope Harbor sounds like it's peaceful and scenic and felt like another character in the book. I also really liked Eric and BJ and how much they were willing to go out of their way to help other people. The focus on helping the elderly was a wonderful message, especially with a lot of the population getting to be that age in America. Choosing priorities and finding your purpose in life were a couple of the themes in the story. BJ had been burned by love before and had a hard time trusting a corporate type, especially one who probably wasn't going to be around long. Eric had some difficult choices to make as he had worked hard for years to become a partner in a law firm, but had given up his passion for art in the process. I liked the romance and the honorable way Eric treated BJ as he strove to protect both their hearts in case he moved away. There was talk of faith as Eric seemed to get back in touch with his when he came home and they both regularly attended church. I liked the supernatural elements, such as when Charley, a local artist and taco chef, seemed to know things that no one told him. I'm glad we got the different perspectives of not only BJ and Eric, but also Luis and Eleanor, both people that BJ and Eric were trying to help. This worked great as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this book!
I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
