When Zach Garrett notices an intriguing stranger in his coffee shop, he attempts to strike up a conversation, since he doesn’t exactly have an active social life in the tiny town of Hope Harbor, OR. But even the stranger’s reclusiveness and refusal to share more than her name, Kat, with him aren’t enough to dampen his interest. As for Katherine Parker, she escaped to the peaceful town to avoid the paparazzi stalking her after the death of her costar and to make some decisions about her future in acting. She didn’t expect to run into a handsome barista whose kindness and support make her wonder about personal happiness versus fame and fortune, and she’s not sure which path God is leading her down.
VERDICT Hannon (Starfish Pier) returns to Hope Harbor with an unsurprising romance that reads well as a stand-alone but will satisfy series fans with glimpses of characters from previous books. A couple of retirees’ romantic interest in each other livens up the plot, but this book is recommended mainly for libraries that already own the series or where Hannon is popular.
