Windswept Way

Revell. (Hope Harbor, Bk. 9). Apr. 2023. 352p. ISBN 9780800741914. pap. $17.99. CF
Determined to prove herself after a bad relationship and the loss of her dream job, Ashley Scott buys a mysterious mansion that is the subject of much gossip in her new Oregon hometown. The previous owner welcomes her wedding-venue renovations but is still hiding big secrets about the past and present. Meanwhile, groundskeeper and military veteran Jonathan Gray prefers to keep his hood up and wear a mask and gloves at all times, but the changes at Edgecliff start to break past his defenses. Favorite characters make cameo appearances, but the story of being brave enough to enjoy a second chance stands alone as well. Hannon’s ninth book set in Hope Harbor (following Sea Glass Cottage) tugs at the heartstrings just as much as the first—a rare feat in an extended series. Her novels create the perfect fictional world to escape into, while also leaving readers changed in the process.
VERDICT Hannon, who has long been viewed as a successful writer of Christian thrillers, proves she can excel in the contemporary-romance genre as well.
