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

"Sea Rose Lane" is a sweet, charming read.  Where small town people and big as life problems collide, this book has it all.  You will be swept away by this darling little town of Hope Harbor, because the people are so delightful and genuine.  

At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, but I was proven wrong!  The characters are so vivid and easy to relate to.  I especially felt like I could relate to BJ, given her struggle with her weight and her love for the elderly.  For once the heroine didn't just naturally have a Barbie figure, she had to work at being trim, just like the rest of us do.  Most times in a book the girl has a perfect figure, perfect hair etc. and is unrealistic.  I'm glad that Irene Hannon made BJ real!  

Eric was a big sweetheart and a very understanding man.  While his personality isn't the norm for men these days, it should be.  I love how he reached out to Luis and tried his best to be the friend that Luis needed.  

Luis' story broke my heart.  What a devastating blow, but God wasn't done with him yet!  

Charlie was also a favorite!  I'm not a big seafood person. In fact, I don't like seafood at all, but the way Hannon wrote about those fish tacos, I was actually craving some!  Charlie's insight was uncanny!  Could he be an angel?  :)

Each and every character was unique and special.  By reading Sea Rose Lane, I feel as if I'm a part of this charming, little town.  

I highly recommend this book!  You will not be disappointed if you read this novel and if you don't, you'll be missing out!  It is book 2, but is also a stand alone novel.  I didn't read book 1 and was not confused one bit by starting with book 2.
