Driftwood Bay | Book Review


After tragedy upends her world, Jeannette Mason retreats to the tiny Oregon seaside town of Hope Harbor to create a new life. Vowing to avoid emotional attachments, she focuses on running her lavender farm and tea-room—until a new neighbor with a destructive dog and a forlorn little girl invades her turf. But she needn't worry. Dr. Logan West is too busy coping with an unexpected family, a radical lifestyle change, and an unruly pup to have any interest in his aloof and disagreeable neighbor.

Yet when both Jeanette and Logan find themselves pulled into the life of a tattered Christian family fleeing persecution in war-torn Syria, might they discover that love sometimes comes calling when it's least expected?

Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites readers back to the charming seaside town of Hope Harbor, where they are sure to find peace, healing, and a second chance at happiness.

Travel, once again, to the Oregon coast (and perhaps enjoy the thought of Charlie’s fish tacos) in the latest addition to Irene Hannon’s Hope Harbor series, Driftwood Bay. In the delightful small-town community, second chances, faith, and hope blend for a heartwarming story—with a generous helping of romance, too.

Jeannette Mason, still reeling in the wake of a tragedy, only wants to get her life back on track and in the meantime, keep anyone from getting too close. Logan West has his own grief to handle with his niece and nuisance of a dog. Still, though they may not have been searching for a connection, a connection finds them anyway—with the help of a recently-relocated Syrian family.

The story on the pages of Driftwood Bay encompasses all the emotions. Dealing with grief, loss, and seeing God work in the midst of it all makes it an incredibly poignant read, and I enjoyed it. It’s another Hope Harbor novel that proves easy to recommend to contemporary readers.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
