Holly is a first grade teacher new to Hope Harbor. She is shy, but pushes herself out of her comfort zone. She has a new neighbor with cancer who plans on ending his life through assisted suicide. The neighbor's suffering appears to be more emotional from the loss of his wife rather than physical. Holly also meets another resident of the town, who is an ex-Delta force member, whose brother is an alcoholic. This book would appeal to those with a personality type of wanting to "fix" others' problems. The author uses a superficial character development technique of having character's thoughts directly stated in italics, which tends to distance the reader rather than draw them into the presented lives. I was a little disappointed in the lack of experiential feeling from this "romance." ( )

I love Hope Harbor and the characters that live there. Steven has moved there to have a more peaceful life to spend his days fishing and taking people out to fish, but there are still things in his past that stick with him.
Holly finds herself working with Steven on a project where they don't always agree it turns into a really big deal as the entire community gets involved. They have to learn how to work for this good cause even when they don't always agree. I know how hard that can be to really be pasionate about something but to have to sometimes give in to make things work for the best.
I received a copy of the book the review is mine. ( )

Steven is ex-military, settling into Hope Harbor as a fish charter boat captain. Holly is newer to town, taking over as the first-grade teacher and diving into volunteer work at the local church. Both harbor their own secrets.

Starfish Pier is not my first experience with author Irene Hannon. After previously reading Hidden Peril, a suspenseful romance, Starfish Pier was a much more tranquil vibe. However, from the start I was skeptical about the abruptness of their feelings for one another. From literally the moment Holly stumbles on his boat they are smitten but fighting back love. The chemistry of Steven and Holly was hard to feel as the shifting of perspectives from Steven, to Holly, to Steven’s brother Patrick, and even Holly’s neighbor Pete added to the forced feeling of their romantic bond. Regardless, Hannon holds nothing back as she embraces some incredibly heavy themes and topics. Thus, as the setting remains idealistic, there are certainly some heavy storms waged on land, in hearts and through the secrets each holds.

Holly Miller is a first grade teacher who has moved to Hope Harbor for a new start. She is such a special person and I admired her efforts to raise money to protect humans in all stages of life. Becoming involved in a fundraiser introduces her to a former military man who has actually taken lives and, as different as they are, an attraction is felt and the romantic sparks fly! But how can two people with such different ideas even attempt to explore a relationship? What follows is a lovely but very emotional story that shows how a community bands together to show Holly and Steven Roark that their differences can be overcome. These people recognize that Holly and Steven are meant for each other!

Author Irene Hannon has filled Starfish Pier with wonderful quotes that prompted me to reflect on God's presence in our lives. She shares a powerful faith message about the sanctity of life and the importance of forgiveness and she also reminds us that each of us must decide our destiny. Will we allow our past lives to continue to dominate us or will we choose to use our mistakes to build a foundation for a worthwhile future?

"Trying to understand the mystery of God is like digging a hole on the beach and trying to transfer the sea into it, bucket by bucket. It's never going to happen. That's why trust is integral to faith."

Some of the subjects in this book are controversial but this is an unforgettable story of hope and healing. I loved this sixth Hope Harbor novel and I would love to visit there again. I certainly recommend Starfish Pier to all who enjoy contemporary romance and Christian fiction.

I received a copy of this book from Revell. There was no obligation for a positive review and I am voluntarily sharing my own thoughts. ( )

The story is an emotional journey with several amazing characters. The setting is serene and breathtaking and I felt relaxed as the story unfolded. Holly is sweet and caring and is on a mission to get funds for a project she believes in. She deals with physical issues but it never stops her from following her dreams.

Steven is a handsome man who has come home to repair his relationship with his brother. I really liked how determined he was to rebuild his relationship with his brother. Getting to know Steven’s brother was an emotional rollercoaster. The author does an excellent job of talking about alcoholism and the effects it has on the entire family. I so wanted Patrick to finally surrender and admit he needed help.

What I really liked about the story was the fragile connection that Steven and Holly first had. They don’t see eye to eye on some issues which makes for a story filled with forgiveness and trusting God to heal wounds. I so much wanted to see them work things out and become a couple. I don’t want to forget to mention Pete. He is Holly’s neighbor and tends to stay to himself. Holly continues to make every effort to befriend him. The secret she learns about him is one that will require tissues. I wanted to adopt Pete as my granddad. His story will have an impact on several characters as he learns to trust people again.

The story is a wonderful journey through several tough subjects that the author handles with eloquent writing. I enjoyed every moment I spent getting to know each character and watching God change them.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Reads. The review is my own opinion. ( )
