Hope Harbor police chief Lexie Graham has plenty on her plate raising her son alone and dealing with a sudden rash of petty theft and vandalism in her coastal Oregon hometown. As a result, she has zero time for extracurricular activities--including romance. Ex-con Adam Stone isn't looking for love either--but how ironic is it that the first woman to catch his eye is a police chief? Yet wishing for things that can never be is foolish.
Nevertheless, when Lexie enlists Adam's help
to keep a young man from falling into a life of crime, sparks begin to
fly. And as they work together, it soon becomes apparent that God may
have a different--and better--future planned for them than either could
This is an unusual romance in that a police chief falls in love with an ex-con. The pitfalls and public opinion are against them. There's also the crime spree that has hit town. As Lexie tries to solve the crimes she enlists Adams help in mentoring a young teen. Along the way Adam helps Lexie find her lost faith.
I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone.
