Blackberry Beach is a sweet romance novel set in Hope Harbor. It is the seventh book in the series and many characters from past books make appearances. But don’t worry, it can be read as a stand alone. It won’t take long to be drawn into the charming seaside town and all that comes with it. The setting alone will keep you reading! The characters are not rushed, but carefully developed. Not just the primary characters, but the secondary characters are equally important. The relationship that develops between two “mature” characters was a highlight in my opinion. Authors tend to write storylines around younger romances, so this caught my attention! Irene Hannon has a way of writing that pulls you in and you become a part of the story. If you are looking to get lost in a book, Blackberry Beach will be just the right fit!
