Pelican Point -Book Review


In the midst of life’s storms, unexpected love is a beacon of hope.



A crumbling lighthouse is not part of an inheritance Army doctor Ben Garrison expects to claim when he journeys to Hope Harbor. Fresh out of the service, he wants only to unload the tower of bricks, decompress from the years of treating battlefield trauma, and prepare to launch his civilian career.

Hope Harbor Herald editor Marci Weber has other ideas. She may not be a Hope Harbor native, but the small Oregon seaside town has become home- and she’s determined to save the Pelican Point landmark.

Sparks fly as the two go head-to-head over the fate of the lighthouse. But when they start to cooperate, a different kind of fire ignites. Can Hope Harbor heal the hearts of these two romance-wary souls?

Come to Hope Harbor- Where hearts heal…and love blooms.

My Thoughts:

If you like predictable insta-love stories with a stalker thrown in, this is the book for you. Perhaps it’s because this book is the fourth in a series that I haven’t read, or the lack of authenticity, but this book just didn’t jive. I’m really getting tired of finding books that seem to promise so much, yet fall into that lukewarm, so-so, trophish, let me down ways. I guess that the characters were okay. There was nothing remarkable that stood out about them, and I found them to all be confusing and annoying at times. Marci (can I just cringe at that name now….) is way too clingy. Ben is just off in a lot of ways. And then there is this WHOLE other story happening on the side that has nothing to do with the main plot of the book. What is that about? Please, just pick a story and stick to it.

Ok, ok, rant over.

If you are looking for a very quick read, maybe something fluffy for the beach, then this would be perfect. If you have higher expectations for books (better writing, less predictability, a supposedly Christian book where the characters ACTUALLY act like Christians, ect. ) then I would skip it. I personally don’t think I will be picking up anything else written by this author.

I was given this book in exchange for my honest review from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing. All opinions stated above are my own.
