First Line Friday — Windswept Way

14 Apr

Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a book that I just loved! (Review HERE.) Windswept Way by Irene Hannon is the 9th book in the Hope Harbor series! They are all so good, but this one is my favorite. If you haven’t read the books in this series, then you are in for a big treat!

Here’s the first line:

Maybe buying a haunted house wasn’t her best idea.

Buying a haunted house was never in Ashley Scott’s plans, but when an intriguing opportunity drops into her lap after a major setback, she finds herself trekking cross-country to Hope Harbor on the Oregon coast to launch a new life.

Wounded warrior Jonathan Gray isn’t sure what to make of the attractive woman on his reclusive older neighbor’s isolated property, but her presence is none of his business–until she enlists his help with an ambitious project. When Jonathan finds his interest in the new arrival becoming more personal than professional, however, his defenses go up. There’s no room in his life–or his heart–for romance.

Yet, as these three hurting people join forces to restore life, laughter, and love to a historic estate that has known too much sadness, they may also find healing, hope, and happiness for themselves.

Bestselling author Irene Hannon invites you back to Hope Harbor, where hearts heal and love blooms.

Irene Hannon is the best-selling author of more than 35 novels. Her books have been honored with the coveted RITA Award from Romance Writers of America, the HOLT Medallion, the Reviewer’s Choice Award from Romantic Times BOOKreviews magazine and the Daphne du Maurier Award for mystery/suspense. Irene and her husband make their home in Missouri, USA. Irene invites you to visit her at her website,

    I always love Irene Hannon. Great setting of Hope Harbor.
    My first line this week is from Blind Trust by Natalie Walters
    “How much longer?” Lyla Fox gritted her teeth at the voice echoing through the tiny earpiece.
