Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
Excellent Second Chance Romance!
Home to the Harbor by Lee Tobin McClain is the fourth book in her The Off Season series.
Fisherwoman, Bisky Castleman, is about as far as you can get from the average female. At 6’ 1”, she’s a big girl and thinks it’s a turnoff to men. She’s just hanging out, doing what she’s always done in her small hometown when she sees her childhood best friend, William Gross.
William left town decades before but is back now. He’s not happy to be back in his hometown, but he doesn’t really have a choice in the matter.
Bisky asks for William’s help with a volunteer project she’s starting, and he reluctantly agrees. Bisky and William are becoming awkward with each other because they’re feeling things they shouldn’t feel for “just a friend”. If they don’t figure this out, they could lose a lifelong friendship.
Lee Tobin McClain delivers another 5 out of 5 star read in this standalone series. We learn a little more about the town of Pleasant Shores and its charming residents, especially Bisky Castleman and her daughter, Sunny, who were introduced in previous books in the series, but have complete backstories here. The writing is superb, with an engaging plot and interesting twists. The changing elements of the seaside scenery are smoothly and smartly used. This is a heartfelt story and yet another excellent installment in a great series. I completely enjoyed it and recommend this heartwarming novel to all lovers of second chance romance.
My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
