Far Harbor by JoAnn Ross
Coldwater Cove #2
Savannah walked in on her husband of ten years with another woman. It shattered her. She moved back home to Washington and bought a lighthouse to be a B&B. She's happy to be back with her growing family. Along the way, she finds love again with the help of a ghost that haunts the lighthouse.
I really liked this story.
"One of the best storytellers the genre has produced" (Amazon.com), JoAnn Ross creates characters so vibrant and funny they're irresistible. Now she triumphs again with a remarkably intimate tale that illuminates the ardent emotions of a woman coming to terms with her life -- and with her heart.After her seemingly idyllic marriage turns out to be a pretty illusion, Savannah Townsend returns to her hometown of Coldwater Cove, Washington. Determined to live life on her own terms, she takes on the task of restoring the local Far Harbor lighthouse and making it the cozy inn she had always dreamed of. But she hasn't anticipated opposition from the lighthouse's owner, her grandmother's disturbing memory losses, or the problems of an emotionally wounded teenage girl. Most of all, she hasn't planned on having feelings for Daniel O'Halloran, a caring and passionate man from her past.
As affection moves to attraction and then to something far deeper, Savannah learns that in life nothing worth having comes easily. She also discovers that some dreams really are forever.
A novel of uncommon grace and power, "Far Harbor" is at once a poignant love story and an emotion-packed account of one woman's journey home.
