Harbor Secrets Promo Blast

About The Book:
A Peaceful Coastal Town...Threatened by a Storm of Secrets
It's 1916 when newspaper woman Anna McDowell learns her estranged father has suffered a
stroke. Deciding it's time to repair
bridges, Anna packs up her precocious adolescent daughter
and heads for her hometown in Sunset Cove, Oregon.
Although much has changed since the turn of the century, some things haven’t. Anna finds the
the staff of her father’s paper not exactly eager to welcome a woman into the editor-in-chief role, but
her father insists he wants her at the helm. Anna is quickly pulled into the charming town and
new position... but just as quickly learns this seaside getaway harbors some dark and dangerous
With Oregon’s new statewide prohibition in effect, crime has crept along the seacoast and
invaded even idyllic Sunset Cove. Anna only meant to get to know her father again over the
summer, but instead she finds herself rooting out the biggest story the town has ever seen
And trying to keep her daughter safe from it all.

My Thoughts:  This well-written story takes us to the seashore in Oregon during the prohibition period. Anna returns home to visit her estranged father to make amends for a disagreement that happened years ago.  During this visit home, she discovers that something just isn't quite right around town.  Using her investigative news reporting skills she intends to find out.   

This is a wonderful summertime read!  It's always nice to read about the ocean and beaches in the summer, and this one is perfect.   It's full of mystery and suspense; it doesn't focus on romance.  This is a book about forgiveness, healing relationships and starting over.   I enjoyed Melody Carlson's writing and how she developed her characters.  It was a very enjoyable read.
