Zach made the move from the corporate fast track to coffee-shop owner in the small town of Hope Harbor after his brother died. The move caused what seems like an irreparable rift with his father, but he is much happier. He thinks he has everything he needs until he meets Kat, who is renting the beach home next to his. Kat is a famous actress fresh from L.A., looking for a place to recover after a colleague's death. Her agent keeps calling her, but she can't make herself accept a promising new opportunity. She is content, for now, to make chocolate truffles for the people she meets and befriends in this coastal Oregon town, but it is hard to turn down her dream role. Zach and Kat build their relationship slowly, while his newly retired aunt falls in love quickly during her visit. Food and faith help the characters heal in the latest in the Hope Harbor series, following Driftwood Bay (2019). Hannon's town of second chances continues to inspire sweet love stories like those in Debbie Macomber's Blossom Street books. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
