Review of Sandpiper Cove

Sandpiper Cove

 

In Irene Hannon’s Sandpiper Cove, Adam Stone must report an act of vandalism to the police. Because he’s an ex-con, this is the last thing he wants to do but when Hope Harbor’s police chief Lexie Graham (a woman with her own secrets) enters his life, Stone gets more than he bargained for. Will the culprit be caught? And will this unlikely pair find a future they weren’t looking for?

Sandpiper Cove is a story with potential. The setting on the Oregon coast makes a beautiful backdrop, the loveable dog Clyde is an adorable addition, and the theme of redemption running throughout the novel makes the plot intriguing.

However, the characters feel shallow, the dialogue unrealistic and tiresome, and the religious message overdone. Most of all, the romantic angle is over the top and drowns out the rest of the storyline. Therefore, I regret that I cannot recommend Sandpiper Cove.
