She stole his heart.
He stole her peace.
Can hope steal their pain?

At the age of eighteen, Lacey Carmichael was a wild girl bent on fun, promised to Jack O’Bryen, a straight-and-narrow pastor’s kid bent on the seminary. When her father kicks her out of the house, she runs away from Isle of Hope, turning her back on everything she loves. Now, eight years later, she’s back as a woman of faith, hoping to make amends to the father she defied, the boyfriend she deserted, and the best friend she denied. Only the bridges she’s burned are still smoldering, kindled by an adulterous affair by Jack’s pastor father that damaged his son’s faith. But can a turning of tables—and hearts—lead the way back to “hope” for them all?

My thoughts:

Julie Lessman has dove into the world of contemporary romance. I read the prequel to this book and was interested to read this book.

In the first book Lacy is an immature girl and kind of annoying but in Isle of Hope she has matured into a lovely young woman looking to build bridges that she has broken. Unfortunately, not everyone is on the same page as her. Jack, the boy she loved, has turned away from God and this breaks her heart.

There are so many layers and twisted paths in this book it made it very interesting. I don’t want to say too much but I couldn’t wait to see how everything would play out.

If you have liked Julie’s historical romance I have no doubt you will enjoy this book as well.
