"Ms. Ethridge has woven a truly lovely and touching tale of hope, faith and love. Her characters are so well-developed and likable, I found myself genuinely caring about how things turned out for them." - FIVE STAR Amazon Reader Review


Dr. Pete Shipley is on a mission to save lives in another corner of the world where his skills are needed. City Councilwoman Angela Ruiz is a single parent fighting to save her hometown after Hurricane Hope tears through Port Provident, leaving destruction across the community she has sworn to serve. Together, they team up to found The Grace Space, a Christian-based community gathering spot in the heart of Angela's district, where residents can get food, household goods, and basic medical care while Port Provident rebuilds after the storm.

When Pete's appointment to an international medical mission comes, will the doctor follow his lifelong dream and leave Port Provident, The Grace Space, and Angela and her daughter--or will he stay with the family he didn't expect to love as he realizes that he can change the world without leaving home?


Port Provident is a Texas beachside community you'll want to call home again and again. With compelling, well-developed characters that make you care about them and their journeys of the heart and faith, the Port Provident series is a clean and sweet contemporary romance treat. Although the Port Provident: Hurricane Hope books can be read in order as an anthology,each book stands alone--you can read any book at any time. Should you want to read them in order, though, start with Shelter from the Storm, then The Doctor's Unexpected Family, then His Texas Princess, and complete the series with Holiday of Hope. You can also find more tales of true love and a legacy of grace in Saving Gracie and Second Chance Sweethearts, both from Love Inspired books.
