"This short romance was a GREAT read. Although Christian-based and definitely clean it is NOT preachy." - FIVE STAR Amazon Reader Review (Top 500 Reviewer) on the Port Provident series


For four generations, Bretton's on the Boardwalk, a store dedicated to Christmas, has greeted tourists who come to Port Provident, but after Hurricane Hope tears through town, Jessica Bretton is left with a pile of bills to pay and no tourists visiting her store. She doesn't want to fail her family by closing the doors to the store, but she can't hold on much longer.

As Director of the Park Board of Port Provident, Bradley Thorpe is responsible for getting tourists to Provident Island. It's been almost three months since Hurricane Hope tore through the island, and while there's much work to be done, people are ready to get back to normal. The local economy is strained and it looks like the Christmas season is going to be an unhappy holiday.

When Jessica suggests reviving a Christmas celebration from Port Provident's history books, Bradley is unconvinced. His role is to drive the local economy, not plan parties. Could a woman who celebrates Christmas all year long change the heart of a man who's more interested in the bottom line than a season of hope? And could a little Christmas cheer be just what Port Provident needs to rebuild?


**Please Note: Holiday of Hope is a novella of approximately 20,000 words.**

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.
