Harbor Nights

Big families, lots of kids, pets, Maine, humor and romance means a Marcia Evanick romance. And, Harbor Nights doesn't disappoint.

Norah Stevens finds a job with the local newspaper when she and her divorced mother, Joanne, escape to Misty Harbor, Maine. Norah is still shell-shocked that her mother lived with her drunken, abusive husband for twenty-five years, and she only found out when her father hit her when she stopped in for a visit. Together, the women found a refuge. Joanne is willing to move on, find a job, and, maybe date. But, Norah is afraid, and Ned Porter, the gentle giant who encounters her in his parents' backyard, is big and imposing. Norah wants to believe he's as gentle as he appears, but she's afraid to trust her heart.

Once again, Evanick intertwines two romances in an enjoyable story featuring characters a reader would like as neighbors. Harbor Nights welcomes readers back to Misty Harbor, Maine, a perfect setting for romance.
