If you’ve read my blog, you know that I’m already a big fan of Holly Bush’s books, so of course when the opportunity to read her latest came along, I jumped at it. Her new novel is the fourth in the Crawford Family Series, which started with the first book I ever read of Holly’s, Train Station Bride. I’ve loved this series and following along with the adventures of the Crawford sisters and each book has been even better than the last. This is true of Her Safe Harbor. I loved this story! Here is more about the novel and my five-star review.
