BOOK REVIEW: Healing Hope by CA Harms

A Standalone Contemporary Romance 

Hope Larsen is living each day of her life with a crippling guilt. The game of ‘what if’ has made it almost impossible to move forward from such a horrific event. In one life-changing moment, someone who meant so very much to her was taken. A man who once was her best friend. A man she fell in love with.

Now she must face the life she’d laid out before her alone, being reminded each day of his absence. The longing inside her, the desperation to be able to still love him without it hurting so much.

She just wanted to live without feeling the pain of losing Walker. But each time she attempted to move forward, there was that lingering thought that somehow she was tarnishing his memories.

Then he shows up. He waltzes right into her life as if he belongs. Strong, confident, and determined to make her see him.

When Travis Donovan crosses paths with the snarky blond, he’s intrigued. Her dismissal of him and his antics doesn’t have the effect she’d hoped for. In fact, it’s just the opposite. He’s not one to run scared from a challenge, but instead, he's the type to fight even harder to conquer it.

Though she tries to fight her attraction for the cocky electrician, she finds that his dedication fascinates her. 

Over time, Hope comes to the realization that there’s one thing that scares her the most. Travis Donovan reminds her of the one she lost.

That stride, that smile, even the way he torments her…it’s all the same. He could be the one to show her that it's okay to move forward. It’s okay to love again. 

Travis Donovan just might be the one to heal Hope.


This just might be my favorite CA Harms book! Well, until her next one, I'm sure, because she always amazes me with her writing.

Hope & Travis had a story that I couldn't help but instantly LOVE. The moment they met, I knew Travis was PERFECT for Hope.

She had been lost for some time now due to the loss of her husband and was really just existing. She wasn't living. She did what she needed to do to get through her days, but any kind of excitement took a back seat to survivor's guilt. Until Travis.

Travis lit a spark in Hope, one not even Hope herself could deny. And boy, was I ready for her to give him a chance! Once Travis found out who Hope was, it melted my heart to see how he instantly understood her actions. He changed his approach, but he sure as hell did not give up...and I am glad he didn't because he was just what she needed. She needed to be challenged, she needed a reason for her heart to beat again. And Travis was just that—her second chance.

Another fantastic read from C.A. Harms and one I highly recommend!
