An exceptional debut novel. Set against the backdrop of the idyllic waterfront location of Harmony Bay, Tom Gahan has weaved a wonderful tale, full of intrigue, mystery, adventure, action, and a twist of romance.
Dory McDonough is a young widow; taking her ten year old son, James, she moves to Harmony Bay, a small town, hoping to build a better life for herself and her son. Dory soon learns that there are perils that lurk in the bay that could be just as dangerous as any found in a big city. Ther

I live in a coastal hamlet so I really enjoyed "Harmony Bay!" The author truly captured the essence of life in a small town. I loved the little bits of history seamlessly woven in, out and through this lovely old-fashioned love story. And, I learned fascinating facts about Nor' Easters, knots and marine life. For me, it doesn't get much better than "Harmony Bay!" A must read!!!

If the leading male was not loosely based off of my brother, I'd have a little crush on him! Entertaining and enjoyable book. Makes you want to move to a small fishing village!
