Summary

#1 New York Times best-selling author Sherryl Woods returns listeners to the beloved Southern town of Trinity Harbor with a story of second chances and finding love in unexpected places

How could the sensible daughter of Trinity Harbor's self-proclaimed patriarch have taken in the boy caught hot-wiring her car? Whether the boy is a modern-day Huck Finn or not, Trinity Harbor is in an uproar. But for Daisy Spencer, guiding the orphaned 10-year-old is easy, an escape from her own tragic past. She can ignore the town's nay-saying. The only real obstacle is...that man.

That man is the boy's uncle, Walker Ames, a tough DC cop who sees his unexpected nephew as his last chance at redemption. Soon he's commuting to the charming fishbowl of a town, where everyone assumes he's seduced Daisy - their best Sunday-school teacher! But to Walker, Daisy is a disconcerting mix of charming innocence and smart-mouthed excitement in a town that's not as sleepy as it looks.

A Splendid story with characters of all kinds

A Splendid story with characters of all kinds just so every person can relate to Trinity Harbor. Being my home of West Virginia.. i see a lot of Daisy in myself. The humor is splendid too. Something I rarely succumb to but caught myself chuckling along many times.

Great story

Enjoyed this mightily. Bought the next two books half way through it. Nice blend of romance, good fun and a bit of police mystery plots.

too much discriptive sex

Disappointed that this was not a clean book without going into detail about sex loved the Chesapeake Shores books clean and wonderful I would not have purchased this book had I known it had this kind of content in it

Sweet Story

Loved the story, as usual, for Sherryl Woods'stories. The narration annoyed me with the exaggerated "southern" accent.

Narration, story and characters are great

Great book. Loved Daisy character. I can’t wait to listen to next book. King sounds like he will be meddling.
