Summary

Single mom Heather Donovan’s dreams of home and family are tantalizingly within reach when she settles in Chesapeake Shores. The welcoming arms of the boisterous, loving O’Brien clan embrace her and her son. But accepting their support seems to further alienate her son’s father, Connor O’Brien. His parents’ divorce and his career as a high-powered divorce attorney have left him jaded about marriage. Then everything changes. Will the possibility of a future without Heather make Connor look at love and his career differently?

Heather’s just about given up on her old dreams - of love, of family, and especially of Driftwood Cottage, the home she secretly wishes was hers. It’s going to take a lot of persuasion - and some help from the O’Brien family - to make Heather believe that some dreams are worth fighting for.

Spend some more time in Chesapeake Shores.

Driftwood Cottage

OMG Heather was such an annoying person, she drove me mad, Connor should have just said ok and walked away, just truely pathetic and not worth the read, such a disappointment.

The best book in the series so far

It has an intriguing and great story with elements of surprice, even though the ending is not the best part. I loved it!

Boring

Sorry this was a very drawn out book, I have read the previous books in the series and very much enjoyed them. Heather and Connor sounded like spoiled kids, nothing really happen that couldn’t have been told in a two chapter book. So this was a fast forward book .

Very romantic

I love the story lines and I can't wait to read the next one , I do wish at the end of a series book that they would tell you the title of the book that to follow the story.

It started off juicy.....

...but Connor's position (which included the repetitive dialogue on marriage between. Connor and Heather ) just kept going on and on and on and on and on. It was just painful and annoying. Then, just when I thought the book was ending, it went on and on and on and on....
Thus far, of the books in this series that I've read, this is definitely my least favorite in the series. It was unnecessarily long and mentally draining.

Not Woods Best Work

I began reading this series of books in anticipation of Hallmarks presentation. I enjoy the Hallmark version but the books not so much. I feel like I just read the same chapter 20 times. I do however love the family and want to get to know them as Woods first intended. Hopefully the next book will be better.
