That Chesapeake Summer by Mariah Stewart

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Jamie Valentine is the wildly successful author of self-help books advocating transparency in every relationship. But when her widowed mother passes away unexpectedly, Jamie discovers her own life has been based on a lie. Angry and deeply betrayed, she sets out to find the truth—which may be in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay. Cutting her most recent book tour short, Jamie books a room at the Inn at Sinclair’s Point, just outside St. Dennis.

The death of Daniel Sinclair’s father forced him to take over the family inn, and his wife’s death left him a single parent of two children, so there’s little room for anything else in his life. His lovely new guest is intriguing, though, and he’s curious about the secret she’s clearly hiding. But in the end, Jamie and Dan could discover the greatest truth of all: that the search for one thing just might lead to the find of a lifetime—if you keep your heart open.

Goodreads Summary

Although this is the ninth installment in the Chesapeake series, this book works well as it's own entity. In fact it works very well in that regard and makes for a very enjoyable read. This book is a good combination of romance and mystery as Jaimie tries to uncover the story behind her secret find after her mother passed away. Along the way she finds a possible new love interest that she remains unsure of but is still curious about what it may hold for her future.

Jaimie and Dan seem to be the perfect combination for each other, and it is exciting seeing their romance blossom. They both came across each other in an unexpected place in their respective lives and it could not have been a better time for either of them, even if they weren't willing to accept it right away. The images created of St. Dennis set the scene well and the author does a great job at incorporating that into the overall summer mood of the book. Another thing that keeps this book fresh is the revolving door of characters that enter the small town as each of them has a unique story of their own. See how the story unfolds and get into the summer thrills with this book.
