Ionships start to mend I love the small town that MsStewart created in this book The townspeople are fun and much like those That You Find All Over you find all over This book could easily have been about my town She keeps both the romance and the suspense fairly light making this a great read for the beach I can t wait to dive into the next book 4255I ve always loved Mariah Stewart s heartwarming love stories And this is another book from her that brought me such enjoyment Despite being a bit slow paced at times this was a very nice and pleasant read It was sweet beautiful touching and emotional I enjoyed reading this one a lot When Vanessa Keaton s escapes an abusive marriage SHE RETURNS TO THE ONLY PLACE returns to the only place has ever really called home Whilst Hal is not really her stepfather any he and her half brother Beck have never treated Vanessa as anything other than family after she was dumped on their doorstep by her neglectful mother Maggie Now she has rebuilt her life She has a successful dress boutiue in the small town of St Dennis called Bling she has friends and she is happy being singleWith Beck getting married his fiancee has asked her to look after her reclusive brother Grady Shields who will be in town for just a few days for the wedding Grady is ex FBI but now he lives in the isolated wilds of Montana He operates adventure tours but mostly he just wants to be alone and has done so since the death of his wife while he was an FBI agent He is also pretty sure he doesn t need a babysitter for the few days he is in town but he can t deny his attraction to VanessaWhen there are a series of incidents where Vanessa and her business appear to be the targets Grady steps in determined to protect her no matter what it takesThis is one of if not the only books in the series to have that romantic suspense style subplot It isn t my favourite thing but I can live with it occasionallyRating 45See my thoughts on the first five books in the series here I downloaded this book for free from my library Somehow it got stuck in the section entitled historical romance First it isn t historical Second while it reads like a romance it is on the border of chic lit It also involves a lot of big heavy themes such as domestic violence grieving widowers and two generations of people falling in love The backdrop is a town in the midst of revitalization a lot of people who get along really well for a small gossipy community One of the major problems in this book are diary entries from a senior citizen who has lived in this town forever While I m normally on board with different points of view in italics this didn t work The italicized parts read like a newspaper but I don t want to read a synopsis of the previous chapter I would like a little insight or some foreshadowing on the upcoming chaptersThe Hero HeroineI liked them They seem like nice characters But they didn t have a story really The book was so populated with secondary characters that the time spent on these two was rushed This is where it borders on chick lit because I know about the relationship between the heroine and her best friend than I do about the hero heroine Actually I was interested in the best friend and her story and I kind of lost interest in the heroine s This is one of those times that I wish I could give half stars because really this is a 25 review I probably won t read from this author unless I stumble upon the best friend s story at some point in the future I read this because the Read Between the Wines group chose it Our book hostess this month met the author and had never read anything by her soThe story is predictable and contrived The characters are cliche and rather silly The writing is a lot of tell tell tell The scenery is interesting being familiar with Annapolis helped my interest and this set up a number of side stories for future books about the small town I was entertained by it in that same way I m entertained by Chef Ramsey on Master Chef I don t like him but I don t change the channel eitherNot that I ve read worse is a very good review but that s kind of where this one stands. M the nightmare she left behind The last thing she’s looking for is romance but the hot new man in town is hard to resist And when Vanessa’s past catches up with her Grady finds that he’s unwilling to let her become a victim again As together they fight her demons Grady and Vanessa discover that life still holds some surprises and that love doesn’t always have to hurtBONUS This edition includes an excerpt from Mariah Stewart's Long Way Home.

I wish I had known before I started reading this series that there was a trilogy that preceded it The Last trilogy There are so many references to characters in these other books that I spent the first hundred pages wondering if I d picked up the wrong book in the series after carefully checking that it was the start of The Chesapeake Diaries My main comment about this novel is that it reads like a soap opera The plot focuses on a group of core couples with a bunch of supporting characters on the periphery that The Reader Can Already reader can already will get their own stories The reader is supposed to be following Grady Shields and Vanessa Keaton as they meet and fall in love over the week that precedes his sister Mia s wedding to her brother Beck It s a little cheesy but once Biggles In The Antarctic you get hookedou want to find out what happens next and can t stop watching The plot even moves with the slowness of a television serial The reader gets to spend time with the inner thoughts of at last a half a dozen characters and the shifting POV further detracts from the focus on what is supposed to be the primary couple This definitely strips much of the emotion and connection to these characters and while it s good for building a series that will soon include a fifth book it didn t feel like the main characters ever really had much of a Chance To Stand Center to stand center I will also add that I don t like the diary aspect of the novel as written by Grace Sinclair an elderly character who has lived in St Dennis all her life The entries felt like a rehash of everything I had just read and screamed JUST IN CASE YOU WEREN T PAYING ATENTION DURING THE LAST COUPLE OF CHAPTERS These diary entries would have been a lot interesting if they had offered some insight or secret insider knowledge that is after all what diaries in novels are for but they never seem to function in a productive way in this book Even the little surprise twist Grace offers isn t that exciting and I don t know how it will lead to anything in future books Another somewhat forgettable aspect of the narrative is the mystery that needs to be solved The first key event takes place 175 pages into the story and Vanessa spends the next 100 pages minimizing the possibility that someone might actually want to hurt her When the climax of the story finally does arrive it happens uickly and there is very little suspense or uestion about how everything will be resolved Although this story never truly moved me it did catch my interest enough to want to know what happens to the citizens of St Dennis I like Mariah Stewart s writing style and the characters she has created feel real I am compelled to return to St Dennis to find out how everybody else s story goes This isn t a series however that rises above simple like and will send me rushing to recommend it all my fellow romance lovers It s a good story set in an interesting community and would be an entertaining read for a lazy weekend or beach read but that s as far as I would suggest it Did this book bore An Unofficial Encyclopedia of Strategy for Fortniters you It did for me Usually when I read something terrible I can basically get it done in less than two days and give a long winded speech on how it fails at romance and how it is degrading to feminism etc etc etcSoou get the point I gave It Three Stars Because three stars because author gets brownie points for statingWhat s pathetic is a man who is so small that he has to hurt someone else in order to feel like a man p 202 In this case I m glad she brings up abuse and tackles it head on Vanessa faced two shitty marriages the second almost getting killed by her ex husband It doesn t help that her female role model was Maggie who went through crappy marriages and didn t bother raising her children in the first place Maggie dumps her son Beck on Hal s door with a birth certificate and later sends Vanessa there because she can t help in any way or formThe sense of community was there but I was rather bored with the daily interactions Despite having a stalker destroying Vanessa s property and trying to get back at her St Dennis is a very dull town and even the newspaper editor bored me to tea.
