Hannah Matthews is undeniably tough-a single mom, a top-tier PR exec, a breast cancer survivor. On the job and in her family she prides herself on being go-to Hannah, who can handle any crisis. But with her eighty-five-year-old grandmother balking at going into a retirement home, her twenty-year-old daughter unexpectedly pregnant and an old flame suddenly underfoot, Hannah is facing a few crises of her own. And being back home on Seaview Key is most definitely adding to the stress. Luke Stevens has some serious issues, as well. While he was serving in Iraq, his wife dumped him for his best friend, his kids are furious because he left them, and he shared his medical practice with the man who's now sleeping with his wife. Seaview Key, where he grew up, seems like the perfect place to hide out until he makes some decisions and gets his life back on track. The last thing he expects is to fall in love...with his old hometown and with Hannah. Sometimes, though, the unexpected is just what it takes to start over...and to heal the heart.
About the Author
With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than one hundred books in that distinctive setting, whether her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. She s also especially partial to small towns, wherever they may be. With her Chesapeake Shores series, Woods has created a fictional setting on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, an area not that far from her Virginia home and yet another area dear to her heart. One of her cousins, in fact, was one of the original authors of the Chesapeake Bay Act, designed to preserve this vast estuary. Sherryl is a member of Novelists Inc. and Sisters in Crime. She divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home with its lighthouse view in Key Biscayne, Florida. Wherever I am, if there s no water in sight, I get a little antsy, she says. Sherryl also loves hearing from readers.
