Bree O'Brien is glad she came home for the opening of her sister's inn. She needed to be around her family. Her recent play bombed in Chicago, and her mentor/lover Matt Demming has been less than supportive. She is burnt out and emotionally spent. Time back in Chesapeake Shores will allow her to recover.
Once she is back home, doubts about her career set in. Maybe the critics were right. Maybe her first play was a fluke. She is not sure she should go back to Chicago at all. Then an emergency at the inn shows her a new direction. She decides to open Flowers on Main. She always loved gardening and flower arrangements. When her last-minute floral designs for a wedding are well-received, she is filled with new ideas. There is only one reason to reconsider her plans – Jake Collins.
As owner of the closest flower wholesaler, Jake is the logical choice for her new business. Unfortunately, they have a past that includes a lot of drama, tears, and unresolved issues. Jake will barely tolerate her presence in town. How will he ever work with her to make Flowers on Main a success? Will he ever forgive her?
Author Sherryl Woods brings us another emotionally charged story in her Chesapeake Shores series. While Bree and Jake work on their issues, we also see Mick and Megan slowly finding their way back together. Mick has finally realized what his business has cost in terms of family, and he is determined to mend his ways. Megan never stopped loving the brash Irishman, but cannot believe that he is a changed man. It will take more than some smooth talk before she is ready to give her heart again.
Readers can anticipate several more highly-charged passionate novels in this series. I am looking forward to every one.
