Heather Donovan thought her life in Chesapeake Shores would be better. Her son Mick would be able to interact with his father’s lively family, the O’Brien’s and Heather would finally be able to be the woman she is meant to be…even if it means alienating the one man who holds her heart-Connor O’Brien.

Connor O’Brien thought he had the perfect life with Heather and his son until she left him. Now Connor has to figure out what went wrong and try to find a way to convince Heather that they are meant to be together. Can Connor and the O’Brien family find a way to show Heather that the dreams she had with Connor are the future she needs?

DRIFTWOOD COTTAGE takes the reader back to Chesapeake Shores and the wonderful O’Brien’s Family. This time we find the final O’Brien sibling, Connor, facing that his convictions on marriage and his stubbornness are chasing the only woman he loves away. Can this stubborn man find a way to heal the breach that is between him and Heather? I love this series by Sherryl Woods. There is a deep family connection that the reader is drawn into whenever you pick up on of this author’s books. The writing is tight, the characters are intriguing and life like and the story flows nicely. What I enjoy the most is the relationships between the O’Brien family and the residents of Chesapeake Shores. The dynamics of this family leaves me in stitches, smiles and at times, some tears as well. The love they have for one another comes across the pages and steals into the readers hearts.

Meet Connor O’Brien, a successful divorce lawyer who is on the fast track for making partner when his love, Heather, walks away from the life they built together along with his son. Now Connor has to deal with his complicated feelings over marriage, commitment and find a way to show Heather he is the man she needs. I loved Connor when I first saw him in the first few books and was thrilled to see his story finally told, especially after some revelations in the book A ChESAPEAKE SHORES CHRISTMAS. Ms. Woods has a knack for creating characters that have depth and hidden vulnerabilities that are slowly revealed. Add in some wonderful secondary characters that keep the reader glued to the pages and you get an intriguing story that calls to you.

DRIFTWOOD COTTAGE is a tale of second chances, love and forgiveness between two people who find that the odds of a together they imagined is right in front of them if they trust what their hearts are saying and grab it. Ms. Woods is one of my favorite authors and delivers another winner in DRIFTWOOD COTTAGE. Run-don’t walk-to grab this wonderful addition to the Chesapeake Shores series. It is wonderfully addictive; I read this series cover to cover twice in one month.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of the book.
