Struggling in his role as a newly single father, former army medic Kevin O'Brien moves home to Chesapeake Shores. He wants a haven for himself and his toddler son, surrounded by the family he knows he can count on, and a future that's nothing like his past. But Kevin is suddenly facing a risk he hadn't anticipated, in the form of Main Street bookseller Shanna Carlyle.
Shanna immediately recognizes Kevin as a wounded soul—she's had way too much experience with the type. Still, this charming O'Brien man and his son are almost impossible to resist.
Then, just when the barriers are toppling, someone from Shanna's past appears. Confronted with a threat to their hard-won serenity, Kevin and Shanna face their toughest challenge—learning to trust again.
I have read the two previous book of the Chesapeake Shores series by Sheryl Woods, The Inn at Eagle Point and Flowers on Main. I enjoyed both of the books and I was expecting to enjoy Harbor Lights just as much.
But it wasn't meant to be. I found it lacked chemistry between the hero and heroine, the plot seemed to be all over the place, and it really didn't resolve anything. No rotten tomatoes, please. It's just my opinion. I'm really disappointed, I was expecting so much.
I hate when this happens. Argh!
