Willow Brook Road by Sherry Woods (Chesapeake Shores #13)

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods sweeps readers away with the story of a beloved member of the O'Brien family as she claims the life she's always dreamed of

Spirited, spontaneous Carrie Winters has grown up under the watchful eyes of not only her grandfather Mick O'Brien, but the entire town of Chesapeake Shores.

Now that she's home from Europe, a glamorous fashion career behind her and her heart broken, there seem to be far too many people watching to see if she'll live up to the expectations her family has for her.

As if that weren't enough pressure, Carrie finds herself drawn to sexy, grief-stricken Sam Winslow, who is yearning for someone to help him raise the nephew who's unexpectedly come into his life after a tragedy.

With her own life in turmoil, is Carrie really ready to take on a new career and a new man? Or is Sam exactly what she needs to create the strong, loving family she's always wanted?

My review:  Willow Brook Road by Sherry Woods  (Chesapeake Shores #13)


I like to visit with the O'Briens of Chesapeake Shores again.  This is #13 of the series.  I have not read the early ones but they are easy to pick up and read if your new to the series, only read a few or if you never miss any.

The O'Briens are a big Irish family who get together and eat Sunday meals. There are generations of them now.  Lots of business in town are owned by them.

This Carrie's story.  She has come back home from heart break and a career in Paris.  She is not sure what she wants to do now.  She babysits her nephew a few times a week while her twin is in medical school.

It is also the story of Sam Winslow.  Who just started a job at the local newspaper office when his sister and brother-in-law died and left custody of his nephew Bobby to him .  Bobby is six years old and unhappy.  Sam never planned on having children.

Sam's boss Mack and his wife Susie (Carrie's cousin) were going to adopt a little girl and the birth mother changed her mind.  Susie wants to be close to Bobby, but Sam has already met Carrie.

Lots of drama, family that make you just want to keep visiting with and catching up to old friends.  I really like how it all came together.  I admit to shedding some tears.  Only part I did not like was that it ended.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of Willow Brook Road.
