4. A book with a single father.


    Jamie Valentine is the wildly successful author of self-help books advocating transparency in every relationship. But when her widowed mother passes away unexpectedly, Jamie discovers her own life has been based on a lie. Angry and deeply betrayed, she sets out to find the truth—which may be in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay. Cutting her most recent book tour short, Jamie books a room at the Inn at Sinclair’s Point, just outside St. Dennis.
    The death of Daniel Sinclair’s father forced him to take over the family inn, and his wife’s death left him a single parent of two children, so there’s little room for anything else in his life. His lovely new guest is intriguing, though, and he’s curious about the secret she’s clearly hiding. But in the end, Jamie and Dan could discover the greatest truth of all: that the search for one thing just might lead to the find of a lifetime—if you keep your heart open.

Mariah Stewart is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of thirty-one novels and three novellas and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal. She is a RITA finalist in romantic suspense and the recipient of the Award of Excellence for contemporary romance, a RIO Award for excellence in women's fiction, and a Reviewers Choice Award from Romantic Times Magazine. A three-time winner of the Golden Leaf Award presented by the New Jersey Romance Writers, Stewart was recently awarded their Lifetime Achievement Award (which placed her in their Hall of Fame along with former recipients Nora Roberts and Mary Jo Putney — very excellent company, indeed!)
She considers herself one lucky son of a gun to have landed the best job in the world: getting paid for making up stories. At home. In sweats and J. Crew flip flops. Could life be sweeter?
A native of Hightstown, NJ, Stewart is a member of Novelists, Inc, Thriller Writers International, Sisters in Crime, PASIC, the Romance Writers of America, the New Jersey Romance Writers, the Valley Forge Romance Writers, and the Washington Romance Writers. She lives with her husband and their two dogs — a geriatric golden retriever and a rambunctious rescue retriever mix — amidst the rolling hills of Chester County, PA where she savors country life, tends her gardens, and tries to avoid running the Amish buggies off the road with her SUV. 



My Thoughts....

I have been in love with Mariah Stewarts The Chesapeake Diaries Series from the beginning! Every time a new one comes out I can't wait to read it. The town is the type of town you hope you'd grow up in. It's all that we like about small-towns. In That Chesapeake Summer you really get to know Daniel Sinclair. He's been mentioned and had very small parts in other books but you just didn't get to know him as a person. In fact he always seemed cold and slightly uptight and uncaring. When you read That Chesapeake Summer you'll know that's nowhere close to the truth. I ended up loving him and I'm shocked by it. He's more then what he shows the world. In fact, he ends up being perfect for Jamie. She needs the type of person that stands by her side, yet will push her when needed. Their story is a very good one and I think you'll just love it. If you haven't yet read this series you don't want to miss them. Happy reading! 

I would love to talk with others who have read this series! We'd love for you to join us with our challenge. Just tell us a book that you read last month that fit one of our challenges. 


Make sure to stop at my fellow Book Club Thursday Blogger and see which book challenge they did this month. 


On June 18th we will be doing a giveaway! I hope you stop by and enter for a chance to win a free ebk of one of our reading challenge picks.
