A Chesapeake Shores NovelLarge Print - 2009
Struggling in his role as a newly singlefather, former army medic Kevin O'Brien moves home to Chesapeake Shores. He wants a haven for himself and his small 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 - and she's had way too much experience with the type. Still, this charming O'Brien man and his son are almost impossible to resist.
But just as the barriers Kevin and Shanna have constructed to protect their fragile hearts begin to topple, someone from Shanna's past appears. Confronted with a threat to their hard-won serenity, the two face the toughest challenge of all - learning to trust again.
