It's been a long journey. After a harrowing boyhood with his drug-addicted mother, he'd been taken in by the Quinn family, growing up with three older brothers who'd watched over him with love.
Now a grown man returning from Europe as a successful painter, Seth is settling down on Maryland's Eastern Shore, surrounded once again by Cam, Ethan, and Phillip, their wives and children - all the blessed chaos of the extended Quinn clan. Finally, he's back in the little blue-and-white house where there's always a boat at the dock, a rocker on the porch, and a dog in the yard.
Still, a lot has changed in St. Christopher since he's been gone - and the most intriguing change of all is the presence of Dru Whitcomb Banks. A city girl who has opened a florist shop in this seaside town, she craves independence and the challenge of establishing herself without the influence of her wealthy connections. In Seth, she sees another kind of challenge - a challenge she can't resist.
But storms are brewing that are about to put their relationship to the test. Dru's past has made her sensitive to deception and slow to trust. And Seth's past has made him a target of blackmail - as a secret he's kept hidden for years threatens to explode, destroying his new life and his new love.

"[Roberts has] once again crafted a poignant and often humorous tale. True to style, she has also thrown in just enough of the paranormal to tantalize. Guaranteed to please the many fans who were waiting for Seth's story." (Library Journal)
"James Daniels's voice conveys convincing female desire, as well as rough male camaraderie, and singes the listener's ears with Roberts's trademark passion." (AudioFile)
Absolutely love this book, the series!! I've laughed, I've cried, Nora Roberts is an Amazing author! Out of the four books I can't decide on a favorite, because they are all my favorite.!! You've got to get used to the language in the books, but the pain in the characters feels so real, the joys, the love, the spirits of Ray and Stella Quinn. And it made me cry when Seth had said his dog foolish had died, and then again when they brought him back when Seth was sitting on the dock. These books keep you wanting to read them over and over again! Which I have at least 30 times!!;) I had the books in paper back a few times, unfortunately I wore them out til they were completely unreadable! Then I downloaded the series (4) books on my Samsung Tablet for Nook! I love all of the Nook tablets! Any way, Ms. Roberts, Please write more stories like the Quinn's!! I love your books!!!
Seth is finally where he belongs❤️
Nora Roberts never disappoints. Perfect ending to a lovely families' story.
Second time listening to this series... Excellent both times !
I enjoyed the follow up of Seth.
I enjoyed when Seth finally came clean to his family and fessed up about Gloria.
Anna, I think. She is funny, witty, strong and doesn't mince words. At the same time, she is loving, caring protective.
The confrontation of Seth's mother in the bar by the family.
Laugh but not cry, that happened in the earlier books.
I was continually more disappointed with each book in the series because when it got to the climax, the story ended quickly. I would have wanted to have the wedding be part of the ending.
While each of these books could stand alone. It's a pleasure to read them in order. Once again I can't say enough about the narrators of each of them. James Daniels did a great job, just as the other's in bringing the story home. This family is what everyone longs for their families to be. When all of the Quinn's get involved in a problem look out, it's going to get taken care of. Tickled my funny bone when the dead grandma started talking to Seth. The way Nora Roberts ended this book makes me wonder If she might come back with another one. Wow if she does I will be first in line to get it.
I loved the entire series..
Seth meeting Drew.
The end when the family was all together.
Loved the story line. I am familiar with the Eastern Shore and I vividly could relate to the scenery
I read....a Lot!
it was great to reconnect with the whole family
Cam & Seth 'making up' after an argument
yes, as usual
I had read the 4 book series years ago - revisited as audio books to keep me company while I walk. Very well written - very emotional
