Publisher's Summary

A champion boat racer, Cameron Quinn traveled the world spending his winnings on champagne and women. But when his dying father calls him home to care for Seth, a troubled young boy not unlike Cameron once was, his life changes overnight.

After years of independence, Cameron has to learn to live with his brothers again, while he struggles with cooking, cleaning, and caring for a difficult boy. Old rivalries and new resentments flare between Cameron and his brothers, but they try to put aside their differences for Seth's sake.

In the end, a social worker, as tough as she is beautiful, will decide Seth's fate. She has the power to bring the Quinns together - or tear them apart...

    "Very good read"

    And then it ended. I was still reading and thought the story was still going to wind down and it was all gone! A lovely read, I just wanted it to carry on.

    A lovely story of family (and men) pulling together. Can't wait for the 2nd one.

    Story
    "captured by the series"
    Would you listen to Sea Swept again? Why?

    This was a great book that drew me into the series... it was enjoyed way too fast!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The Quinns are an interesting group of people and a clear picture that sometimes famlies are more than those born with your blood.

    "My favorite Nora Roberts series"

    The Chesapeake Bay series is my favorite and the narrator David Stuart does an excellent job bringing the characters to life.

    Story
    "Aggressive characters and meandering plot"
    What would have made Sea Swept better?

    Not focusing on relationships that revolve around an overly aggressive lead male.


    Has Sea Swept turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Nope. I generally love Nora Roberts' writing, but this one was very disappointing.


    Did David Stuart do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    It was a challenging story to narrate with three brothers, but he did a good job. The special effects used for the father's voice were just weird and creepy.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Look at a different Nora Roberts title instead of this one.

    I have listened to the series before. There are some stories you just have to revisit. This is one.
