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...

    Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".

    "Boring and predictable. Save your credit."

    Disappointing overall. Story was hard to believe. Characters uninteresting and unlikable overall. Not up to other Nora Roberts books.

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

    Story
    "Made me want to order a boat from these guys"
    Would you listen to Sea Swept again? Why?

    Yes, I love Nora's style of writing and the strong characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sea Swept?

    I have listened to all 4 in the series and think this first one is the strongest. I love the way she portrays the 10 year old Seth. I think she has his mindset nailed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Seth first comes home to the brothers and mayhem abounds.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost.


    Any additional comments?

    Nora Roberts work is a bit hit or miss for me so I was delighted that, after 4 misses and me about to abandon her, I found this series which has restored Nora to my favorite authors list.

    "Typical Nora Roberts"

    Typical Nora Roberts love trilogy. Can't wait for book two to continue the saga of the four Quinn brothers.
