The Long Way Home: Chesapeake Diaries, Book 6

As the only child of a wealthy investment manager, Ellie Chapman has never known anything other than a life of perfect privilege. But her years of good fortune come to an abrupt end when her father is exposed for swindling billions of dollars from innocent investors in a massive Ponzi scheme. And just like that, Ellie loses everything: money, job, home - even her fiancé, who's jailed as her father's partner in crime. With no job prospects on the horizon, no cash, and her family name in tatters, Ellie has only one place to go.

Publisher's Summary

As the only child of a wealthy investment manager, Ellie Chapman has never known anything other than a life of perfect privilege. But her years of good fortune come to an abrupt end when her father is exposed for swindling billions of dollars from innocent investors in a massive Ponzi scheme. And just like that, Ellie loses everything: money, job, home - even her fiancé, who's jailed as her father's partner in crime. With no job prospects on the horizon, no cash, and her family name in tatters, Ellie has only one place to go.

Sleepy St. Dennis, Maryland, is hardly where Ellie intends to stay, however. Keeping her identity a secret, she plans to sell the house her late mother left her in the small town and use the proceeds to move on with her life. Unfortunately, her ticket to a new beginning is in dire need of a laundry list of pricey improvements, many of which she'll have to do herself. And until the house on Bay View Road is fit to be sold, the sole place Ellie will be traveling is the hardware store.

But as the many charms of St. Dennis - not to mention Cameron O'Connor, the handsome local contractor who has secrets of his own - begin to work their magic, what begins as a lesson in do-it-yourself renovations might just end up as Ellie's very own rejuvenation.

    "A Light Summer Read Set in Coastal Town"
    Would you try another book from Mariah Stewart and/or Xe Sands?

    Yes - they are not intense nor page turners; however, light summer reads. The author does a great job with the descriptions, settings and the characters. Xe Sands does a great job as I would not read the book but purchased audio due to Xe Sands as she has a nice voice and easy to listen to.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mariah Stewart before, how does this one compare?

    Yes. I like Xe Sands. Very similar to the others


    Which character – as performed by Xe Sands – was your favorite?

    Grace - she is a riot!


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More intense relationship between two main characters. Not a lot of real emotion - just an overview. Would like more from the author - challenges, obstacles, emotion, plot and build up.
