Publisher's Summary

Seth Quinn is finally home....

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.

Critic Reviews

"[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)

OMG!!! THE BEST IF THE QUAD!!!

I've read and listened to at least 50-60 Nora Roberts/J. D. Robb books, I have to say this was my absolute favorite. Not heavy on sex and that's great but boy oh boy, heavy on emotions.
I'm so happy all her fans asked for Seth's story. I came late to this party but I'm truly thankful for this special story.

Enjoyed the book. The audio version was very good

One of Nora Roberts better series. And Chesapeake Blue is the best of the 4.

James Daniels narrates very well. The men sound like men and the females sound like strong females not like a mocking male voice.

Great series

Love this 4-book series by Nora Roberts. Her books are always great but sometimes the narrators are not too effective. Love narrators of this series. Voices are emotional and believably unique while the storylines while not always surprising are pleasing and filled with emotion.

Great ending to a heart-warming story

This book completes the story in a predictable but still heart warming way. And on top of the old story the narrator's voice and reading was fantastic!! I really enjoyed listening to this book.

Seth is my favorite Quinn brother

I love this story about Seth so much that it would be hard for anything to decrease my enjoyment. I agree with other comments that the accents are a bit off but it wasn't enough to ruin the audiobook for me. Other than the incongruous accents I enjoyed the book very much.

Predictable but probably a good beach choice

Liked the narrator for the other three books in the series better but this narrator was OK. The books have gotten to be pretty predictable by the time you get to number four but still not a bad read.
