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...

I'm becoming a Nora fan

Where does Sea Swept rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Nora Roberts seems to have a good formula for romantic stories, yet the plots are so different each time. It's similar to, yet different from, her other books.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book and plan to look up others in the Chesapeake Bay series

LOVE THIS SERIES

This, the first of 4 books in the series is my favorite. It sets the foundation, and introduced the main characters of the series. Cameron is a man's man. He loved his parents unconditionally; therefore he's able to love his brothers unconditionally. Despite the questionable circumstances under which Seth came into the family, he was accepted simply because their father asked them to take care of him. That settled it. Cam's less than stellar housekeeping skills are hilarious; the dishwasher scene is classic. This book will make you laugh and cry, which in my book makes for an excellent read/listen.

I read all four, and am looking forward to experiencing them in their audio version.

I haven't even finished this book yet...

I am almost finished with listening to this book and can say, I love it. The social issues and emotional issues this novel covers will have you laughing, cheering, and crying.

excellent

Great Story Great narrator - I've read this book then bought it on tape and now have bought it again for my mp3 as I love the story. This is the first book in a really good series. Romance for sure but with some super personalities and very well written. One of the very best.

Great descriptions of Maryland Eastern Shore

What did you love best about Sea Swept?

The setting and the fit of the story with the Maryland Shore.

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

The scenes between Cal and his father.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A family that stands together without one common gene.

Any additional comments?

Outstanding Series

Of all of the series books written by Nora Roberts this is my favorite one. I love how she tells each brothers stories. This first book in the series starts with Cameron Quinn. It tells about the tragedy of losing his father, reuniting with his brothers, gaining a new little brother, finding love and started a new business. I go back and listen to the series once every two to three months and hear something that I didn't the previous times. Even my husband and his friend enjoyed listening to them. I recommend listening to them all. Starting with Sea Swept, Inner Harbor, Rising Tides and Chesapeake Blue.

Great Story/Saga

Although dated, I lived during the time this story is set. It is accurate and thought provoking even for today. It certainly will become one of the best series Nora Roberts has written. This is the first book and will leave you wanting more.
