To Be Released: May 31, 2011
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "In the close-knit community of Chesapeake Shores,
Maryland, Susie O’Brien and Mack Franklin’s “not dating” claim befuddles everyone, especially since the two spend every spare minute together. Susie’s thrilled when their friendship finally heats up. Then, just when happily-everafter seems within reach, Mack loses the job he loves and Susie faces a devastating diagnosis.
But O’Briens always unite in a crisis. Even her cousin Jess, Susie’s rival for most of their lives, becomes her staunchest supporter—especially when Mack’s former lover comes to town. The stakes are higher than ever before, but Susie’s definitely up to the challenge…as long as Mack’s right there by her side."
