When her last two plays are dismal failures and her relationship with her temperamental mentor falls apart, writer Bree O’Brien abandons Chicago and the regional theater where she hoped to make a name for herself to return home. Opening Flowers on Main promises to bring her a new challenge and a new kind of fulfillment.
But not all is peaceful and serene in Chesapeake Shores, with her estranged mother on the scene and her ex-lover on the warpath. Jake Collins has plenty of reasons to want Bree out of his life, but none of those are a match for the one reason he wants her to stay: he’s still in love with her.
Jake might be able to get past that old hurt if he knew Bree was home to stay, but is she? The only way to know for sure is to take a dangerous leap of faith.
My Rating: 4 out of 5
A great second book in the series. The only issue I had with this story was the out of nowhere comments about Megan's innocent interactions with a stranger right before she left Mick. This wasn't commented at all in the first book and I would of imagined Jess would of used that against her mom. I felt like it was an after thought from the first book and in truth it wasn't even necessary. But that was a side story in the book so it wasn't too irritating. Jake and Bree's story is realistic and emotional and their paths back to each other is hard. I enjoyed reading all their up and downs and seeing the other members of the family grow. I can't wait to read Kevins book next!
