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-ever-after 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.
My Rating: 3 out of 5
This book brought out a lot of emotions in me. I found myself crying a few times. The story is heart retching but romantic an sweet. I was very happy with the ending. The only reason it gets a 3 out of 5 is because the whole what if he doesn't love me or the what if I show my emotions to him and he hurts me worries get a little over done and annoying. It could of been so much better if there was less whining from Suzie about how Mack felt about her!
