Book Review and Giveaway! "Driftwood Cottage: A Chesapeake Shores Novel" by Sherryl Woods

About The Book:
Single mom Heather Donovan’s dreams of home and family are tantalizingly within reach when she settles in Chesapeake Shores. The welcoming arms of the boisterous, loving O’Brien clan embrace her and her son. But accepting their support seems to further alienate her son’s father, Connor O’Brien. His parents’ divorce and his career as a high-powered divorce attorney have left him jaded about marriage.

Then everything changes. Will the possibility of a future without Heather make Connor look at love and his career differently? Heather’s just about given up on her old dreams — of love, of family and especially of Driftwood Cottage, the home she secretly wishes were hers. It’s going to take a lot of persuasion — and some help from the O’Brien family — to make Heather believe that some dreams are worth fighting for.

Sherryl Woods is a master at telling stories about family life and romance, and her "Chesapeake Shores" series is a great example of this. "Driftwood Cottage" is book four in this ongoing series about the O' Brien family, a close-knit Irish clan that love, support, and cherish each other, but are not above the ocassional disagreement or scrap! 

Although this book is just part of the series, a first-time reader will be able to pick up on the family's history easily as they read about Connor and Heather's struggles to make their own family-unit complete.

Sherryl is a gifted storyteller and it is always a pleasure to read her work.

About The Author:

With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than 100 books in that distinctive setting, whether her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. She's also especially partial to small towns, wherever they may be. A member of Novelists Inc., Sisters in Crime and Romance Writers of America, Sherryl divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home, with its lighthouse view, in Key Biscayne, Florida. 

Be sure to check out her website at http://www.sherrylwoods.com/ for more info on her books and upcoming releases!


I'm tickled to be able to offer TWO copies of Sherryl's wonderful book as a giveaway.  Just leave your name and email address in the comments, and I'll draw for two winners on Wednesday, May 18th.  Good Luck!

My thanks to Nancy Berland Public Relations and  Magdalena Burns at PlannedTVArts for the review copy of this book. I was not compensated for my opinions.
