It's always a pleasure to visit with the O'Brien family, especially during the holiday season in Chesapeake Shores. While this fourth book in the series was shorter than the others, it still shared a compelling story line, including less romance and more about the institution of marriage and how it molds the relationships with more than just our spouse.
The connection and relationship struggles between Connor and his mom were believable and well done. However, his relationship with the other characters in the story (no spoilers) felt like it could have been explored a little more completely and left me wanting more. With that being said, it's entirely possible (and perhaps probable) that will be the primary focus of a future story in this 14-book series.
This wasn't my favorite book in the series thus far, but it was a nice segue from the first three books into what I hope will be a deeper look into the complexities of family life and love, something Sherryl Woods does so well through her engaging prose and dialogue.
