Single mom Heather Donovanâ€™s dreams of home and family are
tantalizingly within reach when she settles in Chesapeake
Shores. The welcoming arms of the boisterous, loving
Oâ€™Brien clan embrace her and her son. But accepting their
support seems to further alienate her sonâ€™s father, Connor
Oâ€™Brien. His parentsâ€™ divorce and his career as a high-
powered divorce attorney have left him jaded about
Then everything changes. Will the possibility of a future
without Heather make Connor look at love and his career
differently? Heatherâ€™s just about given up on her old
dreams â€” of love, of family and especially of Driftwood
Cottage, the home she secretly wishes were hers. Itâ€™s
going to take a lot of persuasion â€” and some help from the
Oâ€™Brien family â€” to make Heather believe that some dreams
are worth fighting for.

Re: Driftwood Cottage
I want to read this story for its another good book that sherryl Woods always gives to her readers. they are mostly about friendship and love relationships between people that I can relate to. Most of her stories are so deep and I can relate to in my life, and I fall in love with each book that she writes and of course I want another one right away, and i know an author can't write that fast. I enjoy her books alot.

Fans of the Chesapeake Shores series and the large and meddling Oâ€™Brien clan have been waiting for Connor's story for quite some time. We have know Connor as the son still angry at the mom who left and understandably disillusioned with marriage. In A Chesapeake Shores Christmas, we were introduced to the problems between Heather and Connor who share a son but can't seem to share a life.
Driftwood Cottage provides a more than satisfying resolution to Heather and Conner's story. Heather moves to Chesapeake Shores to open a quilt shop and so little Mick can be near his father's family. Connor loves Heather but can't agree with her need for marriage. As they struggle to find a way to share a son and family, their love for each other can't be ignored. The O'Brien's were a strong presence through out the story and I enjoyed their scheming to get the couple together. Heather and Connor make a good couple, and their struggles ring true. I think you will enjoy this book and I'm glad to report we have more visits to Chesapeake Shores to look forward to.

I agree with Maria's comments about Driftwood Cottage. I was glad to see resolution of Connor and Heather's story, but was a tad disappointed in how long it took Heather to realize that Connor was finally ready to commit.
Marriage is a big commitment and even though I was disappointed in Heather's refusal to marry I was glad to see that she had good reasons as to why she couldn't/wouldn't commit and was eventually able to work her way through them.
Now I'm eagerly anticipating the remainder of this year's Chesapeake Shore books, and getting to visit with favorite characters again and again.
