Struggling in his role as a newly single father, former army medic Kevin O’Brien moves home to Chesapeake Shores. He wants a haven for himself and his toddler son, surrounded by the family he knows he can count on and a future that’s nothing like his past. But Kevin is suddenly facing a risk he hadn’t anticipated...in the form of Main Street bookseller Shanna Carlyle.
Shanna immediately recognizes Kevin as a wounded soul - she’s had way too much experience with the type. Still, this charming O’Brien man and his son are almost impossible to resist. Then, just when the barriers are toppling, someone from Shanna’s past appears. Confronted with a threat to their hard-won serenity, Kevin and Shanna face their toughest challenge - learning to trust again.

Former army medic Kevin moves home to Chesapeake Shores with his two-year-old son Davy following his wife's death in Iraq. Devastated and guilt-ridden, Kevin wants a safe haven for himself and his son, and no place is better than home with his large Irish-American family. He knows he can count on them for support, and the seaside community offers a future very different from his past. He doesn't count on finding bookseller Shanna Carlyle.
Shanna has left an alcoholic husband and a stepson she adores, and she's gun shy about becoming involved with anyone else, especially someone with capital B baggage. However, what begins as a wary friendship, gets a huge boost from the meddling O'Brien clan who want happiness for their brother and son. And Shanna finds little Davy and his wounded father hard to resist. But just when they are becoming comfortable with their new-found relationship, trouble from Shanna's past threatens to destroy what they've built.
Ms. Woods does it again with this tale of the irrepressible O'Brien clan. Each new story brings another O'Brien into focus while continuing the stories of the rest of the family. At times the meddling is over the top, but that's the way of the O'Briens, and Ms. Woods creates charming, three-dimensional characters.
I enjoyed Shanna's character and her journey to love, and while I felt Kevin's change of heart seemed rushed, the ending was immensely satisfying.
The books I've read in this series are light romance with some humor and very little adult content. They're books that can be read in a few enjoyable hours.

This is good, escapist, fun reading. It is not particularly challenging but it does not set out to be. If easy reading and feelgood romance is what you want then this is a good enough example. The whole set of books which introduces you to a town and a raft of characters gives the author a bit of time to include some sub-plots and additional characters and the books benefit from this.
(Incidentally, in my Kindle edition, the prologue is found at the end of the main story ... I was surprised that the first words of the book were "eighteen months later" and when I reached the end I discovered why !!)
