Product Description

From Library Journal

After a five-year absence, Seth Quinn has returned home from Europe a world-renowned artist. He's ready to settle down in the same picturesque town on the Bay where the three step-brothers who raised him now live. Soon, Seth meets beautiful, independent Druscilla "Dru" Whitcomb Banks and falls in love with her almost immediately. Life takes on an idyllic glow until someone from his past begins blackmailing him again. Roberts, a best-selling author and the recipient of countless honors, including numerous RITAs as well as the Romance Writers of America Lifetime Achievement Award, has once again crafted a poignant and often humorous tale. True to style, she has also thrown in just enough of the paranormal to tantalize. Guaranteed to please the many fans who were waiting for Seth's story, this sequel to the original trilogy (Sea Swept, Rising Tides, Inner Harbor) is also an excellent stand-alone title. Libraries of all sizes will want to add this book to their collections and make sure they have the other three books in the series, too. Shelley Mosley, Glendale P.L., AZ

Review

You can't bottle wish fulfilment, but Nora Roberts certainly knows how to put it on the page --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I am a very big fan of the trilogy of Quinn brothers.....each book got into such detail about their personalities and love interests that you can't help but get sucked in! With Chesapeake Blue, I think it's been such an awaited event in coming out, that I put a lot of hope into it. It was good...don't get me wrong....I love Nora Roberts...however, the love story was okay. It was great to see all the brothers with their families. The appearance of the blackmailing Gloria was a little too much.
I think I expected this incredible ending and was a little disappointed with it.....the whole fire thing was unnecessary I thought....because it destroyed Seth's drawings as a young boy, which at that time, was his way of starting to heal. I honestly would have liked to see Gloria drive herself off a cliff!
I did love the fact though, that it was Stella this time that appeared rather than Ray.
I do still love the Quinn men - Ethan captured my heart the most - and was glad to see the book wrapped up each of their lives.

I confess that I want to complain about this trilogy/quadrilogy largely because of my un-PC affection for it. These books offer brief (and, alas, imaginary) fulfillments of three of my long-cherished wishes: close extended family, a job that lets me have evenings off (maybe with a beer in hand) and both of the above in Chesapeake country. (I already have the great relationship, but one of the sorrows of adult life is finding that even spectacular relationships don't fill every gap.)
Okay, so Roberts doesn't know Chesapeake country as well as people seem to think--no, you CAN'T sail in a fifteen-foot skiff from Tangier Sound to the Little Choptank before lunchtime, and if Ethan's really a waterman he'd know you haul up your heavy stuff with winches, not wenches. Okay, so the real reason the Brothers Quinn all have to be self-employed is because the lower Shore's economically depressed. So the Quinn family, despite its tormented background, is just a little too perfect: what, NO learning disabilities, sexual dysfunctions, drug problems, power struggles, school cutbacks, or marital struggles for dominance? Everybody survives those heinous childhoods without any therapy at all and comes out more mentally healthy than anyone has a right to be? (Incidentally, that's why we probably won't get Aubrey's story; as the eldest of the first generation of Non-Conflicted Quinns, she has no childhood betrayals to overcome.) And who took care of all those kids anyway while Anna was working long hours in Princess Anne and Cam was at the boatyard? Even Grace might blanch at the prospect of nursemaiding seven kids.
These are all genuine flaws in the books, including Chesapeake Blue, but as an exilt from Chesapeake and extended family alike, I'm eerily forgiving of this series.

After globetrotting for several years succesful artist Seth Quinn has finally returned home to his beloved family. He finds nothing much has changed since he left.His family is a little older but still tightly knit and boisterous as ever. However, one thing did change in his absence.The sleepy town of St. Chris has a new resident, the mysterious and reserved Drusilla Whitcomb Banks.
Dru is the daughter of a wealthy and powerful Washington family and because of her family's wealth and connections she has learned the hard way the perils of letting people get too close and personal. So, while Seth is instantly smitten with her she tries to keep him at arms length. But Dru did not count on being so attracted to the sinfully handsome and extremely charming Seth and she had no idea how determined he could be. Before long she finds she can't stop thinking about him and his wonderful family. She is utterly charmed with the down to earth, affectionate Quinns. Although at first she feels like a fish out of water with such a large, loud, outspoken family so different from her own but she is soon regarded as Seth's girl and so therefore a part of the family. Dru has no idea what to do with that and the dangerous feelings Seth is awakening in her, feelings she swore she would never allow herself to feel for anyone again. On the other hand, Seth does not question his feelings for Dru but someone from his past reappears in his life threatening his family and because of his connection to him, Dru herself.
I thought it would be hard to pick a favorite book from an author with such an impressive backlist. But after reading this book it was actually very easy. This book is just an absolute joy to read.

A few years ago, a friend gave me two Nora Roberts books and told me to read them, that they were excellent. One was SeaSwept and the other was Rising Tides. I read the inside flap and thought Nah, maybe sometime if I have nothing to read I'll read them. They just didn't seem romantic enough for me to read as I'm a die hard romantic and like my books to have lots of it. In a bookstore a couple weeks ago, I saw Roberts had a new book out. Chesapeake Blue. I bought it and began to read it a few days ago and could hardly put it down. Seth is so witty and charming and lovable that you can't wait to hear what he says or does next. As I read it, I put it together that this was book number 4 in a series. I went to my bookcase and found the first two sitting there collecting dust. From what I've read here on other reviews about this book, I can't wait to read the first three. I finished Chesapeake Blue this morning and am now going to start at the beginning. I can't wait to read Cam's story. This book was a real piece of work and you won't be disappointed in it. But beware...if you don't have a lot of time for reading, don't start it until you do otherwise nothing around the house is going to get done till you're through with it.
