Product Description


Jess O'Brien has overcome a lot—the challenges of attention deficit disorder, the near bankruptcy of her beloved Inn at Eagle Point and her self-perception as a screwup in a family of overachievers. Now she's ready to share the future with a man. Her friends persuade her to join a dating service—but she gets no takers! Which is fine with her childhood friend, psychologist Will Lincoln, who's already chosen the perfect man for Jess: himself.
Will has loved Jess practically forever. He knows her faults and her strengths. But for all Will's sincerity and charm, Jess fears he views her as some psychological case study. With her family and the town of Chesapeake Shores behind him, Will finally makes his case. But is it enough to convince Jess to take the risk of a lifetime?

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. 

My Review

Thanks to the wonderful galley review program at Net Galley I have been introduced to wonderful new-to-me authors who I had not read before.  I have now discovered the writings of Sherryl Woods.  Moonlight Cove is part of Ms. Wood's Chesapeake Shores series.  Although this was book six in the series it was not necessary to have read the previous books.  Now that I have read Moonlight Cove I wish I had started at the beginning of the series so that the characters would mean more to me.  Will definitely have to do that with the other series written by Sherryl Woods.

This was a beautiful love story of a woman discovering that love was right in front of her all the time.  The story of Jess O'Brien and Will Lincoln was was not the only story told here though.  The O'Brien family who are the main characters in this Chesapeake Shores series are all updated.  There is new love as well for Jess's uncle with one of her close friends.  The story does focus primarily on Jess, her business, her struggles with ADD, and her perception as flighty by her family.  It is a warm and uplifting love story filled with the love of family as well.

Highly recommend this heartwarming story and I'm looking forward to reading more of Sherryl Woods.
