When her last two plays are dismal failures and her relationship with her temperamental mentor falls apart, writer Bree O'Brien abandons Chicago and the regional theater where she hoped to make a name for herself to return home. Opening Flowers on Main promises to bring her a new challenge and a new kind of fulfillment. But not all is peaceful and serene in Chesapeake Shores, with her estranged mother on the scene and her ex-lover on the warpath. Jake Collins has plenty of reasons to want Bree out of his life, but none of those are a match for the one reason he wants her to stay: he's still in love with her. Jake might be able to get past that old hurt if he knew Bree was home to stay, but is she? The only way to know for sure is to take a dangerous leap of faith. From Booklist Bree O’Brien’s self-image is tied up in her work, so when her newest play flops, she is emotionally shattered. Returning to Chesapeake Shores to regroup, she rediscovers her love of flower arranging and impulsively opens a florist shop, only to discover that her first love, Jake, owns the best source of plants. While they struggle with past hurts and continued attraction, Bree’s divorced parents also embrace a second chance at love. Woods continues to explore the issues dividing the dysfunctional O’Briens in the second installment of her heartwarming Chesapeake Shores contemporary romance series (The Inn at Eagle Point, 2009). --Lynne Welch 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.
