Reading Corner ~ Book 9 of 12

I made the goal to read one book a month for the year and so far I've done nine of the twelve.  Not too shabby.  I haven't blogged about them all, but I'm starting back up with that now, so here goes.

Flowers on Main - by: Sherryl Woods


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.

This is the second book in the series.  I started it in May and it took me until the beginning of October to finish it.  Not because it's a bad book or series.  Not at all.  But, because we had so much going on over the summer I just didn't have the time or energy to read.

Anyway, this WAS a good book despite how long it took me to finish it.  It had a pretty predictable plot as they all seem to, but I love the setting in a small town off the Chesapeake Bay.  It's kind of a local setting to me, so I love it just a little bit more because of that.  And, I'm starting to really feel connected to the characters now, so I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in this series.  It's gonna be a series that I'm sad when it ends, I can already tell.
