Connor O’Brien is the next project for the O’Brien clan of Chesapeake Shores. When Heather Donavan, Connor’s live in girlfriend, leaves Connor and moves to Chesapeake Shores with their son, Connor is upset. Heather knows Connor doesn’t believe in marriage but since the birth of her son, a life without marriage and family is not something she wants. When she settles in Chesapeake Shores, the meddling O’Brien clan happily embraces her and Mick which seems to make matters worse for her and Connor. The O’Brien’s are unlikely to give up and are focused on getting these two love birds back together, no matter what.

Connors jaded views about marriage quickly start to change when he realizes he has a real possibility of life without Heather. In the midst of this realization, the tables turn and the stakes are high. Will Connor and Heather reunite in love or will their stubborn natures keep them apart? Are dreams really worth fighting for? Can a person change?

Driftwood Cottage is the newest installment in the Chesapeake Shores series. In this novel, Connor and Heathers story is finalized, though not without it’s quirks. My biggest issue with this novel was its repetitive nature. I quickly tired of reading how against marriage Connor is. It is clear how he feels and it is clear how Heather feels. The repetitive nature of these feelings in this story seemed to delay the real story rather than add to it. Other than this, the story was an enjoyable and easy read. The meddlesome O’Brien family is as loveable and annoying as always. The characters will keep you on your toes as you root for Connor and Heather to settle their differences and re-unite.

The book mostly stands on its own, though I think this one would be best read within its series. Reading this series gives the reader a deep connection to all of the O’Brien’s which adds to the story. Those who follow Sherryl’s Chesapeake Shores series will enjoy this novel. If you haven’t read the series its worth the read. The novel, much like Sherryl’s other novels, is a clean and basic contemporary romance. The heat level is barely a one. Overall, it is an enjoyable, light weight read that will put a smile on your face when all is said and done.
