Connor O'Brien is a high profile divorce attorney who lives in Baltimore. Because of his profession, he doesn't believe in marriage; it's just a piece of paper afterall. But when Heather moves out, with their son, he begins to realize how much he really loves her and wants her in his life.
However, it takes an accident to bring these two souls together. But can they set aside their differences and try and make another go of it?Or will they continue as they are, both wanting different paths in their lives? Driftwood Cottage is part of the Chesapeake Shores series, and the first novel I have read in the series. However, it does read as a stand-alone. This would be perfect for beach reading this summer! A light romance with two characters realistic characters trying to find their way in the world, doing the best they know how. A warm and lively read!
