I happened to read the 4th book in the Chesapeake Bay series, Chesapeake Blue first. I enjoyed the characters and the theme of these books so much that I continued to read the rest of the series. Sea Swept focuses on the oldest of four adopted brother, Cameron Quinn. The themes prevalant in this series are commitment, perseverance, compromise, and unconditional love. Enjoyed the setting for the stories -- a small, quiet town along the shore.
Reading Nora Roberts is great, romantic escapism. This series was especially fun because the lead characters are men. They are well written and an enjoyable change from her usual female leads.
This first in the seris of 4 introduces you to the Quinn family built on love, tradition, and honor. The story of 4 boys/men brought together by an extraordinary couple who bond and become family.
Nora Roberts writes in a smoothly flowing way. This book is the 1st in the Chesapeake Bay series and wow, what a start. Excellent! Love, sex, family, this book has it all. If you know her writing, don't miss this one. If you have never tried Nora Roberts, this is a great way to start. You will zip thru this book, and be pacing the floors waiting for the next in the series.
If you haven't read the Chesapeake Bay series yet, I highly recommend it. Books are about 3 brothers (each book focuses on one brother) and their father dies. The father had just adopted a son, Seth, and now it is up to them to raise the son. There are romances but they also go through all the trials of being single parents (especially single fathers). I read one after the other and couldn't put them down! By the way, there is a 4th book about Seth when he is grown up.
