From PA to NJ to MD

That Chesapeake Summer by Mariah Stewart
: June 23, 2015 by Pocket Books
Series: The Chesapeake Diaries #9
I may not read a ton of romance series, but have been reading this one and have been having fun with it. I've enjoyed pieces of every single one, but this one has been my favorite so far out of all the ones I've read.

I think a lot of that is because the romance felt real. Yes, you knew who was going to fall in love. And yes, the did have somewhat cheesy professions (self-help author and the owner of an inn). But the relationship made sense and they didn't fall in insta-love.

Plus there's a bit of a mystery that I appreciated and took me a while to figure out. Once I did though it made complete sense, that I really should have seen in coming. Definitely a great addition to the book for me.

Since this is the 4th book I've read of the series, I loved getting to see all the supporting characters. As cliched as I know this is going to sound, these books really feel like you're back home catching up with old friends.

I still have 4 books left of the series to read, at least till next summer with the 10th comes out, and I can't wait to read them. Especially knowing that the next ones I'll be reading are about the ice cream maker, cupcake baker, and wedding planner. Talk about the perfect romance novel professions, right?

Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!


  1. I started reading this series because of you and have loved it so much. I just want to live in St. Dennis :)

  2. I read the first in the series (liked it) and then was offered this one for blog tour. I really liked it!
