Cheaspeake Blue by Nora Roberts

(I swear, I'm reading more than just romance. Romance is just the easiest thing to talk about when you are functioning on no sleep (Hi pregnancy insomnia? I hate you.) Hopefully I'll come back to the others one day.)

Chesapeake Blue (The Chesapeake Bay Saga, Book 4)So. I recently posted that I had reread Nora Robert's Chesapeake Bay Saga but that I never got around to reading the final installment - Chesapeake Blue (The Chesapeake Bay Saga, Book 4) about Seth, the kid from the first three. On a recent trip to the library I picked it up (in large print no less!) and quickly read through it. It's nice to have the followup and to see how Seth turned out, and it's amazing to me that aside from the ages of the siblings that you really can't date the books to any one decade. I was concerned that it would be hard for her to pull off a story about a kid who was now an adult without making the adults from the first set unappealing. As it turns out, Roberts handles it just fine.

In this final entry, Seth has been living in Europe as an artist for the last several years. His work has become famous but he is ready to come back to Saint Christopher to be with his family. Dru has recently come to town to escape her family, and has opened a small floral shop. Blah blah blah, they fall in love, they struggle with things, old troubles come back to haunt them, happily ever after.  Nice conclusion to the saga, the brothers (the first three) haven't changed at all but it's nice to see them all grown up and settled with families. The relationship between the brothers is still the focal point, more than with the couples. It's a very feel good conclusion and if you read the first three and bailed on this one (as I did) you can go ahead and pick it up.  It's probably not gonna knock your socks off, but it'll fill a couple of evenings nicely and you can feel good about finishing out the series.

  2. Large print books are my friend! At first guilty checking them out from the library because I thought I should save them for people who are older than me or have worse eyes. Finally, I came to my senses. I'm 43 and my eyes tire quickly -- I think those large print books are for me!

    You said that a romance is easier for you to review right now. Even though I've been reading a lot of romances, I don't think my reviews of them are very interesting. I struggle to find something to say when we all know it is pretty much boy-meets-girl and HEA.

  3. Hmmm Might have to read these just because I need something light and entertaining.

    Hope you aren't too terribly miserable.
