About this ebook

New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart returns to her beloved Chesapeake Diaries series with a charming beachside romance that is “everything you love about small-town romance” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Barbara Freethy).

Always believing she was an ugly duckling, Chrissy Jenkins thought she had finally turned into a swan when her real-life Prince Charming swept her off her feet. But as his true character began to crack his perfect facade, Chrissy realized that not only was she better off without him, but that she was the only one who had the power to transform her life.

Returning to her ancestral home on Cannonball Island for a family wedding, Chrissy is reintroduced to a legacy she’d all but forgotten. In choosing to stay on the island, she reboots her life, successfully reinventing herself as a chef at Blossoms, an up-and-coming restaurant in St. Dennis. But despite her newfound self-confidence, she still doesn’t trust her taste in men. So when she meets Jared Chandler, a handsome ship salvager staying at the inn while he conducts a nearby recovery operation, Chrissy’s certain she can keep him as a friend—even though he’s everything any woman would want in a man. As fellow newcomers, together they discover the charm of the historic bayside town and explore the idyllic island.

But when Chrissy agrees to be Jared’s date for his father’s wedding, they embark on a weekend that will find them each seeing the other in a completely different light, one that will change their lives foreve

3 Stars Review by Kris Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Mariah Stewart's Dune Drive takes on the tough subject of abuse. Chrissy Jenkins went through some very tough times, with being in an abusive relationship for five years too many. She had low self-esteem because of it as well. While I was happy the author touched base on this topic, I felt there could have been so much more to it. I would like to state this was a very hard read for me. I read the synopsis and was intrigued but later found myself bored with it. I did enjoy Chrissy’s bounce back into finding herself. Mariah Stewart has a lot of talent in the writing words department and if I was my mother’s or even grandmother’s age, I would have probably enjoyed the book a little bit more. It was just too perfect despite hitting a topic like abuse. I truly wanted to enjoy this book but I just could not connect. Well Written, but not for everyone.
