Kiera makes the journey and finds employment at an Irish pub owned by her family. Life starts to improve but she finds herself at odds with the chef who is named Bryon. After a few weeks she starts to feel more secure and rents her own a ...more
This time around we catchup with Moira and Luke O’Brien and their baby girl, Kate. Of course, with Nell and many of the familiar characters and places we love.
Moira is concerned about her mom, Kiera. Her husband Peter’s unexpected death was shocking after her second ...more

The book series is about a town in Maryland that was built by the O’Brien patriarch, Mick. Mick’s main goal in life is to have his 5 children married and in love with the person he picks out of them. Once that is accomp ...more
Communication skills varied widely between the average man and woman, he’d discovered. For him and Moira, it was as if they spoke entirely different languages and, quite possibly in her case, from some universe not yet discovered.
If we were all punished for our careless failure to realize how important some things are in our life until too late, we’d all be alone and miserable… It’s why we’re given second chances.
It is rare for me to read a book so squeaky clean that I ...more
Lilac Lane is the first book in this series that I have read. While I think it can ultimately be read as a stand alone, a new reader would benefit from reading at least Moira and Luke's story before this one. It think it might give more context for Keira's situation.
I was looking forward to a good romance, but in the end it was just OK for me. The book kind of dragged and I just wasn't invested in Keira and Bryan's relationship. For me, it just lacked heat. What I did find enjoyable were the se ...more
Strength and determination. Stubborn pride and genuine emotions. And love, lots of love, is what the characters of Lilac Lane brought to the table in this beautiful fourteenth installment in Sherryl Woods’ beloved Chesapeake Shores series.
First of all I have to say that I still get a kick out of the boisterous, caring O’Brien family, even this many books into the series. Sherryl Woods didn’t disappoint with Lilac Lane, letting us catch up with the cast a ...more
I found myself more interested in seeing Keira soften, to see her see her life in a different life, to build stronger relationships with her father and daughter.
Bryan's drama was crazy and I expec ...more
I sensed that mixed feelings growing while reading the first part of the story. And then I got angry that all was taking so long and most of all about all this people meddling. WHY ? Can’t people mind their own businesses ? This si so rude and belittling for those they want to meddle the life in. Such a waste of my precious reading time.
It all works out in the end and romance does win over.
Before beginning the actual review I need to be utterly honest with you, I was incapable of finishing this book. This was difficult for me since I always finish books I am obligated to review but apparently there is a first for everything. It’s not that I did not allow myself enough time or forgot about reading it, the truth is I was slowly being bored to death. Lilac Lane is the first book I have read by Sherryl Woods, therefore, I now know her writing is not ...more
Moira O'Brien's mother Kiera has just lost her fiance to a heart attack in Ireland. Moira convinces her mother to come to Chesapeake Shores and stay with her, her husband Luke and toddler Kate. ...more
This is a novel of second chances, which you find a lot in the small town novels by authors like Sherryl and Debbie Macomber.
Keira and Bryan are a rather unlikely couple. There romance is one that isn't real ...more

I have never read this author's books before nor have I seen the TV series, but Chesapeake Shores and Lilac Lane are places I would love to visit. The ocean breezes and the ...more
Following the sudden death of her mother Keira Malone's fiancé, Moira O'Brien is worried about her mom so she comes up with a foolproof plan to lure her to the US from Ireland. She convinces her mom that her husband Luke could use her help in his pub and she could use a helping hand with their baby. Keira readily agrees to visit temporari ...more

I loved the characters right away and found myself engrossed in this story before I was even finished with the first chapter. Keira is the kind of character that will make you nod your head in agreement as you relate to what she's going through. I loved learning more about her and her family.
One of the things th ...more
Chesapeake Shores sounds like an absolutely magical little town, at least if you don’t mind a whole town full of nosy and interfering neighbors. Not that the collective O’Brien clan doesn’t mean terribly well, and not that they don’t seem to generally do well in their meddling, but Keira Malone is used to being the boss of her own life, thankyouverymuch.
Which doesn’t mean that her life doesn’t get a much needed makeover when she arrives from Dublin to visit ...more
"The friends are the only things I've brought with me through the years that really matter," she says. "I could probably live without one more chintz teacup, another tin-litho sa ...more
