Fiction. Literature. Romance. HTML:The final novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts' stunning Chesapeake Bay Saga, where the Quinn brothers must return to their family home on the Maryland shore, to honor their father's last request...

It??s been a long journey. After a harrowing boyhood with his drug-addicted mother, Seth had been taken in by the Quinn family, growing up with three older brothers who??d watched over him with love.
 
Now a grown man returning from Europe as a successful painter, Seth is settling down on Maryland??s Eastern Shore, surrounded once again by Cam, Ethan, and Phil, their wives and children, and all the blessed chaos of the extended Quinn clan. Finally, he??s back in the little blue-and-white house where there??s always a boat at the dock, a rocker on the porch, and a dog in the yard.
 
Still, a lot has changed in St. Christopher??s since he??s been gone??and the most intriguing change of all is the presence of Dru Whitcomb Banks. A city girl who has opened a florist shop in this seaside town, she craves independence and the challenge of establishing herself without the influence of her wealthy connections. In Seth, she sees another kind of challenge??a challenge that she can??t resist.

La vida de los pequeños Cameron, Ethan y Phillip parecía abocada al desastre. Aunque no se conocían entre sí, los tres compartían un pasado de abusos y dificultades que dejaron atrás cuando fueron adoptados por Raymond Quinn. Ahora han crecido y juntos conforman una sólida familia que se desmorona el día en que reciben la noticia de que su padre ha sufrido un terrible accidente. Reunidos en torno a su lecho de muerte los tres le hacen una última promesa al hombre al que deben todo: cuidar de Seth, el niño que estaba a punto de adoptar...
Han pasado los años y el joven Seth se ha convertido en un afamado pintor que cambió los paisajes marinos de Chesapeake por las cosmopolitas capitales de Europa. Cinco años después de su partida regresa a Saint Chris para reencontrarse con su familia. Instalado en una casita con porche y enamorado de una joven llamada Druscilla, Seth siente que finalmente ha llegado el momento de asentarse. Cuando su madre biológica se interponga de nuevo en su camino, Seth verá peligrar no solo su futuro sino el de la familia que cambió su destino.

This is going to be short, this book was not needed at all. Roberts jumps 18 years in time and we have Seth Quinn returning to St. Christopher, now a world celebrated painter (I maybe laughed at that) who is hiding something from his family. Seth instantly becomes intrigued by a local florist and he takes after Cameron with the whole, so we are just going to be in a relationship cause that is what I want. What sends Seth back to St. Christopher was beyond dumb. And his relationship with florist Drusilla lacks any heat at all. The only saving grace to this book is that you get to see how the relationships we got to see in the first three books have turned out. I was disappointed this book mostly showcases Seth, Drusilla, Anna, and Seth. I wanted more scenes with Ethan and Grace. I was okay with barely any scenes with Phillip and Sybill.

"Chesapeake Blue" has Seth Quinn returning to his hometown after I think 5 years or so away in Europe. He plans on staying and working at his family's boat business, while also painting. Something is troubling him though and he doesn't know what to do. He fall in lust at first sight when he comes across florist Drusilla Whitcomb Banks. Dru is wary of becoming involved with Seth or anyone after her last relationship. Things don't improve when she starts showing signs of jealousy because of Seth's relationship with his cousin Aubrey. And there was a whole scene about that and I maybe screamed into a pillow.

I think the problem with this book is now that Seth is grown, there was no need to tell this story. The first three books had a stronger tie, you had three brothers trying to do right by their father. This book just info dumps about the couples we have read about and we don't really get a sense of anyone in this one beyond Aubrey, Cameron, and Anna, and their kids.

The writing was not good in this. There was no real tension until I think 50 percent or so into the book when you find out why Seth returned home. And then I got annoyed because the reason was a dumb one and Seth's justification for being this stupid didn't ring true at all. The flow was awful.

The ending was just blah. ( )
