Book Club Thursday: A favorite Family
This is one of the reasons I love series, because let's face it, family comes in many different ways. Some of them by blood while other's are by choice. When we picked the theme, favorite families, I couldn't believe how many I wanted to talk about. I finally narrowed it down to one family. Now these brothers aren't blood brothers, they are a family by choice. One of my favorite kind. My pick is the family from Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay Series. These guys put family first, before all other. You've got to love them.
A champion boat racer, Cameron Quinn traveled the world spending his winnings on champagne and women. But when his dying father calls him home to care for Seth, a troubled young boy not unlike Cameron once was, his life changes overnight.
Of the three Quinn brothers, it was Ethan who shared his father’s passion for the Maryland shore. And now with his father gone, Ethan is determined to make the family boatbuilding business a success. But amidst his acheivements lie the most important challenges of his life.
Phillip Quinn had done everything to make his life seem perfect. With his career on the fast track and a condo overlooking Inner Harbor, his life on the street was firmly in the past. But one look at Seth and he’s reminded of the boy he once was, and soon his promise to his father to care for Seth becomes more than just obligation.
After a harrowing boyhood with a drug-addicted mother, Seth was 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 his beloved family—and the city girl who can’t resist him.
I loved all four books but would have to say that Phillip from Inner Harbor was my favorite. There was just something about him that drew me. I think you'll love this series. Each book on its own stands alone, but they are much better if read in order. Make sure to stop by my fellow bloggers and see what family they picked. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Happy reading!
