Book Club Thursday: Clearing Off the Bookshelves

Welcome back to Book Club Thursday!

Today we are doing our...

Driftwood Point
The Chesapeake Diaries #10
Mariah Stewart
Pocket Books

Up-and-coming artist Lisbeth Parker finally has a chance to show the folks back home what it means to leave Cannonball Island and make something of yourself. As a native whose stubborn father forbade her from befriending townies, Lis always felt like an outsider in St. Dennis. While her work is on display in the local art gallery, she records her centenarian great-grandmother’s stories of the island’s rich history and falls in love with its unspoiled beauty.

Lis was Alec Jansen’s secret dream girl growing up, and now that she’s back with plans to turn her family’s ramshackle cottage into an art studio, the handsome environmental engineer sees a second chance to win her heart. But when he’s hired by a builder who wants to develop the island, Alec is caught between the change he knows is coming and Lis’s desire to preserve the island and its way of life. Can Alex convince Lis that in the right hands change can be good, or will she see only betrayal?


I can't believe that we are at book 10 of the Chesapeake series. I've been hooked since book one! I love how we see the people through both reading the story and Grace's written words. 

In Driftwood Point we move over to Cannonball Island which is right next to St. Dennis. This books adds another layer to the series. A really good layer. Plus Ruby rocks. 

Right away you realize that Lisbeth both loves and hates Cannonball Island. Memories are a funny thing. We see things differently when we grow up. We can also be more responsible for ourselves, not like when we are kids and can only do what are parents tell us to do. 

I know you want to know what that statement is about but you'll have to read the book to know. 

Right away you wonder about Alec's actions. He seems so nice, you have to wonder if he was for real. I'm here to say, yes he is! He's really a great guy. 

These two a perfect together and should have been together all along. Their story is wonderful and I was so glad to have read it. 

I would only have to say that the only thing that bugs me about the series is the fact that a few of my favorite characters are getting up there in life and I worry each time I read a book that they will be gone. Crazy, I know! 

If you've read Driftwood Point or any other book by Mariah Stewart I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! 💓
