Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Woods's 10th Chesapeake Shores contemporary (after The Summer Garden) has few surprises. Renowned songwriter Jenny Collins is having difficulties coming to terms with her mom's happy marriage to an O'Brien. Nonetheless, a bad tabloid-splashed breakup with her cheating pop star boyfriend, Caleb Green, has Jenny retreating to her beachside hometown for Christmas. Caleb knows that performing Jenny's latest tune could help him make a comeback, but he'll have follow Jenny to Chesapeake Shores to get her permission. As Caleb is drawn into the sphere of the O'Brien family through participation in a local Christmas show, he predictably helps Jenny begin to feel at home there again. This Christmas tale is set against a huge warm Irish-American family cast with an ending that turns out exactly the way it was supposed to. (Oct.)


"Sherryl Woods writes emotionally satisfying novels about family, friendship and home. Truly feel-great reads!"

-#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

"Woods...is noted for appealing character-driven stories that are often infused with the flavor and fragrance of the South."

-Library Journal

"Woods always thrills with her wonderful characters, witty dialogue and warm and loving family interactions and this O'Brien family saga is no exception."

-RT Book Reviews on An O'Brien Family Christmas

"Infused with the warmth and magic of the season, Woods's fourth addition to her popular small-town series once again unites the unruly, outspoken, endearing O'Brien clan in a touching, triumphant tale of forgiveness and love reclaimed."

-Library Journal on A Chesapeake Shores Christmas

Well written great story.
Received the book one afternoon, sat down to start reading it and didn't put it down until I was done .... 3 hours later!
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to her next book which she plots at the end of this one.

Well, it's that wonderful time of year when authors we know and love give us their stories of love and romance, all wrapped up in a Christmas bow!
A Seaside Christmas by Sherryl Woods was the one I chose to read first because I can usually count on this author to give us a holiday romance to remember.

Jenny Collins has a lot going on in her life. She is a songwriter with a very successful career in Nashville, her mother has remarried and Jenny has a little brother she barely knows and the love of her life, Caleb Green was caught out with another woman and then went into rehab. For the last year, Jenny has been trying to heal her broken heart and convince herself that it's way past time she return home to Chesapeake Shores and make peace with her mother's new life by mending fences with her step-father and getting to know her little brother. So she packs her bags to come home for the holiday and agrees to help her best friend Bree with the Christmas production she is working on. Just as Jenny starts to relax, who should show up at the theater but Caleb, and he's on a mission to win Jenny back.

Caleb knows all the mistakes he's made and the biggest one by far was losing Jenny. But he's right when he figures she won't want anything to do with him. He also knows that he is going to have to convince Jenny's very large, very protective family of O'Briens that he's sorry he broke Jenny's heart and that all he wants is a second chance to prove how much he really loves her. After his first day in town, he quickly realizes that this is not going to be easy and he definitely has his work cut out for him.

n this installment of the series, Jenny Collins returns to Chesepeake Shores for the holiday season to help a family member with her annual Christmas play. She is also running away from Nashville, where she is a celebrated songwriter, trying to escape from the publicity caused by her very public breakup with Country superstar Caleb Green.

For me, a romance book has to have something other than just the romance to entice me. In the case of this book, there were several things that fit that bill. First of all, the characters in Sherryl Woods O'Brian series, if this book is any indication, encompass just he right mix of compassion, family loyalty, and pragmatism, yet they aren't at all one dimensional. Also, as a Country music fan, the country music backdrop was definitely a plus. I found myself through out the book associating both Jenny and Caleb with my favorite Country stars. Last, I loved the whole focus on the Christmas musical. I am a sucker for musicals AND Christmas musicals in particular. The fact that the author referenced all my favorite Christmas movies was not lost on me. By the time the book was finished, I not only wanted to go to Broadway and see the play, but I wanted to dig out all of my faves, White Christmas, It's a Wonderful Life, etc. and watch one after the other.

After reading this book, I have decided that I need to go back and read the other books in the series. I really want to get to know all of the O'Brians better. If the book can do that to me, I am sure it will do the same for other readers. That, in my mind, makes it a huge success.

Many thanks for Harlequin MIRA for making this title available to me in exchange for my review.

A Seaside Christmas by Sherryl Woods
This family saga is about Jenny Collins=her mom went and married the elder O'Brien and they had a son. She just didn't fit in but her aunt Bree talked her into coming back after years of trying other things: college and songwriting in Nashville. She had broken up a year ago with Caleb Green.
This book also follows Caleb and his life in Nashville, listening to others sing Jennie's songs. He wants to buy that song and will go to Chesapeake Shores and talk to her-something he hadn't done when they broke up.
In town everybody in the family is trying to get Jenny on board to attend the welcome home party and to make amends with her mother... She's also working with Bree on the Christmas play songs. Caleb hits town to apologize to Jenny...
Dillon, another local guy she used to play music with is divorced and wants to date her. Super surprise what her mom and step-dad give her when she's back in town, it's so perfect.
To help Bree and her new production company they agree to work together so she'll have a really good season.
Love catching up with all the families and especially during the holiday season.
Caleb's idea to decorate her yard with decorations-he gets the go ahead by Bree who in turn sends all the males to the house to help complete the job. They hope she appreciates and likes it especially the special piece he found.
He wins the males over with the lure of a benefit concert for their land and preservation ideas...
Jenny listens to how he's changed and she's seen it for herself but she has some doubts he will go back to his bad ole self ... and he does have the part where he kisses the older female in the play...til she finds out another reason he came to town...
I received this book from Net Galley via Harlequin MIRA in exchange for my honest review.
