"Stewart's ninth Chesapeake Diaries contemporary romance deftly uses the tools of the genre to explore issues of identity,truth, and small town kinship. Bestselling self-help author Jamie Valentine has made a fortune writing books about honesty. When her widowed mother dies, Jamie is blind sided by her parents' secret: she was adopted. Grief and the irony of discovering that her life is based on a lie send Jamie into an introspective, identity seeking tailspin, and she decides to look for her birth mother. Following clues, Jamie heads to the picturesque small town of St. Dennis, along the Chesapeake Bay. Soon she's apprehensively romancing the inn's owner, single father Dan Sinclair,and befriending his clairvoyant mother, Grace, while getting to know the lovely, well-mannered, sociable people of St. Dennis. Stewart offers a strong statement on the power of love and trust, a fitting theme for this big-hearted small town romance." (Publishers Weekly)

Daniel Sinclair was thrown into running the Inn at Sinclair's Point after the death of his father. He is very serious about his job and it is a full time job running the inn. His wife passed away in a boating accident and he is raising his two children on his own. He, his children and his mother live in the inn.
Jamie and Daniel clash as they get to know each other. He feels that she is hiding something and he feels that she is undermining his parental role as she befriends his teenage daughter. Jamie thinks Daniel is too tough on his children. As Jamie works with Daniel's mother, Grace, archiving old newspapers, he again is suspicious. Grace's family has owned the local newspaper for many years.
This is a fun visit to old friends in St. Dennis who run the shops and businesses and everyone knows everyone else. Jamie does a good job keeping her identity from everyone but what about Grace who knows everything that goes on? Does she find out about her parental background? This is one to keep you guessing as Jamie goes to the coffee shop with Grace and the ladies who grew up in St. Dennis.
She can't help wondering if one of them could be her mother.
This book is about Daniel Sinclair, who runs the Inn at Sinclair's Point, and the author Jamie Valentine. There are cameo appearances by characters from previous books because they add to the tapestry of the town but they do not take a large role in the story so this book (as others have mentioned) can stand on its own. There are several books in this series that draw heavily on the previous book, but this is not one. The one recurring character (whose diary entries always enrich the stories) is Grace Sinclair. She ran the town paper until she broke her leg and she knows everything about everyone in town and (with some help from her spirit friend) imparts little tidbits that add color to the stories - she'd be someone fun to sit down and pick her brain..
I'm glad she is continuing the series -- I would rate most of them as 5 star, but have loved them all.
