From New York Times best-selling author Mariah Stewart comes a new chapter in her celebrated Chesapeake Diaries series, featuring her signature "rich characterization, charming setting, and a romance you'll never forget" (Robyn Carr, New York Times best-selling author).
Architect Cassidy Logan has sworn off good-looking adventurers. Newly divorced, she's focused on building ecologically friendly, historically accurate homes on the Chesapeake Bay for her father's construction company. Traveling to Cannonball Island - where there has been no new construction in nearly 100 years - Cass is sensitive to the heritage of the island and has come up with plans so perfect she's determined to buy a home for herself. Even the fact that Owen Parker - a local whom she dismisses as a lightweight and a player - seems to be everywhere isn't enough to deter her from building her dream house.
Owen Parker is and always has been sinfully handsome and wickedly clever, a magnet for mischief as well as girls. He's a rolling stone, going and doing whatever appeals to him, from flying a mail plane in Alaska to working on a cattle ranch in Australia and a shrimp boat in Louisiana and surfing and diving in Costa Rica. When an old friend offers him a job salvaging a sunken ship on the Chesapeake Bay, Owen gladly accepts. Something's been telling him it's time to head home to Cannonball Island, and a job is as good an excuse as any. And he's totally smitten by the pretty architect on the scene, but it seems he's finally met a woman who's immune to his charms. Sooner or later, Owen will have to face the reason why he always runs, because this time, leaving just might be harder than staying.

Change of narrator has ruined the series.
The voice of the narrator is not enjoyable to listen to. I couldn't even finish the book. To be fair, maybe if you started with this book, it might be okay; however, when you have the voices of the characters over 10 books established, switching just makes seem as though it isn't part of the series. Very disappointed.
I have several new ones in my library, so don't know. I drive about 2 1/2 a day, so I listen quite a bit.
Her voice is too on the edge of shrill for my taste.
I don't know, I could listen more than a couple of chapters.
