The Summer Garden by Sherryl Woods

Date Read: February 2012

Genre: Contemporary, Romance

Falling for "Maddening Moira" O'Malley was the unexpected highlight of Luke O'Brien's Dublin holiday. So when she pays a surprise visit to Chesapeake Shores, Luke is thrilled…at first. A fling with this wild Irish rose is one thing, but forever? Maybe someday, but not when he's totally focused on establishing a business that will prove his mettle to his overachieving family.

Given Luke's reaction, Moira has some soul-searching of her own to do. Scarred by her father's abandonment, she wonders if Luke, with his playboy past, is truly the family man she longs for. Adding to her dilemma, she's offered an amazing chance at a dream career of her own.

Deep down, though, Moira knows home is the real prize, and that love can be every bit as enchanted as a summer garden

First Thought when I Finished: People who have read this series are going to love The Summer Garden by Sherryl Woods. For those of us just jumping on the band wagon, it was pretty darn good too!

It is a little strange reading the last book in the series first. That is not my normal way of doing things but after reading the synopsis, I couldn’t pass this book up! I really loved the whole O’Brien family and their very meddling ways. Grandma was my favorite and I’m thrilled she had her own story weaved in with Luke and Moira’s. This was such a sweet romantic read that you couldn’t help but be carried away for a few hours and then have a smile on your face for the rest of the day!

Final Thought: I am going to go back and catch up with the rest of the O’Brien’s! 🙂

    OM! You are rocking the book reading. I also love that you read out of order. YAY! Not just me. 😀

  2. Missie, The Unread R

    YES! I started 150lbs last night. I'm looking forward to discovering those A-Ha moments! :)I have serious OCD when it comes to series books. I have to read them in order. But sometimes it works out fine, eh.

    I'm so excited for 150 pounds. I was just telling Missie last night that I love books about weight and I can't wait to get my hands on it. 😉 I love feeling a multitude of emotions in a book. If an author can make me laugh and cry, then they have done their job. So excited!

    Love the sound of 150 pounds! Love laughing and crying with characters and being able to really identify with them. If you say you'd read it again, I definitely need to pick it up:)

    I really need to read a Wood's book. I don't think I've heard a bad thing. 150 Pounds sound like it is up my alley. Sadly. Forever up my alley. Fat, why do you love my butt so?
