Image of Home Again (The Chesapeake Diaries)

The second novel in Stewart’s delightfully warm and touching Chesapeake Diaries series focuses on the possibility of rediscovering first love. This heroine’s situation could have been ripped from today’s headlines, as she tries to regain
control of her life. The town and townspeople of St. Dennis, Md., come vividly to life under Stewart’s skillful hands. The pace is gentle, but the emotions are complex in this touching charmer.

Actress Dallas MacGregor’s life has become a PR disaster, as her soon-to-be ex-husband’s sexual exploits are featured on a viral video. When the fallout affects their 6-year-old son Cody, Dallas decides to temporarily escape to the safe harbor of St. Dennis. Having spent many summers in St. Dennis, Dallas has fond memories. It is also where she met her childhood best friend and first love, Grant Wyler. Upon arrival, Dallas learns that Grant too has recently returned to St. Dennis. In life people rarely get second chances; is the time now right for these two? (BALLANTINE, Aug., 464 pp., $7.99)
