Dr. Sybill Griffin, sociologist and renowned author, is on a mission. When her estranged sister Gloria DeLauter calls in hysterics, claiming that her 10 year old son Seth has been abducted by the Quinn family, Sybill doesnt know what to think.

In Glorias version of events, Seth was kidnapped, but Sybill knows that Gloria has a habit of lying. She resolves to find out the truth for herself. Traveling to St. Christophers under the pretext of writing a book, Sybill wanders by the Boats by Quinn warehouse and catches the eye of Phillip Quinn.

Between working in the city during the week and commuting back to St. Chris and the boat building enterprise on the weekends, Phillip doesnt have much time for socializing. Having a very attractive, bright woman walk in the front door might improve his social life immensely.

As she watches young Seth interact with the Quinn family, Sybill feels more and more guilty about deceiving them. Seth doesnt recognize her because they havent seen each other since he was 4 years old.

When Gloria returns, Sybills deception is revealed. Now she is not only faced with the potential loss of a relationship with her nephew, but the destruction of her burgeoning love affair with Phillip.

INNER HARBOR neatly wraps up the trilogy which outlined the lives and loves of the amazing Quinn family. Filled with passion, emotion and family loyalty, this novel will surely join the other two on your keeper shelf. (Jan., 352 pp., $7.50)

Inner Harbor

Submitted by Robin in PA on February 28, 2013 - 9:52pm.

Phillip Quinn leads a busy life as a successful businessman in a PR firm in Baltimore. Every weekend he returns to his hometown to help care for the newest member of the Quinn family, Seth, and help his brothers with their new boat building enterprise. His private life has been put on hold until he meets Dr. Sybil Griffin, an anthropologist writing a book about small town life. He finds Sybil intriguing and wants to get to know her better. But Sybil has come to town for another reason. She has come to check on her nephew, Seth, to see if he is happy with the Quinns or if she should fight them to return Seth to her sister.

3rd book in Nora Roberts' Chesapeake Bay series. Excellent! This book gives us the truth about Seth's parentage and ties up some loose ends. I highly recommend this book...and the whole series. My rating: 5 Stars.
