Readers will embrace Woods’ 10th installment in the Chesapeake Shores series, which focuses on love, passion and forgiveness. The desire to mend a family relationship is also highlighted, and readers will often find themselves relating to the heroine’s feelings. It’s an emotional roller-coaster ride to say the least, and as unpredictable as a riptide.

Country music songwriter Jenny Collins always wished she was part of a large family. She thought her wish came true when her mother married into the O’Brien family, but with a new baby brother and the whole gang of O’Briens by her side, she still doesn’t feel like part of the clan. After Jenny’s very public breakup with singer Caleb Green in Nashville, she returns home to help out a friend with a Christmas production. She hopes to attract a large audience with her music. Caleb is trying to get his career as a solo artist back on track, and he follows her to Maryland to ask a favor. As Jenny attempts to make peace with her new family, she must face the man who walked out on her almost two years ago. (MIRA, Oct., 288 pp., $16.95)
