    Very emotional read.

    Review by Valerie:
    I haven't read the rest of the Chesapeake series but the blurb for this one caught my eye and I decided to give it a try. I will say that, for me, when I read romance I'm looking for escape and while this book is a fantastic story, it really was too deep for what I like to read. For anyone who has dealt with the big C word personally, this story will speak to you.

    The loving family members and friends that the series is known for are definitely included in this story about Susie and Mack. Everyone's been betting for years that they will eventually get together, yet they never have. When Mack finally decides to propose to her, he loses his job. How can an unemployed man ask the woman he loves to be his wife? He can't and doesn't. So what's he supposed to do now?

    Susie's viewpoint is that Mack's a player and she can just sit around and wait for him to get serious about their relationship. What she doesn't realize, however, is that time waits for no one, including her. The games that they have been playing have to stop with so much on the line, yet neither one knows how to behave any other way.

    Over and over again, both of them keep things from each other and have their doubts about their relationship and future. I did find that Mack had more faith in their relationship then Susie did, but felt that her fears and insecurities were true to her medical situation and health issues. When her husband hires an old fling to help start his new business, things just get worse for Susie. Their family members and friends offer advice, assistance, and help in any way they can hoping both of them will be happy. But, ultimately, it's up to them to find their way.

    I laughed some, I cried some, and while it was very deep on an emotional level, I'll read more about this family in the next book when it's released.

    Quote: She shrugged. "Up to you." Being around Mack wasn't the problem. They were together all the time. Turning it into anything romance, that was the problem. Page 11

    Can You Take the Challenge?

    Synopsis:
    Susie and Mack have been friends for a longtime. Their situation is often referred to as nondating. Mack has decided that Susie is the only woman for him but how to convince her? Then he gets bad news that he was laid off by the newspaper he had been working for. Mack is so upset that he goes into hibernation avoiding his friends and Susie. He thinks if he waits to when he gets a new job then he can ask Susie to marry him. Then Susie finds out that she has some bad news, and refuses to share with Mack. Will they ever be able to coordinate their time together? Will they realize that some things can't wait?
    Thoughts
    This book struck a chord with me because of the some of the issues the main protagonist has to deal with. I have really enjoyed this series and look forward to reading more of this series.
