Overview

After taking stock of her life, Sophie Enright has decided it’s time for a break. Between a law career that’s become criminally dull and a two-timing boyfriend she’s done with once and for all, Sophie desperately needs some time to think and some space to breathe. The perfect place to do both is easygoing St. Dennis, Maryland, where Sophie can visit with her brother while she figures out her options. Once in St. Dennis, she discovers a shuttered restaurant and makes a bold move that is also a leap of faith. Sophie buys the fixer-upper in order to finally pursue her dream career.
 
But Sophie’s labor of love becomes a bone of contention for her new neighbor Jason Bowers. The local landscaper has big plans for growing his business—until Sophie scoops up the property he’s got his eye on. And no amount of buyout offers or badgering from him will get her to budge. It’s hardly the start of a beautiful friendship. But when they’re paired up to work on a community project, they agree to put their differences aside, and sparks begin to fly. Then Sophie’s cheating ex suddenly shows up, looking for a second chance—and threatening to make Jason a third wheel just when his hotheaded feelings about Sophie were turning decidedly warmhearted. All Sophie wants is a new life and a true love. But what are the odds of having both?

    A Delightful Romantic Read! At The River¿s Edge is the first boo

    A Delightful Romantic Read!
    At The River’s Edge is the first book I have read by this author. I found it to be a fun read with delightful and not so delightful characters. I thought it had a good story line.
    Have you ever had circumstances in your life that blind sighted you and knocked you for a loop? This story has some of those life circumstances that I am sure most readers can relate to.
    Sophie Enright is a strong character and I loved that about her. She is a real go-getter and when she wants something she makes it happen. She decides to start over in St. Dennis, Maryland after she catches her boyfriend cheating on her.
    Jason Bowers too is a strong character in this book. He ends up in St. Dennis after the death of his brother. He didn’t plan to stay in St. Dennis but as we know life has a way of changing our plans.
    Sophie plans to build her dream business. Jason plans to expand his growing business. Will their dreams clash with each other?
    I really wanted to move to St. Dennis by the time I finished this book. The description of the town and the people were very well done by this author.
    If you are a fan of Mariah Stewart, I urge you to pick up a copy of “At The River’s Edge” today. I highly recommend it.
    I won this book on LibraryThing. I wish to thank Ballantine Books for sending me a copy to read and review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.

    Great Series

    I have read all seven books in the series and loved all of them! Mariah Stewart consistently writes great story lines re separation, loss of a loved one, single parenthood, changing jobs. I am biting my nails or staying up late at night to see how the story is going to turn out!

    I already checked to see when book #8 is coming out! Not too long await, this Spring! Yeah!

    Mariah Stewart has once again proven why is is on my auto buy li

    Mariah Stewart has once again proven why is is on my auto buy list and why she is one of my favorite authors.  I couldn't get enough of this book and read it in a few hours.  This book is like coming home for me.  Yes, I know the people and the city are not real but that doesn't stop me from wishing it was. You get to see characters that you have known from the first book in the series.  Even though this book is not out yet, I can't wait for the next book in the Chesapeake Diaries.




    When Sophie Enright has a REALLY bad day, she takes some time off and goes to see her brother and Grandfather in St Dennis, Maryland.  There she see's how over worked her brother is in the family's law firm.  She decides to move and help him out.  The problem is that she doesn't want to be a lawyer anymore.  She wants to follow her dream and become a Chef.  Sophie runs into Jason Bower and feels the attraction to him, even after she caught her boy friend cheating on her.  Sparks fly when Jason tries to buy a piece a property next to his land only to find that Sophie has bought it from under his nose.  Will Sophie and Jason get their happily ever after?  You must read this wonderful book to find out.

    Just in time for Valentine's Day, Mariah Stewart launches her la

    Just in time for Valentine's Day, Mariah Stewart launches her latest novel in the Chesapeake Diaries series, At River's Edge! If you love romance stories set in a small seaside village, much like Debbie Macomber's Cedar Creek series, you will definitely want to grab these. This is her seventh novel in the series and like most readers who become addicted to their favorite author's series, I am thrilled that Mariah didn't stop at the standard three novels in a series. And before you ask, yes there is going to be an eighth novel which you get a sneak peek at when you get to the end of this one. You can read these as stand alones, but in order to understand who all the characters are that are referenced in these novels, you will want to start at the beginning. I have listed them in order at the conclusion of this review for your reference and buying list.

    In At River's Edge, we are introduced to Sophie Enright who is a hard working and successful prosecutor for the DA's office who literally had the world at her fingertips. Great job, Chris, a man who she had fallen in love with, and was in the beginning stages of taking that next step when she found him with someone else in the backseat of his car in the parking ground of the law firm they both work at. Now thrown for a tailspin and having to face him and her every day at the office, she is looking for a change of pace. Perhaps even a change in career and place to live, so she takes some time off of work and heads to visit her brother, Jessie who lives in St. Dennis to spend some time getting a different perspective on what to do next and to spend time with him before his wedding to Brooke.

    Jesse tries to convince Sophie to join the family law firm Enright and Enright who have been practicing law in St. Dennis as far back as any of them can remember. With her uncle and grandfather having retired, Jesse has more than enough cases for her to join the firm.Only she's not sure if she wants to continue in law or try something else, like running a diner, if she can find a building she can rent that is affordable, something she has always LOVED doing since she spent her summers working as a short order cook, but Jesse thinks she's crazy to try anything like that. However when an abandoned piece of property that used to be a former restaurant comes on the market, perhaps Sophie's dreams are just beginning to fall in place after all.

    I received At River's Edge by Mariah Stewart compliments of TLC Book Tours and Ballantine Books for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own. It's hard not to rush through this book because you just want redemption of some sort for Sophie after everything she has gone through with Chris, that you are turning pages as fast as you can. Yet at the same time, the story is so good you don't want it to end. Ah power struggle until the next book comes out in the Spring of 2014. There are such a host of secondary characters like the mysterious ghost of Rose, Sophie's grandmother that died twenty years ago that still frequents the house her grandfather lives in alone. Her fragrance of gardenia's is always present when she is near even though no gardenias are present in the house or in the garden, and it provides a sense of lasting romance that carries over from Sophie's grandparents and hoping that she, too can find love that transcends the passage of time like they have. A poignant love story of what all romance is about and just in time for Valentine's Day. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars. I can't wait for On Sunset Beach in the Spring! A must read for romantics at heart.

    Romance in a Charming Quaint Town

    Having read all the Chesapeake Diaries’ series books, there are many so characters, and would encourage readers to start at the beginning in order to keep up the names of the players, and how they are connected. At the River's Edge could be a standalone; however, would get confusing with the array of back characters.

    In this book, the older lady Grace of course writes a recap at the end of the book updating everyone, as she owns the newspaper and a bit of a gossip and busy body. As like small towns, everyone knows everyone’s business and always match making going on.

    There tends to be a lot of very independent and talented women who get dumped and move to St Dennis to meet their prince charming (pretty much the basis for each story).

    Sophie, an attorney catches her guy cheating with a girl in the office, and escapes to St Dennis, MD to visit her brother, Jessie who will be soon married to Brook. He has taken over their grandfather’s law practice as he and his uncle are retired. (All of these girls now own some sort of business in town).

    As she gets to know everyone in the town, she falls in love with the charming town and sets out to buy and run a quaint restaurant. In the meantime her grandfather would love for her to join the law firm with her brother.

    In addition, Jason (from another book), has moved to St Dennis to be closer to his nephew after the death of his brother (landscaping business). Sophie and Jason begin to have an attraction for one another and they both have their eye on the same piece of property for their new ventures.

    I listened to the audio version and the narrator can be a little annoying at times. Pretty predictable story; however, since I have read all the series, always nice to catch up with characters.
