Overview

Bailey Jones has always been a misfit in a town that sets a lot of store on family lineage, old money and homes that overlook the Chesapeake. As he makes plans to finally quit Marshycreek two pieces of new arrive. A body is discovered (which many of the town's residents wish had stayed hidden). The second piece of news sends a shiver down Bailey's back -- a not unpleasant experience -- because it is about his ex-love reappearing in town. As the gossip mill kicks into overdrive, multiple tensions rise in the community. Clearly it will be a long, hot summer of multiple passions, too. "Chesapeake Summer" may be thoroughly enjoyed on its own bountiful merits, but it can also be read as the sultry sequel to "Chesapeake Tide", that marvelous novel which first took place in Marshyhope Creek.

Editorial Reviews

Catherine Witmer
A sequel to Chesapeake Tide, this story features some of the same characters and also deals with the seamier side of small-town life... There's a lot going on, plot-wise, and it's generally interesting, if not completely absorbing... Baker manages some surprises along the way.

Baker's Chesapeake Summer is touted as a romance; yet, there is an intriguing mystery, the resolution of which has an impact on the relationship of the primary characters. A well-crafted story set in a very real place, populated by people I would like to know or have known.

When his mom died, he inherited her property in Marshy Hope Creek. Bailey Jones plans are simple when he returns home get out ASAP. He will sell the property to a developer for a fortune and hook up with his friend Chloe Richards who has just come home too.------------- The townsfolk, who never liked bad boy Bailey, are irate when he announces his plan to sell. However, his scheme is placed on halt when workers digging on the land uncover the remains of a human. Bailey knows whoever interred the victim, most likely killed the prey but remains ignorant to the fact that the predator watches very carefully the inquiry and is prepared to cause more deaths to keep the deadly secret concealed.-------------- CHESAPEAKE SUMMER, the sequel to the exciting romantic suspense CHESAPEAKE TIDE, is an entertaining second chance at love mystery. Bailey is terrific as Chloe and some others prove his uncaring bad boy persona is all facade and image. Although the killer is obvious, readers will enjoy the return to the Chesapeake Bay area as more than the culprit fears what law enforcement will uncover as the icons have skeletons in their closets that could scandalize their family name and nothing is as sacred as their untainted blue blooded pedigree.----------- Harriet Klausner
