Overview

A lot can happen in sixteen years, but falling out of love isn't one of them. Pride has always kept a tight rein on Libba Delacourt. The pride that drove her away from Russ Hennessey and into the arms of a traveling actor is the same pride that kept her far away from her home and family in Maryland. It's not until she receives word her mother is ill that Libba finally swallows that pride, quits her job as a genetic biologist, packs up her sixteen-year-old daughter, Chloe, and heads back east. The moment she takes her first breath of the humid salty air of the Chesapeake Bay, Libba knows she is home for good. As it turns out, Libba is not the only person to return home that long, hot summer. Russ Hennessey has made his way back as well with plans to resurrect his family's fishing business - plans that collapse when an unseen menace sabotages his ambitions. Together, Libba and Russ discover some awful truths about life in their small town - truths that hit closer to home than they ever imagined.

Editorial Reviews

The Road to Romance - Ansley Velarde
"Baker has written about a family, the Delacourtes, which comes to life between the pages and make the reader fall in love with them. I loved reading about their pasts, their indiscretions, and their presents... I fell in love with this small-town and the people that lived there. The characters are in depth and multi layered. The plot thickens with every page"
Harriet Klausner
CHESAPEAKE TIDE is an exciting romantic suspense that is at its best when the theme is a character study. Libba Jane, her parents, her daughter and the man she loves struggle with forming endearing lasting relationships in spite of love flowing between everyone as pride hampers communication. ...a terrific family drama starring individuals trying, not easily, to simply talk about their feelings for one another.

    Excellent storytelling

    Almost two decades have passed but Elizabeth Delacourte realizes that marrying Eric was a mistake and she ended their relationship. Pride has kept her in Southern California rather than returning to her family in Marycreek, Maryland as she only heard from her daddy perhaps a dozen times since she left home and never from her momma because they thought Eric was not good enough for her. Her daddy informs Libba Jane that her beloved mother suffered a stroke and needs her to come home. Daddy shakes her further when he apologizes for driving her away. Libba Jane accompanied by her recalcitrant sixteen year old daughter Chloe comes home................................... Russ Hennessy also comes home to take over the family fishing business. He never forgot the starfish he let get away when his beloved Libba Jane left with the actor for the coast. Now he has a second chance, but the obstacles are great as Libba Jane is reluctant to get into any relationship while mending the fences with her family and struggling with a daughter who wants to go ¿home¿ to California. Besides which he has his own problems as someone is poisoning the waters............................. CHESAPEAKE TIDE is an exciting romantic suspense that is at its best when the theme is a character study. Libba Jane, her parents, her daughter and the man she loves struggle with forming endearing lasting relationships in spite of love flowing between everyone as pride hampers communication. Though the environmental mess adds suspense, this subplot also takes time away from a terrific family drama starring individuals trying, not easily, to simply talk about their feelings for one another.................................
