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.................................
