This is one of my favorites since the original siblings books of the children of Mick O'Brien in the series. I liked the strength of character especially seeing Carrie all grown up from a very selfish and flighty daughter we had brief glimpses of in the earlier books. If you haven't read the series you'll still enjoy the book as the author always weaves in some background for a newbie. I liked the way Carrie found her way with intelligence and just the right amount of angst and the same with Sam in his new found circumstance. A very enjoyable read.

I loved this latest addition to the Chesapeake Shores series, as one of the two little girls from the very first book has grown up and finds her own true love. Carrie grew up in Chesapeake Shores, but moved away in search of her own place in the world. After finding out that her boss and the man she thought she loved wasn't what she thought, she has come back home. She's been wallowing in her unhappiness a little bit, filling her time by taking care of the various children in the family. She hasn't decided yet what she is going to do, and is getting tired of the hassle from members of her family, especially her grandfather Mick. Carrie is definitely going through a rough time, trying to figure out what she wants to do. She knows she wants it to be there, as she has missed her home and family more than she expected. A comment from her cousin Luke gives her food for thought, but she's distracted by the arrival of a handsome but harried looking man. Sam Winslow is new to Chesapeake Shores, the web tech for the town newspaper. He'd barely arrived in town when he his sister and brother-in-law were killed in an accident, leaving him as guardian of his six year old nephew Bobby. As a formerly foot loose and fancy free bachelor, Sam is feeling overwhelmed by the thought of being an instant father. Dashing in to the pub to grab some take out, leaving Bobby snoozing in the car (though he keeps a close eye on the car while doing it), Sam runs afoul of Carrie. Their initial meeting has sparks flying, with each of them doing some judging of the other. Things get better once they both calm down. I loved both Carrie and Sam. Carrie has finally reached the point where she is ready to move on with her life. Luke's suggestion finds fertile ground as she realizes that taking care of children is something that she both enjoys and can get passionate about. She knows her family well and realizes that she will have to make sure she has all her ducks in a row before she tells them her plans. I was really impressed with the way she went about her research. It was also very helpful for her that she had Sam to talk to. I felt bad for her when she didn't get the immediate support from her family that she wanted. I thought Sam was terrific. Even though he had been a carefree bachelor, he didn't hesitate to step up when it came time to take care of Bobby. His fears were real and realistic, as he didn't know anything about kids or what they need. He is used to doing things on his own, so asking for help isn't easy. Even though he makes a few mistakes along the way, he is determined that he and Bobby will be the "team" that they need to get through it. There were some really sweet moments between the two of them as Sam went from nervous uncle to (semi) confident dad.

Sherryl Woods is good at writing stories that are thought provoking. She brings so much emotion to her novels that whether you are 20- 100 years old her stories draw you in. Her writing is so realistic it feels like you can step into any page and live the life of her characters. Whether written yesterday or twenty years ago Ms. Wood still writes beautiful relevant stories that combine everyday life with romance, grief, redemption and lessons that still apply in these changing times. Willow Brook Road is a look at life through the eyes of a woman seeking to stand on her own and a man trying to work through the heartbreak of loss and responsibility. I have loved Sheryl Woods stories for many years and continue to do so.

Willow Brook Road is the new book by Sherry Woods, in the Chesapeake Shores Novel. Set in Chesapeake Shores, Carrie Winters is the granddaughter of the founding father Mike O'Brien. Carrie arrives in town after a bad breakup with a fashion icon in Paris, trying to get her life back on track. Lost and not really knowing what she wants to do with her life now, she finds comfort in babysitting for her twin sisters baby. Carrie meets a new residence to town Sam Winslow, who seems to have problems of his own. His sister and brother-in-law have recently died and left him the guardian to his nephew Bobby. Carrie instantly offers to help babysit Bobby, if that will help Sam in anyway. Sam finds it difficult to except any assist, not wanting to take advantage of Carrie. Sam worries that having Bobby depend to much on Carrie will not be a good thing in the long run. As Carrie still uncertain about her future finds a daycare in the next town over hoping to volunteer. She soon becomes very close with the owner, learning the day to day operation of the business. Finding out that the local daycare in Chesapeake Shores, is overcrowded and in dire need of another child care for the children, Carrie finally decides that she will open one to help the people of her community. While Carrie begins to follow her dreams, she continues to help Sam with Bobby. Will she find the end happiness to her life with Sam & Bobby, the family she has desired for her whole life? Author Sherry Woods does a remarkable job bringing to the life the struggles and ambition of Carrie Winters. Causing you to delight in her pleasures through the book. Another heartwarming book, that I recommend to any Sherry Woods fan.

A heartfelt story about life in a large family, with joys and sorrows, finding your place in life, and daring to take the steps to happiness, whatever it may take. The large, extended family of O'Brien loves to get involved in each other's lives, gossip and meddle as much as possible, but mostly with a loving, caring heart, with the best intentions towards each other. Carrie and Sam obviously have a spark, the connection is real, the attraction strong. They take the relationship forward very slowly and cautiously, with the turmoil in their lives enough of a challenge right now. The tone of the story is sweet, there's no love scenes in the tale, nor language either, that would be bothersome. For some reason I did have difficulty connecting with Carrie, I loved her life goals, admired her spunk to go forward, but there was something that made it hard for me to get her, to understand where she was coming from, all the reasons not getting involved with Sam. Sam, him I adored, he is likable, charming, caring, and sincere. I loved how his relationship with Bobby was developing, how they formed a team, the protective feelings he had towards him. His honesty with the overwhelming, huge responsibility with Bobby was touching. Also, how easily Carrie, Sam, and Bobby made a unit, a family, was admirable. I enjoyed most of the secondary characters as well. There are a lot of them, and keeping them all in their place is a task. Even though this book can easily be read as a stand alone novel, it might make the task with the relatives easier, if you have read some of the previous stories. I understand and sympathies with Susie's pain and loss. I felt for her, and wished her only good. I think she was painted to be a bit 'mean girl' in her sorrow, and that got old really fast for me. I'm happy how it all ended with her, I just wish it wouldn't have gotten so ugly at one point. A lovely, well written, look at the O'Brien family on the Chesapeake Shores, their life with ups and downs, the daily struggles, and finding their life goals ~ Four Spoons
