Meridith can handle anything: guardianship of three distant siblings, a dilapidated Bed-and-Breakfast, even an ever-present handyman who’s dismantling more than her fireplace–or can she?
Driftwood Lane Final Stop in Denise Hunter’s Much-Loved NANTUCKET LOVE STORY Series
“A heart-warming romance…the perfect beach read!” — Kristin Billerbeck, best-selling author of What a Girl Wants
It’s been said that life is what happens when you are busy making other plans. That is certainly the case for Meridith Ward. There really isn’t much that she can’t handle—except for three younger siblings who she really doesn’t know. And then there’s Summer House, a bed and breakfast that, despite its sunny name, is in a great state of disrepair, necessitating the ever-present handyman, Jake, who is more frustrating than helpful. Maybe life isn’t as easy as Meredith would like to think as Denise Hunter takes readers on a last trip to beloved Nantucket, in the final book of her popular NANTUCKET LOVE STORY series, Driftwood Lane.
When Meredith’s estranged father dies, there is no one else to care for her siblings, and even though she doesn’t really know them, she must head to Nantucket to fulfill her family obligation…supposedly only until their uncle retuns from his trip and takes guardianship. Unbeknownst to Meredith, he is there under the guise of being her handyman. Meredith just may be in for more than she bargained for.
Will the love that grows between them be strong enough to overcome the secrets that brought them both to Driftwood Lane?
Earlier this week the latest and last addition from the Nantucket series from author Denise Hunter was released from Thomas Nelson. Although this is not the first time that I have heard of Denise, this is the first opportunity I have had to read one of her novels and the first thing that I can say is that I’m sorry that I have waited so long. Through out the chapters of the story I was introduced to real characters placed in a very plausible but difficult situation in life. This novel took something rough and turned it into a beautiful seaside romance. Each page was filled with the spray of the sandy shore waves and the bark of the newly inherited dog. I could hear the sawing of wood and hammering of nails and feel the stress and questionings stares with thoughts of tomorrow in the character’s lives. I’m delighted to have been introduced to Denise’s writing and plan on gathering more of her books in the future.
Driftwood Lane is book four in the Nantucket Love Story Series, but in my experience not having read the first three I can truly say this novel stands alone and only brings forth a desire to go out and buy the first three.
