This 12th book in the Chesapeake Diaries series was another good addition to the saga of St. Dennis and Cannonball Island. And before I even start the review, I think I could guess who would be the focus of book 13 (if Mariah Stewart decides another book should be released!)
The focus of this book brings you face to face with domestic violence and a young woman’s struggle to develop confidence in herself and her abilities. And then you have the young man who will hopefully help Chrissie accomplish those abilities.
I loved how the author managed to bring back the characters from the first 11 books…some having a bigger role than others. However, because it has been a while since I read the eleventh book in the series, I struggled remembering details of some of the characters. That didn’t take away from the story too much, but it would have helped me to have a synopsis of the characters at the beginning of the book to refresh my memory.
Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
