      There's a reason why Mariah Stewart's Chesapeake Diaries books make the New York Times bestseller lists. They're addicting. All of the women in my family read this series, and I think I may actually have been the last one to finish the latest romance, At the River's Edge. This seventh book in the series is just as compelling as the earlier books. They're hard to put down.Each book opens and closes with Grace Sinclair's diary entries. The owner and editor of the St. Dennis Gazette chronicles the [...]

      I don't often give 5 stars to a book. In fact, I'm not a fan of giving stars at all. Since I have to then At River's Edge had to get them all. I found At Rivers Edge to be everything I want in a romance. It made me laugh, it also made me cry. More than once. This story ripped my heart out. I loved the people and the story line. I had fun visiting with everyone once again. I always enjoy Stewart's books but I have to say this one is my favorite. So far!

      Wonderfully written story taking us back to St. Dennis and all it's wonderful residents. Sophie Enright is in town visiting her brother and grandfather as well as reevaluating her life. When she makes the decision to move there permanently, she finds her life is a crazy, fun whirlwind! Great read that I highly recommend to everyone.

      I couldn't put this book down. I loved the people and the town. I am looking forward to reading more of these people. They make small town living sound more perfect every day

      Sophie was living in the big city, was a big city lawyer, and with a boyfriend who worked with her. All was going great until she caught him having sex in the backseat of his BMW in the parking garage at work. What made it worse it was with the office skank lawyer they worked with. She had no case pending and time on the books so she asked for a week’s vacation to go home to be with the family before the wedding. Her boss knowing what was going on granted it. Sophie has a lot of soul searching [...]

      Reviewed by JenReview originally posted at Romancing the BookBook provided by the publisher for reviewThere is just something about these small town romance series that just draw me in. I think a lot of it is the interconnecting stories; characters featured in past books reappearing in later books and characters introduced in a book and then get their own story a couple books down the road. And of course, there are some themes that weave in and out of the stories. At the River’s Edge is book s [...]

    • Kristine says:

      Original review found at kristineandterri/23.5 stars* I received a copy of this book from Random House Publishing Group- Ballantine Books via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.*At the River's Edge is the 7th book in the Chesapeake Diaries. Although I did not read the previous books it was easy to follow along as a stand alone. There were many references to different characters that perhaps I would have been more familiar with had I read them but it did not disrupt the flow of the book. [...]

      I've got to stop reading new books in a series when I haven't read the previous books in that series. I'm just so confused by the number of characters and I can't keep the relationships straight! At the River's Edge is the seventh book in the Chesapeake Diaries series. It's a fun read, but I would've enjoyed the subplots more had I been familiar with all the secondary characters. The main plot is terrific! Sophie leaves her old life in Ohio, moves south, joins the family law firm, and buys an ol [...]

      Hero and heroine both want the same piece of land. She wants the old stone building for a restaurant, he wants it for a shop for his landscaping company. We learn this fairly early in the story, when the heroine's in town visiting her brother and grandfather after catching her boyfriend with someone else. Lots of stuff happens that is your basic ordinary life stuff. Her brother wants her to come join him at the family law firm, but she wants to cook. There's a wedding, a visit with mom, she goes [...]

    • Gigi Ann says:

      My ThoughtsI've been reading this series (The Chesapeake Diaries) for a few years now, but I was a bit disappointed with this book. It just didn't draw me into the story. There are some aspects of the story I hated, they bordered on paranormal, which turns me off to this series. I wonder if some authors even understand what paranormal nonsense includes? This is the last book I will be reading in this series, because of the almost paranormal nonsense.This book is part of my personal library, and [...]

    • Carrie says:

      Where is the rest of the book? It ended and I had to page back because I couldn't believe that was it. Horribly disappointing. The entire book was a summary of the series before. It ended about where I was curious to see where it would go and interested to learn about the characters and the path they would take. So disappointed in this book.

    • Catherine says:

      Loved all the characters and the bond between the omen of St. Dennis. Here is Sophie finds her grandfather,and connects with him. Seeing the strength these women have,confirms the drive and determination that women really have. This story makes you yearn for life in a small town.

    • Jeanne says:

      Another good Chesapeake Diary story. This one is about Sophie Enright. She is a lawyer in Ohio and has come back to St. Dennis when she is betrayed by her boyfriend. She needs to reassess her life. She comes across an old closed restaurant and makes a leap of faith to open up this restaurant and fulfill her dreams of owning and operating her own restaurant. Of course, there is the new man in town, Jason Bowers, landscaper extraordinaire. There's mutual interest there. A good story. I like happy [...]

    • Sparkle says:

      I haven't posted many reviews within the last year but I had to address this one to juxtapose the high ratings. Mystified. I've read this author's work before and one of my complaints has been too much mundane detail. But overall, I've liked her work. This was all detail and NO STORY. I read, and skimmed, to get to the story. Finally, I looked at the page number and realized this was it. Out of 549 pages, roughly 50 pages were devoted to interaction between the couple. This was ALL background, s [...]

      Review: Five stars plus for Mariah Stewart's At the River's Edge where true love is found through faith, compassion, and forgivenessI am counting my blessings today. One blessing is what I term my reader OCD, an insatiable need to read series in order. When I received At the River's Edge by Mariah Stewart, book seven in her The Chesapeake Diaries series, I knew that I should read books one to six. What I hadn’t counted on was that there were more books from Stewart’s backlist that would eluc [...]

    • Michaela Osiecki says:

      Honestly, I couldn't even finish this one. I'm getting very tired of this series.Jason Bowers and Sophie Enright has 0% chemistry, and all of their interactions were just SO cringe-worthy and forced. The two have nothing in common at all except a piece of property they both NEED to own for some reason.

    • Ada Iaboni says:

      I've been enjoying this series of small town life and their inhabitants and trials almost as the series was written. A first for me.This one too, was a sweet story that helped a young attorney find her real passion in that small town.And, finding her true love.

      I adore Xe Sands as the narrator!

      Just in time for Valentine's Day, Mariah Stewart launches her latest novel in the Chesapeake Diaries series, At River's Edge! If you love romance stories set in a small seaside village, much like Debbie Macomber's Cedar Creek series, you will definitely want to grab these. This is her seventh novel in the series and like most readers who become addicted to their favorite author's series, I am thrilled that Mariah didn't stop at the standard three novels in a series. And before you ask, yes there [...]

    • Dawn says:

      Mariah Stewart does it again with a charming tale of a woman trying to decide where she wants to go in life, a man determined to make St. Dennis his home after leaving the memories and loss in Florida. The sparks between Jason and Sophie is instant and the minute they both get on the page together, I could see Jason is just perfect for Sophie. I loved how these two danced their way around each other and the author does a wonderful job in letting the reader experience small town life in her Chesa [...]

      I received a copy of this book from NetGalley to read and review.Having read all the previous books in the Chesapeake Dairies series, I was familiar St. Dennis, Maryland, a small town on the Bay and with most of the characters in the story. This book tells the story of two people, Jason and Sophie. Jason, proprietor of a landscape business, came to St. Dennis because the widow of his brother and her son live there, and he wants to remain close to his nephew, his only living relative.

      Good bookGood book, good author. I have read several books by Mariah Stewart and enjoyed every one and look forward to enjoying many more.

    • Lorna says:

      This book is part of the Chesapeake Diaries series and takes place in the small town of St. Dennis in Maryland, as are all of these books. I have read all of them and I guess I will keep reading them as long as the author keeps writing them. They are all heartwarming romances and while I don’t read many “just romances” any more, this is one series that I really enjoy. I have also read most of this author’s women in jeopardy, suspense novels, which is why I started reading this series in [...]
