This story takes place not long after the family has returned to Chesapeake Shores after their Christmas in Ireland.  Luke O’Brien is still suffering the affects of Maddening Moira who’s the granddaughter of his grandmother’s old flame Dillion O’Malley.  The first thing Luke does is decide to bring a piece of Ireland to Chesapeake Shores by creating a Irish Pub.

We also find the beginning of the book taking place in Ireland and in Chesapeake Shores.  Moira and her grandfather Dillion are planning a month long trip to America to visit Nell’s world.  Moira is surprising Luke with her visit.  Moira has also finally found her calling as a photographer.  Her boss at the local pub in Ireland is already booking events for her to photograph.  Luke is also worried something is going on with his grandmother Nell, as she has stated that trip to Ireland was probably her last.  Unfortunately, Luke is sworn to secrecy about what is going on with Nell, he ends up turning to his mother to find out.

Moira learns about the women in the O’Brien family when she goes for coffee with them, hearing about their downfalls and picking themselves up again, things readers have learned through various books in the series.  Moira also learns that she has real ability with photography with the word from Megan, Luke’s aunt who has an art gallery she learns that she has a great gift with shooting faces.

We also learn that Matthew and Laila are expecting their first child, which Matthew is ecstatic over and Laila takes a bit to warm up to the idea, not wanting to set aside her goals in life.  Laila gets some sound advice on the situation by Moira and Jess.

What a great story full of romance, and learning that sometimes the words we say when professing love may not be the best but if the intention is true then love will show it’s face.  I loved the ending and how Nell looked at all her children and grandchildren, and the job she helped with them.  So sad to see this series end!
