Giveaway: Home Again by Mariah Stewart

21 Sep

Home Again is the second book in Mariah Stewart’s Chesapeake Diaries series.  Having read the first and the second book, I think that this one really does stand alone, and it won’t diminish your enjoyment of either one if you read them out of order.

Unfortunately, reading the back cover might, so I need to come up with my own summary!  (Click here for my full review)

Dallas MacGregor is a highly successful Hollywood actress– but that success didn’t carry over to her choice of husband.  Luckily, the divorce was almost final before his latest creative endeavor, a sex tape with two young women, hit the Internet.  It’s pretty clear that his interest in Dallas is only what she could do for his career, and his interest in their 6 year old son is non-existent.

Dallas returns to her childhood retreat and the one person that can really understand the pressures of Hollywood life– Her Great Aunt Berry, a Hollywood legend, and her  estate in a small town.

Dallas begins to rebuild her life, and build a new life for her son, while she tries to figure out what role (if any) her childhood sweetheart will play.

If you want to know more, read an excerpt.

    For a retreat I remember when I was growing up on the farm I had a special tree that I would always go to when I wanted to be alone. I wish I could go back there!

    Sometimes I see my car as a retreat, when I’m not really heading any where and just driving, it’s a nice moment of quiet. 🙂
