#Review - DRIFTWOOD POINT By Mariah Stewart

Dirftwood Point is the perfect summer vacation on the beach with friends. I know I certainly enjoyed my visit to St. Dennis and Cannonball Island. It was great to catch up with old friends and really great to make a few new friends.

Lisbeth Parker has came home to Cannonball Island to visit her Grandmother Ruby and show her beautiful work at the local gallery. Lis has not had an easy life and her father's beliefs made her life difficult. I really liked Lis and enjoyed watching her work her way through a crossroads in her life. She has been so busy with life in the big city and doesn't know what is missing from her life until her Grandmother Ruby ever so helpfully shows her a few things.

Now Ruby is one of those ladies that I would love to sit down and have a cup of tea with. This lovely lady is funny yet serious and has a way of pointing things out and direction her loved ones without really saying much of anything at all. I have a feeling Ruby could keep me entertained for hours with her stories and tales. I instantly adored Ruby and knew right away I was going to enjoy this story because she added such a special touch.

Alec Jansen is one of those guys that can do just about anything. He can turn a spare area into a living space, show the world what they should and shouldn't do to protect the environment on the island, and in Lisbeth's case, show her a taste of what her prom night could have been like if things had been different. Alec is a sweet guy that you can't help but fall for. 

Mariah Stewart has created yet another compelling story with delightful characters with a setting that has it's own unique history. I was fascinated by the details of the history behind Cannonball island and how it had effected those on the island and those across the bridge in St. Dennis.

I relished my chance to catch up with all the folks from St. Dennis to see how every has been since my last visit. Never fear if this is your first visit to St. Dennis, Driftwood Point is part of The Chesapeake Dairies series but will stand on it's own just fine. I can not wait for my next visit. I know it will be yet another delectable read from the very talented Mariah Stewart.

I was given the opportunity to read this spectacular story so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Driftwood Point.
