I absolutely loved the brothers trilogy, it was truly my favorite of all Nora Roberts trilogys. Of course I do love them all! This book was telling the story of Seth as he now is grown up. I felt like I knew the entire family and cared about each and every one of them.
Seth is home with his family, the business, and the mother who has followed him over the years since he was a young boy. Blackmailing him, doing her best to ruin everything for him and for the family that gave him everything and made him who he is. Although he's all grown up now, he'll still pay her off, do just about anything to protect the family he loves.
Dru enters the picture, who has fled a cheating fiance and the life of the wealthy in Washington D.C. to strike out on her own in St. Chris. She owns a flower shop and does her best to fit into the community. Given her experience with men, she doesn't want to fall in love, doesn't even want to date. But Seth can be as convincing as any of the Quinn men and Dru finds herself in love with Seth.
I think Nora Roberts did an excellent job with this ending story. Her plot was great, the ending was a surprise and all the characters we loved in this trilogy have returned. If you start with this book you may want to read the first three to start.

The amazing Quinn family is back!
Seth, the youngest Quinn, is home for the first time in years. An acclaimed painter, who is blessed with a gift he can't quite explain, Seth is as handsome and dynamic as the other Quinns. He comes home to find things in St. Chris much the same, with the exception of lovely Dru Whitcomb-Banks, a new shopkeeper in town. Dru is not what Seth expected and he soon finds himself drawn to her, despite his unsavory roots. She's carrying quite a bit of baggage herself, but finds that she's falling for him just the same.
Nora Roberts had already built a compelling family that intrigued readers through the first of the Chesapeake Bay saga, Sea Swept, Rising Tides and Inner Harbor. But in response to overwhelming reader demands (she dedicates the book to "Every reader who ever asked, "When are you going to write Seth's story?") she writes Seth to be as dreamy and decidedly alpha as the other Quinn men. Dru is a perfect match for Seth, strong willed and determined and also a bit of a lost soul. The combined traits make the couple vibrant and interesting. On top of that, you get to revisit your favorite characters from the first three books and find out what's become of them and their children. Nora's greatest gift is her ability to write a family that keeps the reader's attention.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to both first time, or habitual Noraholics! If this is your first Nora book, I suggest that you read the first three in the saga before reading Chesapeake Blue. You'll find your enjoyment of the story even greater having met the secondary characters before.
Nora's done it again!

"Chesapeake Blue" by Nora Roberts is a wonderful addition to the excellent Chesapeake Bay trilogy of "Sea Swept", "Rising Tides", and "Inner Harbor". The much-anticipated tale of Seth Quinn has finally arrived, and it was well worth the wait. Nora Roberts has written a romantic, insightful, and touching tale that stays true to the original trilogy and is sure to have readers everywhere cheering and begging for more.
Seth Quinn, the troubled and angry young boy adopted by Cam, Ethan, and Phillip after the death of their father, Ray Quinn, is all grown up and coming home. Now a successful painter who has conquered Europe, all Seth wants is to return to the big white house on the bay and be with his family. Troubled by a secret that has weighed on him heavily for more than a decade, Seth needs the peace that only home can bring.
And it is absolutely wonderful to see all of the characters we fell in love with in the previous three books. We see the most of Cam and Anna, because Seth lives with them, but Ethan and Grace, and Phillip and Sybill are never far away. Though 18 years have passed, not a whole lot has changed as far as the Quinn family dynamics are concerned (though the family has grown considerably), which I was immensely relieved to see. Grace and Ethan's daughter Aubrey is all grown up as well, and is a very important part of Seth's life.
Though some things never change, like the love and support Seth's family will always provide, there have been some changes in his hometown of St. Christopher. The most fascinating of which is the arrival of Drusilla Whitcomb-Banks, who has moved from D.C. and opened a flower shop. Intrigued by the beautiful Drusilla, Seth sets about trying to get to know her better. Dru, who comes from a wealthy and influential family, has come to St. Chris to get away from the demands of her previous life. Seth is determined to paint the lovely Drusilla, and as he convinces her to pose for him, and spends as much time with her as possible, the two of them begin to fall in love.
The romance between Seth and Dru is beautifully rendered and sure to touch readers' hearts. Drusilla is slow to trust and wary of relationships, but her misgivings are no match for Seth's charm, warmth, and love. Seth and Dru make a fabulous couple, and I was completely caught up in their developing relationship.
But trouble is brewing on the horizon, and the painful secret that Seth has been hiding for years is about to come back with a vengeance. Linked to his painful past, Seth's secret has the ability to destroy his new love and hurt his family. Conflicted, unhappy, and determined to keep Dru and his beloved family out of the mess he is in, Seth is heading for disaster. Will Seth trust in Dru's love, bite the bullet, and tell her and his family the truth? The tight knit Quinn clan always sticks together when one of them is in trouble, but they can't help Seth if they don't know what's wrong. Will some visitations from the ghost of Stella Quinn be enough to convince Seth to share his burden? Or will Seth let his past destroy his newfound love and happiness?
"Chesapeake Blue" is a truly heart-warming and affecting tale that had me smiling and wiping away tears throughout. Seth Quinn is a great hero, and readers are guaranteed to fall in love with the sensitive, strong, and fun-filled man who grew from a scared and angry boy. Dru is, likewise, a great heroine. She's independent, determined, and a very loving person when you get below the surface. Add in the amazing Quinn clan from the previous three novels, and you've got yourself an incredible and complex cast of characters. Nora Roberts has an undeniable gift for creating families that readers would love to be a part of, and the Quinns are one of her greatest triumphs. "Chesapeake Blue" is a superb read, and it focuses just as much on the love and importance of family as it does on the romance between Seth and Dru. Nora Roberts has really outdone herself with this one, so buy "Chesapeake Blue" today.

Seth Quinn is all grown up and has returned home. He is a very successful artist, and while his family is excited to see him, they know something is wrong.

Gloria DeLauter is Seth's biological mother. She has been making threats to all he holds dear. While he is now an adult, her presence brings out his insecurities and old fears Seth thought he had banished. He has been paying her blackmail for years, but when she ups the ante; Seth knows he has to go to his family for help.

This is a good conclusion to the series. In this book we see the family dynamic come full circle. They laugh, argue, but they do it all as a family.

Chesapeake Blue is the fourth in Nora Robert's Chesapeake bay trilogy, and, in my opinion, it is the weakest of the series. I will probably received many negative votes for this review, (especially in a forum of so many positive votes), but, here's the deal: Chesapeake Blue was an average read for me. The plot seemed contrived, the characterization forced, and the story suffering from the forced inclusion of too many characters from previous books.
Chesapeake Blue is the story of late 'twenty-something' Seth Quinn. Seth has decided to return to the small water front town, this time to stay, and hooks up with rich girl Drusilla Whitecomb. Both Seth and Dru have 'issues' they need to work out before getting together.
Seth: I had a great deal of difficulty envisioning Seth as a romantic lead from the way he is written. He still seems to be a little boy running away from his problems. (Personally, I really wish Nora had chosen to write about Aubrey, she was much more interesting as an adult). In Nora tradion Seth is a 'super rich, fantastically talented artistic bachelor', who can't seem to take no for an answer. He seemed to be very immature, and was really pushy with his relationship with Dru. I disliked the way he manipulated Dru to do things she didn't want to do, by using his art and artistic talent as a weapon, and I found his vocabulary and mannerisms.... Somewhat childish. (And I'm not referring to the cussing, that didn't bother me).
Dru: Dru was a much more interesting character, but was oodles more mature than Seth. Although her dysfunctional relationship with her parents was touched upon, this was never resolved to my satisfaction, and I failed to see that Dru and Seth had much in common as a couple aside from sexual chemistry.
The highlight of this story was NOT Seth and Dru's relationship, but seeing what had happened to the rest of the Quinns- but even there, Nora takes few risks. She portrays the Quinn extended family, as too perfect, a little too cohesive and a little too good to be true. I have come to expect a little more realism from Nora. Also, the Quinn's have lost a bit of their 'blue collar feel' which I really liked.
So, overall, I felt CB was an average novel with few surprises. Perhaps Aubrey's tale will be better?
