Feature and Giveaway: Driftwood Point by Mariah Stewart

New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart returns to her Chesapeake Diaries series and to the cherished Maryland shores of St. Dennis with DRIFTWOOD POINT (Pocket Books; June 21, 2016; $7.99), the romantic tale of a man who takes a second chance on love with the high school crush who broke his heart.

Up-and-coming artist Lisbeth Parker finally has a chance to show the folks back home what it means to leave Cannonball Island and make something of yourself. As a native whose stubborn father forbade her from befriending townies, Lis always felt like an outsider in St. Dennis. While her work is on display in the local art gallery, she records her centenarian great-grandmother’s stories of the island’s rich history and falls in love with its unspoiled beauty.

Lis was Alec Jansen’s secret dream girl growing up, and now that she’s back with plans to turn her family's ramshackle cottage into an art studio, the handsome environmental engineer sees a second chance to win her heart. But when he’s hired by a builder who wants to develop the island, Alec is caught between the change he knows is coming and Lis’s desire to preserve the island and its way of life. Can Alex convince Lis that in the right hands change can be good, or will she see only betrayal?

  1. Usually love making scenes, if done wrong it makes me cring, lol

  2. I don't like love scenes that go on and on. Page after page is just ridiculous. I just flip the pages to get back to the story.

  3. Descriptions of people, places or things that go on for several paragraphs.

  4. if people are depicted on the cover and they don't look anything like their description in the book

  5. When local dialect is included & it is all SO wrong.

  6. Most times, it's the medical stuff, otherwise, my only other trigger is grammar and punctuation. Has anyone heard of spellcheck?

  7. Oh it drives me crazy when it takes forever for two in love to get together.

  8. when things are in the wrong time period, or author forgets to keep things straight with content
