    1. Review by Valerie: Book four in this series and while predictable can be a boring thing, in this instance, it’s not. Predictable for this series is like going home to put on your favorite pajamas and snuggle up with hot chocolate on a cold night with a fire crackling in the fireplace. You know the two characters will end up together but getting there is most definitely the fun.Brooke has a lot to overcome in this book. She’s returned to town to live with her mom and brother, along with her s [...]


    2. If you've read the others in the series, you get more of the same in Hometown Girl (the 4th in the series), but it seemed to all go a little smoother this time. I kind of missed the suspense. Not that it was less enjoyableese books are all about relaxing into the idyllic hometown you never had, and not having too many bumps in the road is part of that. I enjoy them for the sweet, little diversions they are, and I look forward to the next one (which seems like it might have a little more suspense [...]


    3. Could have been, should have been but just wasn't up to par for me. The story was there to be told and the characters had so much potential. Instead, we got bogged down in so many different activities being planned, taking place and just plain bungling up the whole main story. There was too much emphasis placed on cupcake baking, wedding planning, party planning, parades, Halloween activites, etc. -- and no relationship building. The chemistry was there - but it didn't even begin to spark the st [...]


    4. Meeting familiar characters that have starred in earlier stories in this fun and fresh series was a pleasure. Stewart, yet again, crafted a mouthwatering tale of a business owner who has a gift in the kitchen, but instead of Steffie and her ice cream, this story follows a cupcake chef. Although reading Stewart’s decadent descriptions—again made me gain about five pounds in my search for tasty treats in reality—it wasn’t as romantically exciting as Almost Home. Perhaps because of the lack [...]


    5. I can't explain what keeps me reading this series. Somehow, I love the characters. Yet these stories take me longer to read than they should. I can put them down for a day or two and be okay with that. It's very confusing to me.As I said, I love the characters. But it's mostly the girls. For some reason I get the names of the guys confused. I like the characters, but something about them makes it hard for me to keep their names straight.I am looking forward to the story of Clay and Lucy. Mariah [...]


    6. I wanted a cheesy and fun romance and this was just bad. I don't even care to finish it. All the characters are bland and the story is kind of trite. Here's this small town with all these trendy little shops that you wouldn't find in a small farming community. Not to mention the organic farm and the plans for a microbrewery. Urgh. Too much. The book reads kind of goody, goodyish then you get to this odd make out scene that doesn't fit with the tone of the first 60% of the book. I'm not going to [...]



    7. So far, of all the Chesapeake Diaries' books that I've read - this one seemed to fall the most flat and the most susceptible to tired old tropes and sexist overtones. For shame, Miss Stewart, for shame.*spoilers ahead, beware*At first, I really liked the character of Brooke - even more than Vanessa who has her own somewhat sketch and tragic backstory - because for Brooke her trauma was an ongoing thing and something that still haunted her years later. Which was realistic, but honestly, who just [...]


    8. Life was always just about perfect for Brooke Madison Bowers. She was the prettiest, most popular girl in small-town St. Dennis, Maryland, a prom queen, local pageant star, and the pride and joy of her loving parents. She even married the man of her dreams. But the promise of happily ever after fell to pieces when her husband was killed while serving in Iraq. Brokenhearted and longing for the solace of better days, she returns to the idyllic world of St. Dennis, and the familiar comfort of the f [...]


    9. I was thrilled to have found all of this series, Chesapeake Diaries, on Hoopla.I've had much to do, requiring physical labor, the last few weeks that these books were a good companion to me during that time.I've enjoyed them a lot, even though the stories are simple and most have little drama to contend with. They are family and romance oriented stories that make one wish of life in a small, caring little town.


    10. Second one I read in "The Chesapeake Diaries" but I am not ready them in order as I I am borrowing e-books from my local library and they don't have all of the books. I found that it doesn't seem to minimize the enjoyment of reading the book. The characters are interesting and there is enough twists and turns to keep a reader interested. I read a lot of James Patterson and Lisa Jackson so this "home town niceness" is a great relaxation away from terror, death and the savage "real" world.


    11. I have been enjoying the Chesapeake Diaries' charactersevery book brings in one or two more characters and keeps the old ones it's like visiting old friends.Good summer readght and cheerful.




    12. Mariah Stewart's latest installment in The Chesapeake Diaries series is one of those quiet romances where nothing much exciting happens. This isn't necessarily bad: Our heroine, Brooke, was widowed when her husband is killed while deployed to Iraq and now, three years later, she is finally getting her life back on track. Brooke has moved home to St. Dennis, gone back to school to finish a business degree, is finally overcoming her deserved reputation as the town's mean girl, and is planning to o [...]


    13. Brooke Madison Bowers needs a fresh start on her life, not just on her professional life but also in her love life as well. Being a widow for over two years now since her husband was killed in Iraq, she faces the challenges of learning to let go of her fears and embrace the opportunities that will come her way in the small town of St. Dennis, Maryland.Living with her brother Clay and her young son, Logan on the family farm, Brooke is already begin to take on new challenges. She is a wonderful an [...]


    14. When we first meet Brooke Madison Bowers in this series, it was in the context that she was the rival to Dallas MacGregor for Grant's affection back in high school. Brooke wasn't always the best person back in the day and that makes it difficult for the two women to be friends now. However, when their two boys become best buddies, it is time to put the past behind them. Brooke is doing her best to mend the relationships from the past, as well as helping her son to adjust to the fact that his dad [...]



    15. You should know going into this that this is the fourth book in The Chesapeake Diaries series because I did not. I thought it was kind of weird that some previous story lines were mentioned or hinted at but didn't realize this was part of a series until the end. And then I felt cheated because now I wish I had read the first three books first because when all of the previous characters are mentioned I feel like I maybe would have enjoyed them more had I known more of their back story. But with t [...]


    16. Hometown Girl Chesapeake Diaries #4 by Mariah StewartBrooke is back in town living at her brothers (Clay) house and he runs the vineyard.Her son is just now 8 and her husband never got to celebrate his birthday-he died in the war.She's been busy with classes and now her new cupcake business that is taking off as others are helping to sell them at events.She runs into Jessie who is also now back in town to take over where his dad left off at the lawyer business. She's getting all her and her sons [...]


    17. (Chesapeake Diaries #4) Brooke was the typical pretty and popular small town girl and married the man of her dreams who later was killed in Iraq with a small son Logan. She does not want to fall in love and sets her sights on opening a cupcake bakery. I thought she was very boring and not very interesting in the book. However, the hot sexy Jesse, a new attorney in town escaping the reputation of his irresponsible father moves to St Dennis to take over his grandfather’s law practice and prove h [...]


    18. It saddens me to say that Hometown Girl was not my favorite book of the series. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that this is a bad book. I just wasn't drawn into it, like I was Home Again.You have to respect Brooke for the maturity that she has now. She is ALWAYS trying to over come her past. Probably a little bit more than she should. I could not imagine having to endure the things that she did. I think her story is gripping in that alot of military women have to deal with the same things.Je [...]


    19. Brooke and Jesse had more chemistry than Stewart's previous couples, so I'm not sure why the author felt the need to gloss over the romantic scenes. It was as if Stewart were sabotaging her own story. Same goes for the flow of the novel. I was really excited to see the story progressing without the diary entry repeats. Just as I thought, "it's nice to be rid of those interruptions," I turned the page to find one of Miss Grace's entries. The book had SO much unrealized potential.I have come to lo [...]


    20. This story is my favorite so far in this series.There was a lot of fun-time comedy in the story and in Brooke ans Jesse's building relationship. I LOVED the whole idea of dating but she doesnt know it's happening (very humorous) and kept this book a page turner for me.Brooke's growth as a person was very well told and so was Jesse's growth with his family. AND their relationship growth was very predominant as well in the book. It was a really good mix of both personal growth AND hea! I had a lot [...]


    21. When I started reading this series, I enjoyed it, but as I continue to read each book, I find that they more or less follow the same premise, or run of the mill reporting, so to speak. I found it very predictable, and not very exciting, unless you find a lot of cupcake baking, and ice cream making exciting. Of course there was some wedding planning in between all the baking of those cupcakes, and the making of ice cream of special favors.And to top it off, the ghostly part close to the end of th [...]


    22. Another enjoyable book in this series that takes place in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay. Each of the books centers on a different character but all the characters run through all the books. This book revolves around Brooke Madison Bowers, a young widow, who is hesitant about moving on in her life. She is concentrated on her education and starting her new Cupcake business. There are many eligible men who are interested in Brooke but she is not ready to pursue a relationship. It take a specia [...]


    23. Brooke isn't the same girl she was when she lived hear as a child. She's grown up and is a widow raising an 8 year old son alone. She's back at the farm and has a plan to finish her degree and start a cupcake business. She is a very determined young woman and I like her spunk to do it on her own. Jesse Enright, new lawyer in town, faced off with his grandfather, to prove he is a good man and nothing like his father. He's attracted to her but he doesn't want to be 'one date and then done.' I like [...]


    24. Like slipping into a warm bath. A few deepfelt tingles and just warm comfort all around. As much as I love her thrillers, I love her contemps just ad much.And whoa. Did I read the diary entry right at the end of the book? Is she goibg to incorporate her Magellan series into this series in the same way she did the Shields FBI series? Awesome and brilliant.Also, one other note. I love how each book in this series is bracketed by diary entries from Grace, the longtime resident, newspaper owner and [...]


    25. I am really enjoying this series The Chesapeake Diaries. This is a completely new genre for me and whilst I was wary of it being a bit ."light" I have been oh so pleasantly surprised. I really like the comfort in knowing that in the end everything will work out. One way or another. You don't get what I call the "message in a bottle " ending. I refer of course to a horrible film by the same name that I hated the ending of. These books I have read i think 3 in the series are great because you know [...]


    26. This series always gets better and better. I loved Brooke and Jesse, especially Jesse. I loved how he wanted to make everyone happy, and especially his relationship with his grandfather. What he did for his grandfather was just amazing and I had tears in my eyes. I just felt so bad that Rose, his grandmother, wasn't there to share everything with their family. And it's always good to see old favorites too, like Dallas, Steffie, and Vanessa. This book was really good. I'm looking forward to the n [...]
