Publisher's Description

Meridith believes she is capable of weathering any storm. But she's never experienced a love powerful enough to uproot her...until now.

Meridith Ward has crafted a carefully ordered life to make up for the chaos that plagued her childhood years. But one phone call upsets all that. Within the span of several minutes, Meredith learns that the father who abandoned her is dead and she's been named the sole guardian of his other three children. She nervously heads to Nantucket to care for the siblings she's never met with plans to stay until their uncle returns from his trip before relinquishing guardianship to him.

She arrives to find the children living in Summer House, a Bed & Breakfast that's falling apart around them. Meridith wants to move on as soon as possible, but the inn will never sell in its dilapidated condition. Then an itinerant handyman, Jake, shows up with an offer she can't refuse.

Much like the powerful ocean just a short walk from her deck, Jake appeals to Meridith. But she senses he is also capable of pulling her under in a heartbeat. What if the thing she fears the most is exactly what she needs? Can she trust God with the details and relish the adventure?

In Driftwood Lane by Denise Hunter, Meridith Ward must overcome the emotional hurt caused by her father’s desertion and the trauma of her mother’s bipolar disorder. She must choose between a safe, stable life and the passionate, unpredictability of romance.

When her estranged father and his wife die in an accident, Meridith obtains custody of her three younger siblings. She moves to Nantucket into the family’s rundown bed and breakfast to be with the children through the rest of their school year. But no matter how hard she tries to establish a relationship, they push back. Meridith decides to give their beloved uncle custody, but since he took off on a motorcycle trip a month ago, no one can get hold of him. Here’s the big twist: the handsome handyman she hired to fix up the house is actually Uncle Jay, watching her, collecting evidence to prove he would be the better guardian. All of this chaos in Meridith’s organized life helps her to know in her heart that God is her Strong Tower and Refuge (Psalms 61:3).

Despite its dynamic opening and ingenious plot twists, Driftwood Lane leaves much to be desired in the middle and end. Denise Hunter finishes the story with a happy, but obvious ending. This reader feels that Hunter has much more to offer and wishes that the end could be as creative as the beginning. Also, for a series that is based in one distinct area of the world, I would like to have seen more descriptions of Nantucket. Hunter had a marvelous opportunity to tell her readers something more about this place but did not use it to its full advantage.

This is a pleasant conclusion to the Nantucket Love Story series, and anyone who has enjoyed the last books will be sad to see it end. While I would not recommend this book to everyone, Christian romance readers will enjoy it. – Katelyn S. Irons, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
