Lilac Lane, the latest in Sherryl Woods’ Chesapeake Shores series, pairs fiery redhead Kiera Malone with Bryan Laramie, her handsome and temperamental neighbor, in a battle that encompasses the kitchen and the heart.

Kiera leaves Ireland to be with her family in America, longing for an escape from the sadness of her former life. Married at an early age to a drunkard, her divorce left her raising three children alone and just scraping by. Years later, when she finally dared to open her heart to a good man, he suffered a fatal heart attack and died, leaving her feeling devastated and adrift.

On arriving from Dublin, Kiera is taken on as a consultant at the Irish pub her son-in-law runs. At O’Brien’s Pub, Kiera is flung into the kitchen where Chef Bryan Laramie, tormented by his own past, rejects her ideas. But sparks fly. Their respective family and friends fly into full matchmaker mode, but it doesn’t take a basket of O’Briens to make Kiera and Bryan suspect they may be right for each other.

When Bryan’s long-lost daughter, Dillon, bursts onto the scene, it seems Kiera and Bryan’s romance may have to be pushed to the background, but thanks to the family’s devious plotting, a charity cooking contest will soon bring them on stage together and force them to take charge of their own future.

Set against the ticking clock of Kiera’s visa expiration, Lilac Lane is as charming and vibrant as an Irish spring. Fans of the hit TV show based on the series will be delighted by this new installment.
