Book Description

5 Dec 2002 Chesapeake Bay (Book 1)

After years of reckless independence and fast living, Cameron Quinn is called home to help care for his adopted brother Seth, a troubled young boy not unlike Cameron once was. Cameron's life changes overnight, and he has to learn to live with his brothers once again.

Old rivalries and new resentments flare between the Quinn boys as they try to set aside their differences for Seth's sake. Only Seth's fate is in the hands of a tough but beautiful social worker. She alone has the power to bring the Quinns together- or tear them apart...

Other books in this series are RISING TIDES and INNER HARBOUR. And find out what happens to the now grown-up Seth in CHESAPEAKE BLUE.

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of a great reading quartet. 29 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Cameron Quinn has the life of an adventurer - he lives fast, drives fast and loves fast. Suddenly it's all over - his adoptive father is critically ill and he goes back to his childhood home and makes a deathbed promise to help care for Seth, a young boy that his Father was in the process of adopting. With his 2 adoptive brothers Phillip and Ethan, Cam has to learn to cope, not only with his young charge but against suspicions and resentments - at home and in the closeknit community - who is Seth and why does he look familiar - and most of all against Anna , the social worker.
This is a superb start to what was originally intended to be just a trilogy by Ms.Roberts - Rising Tides and Inner Harbor followed - Ethan & Phillip's stories - and then , due to pressure from fans, she relented and wrote Seth's story - Chesapeake Blue.
If you like Ms.Robert's work, this is it at it's best and if you've never read her it's a great place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quinns will find a way into your hearts 7 Dec 2003
Format:Paperback
A wonderful read from Nora Roberts. This is the 1st story of 4 and I would suggest reading the series in order: Sea Swept, Rising Tides, Inner Harbour and Chesapeake Blue. The stories carry a vivid image of the Chesapeake Bay area and tell a heart warming story of 4 young boys who have been adopted and loved by the Quinns. As the years go by they grow into strong, warm and extremely sexy men who become a family in every sense, as they come to terms with their tragic pasts and find the women who can heal them. You can't help but fall in love with them all.
The descriptions of the bay are evocative and the story is a heart warming tale. The Quinn brothers are delicious and sexy in their own ways - Cameron, a racing driver who likes to take risks; Ethan, a quiet fisherman with a musical soul; Phillip, a smooth, polished businessman with passionate depths and finally Seth, an artist, who we see as a child in the original trilogy, but who grows up and finds love in the final part of the story: Chesapeake Blue.
A very satisfying read.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good 11 Feb 2012
By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Sea Swept is the first of the Chesapeake Bay series by Nora Roberts. Cameron, Ethan and Phillip Quinn were all adopted by Ray and Stella Quinn as troubled teens. Now their widower father has died in a car accident that some suspect was suicide, leaving behind Seth, a difficult 10-year-old boy who looks remarkably like Ray, and whom he was in the process of adopting. His dying wish was that his three sons bring up Seth as their brother. Social worker Anna Spinelli is determined to realise the best outcome for Seth, but is strongly attracted to champion boat-racer Cam, extra prickly because of his suddenly curbed independence.
There is plenty of humour in the situation of three men trying to bring up well a young boy, the clashes between Anna and Cam and the interactions between the brothers, but Roberts also touches on child abuse, the importance of honesty, finding your place in life and a child's need for security and love. Roberts gives us good-looking, likeable male characters with solid personalities and great dialogue between them, strong, intelligent female characters, some hot sex scenes and the mystery of Seth's parentage. This instalment is the story of Cameron Quinn and the unsolved mystery will send readers looking for Rising Tides, the story of Ethan Quinn. I had in my head that Nora Roberts was all romance, but this was very un-Mills&Boon, and surprisingly good.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent family story 4 Sep 2011
By Mrs. A. Wright VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the first of 4 books about the Quinn family. Although all 4 Quinns appear in each book this is the story of Cameron the eldest .It tells of how all 4 must adapt to caring for Seth but it is Cameron who gives up most. He not only must bond with Seth who is a virtual stranger to him but also cope with social workers and fall in love. It is a warm lovely story although not at all sweet. It is quite rough in the Quinn House where fists are often the answer to a problem. Language is quite strong at times but very much in context with the story. I loved it

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 6 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
Nora Roberts how does she do it?
This is book one of four books about the quinn family, my copy is 1998 but I can still reread this book and enjoy.
Cameron is the elder of four adopted men, all troubled and looking for trouble when the Quinns took them in as boys,now all grown up they are called home when their father is dying, they find that he has taken in another troubled boy named Seth and they join together to make a family as their father asked them to do as he lay dying.
This book is about three grown men trying to make a home for a troubled youngster, as they learn to cope with the cooking / cleaning and setting rules ect, this book has lots of humour and is a great love story as Cameron meets Anna the social worker. Book two, and three, are the other brothers and book four is about a grown up Seth.
All four books in this series are great stories and one follows the others, if you want a great read get all four books you will not regret the purchase, all four books for me have a five star rating.
