Woods, Sherryl

About this author edit data With two other careers to her credit before becoming a novelist and four states in which she's lived for extended periods of time, Sherryl Woods has collected friends and memories, along with way too much unnecessary junk. "The friends are the only things I've brought with me through the years that really matter," she says. "I could probably live without one more chintz teacup, another tin-litho sandpail or another snowglobe, but I need those friends." The theme of enduring friendships and families is always central to Sherryl's books, including her latest Chesapeake Shores series — THE INN AT EAGLE POINT, FLOWERS ON MAIN and HARBOR LIGHTS. Author of more than 100 romance and mystery novels, Sherryl Woods grew up in Virginia. Over the years she had lived in Ohio and Florida, as well as California. Currently she divides her time between Key Biscayne, Florida and Colonial Beach, Virginia, the small, river-front town where she spent her childhood summers. A graduate of Ohio State University School of Journalism, Sherryl spent more than ten years as a journalist, most of them as a television critic for newspapers in Ohio and Florida. For several years she also coordinated a motivational program for the more than 8,000 employees at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Medical Center. Her first book, RESTORING LOVE, was published in 1982 by Dell Candlelight Ecstasy under the pseudonym of Suzanne Sherrill. Her second book, SAND CASTLES, under the pseudonym of Alexandra Kirk, was published later that same year by Bantam. She began using her own name when she moved to the Second Chance at Love line at Berkley Publishing. In 1986, she began writing full-time and also began her long career at Silhouette Books with the Desire title NOT AT EIGHT, DARLING, set in the world of television which she covered for so many years. In addition to her more than 75 romances for Silhouette Desire and Special Edition, she has written thirteen mysteries — nine in the Amanda Roberts series and four in the Molly DeWitt series. When she's not writing or reading, Sherryl loves to garden, though she's not at her best on a riding lawn mower. She also loves tennis, theater, and ballet, even though her top spin has long since vanished, she's never set foot on a stage, and she's way too uncoordinated to dance. She also loves baseball and claims anyone who's ever seen Kevin Costner in "Bull Durham" can understand why. (Source: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/59446.Sherryl_Woods?from_search=true)

HEALING HANDS As a psychologist, Mallory Blake knew there were times when one had to let go. She also knew just how much it hurt.

Book Cover of A Chesapeake Shores Christmas by Woods, Sherryl

The fourth in the series tells the story of divorcee Megan O'Brien's reunion with her husband Mick. Twelve years after their divorce, they're ready to remarry, but not all of their adult children, particularly Connor (who was especially hurt by the divorce), support the decision. In an argument over it, Mick banishes Connor from Thanksgiving, and no subsequent apologies can bring him around. But the big day arrives and, with it, Connor's girlfriend, who hands over an infant named Mick, giving the family a shock: no one knew Connor had a girlfriend-or a baby. Slowly the O'Briens mend their relationships, growing stronger and closer as a family. Woods's latest is the most benign of fantasies, complete with awkward dialogue ("Age and maturity are two different matters. I'm not surprised that you don't know that, big brother."), flat characters, clunky plot devices, and a predictable outcome. It is also a surprisingly pleasant read, and sure to satisfy fans of the series. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved. From Now that their five children are all grown, Mick and Megan O’Brien have been slowly reconciling their differences and moving toward remarriage. But while Mick has changed in many important respects, Megan worries that his ingrained take-charge personality will be an issue; she is unwilling to abandon her independence until everything falls perfectly into place and all five of her children approve. Connor, especially, hides his hurt behind an insouciant facade; and when the O’Briens discover that he’s also been hiding his longtime girlfriend and their nine-month-old baby from them, Mick loses his temper and jeopardizes his final chance at happiness. Woods continues her popular and heartwarming Chesapeake Shores contemporary romance series with a holiday-themed second-chance romance for the elder O’Briens, while updating her readers on their children and paving the way for Connor, his sister Jess, and good friends Susie and Mack to find their own true loves in her upcoming trilogy. --Lynne Welch
