This is the 4th book in the series about the town of Cape Light (geddit? Cape LIGHT?), so I was missing some things about what had happened in previous books. This one--I haven't read the others, nor will I, so I don't know if they have similar themes--is About Second Chances. Two main story threads--a bitter divorced mom and the new doctor in town (who's moved, by the way, to give his daughter a second chance--she has a "horrible" stuttering problem which seems to be nonexistent except in his mind), and a long-lost black-sheep brother who comes home. And there was a man who dies and his widow wants to keep their orchard. The stories were uninspired, the characters cardboard cut-outs, and the resolutions of the problems too easy and sugar-sweet--all it takes is a little chat with saintly Reverend Ben. *gag* ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425193985, Hardcover)

A quaint New England village by the sea, Cape Light is populated by an unforgettable cast of characters who know the importance of lending a hand and cultivating gratitude. Even though their lives are sometimes touched by disappointment, the residents of this close-knit community have discovered time and again how love has the remarkable power to sustain our spirit and heal our suffering.

Ever since her bitter divorce, single mom Molly Willoughby has become increasingly disillusioned by matters of the heart. Over the years, she has shied away from love-and given up on her dream of opening her own catering business. But then she meets newcomer Dr. Matthew Foster, who inspires her to take another look at her life-and dream that success and love may be possible.

But Matthew, a widower who's come to Cape Light to make a new start for himself and his teenage daughter, is wracked with guilt over the loss of his wife. And although Molly is like a breath of fresh air, he is reluctant to risk a new relationship. But if he doesn't find a way to put the past behind him, he may miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime love...
