In the close-knit community of Chesapeake Shores, Maryland, Susie O'Brien and Mack Franklin's "not dating" claim befuddles everyone, especially since the two spend every spare minute together. Susie's thrilled when their friendship finally heats up. Then, just when happily-ever-after seems within reach, Mack loses the job he loves and Susie faces a devastating diagnosis.
But O'Briens always unite in a crisis. Even her cousin Jess, Susie's rival for most of their lives, becomes her staunchest supporter --- especially when Mack's former lover comes to town. The stakes are higher than ever before, but Susie's definitely up to the challenge ... as long as Mack's right there by her side.
Grab some Kleenex. Susie and Mack have been best friends for a long time, both skirting around each other, neither one wants to admit they are "dating". Tragic and unexpected events finally bring them to confess their love to each other. Family and friends and each other provide the support they need to take on the challenges head on. Sherryl Woods uses Tim McGraw's lyrics.. "Live each day like its your last" to emphasis life is to fragile not to live each day to its fullness and tell those that matter that you love them.
