“I thoroughly enjoy these Chesapeake Shores books. Beach Lane is the 7th book in the series. It follows Susie O'Brien, Jeff and Jo's daughter, and Mack Franklin, who had proved loyalty was his long suit when only a boy with a down and out, drunken mother. He's now a respected sports journalist, and Susie wants to change their platonic relationship just as he loses his job and she faces a deadly diagnosis. Susie's brother's get into the action too - Matthew's interest in Trace's sister, Laila stirs up a hornet's nest, and almost college grad, Luke decides to defuse Mack's gorgeous former lover, now computer guru partner, Kristen Lewis.”Sherry A wrote this review Thursday, April 4, 2013.

“Susie O’Brien and Mack Franklin have been “just friends” for about three years. That is three years too long. Susie and Mack’s friends and family are putting the pressure on these two to admit that they are dating. Susie would like to take things to the next level but she is afraid that Mack sees her as just a good friend. She will not make the first move in case Mack does feel this way and than that will just ruin things between them. It just so happens that Mack is ready also to make things official with Susie. Unfortunately before Mack can do so, he loses his job and Susie receives some news that could change things between Mack and Susie forever.
Beach Lane is book seven in the Chesapeake Shores series. I have only read about one of two books in this series. This goes to show you that you can read them as stand alone novels and enjoy them, each on their own. I can tell you that even though I have not read all the books that fans of this series and of Susie and Mack, especially will enjoy this book. Susie and Mack make a great couple, now that they finally have made it official and went from single and just friends to a couple and dating. The people of Chesapeake Shores make me want to visit. They pull together when someone is in need and their bond is strong. Beach Lane is a book that is a good as warm, apple pie.
“Very Good Book! Loved it and can't wait to read the next book in the series. This one tells the story about Mack Franklin and Susie O'Brien.”Stephanie G wrote this review Saturday, July 9, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“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.
“This is one of the Chesapeake Shores series- which is a series that I have really enjoyed-they take place in an area very much like the Chesapeake Bay region that I live in. The main characters are newlyweds facing a cancer diagnosis for her. Nice story of love and support from the extended family and how different people choose to deal with adversity in their lives.”Darlene M wrote this review Thursday, June 23, 2011.
