Brooke Lemon left home seven years ago and hasn’t been back. When her sister Mindy shows up on her doorstep in the midst of an emotional breakdown, will Brooke be able to help her sister?

I was entertained by the plot, and the author’s humorous writing style. I enjoyed the characters. I loved their liveliness and the realness of their personalities. The children’s antics were a joy to read. I enjoyed following the individual growth of Brooke and Mindy and I also relished seeing the sisters growing in their relationship and watching the bond strengthen between them.

I liked Mindy and I can understand and relate to her overload of having an absentee husband and three active little ones. The reader gets to see Mindy’s breakdown but we also get to see her pick herself back up. The character I liked least was Brooke. I didn’t understand why she stayed away so long and why she felt that she couldn’t share her secrets with her sister. Mindy has a kind heart and they grew up close so I didn’t understand why Brooke felt the need to leave Mindy in the dark during a time when she needed family and the love of her sister. Brooke begins to see that her sister isn’t perfect. Mindy is a woman that plans and organizes when Brooke is the type of person that freelances life. Both in their brokenness will they be able to piece back their relationship?

I enjoyed the relationship between Mindy and Linc. Linc stepped up to the plate and understood his wife’s cry for help and took action. For some reason I didn’t care much for Brooke and Garrett’s relationship. I wanted them to be together but the fact they couldn’t get past their personal hurdles because of themselves didn’t make for a good fit in the storyline. They weren’t happy apart but couldn’t see their way to be together. Readers will definitely feel the attraction of Brook to Garrett because it is mentioned several times throughout the book.

I was pleased with Garrett and his dad’s rebuilding a son/dad relationship. Garrett’s kind heart and forgiveness was touching. I liked Garrett. Because of his childhood he could have been bitter and unforgiving but this wasn’t his outcome.

Despite the few dislikes I did enjoy the mix of family, rebuilding relationships, revealing secrets and romance made this an overall good read that I would recommend.
