A funny, frank and bittersweet look at sisters, marriage
and moving on, from the New York Times bestselling
author of the Blue Heron series.
Letting go of her ex-husband is harder than wedding-dress
designer Jenny Tate expected…especially since his new
wife wants to be Jenny’s new best friend. Needing
closure, Jenny trades the Manhattan skyline for her hometown
up the Hudson, where she’ll start her own business and
bask in her sister Rachel’s picture-perfect family
life…and maybe even find a little romance of her own
with Leo, her downstairs neighbor, who’s utterly
irresistible and annoyingly distant at the same time.
Rachel’s idyllic marriage, however, is imploding after
she discovers what looks like her husband’s
infidelity. She always thought she’d walk away in this
situation but now she’s wavering, much to
Jenny’s surprise. Rachel points to their
parents’ perfect marriage as a shining example of
patience and forgiveness; but to protect her sister, Jenny
may have to tarnish that memory—and their
relationship—and reveal a family secret she’s
been keeping since childhood.
Both Rachel and Jenny will have to come to terms with the
past and the present, and find a way to help each other get
what they want most of all.
