It's two hours past my bedtime, but I had to read to the end to achieve closure on the mystery of the identity of Campbell's father. It is to the author's credit that I didn't actually see the answer coming until it was standing right next to her - a well crafted mystery.
I found the characters realistic in their imperfections and bad choices, and relatable as they grappled with pain, regret, and revelations from the past. The story explores different perspectives, ensemble-style, weaving a three dimensional story in the joys and pains of the characters that orbit around Campbell's mother Suzanne. I genuinely cared what happened to them.
Some of the plot points were a little incredible, but the appealing characters, the charm of the characters, particularly Campbell as the main protagonist, and the quality writing have left me wanting more. I see there are more books in this series - I'm going to go looking for them now.

Wonderful.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 June 2017
Oh my! This book had me in tears from the very start. I loved it! I sat up late at night reading and crying. Its an emotional story and it touched me deeply. I liked how it was told from different view points yet it all flowed seamlessly. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

Four StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 October 2017
Excellent read, slow start but by halfway through was needing to turn the pages quicker!
Good story lineReviewed in Canada on 1 March 2021
This was a great story line and I gave it 4 stars even though there were a lot of mistakes in it. I like to visualize the story in my head as I read and I often had to keep going back to see if I’d read it wrong earlier. Sometimes it was not clear who was speaking either. So needs better editing. However it did keep me intrigued even though I did guess who her father was as soon as they found the secret confession in the scrapbook. I did enjoy it for the most part but the end left you hanging about the romance between Luke and Campbell, and I surprised there was no mention of her grandfather being at the memorial seen as she’d forgiven him. I suppose that’s in the next book.
Delightful!Reviewed in Canada on 3 July 2017
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. Each woman had a secret and a story to share. They where all interesting and invested in each other. Unconditional love and forgiveness was shown. It was delightful!
