Publisher Description

New York Times–Bestselling Author: “Emotional depth is seared into every page along with wry banter, bringing readers to tears and smiles.” —Library Journal (starred review)

Ainsley O’Leary is so ready to get married—she’s even found the engagement ring her boyfriend has stashed away. What she doesn’t anticipate, after eleven years together during which she nursed him through cancer, is being blindsided by a breakup that he chronicles in a blog . . . which (of course) goes viral. Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley moves in with her older half sister, Kate, who’s struggling with a sudden loss of her own in upstate New York.

Kate’s always been the poised, self-assured sister, but becoming a newlywed—and a widow—in the space of four months overwhelms her. Though the sisters were never close, she starts to confide in Ainsley, especially when she learns her late husband was keeping a secret from her.

Despite the murky blended-family dynamic that’s always separated them, Ainsley’s and Kate’s heartaches will bind their summer together as they come to terms with the inevitable imperfection of relationships and family—and the possibility of one day finding love again . . . .

“Higgins’s page-turner highlights both the complexity of family relationships and the intense power of love.” —Publishers Weekly

“A captivating read about two sisters dealing with love, loss and new beginnings. What sets this book apart is how one event changes both women’s lives. Kate is refreshingly frank in her inner monologue, and Ainsley is charmingly self-aware and wry.” —RT Book Reviews, 5 stars (Top Pick)

“Higgins’ complex, witty characters will seem like close friends, and readers will savor each and every page . . . [Higgins is a] women’s-fiction star.” —Booklist (starred review)
