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.
A good novel with a good ending. Not terribly compelling and with absolutely no twists or turns or the like but if you’re looking for a sweet, sometimes emotional, fun and quick read, this is it. It’s not forced, not fake, doesn’t try too hard. A cute story that is easy to enjoy.

I can’t say enough about this authors writing, and she never disappoints. I spent most of this book with tears in my eyes or sliding down my cheeks. Some were happy, some were sad. Of course there were snickers, a snort or two, and laugh out loud as well. She just always pulls me in and makes me feel.
