The USA Today bestselling author of Sweet Carolina Morning crafts a “charming and well observed novel about finding the courage to love after loss” (Holly Chamberlin, author of The Family Beach House).
Susan Schild welcomes you back to the offbeat Southern town of Willow Hill, North Carolina, for a humorous, heartwarming story of new beginnings, do-overs, and self-discovery . . .
When it comes to marriage, third time's the charm for Linny Taylor. She's thrilled to be on her honeymoon with Jack Avery, Willow Hill's handsome veterinarian. But just like the hair-raising white water rafting trip Jack persuades her to take, newlywed life has plenty of dips and bumps.
Jack's twelve-year-old son is resisting all Linny's efforts to be the perfect stepmother, while her own mother, Dottie, begs her to tag along on the first week of a free-wheeling RV adventure. Who knew women “of a certain age” could drum up so much trouble? No sooner is Linny sighing with relief at being back home than she's helping her frazzled sister with a new baby . . . and dealing with an unexpected legacy from her late ex. Life is fuller—and richer—than she ever imagined, but if there's one thing Linny's learned by now, it's that there's always room for another sweet surprise . . .
