It is a truth universally acknowledged that all mothers want to see their daughters happily settled. But for Lara, mother to Maudie and stepmother to Jasmine and Eve, realizing this ambition has not been easy.
With an ex-husband embarking on a new marriage, and the surprising and late blooming developments in her own love life to contend with, Lara has enough to worry about, especially with Eve's upcoming wedding. And when she begins to fear that Eve is marrying a man who will only make her unhappy, and Maudie reveals something that shocks the entire family, Lara faces the ultimate dilemma.
Does she step in and risk the wrath of her daughters? Or does she stand by and watch them both make what she fears will be the biggest mistakes of their lives?

Review by janglen
I read this very shortly after reading Joanna Trollope's Daughters-in-law. The two books are from the same genre and are very similar in content, and reading them so close together rather spoilt my enjoyment of this one. Nevertheless it is well written and a good way to pass a long day day at airports. I just wish I liked the three girls more.
