From bestselling author Sheila O'Flanagan comes an unforgettable tale of family ties pushed to their very limit.
To her younger sister, Tessa, Caroline O'Shaughnessy has everything - great looks, easy charm, and the distinctly desirable Damien Woods.
But for Caroline, things don't feel quite so rosy. She'd dreamed about moving in with Damien, but not about having his child, just yet. And though he did the honourable thing when she told him she was pregnant, it obviously wasn't what he wanted either. And as both of them struggle to make the best of a bad job, neither are prepared for the impact a moment of drunken indiscretion will have not just on their lives but on Tessa's too...

Review by StoryB
A moment of low self-esteem and a surprised whim turns into a debacle for two sisters, complicating an already stressed personal facet of the elder sister.A thick book, but it didn't take too long to read as the writing is easy and fluent.Two stars because characterisation and setting (action and description wise) is underdone even though there are so few characters. The plot and writing doesn't interchange enough to avoid becoming mundane, yet it would be unfair to assume every book should be adventurous. Some of the dialogue reads a bit jejune and the feud between the sisters goes on for far too long. But I still did enjoy this book and could feel the Irish charm. A pleasant book to read when you like to take a break from more involved, bold stories.
