Review by jolzyn
The story evolved around the Liddiards' family members; Lucy, Mickey Patrick, Mandy, Caroline and James together with Mandy's family; Keith and Ginny. There are a few story in between them which has make the story plot very interesting. In order to save the brewery company, Patrick make the decision to proposed to Mandy in the hope that Mandy's father. Keith will be able to continue to help them without knowing that Keith, himself is also bugged with personal problem. Their impending marriage have given a source of hope for Lucy, who is bored and trying hard to find her own footing after all her children has grown and no longer need her help. There is also the story of Caroline, who is at her verge of depression and in need of her husband's help and attention which she is not getting from.This book have many characters and i believe some are from the earlier books which sort of making the story plot to be interesting. This is something that i did not expect from this author. The story line was very engaging and at times as a reader, i wonder and really excited to know what the next thing that could happen and can hardly put the book! I like Lucy's and Mayday's characters very much as they are independent and are more generous as compared to the others characters especially when both of them have to sacrifices for the sake of their loved ones; Mickey and Patrick
