Cassie grew up close to her sisters until the day she ran off with a man her family didn't approve of. Now years later she's trying to put that terrible decision behind her and get a house for her and her daughter. She starts volunteering at Habitat for Humanity on the road to getting her own house when she meets Steve, a house-builder with his own issues. The two begin a romance just as Cassie has the opportunity to reconnect with her sisters. Karen seems to be the most put together with a steady husband, good job, and a few kids. Of course not everything is perfect within her household. Nichole seems to have the perfect homelife with a husband who dotes on her, a new baby she adores, and the ability to do whatever she wants at anytime. When the three sisters come together they realize where they went wrong all those years ago and how to be there for each other now when life comes at them hard.
I really enjoyed the fact Cassie was the one in an easy patch. She'd been through the terrible stretches in her life. She'd gone through homelessness, abuse, and loss of family early and now things were on the upswing. She was getting a house, found a new romance, and tried to make amends with the family she left. Instead of her being the victim and a basketcase, she was really put together.
On the other hand the two sisters who had judged Cassie so much and had never bothered to see if she was in trouble were the ones dealing with issues. They were the ones struggling to see how their lives were starting to splinter around them. It was refreshing to see the shoe on the other foot.
While I enjoyed the book I struggled through bits of it. The general premise really hinged on the three sisters and to be honest they were all kind of boring when they were together. Sure the reconciliation was nice but it was the most boring part of the book and I wished it had been more off-page. I much preferred the scenes surrounding the romances/marriages. I wanted more there. I wanted confrontations and dealing with the issues. Instead everything got thrown at us in the last 15 pages and there was no resolution. Bad idea Ms. Macomber.
I'd recommend this one for fans but if you need a Macomber to start with, I'd recommend Rose Harbor. Those books are my favorite of hers and I look forward to each one. Plus I'm a sucker for innkeeper stories.
