Synopsis: With the emotional pull of Debbie Macomber, Barbara Delinsky and Susan Wiggs, RaeAnne Thayne brings readers an uplifting, brand new story told with her trademark charm and heart.
She knows what's best for everyone but herself...
With a past like hers, Jessica Clayton feels safer in a life spent on the road. She's made a career out of helping others downsize--because she's learned the hard way that the less "stuff," the better, a policy she applies equally to her relationships. But a new client is taking Jess back to Cape Sanctuary, a town she once called home...and that her little sister, Rachel, still does. The years apart haven't made a dent in the guilt Jess still carries after a handgun took the lives of both their parents and changed everything between them.
While Jess couldn't wait to put the miles between her and Cape Sanctuary, Rachel put down roots, content for the world--and her sister--to think she has a picture-perfect life. But with the demands of her youngest child's disability, Rachel's marriage has begun to fray at the seams. She needs her sister now more than ever, yet she's learned from painful experience that Jessica doesn't do family, and she shouldn't count on her now.
Against her judgment, Jess finds herself becoming attached--to her sister and her family, even to her client's interfering son, Nate--and it's time to put everything on the line. Does she continue running from her painful past, or stay put and make room for the love and joy that come along with it? (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: The cover of this book is the first thing that called to me. I feel like it's been the longest winter, so seeing that beach in the distance just showered me with good feelings.
I liked how this was a book about family and it dealt with some difficult topics. It explores the difficulties that come with a child being diagnosed with autism. It shows how the family deals with this new reality in a very relatable way.
It was also a story about being true to yourself. Hiding and shoving difficult things under the rug doesn't make them go away. That's a lesson that Jess had to learn in this book. I enjoyed going on that journey with her.
There is also a sweet romance that occurs in this story, but it's not the main focus. I liked how it came into play with all the other things that were going on in this story.
I enjoyed this. I liked the way that it was written and how engaging it was. It was just a nice story to escape with. It was sweet. I'm glad I read it.
