With two young daughters, a looming book deadline, and an attractive but complicated distraction named Adam complicating her situation even further, Joss has to decide what she wants for her family―and what family even means.
First of al I want to say I loved it. I occasionally have a hard time when I am reading and the book jumps POV but I must have been in the right mood as it didn't bother me a bit. This is a very character driven story line and you really get a feel for the authors background as a counselor as the characters have many layers to their personality and I found it very interesting to see how my opinion of them changed and developed through reading others interactions with them. If your looking for a Hallmark story with a happy ending this book is not for you, This is a story of a family in crisis and how they are dealing or not dealing with the situation they have found themselves in. If your looking for that white knight you will not find it here.
This isn't my usual go to read and it was a bit out of my element but I'm glad I gave it a go.
I gave this a 4 out of 5 star
