Dating Matthew O’Brien - a playboy and a younger man - cost Laila Riley her career and her parents’ respect. A high price, even for love - and when Laila decides it was just a fling, she breaks it off, despite Matthew’s objections.
But the O’Brien family has other ideas, and they conspire to get Laila to join them on a Dublin holiday. It’s a great time to get away from it all, but Laila has reservations about the trip. Matthew’s bound to be there, and she’s far from immune. What if she can’t resist temptation?
Meanwhile, the O’Briens are in an uproar over matriarch Nell’s unexpected romance with an old flame. Will she follow her heart despite the risks? And will Laila discover that some risks are actually once-in-a-lifetime opportunities?

“Sherryl Woods always delights her readers — including me!” (Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times best-selling author)
“Sherryl Woods gives her characters depth, intensity, and the right amount of humor.” (RT Book Reviews)
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
I have read all the O'Brien books and they are pretty good. I felt this one fell short of the punch. It was okay. I am not too disappointed I got it. Sometimes I listen to the books more than once.
This was a short book yet it seemed like it dragged a bit. Maybe because it didn't hold my interest and anticipation.
This one I am not sure I will listen to several times. All in all I will be happy to continue with the O'brien family.
The various stories with the main story kept the book moving. Sappy gave way to confrontational and each family member was involved. Wished for more distinctive character voices...but in a family many sound alike. Christmas for me is always a good theme. The results of finding lost love is a good cliff hanger.
Yes, I really like the series and the O'Brians. I do wish that Sherryl Woods wrote a bit better and stopped using the same words and phrases over and over. Why does she use the word
To relax I listen to my books. It's like yoga but better, you don't have to bend your body!!
The O'Brien Family is a wonderful family and it was so apparent that the family cares about each other and respects everyone.
THAT EVERYONE WAS THERE.
It was as great as all the others.
