Publisher's Summary

Annie

A loving mother and wife, Annie O'Neill was the heart of the small community of Kiss River. But her generous nature hid a darker side that remained secret for years after her tragic death.

Lacey

When Lacey O'Neill finally learns the shattering truth about the mother she's spent a decade emulating, the foundation of her life begins to crumble. Then her close childhood friend dies, leaving her teenage daughter, Mackenzie, in Lacey's care, and Lacey unwillingly finds herself in the role of mother.

Mackenzie

Uprooted by her mother's death, Mackenzie resents her new home of Kiss River. She wants nothing to do with the father who never knew she existed - and especially not her mother's oldest friend. But the person who could understand her best might be the one she resents most: Lacey.

Critic Reviews

"Complex, credible characterization. . . . Even readers who are not already fans will sympathize with the flawed but caring people [Chamberlain] compassionately evokes." ( Publishers Weekly)

Nice ending for the trilogy

The narrator was Terrific! Tempo was right & I always knew who was speaking because she altered her voice for each character.

The story tied up all the loose ends from the other books.

Enjoyed it a lot.

Great trilogy

Diane Chamberlain does it again. I loved hearing how the members of this family grew up & continued on through the stories. I love the twists & turns.
And to hear the same awesome narrator through series kept the stories flowing. Great job!!!

I almost didn’t purchase it after listening to the sample

I complained of my last review about the terrible Boston accent used by the narrator in book one.
But I really enjoyed book 2 and three and think Diane Chamberlain is a fantastic writer.

Trilogy

I liked this and the first book of the trilogy. I think the second in the series was lacking. Love this narrator.

Excellent series

I’d been into psychological thrillers lately, but wanted something a bit more lighthearted for a change. These books were a good mix of substance and easy listening.

inspiring

This book reminds one to forgive, not forget and how to move on from there. lacey is a very brave young lady but already had to deal with things that most people never go through.

Nice story to end the series.

A few spots were slow but overall it was intriguing. The readers voice was a bit high for my taste but her voice was very clear.

Wonderfully written

This being the last of this trilogy. I feel it was the best of the three. They were each excellent reads, but this one left me with a wonderful feeling of peace. I think the best part of this book was when Lacy meet with Zack. It was very powerful and totally unexpected. Loved these characters through out all 3 books. I would highly recommend all 3!

great ending

I loved the way this book wrapped up all the questions from the previous books. They weren't obvious questions but thoughts about the characters. Book 1 was great I found book 2 not so compelling but this book as good as book 1 and listened at every opportunity.
