Publisher's Summary

Bess is happy and in love with her new husband Edward, a recent widow. However, when she plans a big celebration for Edward's birthday, this May-December romance goes into a tailspin. She quickly realizes that joining a family isn't going to be as easy as she thought. Especially when it comes to getting along with her step-daughter, Jojo, who can't seem to come to terms with her father's new marriage, all the while battling inner-demons of her own. Jojo relies on her cousin Cari, a fierce career-woman, who isn't unnerved by anything except for facing the man who left her at the alter - the man who Bess invited to the party.

Thanks to laughter, tears and a big surprise, the Brannigans might just discover the secrets of a happy marriage.... But will they find out before it's too late?

Loved it. Cathy Kelly is my favorite author. This is the first time I have had the luxury of listening to one of her books on audible! Ms. Lennon did a brilliant job! I lived in Ireland for a year and a half, in Clontarf, where I believe the author has a home. Her characters seem to come alive right off the pages, and her story line is complex, and interesting. Her books deal with all sorts of challenges for the individual characters, whose lives usually interweave with one another in some capacity. Always a pleasure to read one of Cathy's books, and this one did not disappoint!

I am always sad when her books end. I feel like they are family! Loved Caroline Lennon’s narration.
