Publisher's Summary

When she’s passed over for the role of a lifetime, Hollywood actress Gwendolyn Carter is absolutely crushed. That’s when things go from bad to worse. Home to celebrate her dad’s birthday, Gwen discovers her mom is sick and might not have much time left. She stays to help and to repair the emotional rift that has kept them apart for so long. That’s easier said than done, though, because oh-so-perfect Lila Machowicz has all but replaced Gwen as Carol Carter's surrogate daughter.

Gwen and Lila are forced to work together to support the woman they both care about, even though they’re rivals for a place in Carol’s life. The last thing either expects is an attraction as undeniable as it is inconvenient. When Lila helps Gwen rebuild trust with her mom, Gwen’s heart begins to thaw. But every family has a closet full of skeletons, and when she discovers the family secret, will she ever be able to trust Lila again?

Dysfunctional

This is an incredibly dysfunctional family and I don’t feel like anyone ends up better at the end to be honest. Everyone is lying to Gwen all the time about everything and for some reason Gwen is the one who needs to get over herself and do all the changing? That’s SUPER messed up. Gwen’s mom is really manipulative and has a history of verbal abuse that Gwen rightfully runs away from, but then she’s blamed for staying away so long instead of coming back sooner to make things right. Then when Gwen is stepping up and making all the effort to forgive her dying mother, the family just keeps piling on. I feel really bad for Gwen and how everyone calls her selfish when she’s the only honest one and she is only standing up for herself. That’s not selfish, that’s just basic self-care. No one in Gwen’s life deserves forgiveness and the lesson this book teaches is that they should be forgiven anyway. So if you’re into stories where the main character has to be the bigger person without anyone else owning up to their own mistakes and instead blaming someone else for simply being absent, you will like it.

Memories

I thought this was an excellent book, well written, the story line was bringing up good memories of my mother who passed 13 years ago. In a way the reconciliation of the MC with her mother and her friend made me feel good.
i liked the narration.
