Publisher's Summary

The wonderful and heartwarming new novel full of secrets, lies and family ties from Sunday Times best-selling author Cathy Kelly.

Bess is hoping to show everyone just how happy her recent marriage is, but behind all the party planning the cracks are beginning to show. Why is joining a family so difficult?

Jojo, Bess' stepdaughter, has a point to make. Bess is not her mother, and she won't replace the one she's been missing every day for the last two years. And will she ever get the chance to become a mum herself?

Cousin Cari is a fierce career woman who isn't unnerved by anything - apart from facing the man who left her at the altar, and he's on the guest list. Her job has been a safe place to hide ever since - but is it time to let love into her life again? Thanks to laughter, tears and one surprise appearance, the Brannigans might just discover the secrets of a happy marriage...but will they find out before it's too late?

Read by Caroline Lennon.

    "Boring and really disappointing"
    What was most disappointing about Cathy Kelly’s story?

    The story and I think the narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better story


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I totally agree with the previous reviewer. The book was really tedious and disappointing. I usually love her books and was excited when I saw she had a new one out. I have only read two hours and can't continue with it. It was awful and to be honest I couldn't make head nor tail of what was going on at times. I thought it was perhaps the monotonous voice of the reader that made me dislike it so much but the storyline was so dull I've had to give up. What a shame. Let's hope this is just a one off and she's back to her best with the next one.

    "Brilliant."

    Just brilliant. I was unsure because of some of the less positive reviews about it being boring & having too many characters but I loved it, enjoyed the story & didn't find it difficult to follow at all.
