Synopsis

It’s been ten years since Payton Thatcher’s twin sister died in an accident, leaving the entire family to cope in whatever ways they could. No longer half of a pair, Payton reinvents herself as a partner in a successful party-planning business and is doing just fine―as long as she manages to hold her memories and her family at arm’s length.

But with her middle sister Jillian’s engagement, Payton’s party-planning skills are called into action. Which means working alongside her opinionated oldest sister, Johanna, who always seems ready for a fight. They can only hope that a wedding might be just the occasion to heal the resentment and jealousy that divides them . . . until a frightening diagnosis threatens Jillian’s plans and her future. As old wounds are reopened and the family faces the possibility of another tragedy, the Thatchers must decide if they will pull together or be driven further apart.

My Thoughts!

After reading the description, I mentally prepared myself for a heart wrenching family drama that was full of emotion. However, about mid way through I felt let down because I realized it just wasn’t coming.  Now, it’s full of emotion and plenty of family drama that many of us can relate to… it’s just not as deep as I thought it’d be. It was a good read and was my first from Vogt. It offered a steady pace and great characters. The storyline was fantastic, I just wish it took me deeper.  I’d definitely give Vogt another shot, but this one just didn’t do it for me.
