Goodreads: The author of The Union Street Bakery presents a new novel about a woman searching for a fresh start—while unable to forget the past…
Adele “Addie” Morgan grew up in a house filled with pain and loss. Determined to live life on her own terms, Addie moves to the country and finds a job at a vineyard where she discovers stability, happiness, and—best of all—love with the kind owner, Scott.
But an unexpected call abruptly pulls Addie out of her new and improved life. Her sister has just given birth and Addie’s Aunt Grace wants her to return home to help the family—even if it means confronting things she’s tried so hard to forget.
When Addie arrives, she quickly realizes that she hasn’t truly let go of her former life, at least not completely. After making a surprising connection with her sister’s baby—and her sister’s ex-husband, Zeb—Addie must choose between her picture-perfect future with Scott and the family roots she thought she’d left behind for good…
Ope’s Opinion: This is the third in a series set in Old Town Alexandria, VA. Since my daughter lives there the setting has a lot of meaning for me and makes me like the books more.
I like the family drama that Taylor writes so well. The relationships feel real and the characters become like family. The overall subject was a little on the sad side. Mental illness effects the whole family and this story brought that to light.
There is one more in the series that is sitting on shelf and will be read really soon!
Rating: 4 – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
