Abby O'Brien Winters is very successful on Wall Street, is a great mother, but not such a good
wife. Life in the fast lane usually takes its toll after a while and, for Abby, it seemed to happen
before she realized it. As her marriage is coming to an end, her youngest sister, Jess, calls her
frantically asking for her help. Of course, this call couldn't have come at a worse time for Abby.
Work is demanding, her twin daughters are in school and need to spend more time with their mother,
and her ex-husband wants to make sure the girls' visitation schedule remains as unchanged as
Being the oldest O'Brien child, it seemed that Abby was the one to always make sure that the other
kids were taken care of. Their mom walked out on the family and her marriage, promising to come back
for them when she was settled. One thing lead to another and that never happened. The only one who
everyone could count on was Abby.
Trace Riley, Abby's high school sweetheart and best friend, was also called to come back home to
assist his father in running the family banking business. Trace is not a banker, never wanted to be
a banker, and will never be a banker, but for his dad's sake he has come home on a six-month trial
basis: his sister, Laila, was the right girl for the job.
Jess O'Brien always loved the Inn at Eagle Point and, from the time she could remember, she wanted
to own and run this bed and breakfast. Problem is, Jess does not have a head for business or numbers.
She is always buying on the spur of the moment and forgets that bills have to be paid and mortgages
have terms and conditions. She got herself into a real bind and the only person she could call to
help was Abby.
This is a wonderfully written book with a lot of those good things that you look for. It tells
the story from beginning to end. How will Abby help Jess make the Inn a success? Will Abby and
Trace get back together? Will the O'Brien family finally become a family again? I liked this book
and I am looking forward to the next one!
