Christine Sheridan is the middle sister of the Sheridan clan: lost between her older sister, Susan, a successful criminal lawyer and her whip-smart little sister, Lola. Over twenty years apart, she and her sisters have just learned the secret that their dead mother has kept from them all these years, of their mother's true fate. Now, Christine returns to New York City, to her boyfriend Frank, to a life she once loved. But the prestige's restaurant they own is no more, and Christine is left once again without solid ground.
At forty-one, unable to have children, and with nowhere to go--she knows only to return home to the Vineyard and her family. Martha's Vineyard is in full summer bloom. After over twenty years away, Christine falls in love again with the water, with boating, the people, and with carefree days that meander and pop with bright conversations with Lola and Susan and long afternoon swims through crystal waters. Unfortunately, her high school rival, the ever-handsome Zach Walters, seems to lurk everywhere she goes--even offering her a pastry chef position at the Sunrise Inn Bistro. Almost reluctantly, she takes it--and soon becomes the most championed pastry chef on the island. Zach doesn't seem so bad, either, although he does seem to harbor his own secrets.
Still, the Sheridan clan is never far from heartbreak. As the Sheridan sisters grow closer, their father loses even more of his memory; their mother's real killer remains on the loose, as does Scott's brother, who stole an obscene amount of money from the Sunrise Cove Inn. Secrets swirl through the family--and drama escalates when Lola's daughter, Audrey, calls with shocking news that sends ripples through the entire Sheridan family.
Every day, the Sheridan sisters find new ways to support, enrage, love, and surprise one another. At forty-one, Christine feels caught between her old life and her new one--poised on the brink of either collapse or the greatest love she's ever known. Will she find happiness on the island?
