But when her family needs her back in Ireland at short notice, Romy's world is turned upside down, and she is thrust back into the lives of her mother and half-siblings again. Romy has never fitted in with her family and now with Keith too far away to give comfort, she feels like more of an outsider than ever.

Sheila O'Flanagan

From a bestselling brand author comes a captivating novel about family ties, romance and leaving the past behindTwo very different sisters, Mia (still in love with Alejo, the married father of her daughter) and Britt (the ice maiden, who has ironically written a romantic bestseller), join a luxury honeymoon cruise in the Caribbean where Britt is the guest lecturer. Also on board are recently widowed Leo, still reeling from the discovery of his wife's betrayal just before her death, and Steve, a ship's officer who's soon looking for more than a holiday romance with Mia. Can Steve replace Alejo and is there any chance that Britt and Leo can see that they really should get together? When the characters head for home - Mia to Spain, the others to Dublin - it seems that all romantic options are off, especially as Leo rashly got engaged to glamorous, man-eating Pippin while at sea. But love has a way of triumphing in Sheila O'Flanagan's novels, even if it takes till the very last page...
