Some families are filled with so much love they can't help but drive each other crazy.
Shay Henke has mixed feelings about going to her family's next reunion. On the one hand, she'll get to see everyone in her mama's family--folks she loves unconditionally. On the other hand, she knows there'll be more drama than you can shake a stick at.
The days leading up to the event bring one surprise after another. First Shay must deal with her sister-in-law's deep, dark secret. Then she has to contend with the childish ways of her business-mogul twin cousins. And when her high school crush wants to be her date to the reunions . . . well, it may have been a dream come true for Shay's teen self, but the woman she's become doesn't know what to make of this.
Shay's contentment is challenged, and she's determined to shake things up a bit. But will she find the excitement she's looking for, or will Shay realize she prefers her quiet predictable life? One thing is certain: Life in the Bucklin family is never boring.
My thoughts: I love how this book is set up, with all the different stories going on! Shay was fun to get to know, and I liked that that a lot of the battles the characters went through were different from the norm (which pleasantly surprised me!). I love that the characters all have to work through their personal battles and grow closer as they learn to lean on one another. I could especially relate to the twin sisters, since I was close to my sister growing up, and we went through something similar with learning how to go in different directions while still being close. All in all, this is a great story and I look forward to reading more in the series!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
