Description of this Book

Hannah, the younger of the two Taylor sisters, was an honour roll student with big dreams - and an even bigger work ethic that landed her a coveted publishing job in New York City. Nicole, her older sister, was always restless.and more than a little reckless. She moved from job to job, and man to man, eventually marrying Graham McIntosh, a promising young attorney, and giving birth to their son, Ian. For a while, it seemed like both sisters had found happiness. Now, more than fifteen years have passed, and things have changed: Hannah is married to Graham, and stepmother to Ian. But when Graham is murdered by a masked intruder at the couple's beach house, Hannah has no choice but to welcome her estranged sister, Nicole - Ian's biological mother - back into her life. When the police begin to treat Ian as a suspect, the two sisters must set aside old resentments and confront the truth behind family secrets in order to help him.
