Goodreads:  As the older sibling to identical twins Violet and Lily, Cami Porter was always the odd sister out. The divide grew even wider when their parents split up—while the twins stayed in Cape Sanctuary with their free-spirited mother, Rosemary, fourteen-year-old Cami moved to LA with her attorney father. Nearly twenty years later, when Cami gets the terrible news that Lily has drowned saving a child’s life, her mother begs her to return home to help untangle the complicated estate issues her sister left behind.

Navigating their own strained relationship, Cami readjusts to the family and community she hasn’t known for decades, including the neighbor who stands in the way of her late sister’s dream, while Violet grieves the loss of her twin and struggles to figure out who she is now, without her other half, as the little girl Lily saved pulls her back into the orbit of the man she once loved.

Kritters Thoughts:  A set of twins and an older sister survived their parents divorce and being split between their mom and dad and now many many years later two of the three girls are reunited with their mom as the mourn the loss of one and try to fight for their right to stay on the land they have lived on for years.  

While I love a good romance, I love when the romance is a side story to a family drama.  Cami the eldest of the sister trio went to live with their dad when the divorce happened and moved away from her mom and twin sisters and she has all sorts of feelings from that.  Violet is the surviving twin and she has returned to her mom's house with guilt that Lily's death is her fault and she must confront those feelings in order to heal and pass through her grief.  

What I loved most about this book was Violet and Cami and their relationship arc through this book.  I loved that both women had issues from what they thought the other sibling had and the perception of how different their lives were then how they truly were.  

I love RaeAnn Thayne's stand alone books and this one is up there with the other ones that I have loved.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
