Following the prologue about the killing of her mother, Lacey O'Neil's story continues the saga of Kiss River and the Kiss River Lighthouse. Now 26 and single, Lacey has been trying hard to overcome her past reputation of drinking and promiscuity. She has settled in as a colored glass artist - like her mother Annie. She works in studios in her natal father Tom's shop and in the former Lightkeeper's house she shares with her brother Clay and his wife Gina. She has just learned that her mother's killer is up for parole, and the entire family wants to fight his release.
Suddenly there is a phone call from her best friend Jessica's lawyer from Phoenix; Jessica died, and she named Lacey her 11 year old daughter MacKenzie's guardian and specified that MacKenzie be raised by Lacey. Lacey is flabbergasted, Jessica's friends in Phoenix are puzzled and angry, and Jessica's mother Nola is talking about contesting the will.
People from the past, both known to Lacey and unknown, are certain she cannot handle raising her friend's child, but she determines to do so. Their presence in her life now provides complications as well as the love interest. There are surprises aplenty, as Lacey and MacKenzie come to an accommodation, then develop a friendship. There are two suitors - with different motives - and some surprising revelations toward the book's conclusion.
Typical of Ms. Chamberlain's work, this story flows well. It builds on earlier Kiss River stories and their characters, so you feel like you know the family. Definitely worth reading.

The third book in a series, truly a must read, after the other two. There is not one thing in this book I did not enjoy reading and finding out the mysterious lives of the people. If Big Little Lies could be made into a series, these books deserve the right also, but not just a mini series but many episodes, with the right actors it would be a major tv hit.

Just finished reading all three of the books in this series in a row and truly couldn't put them down. The way the characters interacted from one book to the next was remarkable. A truly talented author.
