My first experience with a Rosalind Noonan, but as they came highly recommended from my mom, I would have to agree with her that this won't be my last Rosalind Noonan read.

As luck would have it, I was asked to host this book for a book tour and what a great read. I am now in a relationship with a police officer, so this book hit way close to home, but this new living situation, may have helped me love it even more. The story centers around the youngest daughter of a retired police officer who spent 50 years serving the city of New York and lived through many things including 9/11. Along with this main story is another story that centers around a young man who has some physical disabilities and is just getting out of prison, the way these stories intertwine is entertaining and heartbreaking.

I thought I knew where this book was headed and was ready for it to end one way, but the story went a completely different direction and I loved every minute of it. The surprises were enjoyable and came from out of the blue. I would recommend this book to those who like women's fiction with a little more depth to them.
