Summary
Some families we're born into

Some we find for ourselves

When Serenity Alston swabbed her cheek for 23andMe, she joked about uncovering some dark ancestral scandal. The last thing she expected was to discover two half sisters she didn't know existed. Suddenly, everything about her loving family is drawn into question. And meeting these newfound sisters might be the only way to get answers.

The women decide to dig into the mystery together at Serenity's family cabin in Lake Tahoe. With Reagan navigating romantic politics at work and Lorelei staring down the collapse of her marriage, all three women are converging at a crossroads in their lives. Before the summer is over, they'll have to confront the past and determine how to move forward when everything they previously thought to be true was a lie. But any future is easier to face with family by your side.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "An ancestry test brings together three half-sisters to make connections with one another despite their differences. Investigative reporter Serenity had a perfect childhood in Northern California with devoted parents, but digging into the truth about her sisters could upend everything. Reagan is a New York executive who was raised by a high-powered single mother but has recently made a mistake that could derail her career and life. Lorelei grew up in foster care and is trying to be the perfect wife and mother to forget her troubled past, but her philandering husband has shattered her careful effort. The three women and Lorelei's young daughter spend an idyllic summer on Lake Tahoe. Prolific romance author Novak writes a sentimental novel about trust, family, and making amends. Though some plot twists and romantic interludes veer toward the soapy, the sisterly affection at the heart of this novel will make it resonate."
