Any family knows that a special birthday party is the perfect chance to come together, but for the brannigan clan it’s about more than just raising a glass . . .

Bess is hoping to show everyone just how happy her recent marriage is, but behind all the partyplanning the cracks are beginning to show. Why is joining a family so difficult?

Jojo, bess’s stepdaughter, has a point to make. bess is not her mother, and she won’t replace the one she’s been missing every day for the last two years. And will she ever get the chance to become a mum herself?

Cousin Cari is a fierce career-woman who isn’t unnerved by anything – apart from facing the man who left her at the altar, and he’s on the guestlist. Her job has been a safe place to hide ever since – but is it time to let love into her life again?

Thanks to laughter, tears and one surprise appearance, the brannigans might just discover the secrets of a happy marriage . . . but will they find out before it’s too late?

Cathy kelly is a No. 1 bestselling author. Her trademark is warm Irish storytelling about modern life, always with an uplifting message, sense of community and strong female characters at the heart.
