Members of the Sweeney family, young and old, chart their courses for the future in this final installment of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters Series.
When the seafood business Lovie Sweeney established sixty years ago is destroyed by fire, she finds herself at the center of an arson investigation. What really happened that night? Is Lovie responsible for starting the fire or is her family under attack from a sworn enemy?
The loss of their family business leaves the Sweeney clan in flux. Samantha faces the challenges of rebuilding the market while her son, Jamie, on track to graduate from college in six months, must decide whether to make his permanent home in Prospect or move to Charleston where a new special someone resides. At age forty-five, Faith, who has never fully recovered from an abusive marriage, is on a quest to find her true passion? Jackie is distraught when her son, Sean, flunks out of college and struggles to find direction in his life without his twin brother to guide him. A medical diagnosis brings the sisters closer together and threatens to change family dynamics forever.
The Sweeney women remind us that it's never too late to begin a new endeavor and to never stop chasing your dreams until you draw your last breath.

If you have not picked up the Sweeney sisters series, you really must...as soon as possible. You will fall in love with this family, just like I did. The three Sweeney sisters are not perfect, by any means. As a matter of fact, they all have had their share of troubles and hardships but because they have family and good friends, they make it through the tough times. Saturdays at Sweeney's get off to an intense start with a fire at the family business—a business that has been thriving for several generations and is the glue that holds the family together. Now with it gone, what's going to happen to the Sweeneys? And then there's the question of how the fire started? Was it arson? And is a Sweeney guilty of starting it? As the family works on regrouping, the matriarch of the family is failing and the family receives some devastating news. How much more can this family handle? This is an amazing series that captured me from the start, full of memorable characters that I came to think of as friends. I'm sad that this is the last book in the series but I am hoping that some of the characters have a strong enough voice that the author will take us back for a visit.
