After several years of happy coupledom, Matt and Evan can relax in the knowledge that their little family has survived the worst of it. The two older girls are away at college, the twins have yet to fully hit teen angst, Matt is doing well with his part-time security consulting, and Evan is about to be promoted to captain—it seems like things are calm and bright.

Until they aren’t.

As the holidays approach, Evan and Matt get a shock no parent is ever prepared for: feisty Miranda, Evan’s eldest, has a new boyfriend, Kent, and they are talking marriage after just three months together. In fact, Miranda wants to bring him to Thanksgiving dinner—along with his parents, Blake and Cornelia.


Lives are in transition as everyone gathers at the stunning Hamptons beach home of Daisy and Bennett to celebrate the christening of their new baby. Griffin and Jim—secretly growing tired of their rootless lifestyle—are in a rocky spot in their relationship. And as the godfather, Griffin finds himself yearning for something he’s sure Jim won’t be interested in.


Matt and Evan are looking to reconnect during the long weekend, as their respective careers pull them in separate directions. With less time spent together, Evan grows concerned about what will happen when the last two kids leave the nest.

Review: This is the second edition for both of these stories. This is part of the Faith, Love, & Devotion series and I would suggest reading book one first. It tells you about what happened in their lives to bring them to where they are now.

In this book, you have two separate stories to enjoy.
I have always loved Tere’s stories. They are what a true life would go through. I quite enjoyed it, although parts of the story make me wonder if they will be together for life. It is the way they still seem to have fears even after years are gone by. Then there is the oldest girl, she makes me want to just smack her upside the head.

It is the time for joy and love, what with the holidays coming up. With many mistakes, what with family and friends they have things to overcome. Evan’s oldest daughter still has trouble with the fact that her mother is dead and is treating Matt like shit for it. She has a boyfriend that she wants to introduce but she has failed to tell her boyfriend and his family about the fact that her dad is with Matt. It, of course, backfires on him, but there are many issues still to deal with.

Blessed ♥♥♥♥4Hearts
They are basically on vacation and are enjoying their friends and having fun. A friend is due to have her baby, another set are trying to figure out what they want in live and what they want to do. Matt and Evan are being pulled apart by their jobs, but somehow have to let it slide by them. They just need to focus on their love and family. Things are changing for them all and they just need to flow with it.

Overall, this is a wonderful book that makes you smile and laugh at parts and at others tear your hair out. The way it was told did leave me with a bit of questions, but in the end it did not turn me from the book.

It gave me almost everything I could want in a story and I would definitely recommend reading it. However start with book one because otherwise their lives and how they got to where they are at now is a bit confusing without it. I had a blast with it and look forward to reading the next book.
