From the New York Times bestselling author of Falling comes a novel about the challenges that come from loving a man—and learning to love his mother...
Ellie thinks she's found the perfect man in Dan, who comes fully loaded with the close-knit family she never had. But when their intimate civil wedding ceremony is transformed into a full-fledged black-tie affair, Ellie starts to wonder if Dan's boundary-hating mother, Linda, might be a little too involved.
As troubles between them mount, Ellie turns to her friends—glamorous Lisa and wonderful frazzled Trish—and tries to rediscover the independence she once had, and the man she still loves. But when she discovers the complications of having her own child, Ellie starts to realize that the unconditional, sometimes overwhelming love of a mother is something that can't—and shouldn't—be ignored...
