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...

About the Author
A former feature writer for the Daily Express in the UK, Green took a leap of faith when she left, in 1996, to freelance and work on a novel. Seven months later, there was a bidding war for her first book, Straight Talking, the saga of a single career girl looking for the right man. The novel was a hit in England, and Green was an overnight success. Most weekends see her cooking for a minimum of twenty people in her home in Westport, Connecticut, where she lives with her husband and their blended family. When she is not writing, cooking, filling her house with friends and looking after their animals, she is usually thanking the Lord for caffeine-filled energy drinks.
