Summary

Kindhearted and loudmouthed Mrs. Feeley, Mrs. Rasmussen, and Miss Tinkham have only just set out on their long-awaited cross-country drive to the West Coast when the trouble begins. It’s bad enough that they wind up in a seedy, truck stop nightclub, but then it’s raided by the police! Thankfully, Chief Connolly can tell they’re decent folks and lets them off easy, but he needs a favor in return. He wants them to take a passenger on their trip; a dangerous passenger they’ll need to outwit before making it home.   Mary Lasswell is firing on all cylinders again in this madcap, slapstick, high-spirited adventure—the fourth to star Mrs. Feeley and friends.

For, out of the blue, her best friend Lily makes a barbed comment about Peter which sets Faith's alarm bells ringing.  Why is he looking so trim and well dressed?  And why is he so jumpy of late?  As Faith's niggling doubts turn to naked suspicion she feels the chill factor kick in, and, as she tries to recapture the sunny days of her past she is forced to admit that, for the time being at least, the outlook is decidely unsettled.  The re-issued fourth novel from the internationally best-selling author of 'A Vintage Affair'.

    From Liane Moriarty, author of #1 New York Times bestsellers The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies, comes an unforgettable novel defined by her signature sharp wit, page-turning storyline, and lovable and eccentric characters. 
    Sophie Honeywell always wondered if Thomas Gordon was the one who got away. He was the perfect boyfriend, but on the day he was going to propose, she broke his heart. A year later he married his travel agent, while Sophie has been mortifyingly single ever since. Now Thomas is back in her life because Sophie has unexpectedly inherited his aunt Connie's house on Scribbly Gum Island—home of the famously unsolved Munro Baby mystery. 
    Sophie moves onto the island and begins a new life as part of an unconventional family, where it seems everyone has a secret. Grace, a beautiful young mother, is feverishly planning a shocking escape from her perfect life. Margie, a frumpy housewife, has made a pact with a stranger, while dreamy Aunt Rose wonders if maybe it's about time she started making her own decisions. 
    As Sophie's life becomes increasingly complicated, she discovers that sometimes you have to stop waiting around—and come up with your own fairy-tale ending.
