Who says you can't choose your family?
Their shared sweet sixteen party is just around the corner, and half sisters Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are ready to cut loose, even if they are the daughters of a prominent public figure. So when Izzie's estranged aunt, Zoe, breezes into town unannounced, it just might be the change that the Monroe family needs--or not, depending on who you ask...
Happy with her cute surfer boyfriend and a group of great girlfriends, Izzie has no interest in getting to know yet another long-lost family member. But Mira, who's on a mission to try new things and meet new people--a handsome brooding painter in particular--is drawn to Izzie's artsy aunt, who seems to the be the polar opposite of the uptight Monroe family.
As the girls try to negotiate the unexpected paths their lives have taken, Zoe's laid-back attitude eventually charms them both. But when Zoe offers Izzie the chance to leave Emerald Cove and start fresh in California, Izzie and Mira are faced with bigger changes than they expected.
Jen Calonita is a former magazine editor who has interviewed everyone from Justin Timberlake to Reese Witherspoon. She lives in New York with her husband, Mike; sons, Dylan and Tyler; and their Chihuahua, Captain Jack Sparrow. She invites you to visit her online at

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Length of the Trilogy. I never thought that this chick-lit series would end as a trilogy. But, hey, that's not a problem, this series had the perfect length and ending, just what any good chick-lit trilogy would have. Izzie has definitely grown out of her shell in this one, like completely. She's finally close with Mira and her father, and really, everything was basically going as planned in the book. Not too much drama, this was a light novel of Jen Calonita's, which I felt was time for, because this trilogy had too much drama.  I can't wait for more from the fantastic author, she always leaves me wanting more!
