Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting characters in true Binchy style, but disappointed in how it just ended....with no real conclusion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I chose this as an easy read after a couple of intense thrillers. True to form, Maeve Binchy does not disappoint with interesting characters who each have unexpected lives back in Rathdoon each weekend. An easy read but worth the time.
