Review by Booklist Reviews

A near-fatal car accident might be one of the best things that ever happened to Clare Wilson. During her recuperation, Clare gathers the resolve to divorce her charming but philandering husband, a man she'd married after the tragic death of her original fiance. As Clare heals both physically and emotionally, she gets close to Jankowski, a studly cop 10 years her junior who witnessed Clare's crash. But Sam is too intense too soon, and Clare has been burdened with guilt over the man who has held the key to her heart for 20 years. As Clare sorts out her life, her sisters gather around her, trying to protect her from any more harm. This is as much a novel about the strong bond among sisters as it is a love story. Carr portrays Clare's sisters in depth, adding even more interest to this humorous and poignant tale. Readers who enjoy books by Barbara Freethy and Maureen Child will add Carr to their list of favorites. ((Reviewed May 1, 2006)) Copyright 2006 Booklist Reviews.
