    Everyone is coming home for Christmas.  It's a good thing they have a big house!

    Berkley and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 7th.

    Kyra was hoping for a nice, peaceful Christmas before she has to move out and let the new tenant move in.  The problem is that she has to make a decision very soon over whether she will let her son act in a movie with his father.  She's not sure she wants to do that and she knows it will cause trouble if she doesn't.

    She's trying to act happy but everyone knows she isn't.  More secrets are shared on the back deck in the evenings as they have a drink at the end of the day.  The women say they will support her.  It hurts when the woman he lives with calls and threatens to hurt her family and friends if she doesn't decide in favor.  She doesn't react well to bullying.  Then she finds out her girlfriend that was her only friend after her affair was made public has already had a phone call from her saying she might lose her job.  Those with power like to use it for their advantage.

    This is a novella and Kyra struggles through the Christmas activities still dithering over the decision.  Her mother says to do what is best for her child.  She finally decides by the end of the story.

    There will be more in this series.  Kyra's story isn't over yet.
