"a compelling story" - Tangle of Strings (Sweeney Sisters #4) by Ashley Farley

"This book is so heartwarming, even as it deals with events that are serious, and with startling consequences. This is a compelling story that will keep you turning pages until you get to the dramatic climax and conclusion. " - Susan, Goodreads


Description:

Published: January 18th, 2017

A nearly tragic accident leads to a discovery that rocks the Sweeney family’s world

Some families never resolve conflicts. Not so with the Sweeneys. Their sense of family, their love for one another, and their willingness to forgive have always triumphed and brought them back together. Until now. The latest crisis threatens to tear the family apart and crumble the foundation that has always proved itself rock solid. 

At the heart of the matter are sixteen-year-old Annie Bethune and her boyfriend, Cooper. At stake are their dreams for the future. As to these dreams, no one in the family holds back when asserting an opinion. 

Annie soon begins to feel like a puppet on strings with all those she loves telling her what to do. When those strings become tangled and a family feud develops, Annie, unable to bear the pressure, runs away. Straight into the arms of danger.

"They are real women faced with everyday challenges, struggling to balance the demands of career and home while remaining true to themselves. Please visit my website for more about the series and stop by my Facebook page. I love hearing from my readers." - author

EXCERPT

“I’m not your baby! You abandoned your baby sixteen years ago.” Shoving Heidi out of the way, Annie jumped into her car and struggled to fasten her seat belt. As she shot off down the driveway, she watched her mother slowly disappear in the rearview mirror. She careened onto Creekside Drive with barely a glance in either direction. Tears blurring her vision, she smacked her palms against the steering wheel. “Ugh! I hate her!” The stoplight ahead turned red and she slammed on her brakes. She removed her cell phone from her bag and thumbed off a quick text to her new best friend: “Heidi ambushed me at home. Why won’t she won’t leave me alone?” She flung the phone onto the floor of the passenger’s side. 

When the light turned green, Annie took a sharp left onto Main Street instead of going straight toward Captain Sweeney’s. She punched the accelerator and sped through the business section of town, oblivious to the pedestrians milling about on the sidewalks and window-shopping despite the crisp February chill. She was driving too fast to react when a Chrysler minivan veered over the line from oncoming traffic.
