About the book:
Orphaned in Iowa, Annie Kennedy moves to Boston to stay with her spinster aunt. She longs for romance to fill the void left by her parents' death. But when she falls hard for Steven O'Connor, the man who broke an engagement to her sister, Annie is worried. Will he break her heart too when he discovers who she really is?
A hardened prohibition officer nursing a broken heart, the last thing Steven O'Connor wants to do is fall in love with a young spitfire who has a tendency to get herself into trouble. Orphaned and living with her spinster Aunt, Annie has secrets and doesn't plan on falling in love with Steven O'Connor, even as he rescues her from yet another misadventure.
While not my most favorite book about the O'Connor family, I loved reading Steven's story. I thought he didn't treat Annie well at first, but as the two of them make their way through muddled family secrets and history, they discover the importance of love, honesty, faith and God.
All of the O'Connors make an appearance here and it's fun seeing how Faith, Charity and Lizzie's families have grown since the Daughters of Boston series. Katie's still a spitfire keeping Luke on his toes and Emma and Sean are strong. Patrick and Marcy oversee their brood with love and understanding. Gabriella's story also receives some closure which is lovely.
Third in the Winds of Change series, this is also the last book about the O'Connor family of Boston. While this is my least favorite of the series, I have loved all six books about this wonderful family. My recommendation is to read all six books, in chronological order, to gain the fullest understanding of the O'Connors and their history.
