Meghan Blaney comes from a long line of self-sufficient, gritty Maine lobstermen. She knows a thing or two about hard work, loyalty, and sacrifice. When she put off going to culinary school so she could take care of her aging father, she never expected to be schlepping pancakes at a local diner a decade later. Nor did she plan to be living in an old house that was too small for her partner, Lauren, and her cantankerous father. Meghan's life becomes even more complicated when she agrees to let her ex-con brother, Scott, stay with them. He unwittingly brings the sordid underbelly of the fishing industry and one troublesome gun into their lives. Meghan quickly learns the hard way, despite everyone's best intentions, having a gun comes with its own unintended blowback.

Bev Prescott always deliver a good read but this one took me into the most unexpected journey. Guns ownership is a big topic in America, it is also: always hot, controversial, and as a non american watcher an unresolved one. I liked a lot this book because I couldn’t relate so much with news or info that come my way trough the media…but this book have made me connect like ever before to it. Impressive!
