An emotional, heartwarming story from New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand about a grieving family that finds solace where they least expect it. Celebrity chef Deacon Rowe is struggling with addiction, depression and not one, but two scandals. As summer nears, he travels to the idyllic Eastern bluff of Nantucket, where he takes his own life. In the shocking wake of Deacon's suicide, his first wife and childhood sweetheart, Laurel Rowe, sets out to gather Deacon's far-flung family--including Deacon and Laurel's son, and Deacon's other ex-wives and children--on the island. HERE'S TO US brings together three very different, resilient women and their children, who start out not only as strangers, but as bitter rivals, each wanting to claim the prime place in Deacon's life. Secrets are revealed, confidences are shared, and improbable bonds are formed as this unlikely family says goodbye to the man they loved.

Soo...the description is wrong, there was no Suicide...which you find out in the first 5 min of the story. Whoever wrote the description got it vastly wrong, which meant I was waiting for Suicide for the first 3rd of the book...who cares. I LOVED this book. It's the right amount of gritty depth to keep you interested, but not so much it makes you sick or uncomfortable.
Sex, love, drugs, cheating, deceit, and obligation...this book has a bit of everything, and the story flows really well! Laurel is my Hero.

When Deacon Thorpe, a celebrity chef, suddenly dies at his Nantucket home, his widow and two ex-wives find themselves together on the island to spread his ashes at sea. As the novel describes the events of the sad, tensioned-filled weekend, the author intersperses the back stories of Deacon's marriages with Laurel, Belinda, and Scarlett. As accusations fly and secrets are revealed, the author explores the themes of love, success, betrayal, and loss. All that glitters is not gold in this absorbing family saga.
