"If you are looking for a series that keeps you on the edge, wondering what will happen next, wondering how an author created a jaw-dropping, heart-stopping book. Then look no further. Genie has created that with this series." --Bunnies Review

Tallie is the glue that holds the O'Shea family together. Even before Bernie died, Tallie qualified for Mother of the Year every day. Though her eight adopted children are adults, they still return to the traditional Sunday dinner at Tallie's whenever they can. To reconnect with each other, to share events in their lives, and to enjoy Tallie's home cooking. 

Coming November 2012, Tallie will have her own story in CHALLENGING THE LEGACY. Be prepared for some surprises as secrets from her past are revealed.

Welcome to Tallie O'Shea's!

Sunday dinners at Tallie's can bring surprises as well as rowdy games of basketball or volleyball, as a surprise announcement
from Grady's older brother, Patrick, illustrates.

**After dinner, Grady joined Patrick as he walked the O'Shea property, keeping his silence for a time. 

"You have something on your mind, little brother." Patrick looked out over the property they both knew so well from years of childhood exploring. 

"Why did you quit? Being a priest doesn't seem to be just a career, but who you are." 

Patrick continued walking in silence for a few moments, as if gathering his thoughts. "I've had gaps in my memory since seminary, and the haunted feeling something wasn't quite right." 

...Grady lagged behind for a moment, as his thoughts raced. If Patrick could cast off the garments of a priest, could Grady also set aside his police uniform? Bernie and Collin thought Grady could make a good cop. Wanting to please his personal heroes, that's what Grady became. However, sometimes the uniform didn't fit so well. 

Grady strode faster to catch up with Patrick. "What are you going to do now?" 

"Nothing for awhile." 

This answer stunned Grady for a moment. "Is that allowed in the O'Shea family?" 

Patrick laughed again. "Guess I'll find out." 

Grady stood in one place and stared at his brother as Patrick walked on. So maybe Grady didn't have to be a cop. Then the next logical question arose. 

If not a cop, what would he do?
