Dear Fellow Reader,
Could summer be flying by any faster? It seems like it has barely gotten warm and all the back to school ads are up. Granted, it was a late spring and summer didn’t seem like it was ever going to come but still, I am not ready to move into fall quite yet. And I love fall If I hear anything about pumpkins, I might just scream.
So, let’s talk about another beach read. Do you have sisters? Do you have disagreements? Well, that is the heart of the next book.
The McAvoy Sisters Book of Secrets by Molly Fader examines the relationship between two sisters. These sisters chose very different paths and have not been close. Lindy comes home after 17 years to find that in some ways time has stood still and not necessary in a good way. She finds that her mother is not doing well and that her sister, Delia, needs help that she doesn’t want from Lindy.
Delia feels that Lindy abandoned her and her mother and she just wants her to leave again. Even though Delia is drowning in her responsibilities. She could never depend on Lindy. After all, Lindy left once and she will do it again. Delia has a teenage daughter who has gone from a wonderful child to a secretive teen who wants nothing to do with her mother. She also has a newborn. And her mother is not well, and the family business is a lot to run by herself.
Lindy comes back and Delia’s daughter thinks Lindy is great. And Lindy reveals some family secrets, which makes her irresistible. When all the secrets come out, will the sisters bond grow or splinter even more.
I think that the suspense in the book builds well and that you never have one of those moments where you wonder why a character did something and feel that it was not explained. I liked the book. It is a good family story.
I was given a copy of this book in return for my review.
Just don’t talk to me about pumpkins yet.
Thanks for reading!
