DANICA SNOW has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life. 

BLAKE CARTER is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best. 

WHEN BLAKE walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

SISTERS IN LOVE is a light, uplifting work of women's fiction/contemporary romance and will resonate with readers who enjoy emotional journeys of the heart with strong heroines and sexy, lovable heroes. Readers of books by Jane Porter and Beth Kendrick will enjoy Danica and Blake's story.


I was so excited to read this book.  I recently read Melissa Foster's book, Have No Shame, and it is now one of my favorite books.  I was hoping that this book would be just as good.  I wasn't disappointed.  It is another good book.  I still love Have No Shame more, but this one still resonated with me.

For some reason, I've read several books lately that remind me of my mother.  This is one of those books.  My mom is a psychologist, similar to Danika.  I was more like Kaylie, Danika's sister.  I've always hated when my mother went into therapist mode with me, but I really wonder how hard it was/is for her.  How do therapist separate themselves?  You know, how do they separate their personal life from their professional life?  It is especially hard when you live in a small community, where you are bound to run into clients all of the time.  I know this happens to my mom all of the time.  Now, I have a better idea of the difficulties she must face.

Probably my favorite excerpt is when Danika is in a therapy session:
You're not here because you're perfect.  You're here because you wanted to deal with something.  We're dredging up those things that may not be what you want to know about yourself.  Think of your mind like a garden.  We're tilling the soil, bringing the buried stuff up to the surface -- the mucky, hard, rotting, forgotten things that have been hidden for probably far too long.  This is the hard part.  Seeing it for what it is.

I've never thought of therapy in this way, but it is so true.  This book will make you think of your life and feelings.  It is not just a work of fiction, it is kind of like a therapy session.  Do you continue doing what is expected of you/what you "should do" or do you go after your dreams and take the more difficult road?

Like Melissa Foster's other book, Have No Shame, this book will have you examining your own life and the motivation of your actions.  This is a wonderful book of fiction with great insights.  I highly recommend Sisters In Love.
