Many thanks to Lady Amber’s PR for my spot on this Blog Tour.
I was supposed to be working today, but I snuck off and hid in a cosy corner to read this book. I couldn’t help it, I just couldn’t let go of my kindle. Believe me, I tried. I got multiple calls, but I shut off my phone. JUST TO READ THIS STORY.
This book about sisters and the secrets that could keep them away for 17 years by Molly Fader was everything I hoped for and more. It had an element of mystery and suspense along with the tentative steps that we take against our egos.
Mom Meredith was not well post a stroke and estranged daughter Lindy was called back. The other daughter Delia was barely coping with a newborn daughter and a teenage one, along with shop and husband and the secrets of the past. The whole book revolved around finding their way back to each other. Each of them had lost something precious somewhere in this journey called life. And the author helped them to find their way back. How could I not love this book?!
The subtle foray into the emotions pulled me gently into the lives of the sisters. They were both so different, yet so similar. Their love withstood the tests of time, shouldn’t that the way it should to be? I loved how they pushed and pulled each other to become more than they were. It was obvious that the sisters were close to the author’s hearts, they were etched with love.
The continuous ebb and flow of suspense kept me hooked to this book. Just when I thought the author would reveal it all, I was pulled into a different direction. I was really on tenderhooks the whole time while reading this. And the epilogue was the biggest secret ever revealed. What a book!!
A perfect read on a cozy rainy day. I loved it. I was happy shutting out the world to get into the world of the McAvoy Sisters.
I received a free ARC from Edelweiss and publisher Graydon House, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

MOLLY FADER is the award-winning author of more than forty novels under the pennames Molly O’Keefe and M. O’Keefe. She grew up outside of Chicago and now lives with her family in Toronto. The McAvoy Sisters Book of Secrets is her first women’s fiction novel.
It’s been seventeen years since the tragic summer the McAvoy sisters fell apart. Lindy, the wild one, left home, carved out a new life in the city and never looked back. Delia, the sister who stayed, became a mother herself, raising her daughters and running the family shop in their small Ohio hometown on the shores of Lake Erie.
But now, with their mother’s ailing health and a rebellious teenager to rein in, Delia has no choice but to welcome Lindy home. As the two sisters try to put their family back in order, they finally have the chance to reclaim what’s been lost over the years: for Delia, professional dreams and a happy marriage, and for Lindy, a sense of home and an old flame—and best of all, each other. But when one turbulent night leads to a shocking revelation, the women must face the past they’ve avoided for a decade. And there’s nothing like an old secret to bring the McAvoy women back together and stronger than ever.

Sounds like a perfect mixture of suspense and family drama. Terrific review, Shalini!
Thank you so much Marialyce… I really enjoyed this book
Hi Shalini, I tried to tag you in my blogpost last night which continues the countdown to Apollo 11’s 50th Anniversary. This one focuses on animals in space and there’s a picture of 😍 Charlie!
Wishing you a wonderful day.
Thank you so much… The tag was to my blog URL, I won’t get notification. Tag has to he done to a specific post then the ping back notification occurs
Oh, I didn’t know how that worked. Thanks for letting me know. I wondered about that.
I loved this book as well! Watching the mother in this book was an emotional rollercoaster for me. I thought this book was written so well. I’m so glad you enjoyed it too!
Thank you… I was so happy reading it
Lovely review – this book sounds a delight – I wants!
You gets.. No idea if any other tour would be happening. Maybe TLC would do one
Haha! Sneaking into a cozy corner to read instead of work. You naughty girl! That’s a huge compliment to the author. Thanks for sharing, Shalini! I’ve read some of her books under M. O’Keefe, but none under Molly Fader. I will definitely check this one out. Have a great evening, my friend! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I did not know that. Any recommendations.. This was my first book by her and I loved the byplay of emotions
I love the coziness of the cover with its porch swing. I could happily spend my days there!
Fab review, Shalini- thanks!
I loved the cover too. Thank you so much ❤️
They were under the romance genre (you know me, I love a good romance!), so a bit different than your usual read. The Tycoon stands out as one I liked. I have several others of hers on my kindle that I need to get around to reading too. But I think if you liked one of her books, you’ll probably like the rest. She’s a really good author. 🙂
Thank you ❤️ will check her out
I can’t wait to read this one, Shalini! It sounds so fun. Wonderful review!
This was great. Hope you enjoy it too. Thank you so much ❤️
This is one that I have read many excellent reviews for and really want to read. I love the idea of family members that have drifted apart and something happens to bring them back together. It always gives me the good feels. Wonderful review Shalini and get back to work. 😃📖
Thank you so much ❤️ I loved this book too. I think I love family sagas a lot
