Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.

ABSOLUTELY UNPUTDOWNABLE. Warm and emotional. I loved it completely from beginning to end.

A story about estranged sisters that captured my heart from the first page, from their promise then their resentment to a new bond. The author Cecilia Lyra’s writing was like a gentle breeze at the beginning of spring, each word bringing a wealth of emotions and leaving happiness in its wake.

Two sisters from different mothers, best friends in childhood, yet strangers as adults were brought together by their grandmother’s will for a glorious summer. Resentments, ugly memories all had to be dealt with before they could find their way to each other’s heart. Then something happened…

My first book by this author was a glorious read. I needed a distraction to root my brain, and this provided me with the best anchor. The curiousity to know what happened to these women over the years caused me to completely submerge myself into the depth of the feelings. The words pulled at my heartstrings one oafe at a time.

The sisters were etched carefully, by the author. Her broad strokes made them appear different; and her gentle ones, similar. There was something hypnotic about this story that caught me completely.

Brilliant writing, lovable characters, real situations, the book was everything I needed and more. A fantastic breakfast read.

I received a ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Two sisters. A surprising inheritance. A summer that changes everything.

As children, half-sisters Cassie and Julie were nearly inseparable, bonded through happy, lazy summers playing barefoot in the surf and sleeping out on the porch of their grandmother’s Hamptons beach house. Though from wildly different backgrounds, each magical summer the girls were as close as only best friends, accomplices, sisters can be. But they haven’t spoken in nearly fifteen years—not since the funeral of Cassie’s mother—and now there is only resentment and painful memories between them.

Successful and self-contained, Cassie is shocked to learn the requirements of their nana’s will—that she and Julie spend one final summer together in the Hamptons house in order to inherit. Cassie agrees reluctantly, she needs an excuse to leave Boston and give the growing rumors about her personal life a chance to die down.

And for Julie, who is discovering too late the cracks in her marriage, it is the chance to repair at least one damaged relationship. But for the two sisters to regain what they had, they will have to finally confront what happened the night Cassie lost her mother. With their Nana’s wisdom guiding the way, could this summer bring painful discoveries, and a new direction, for both sisters?

  1. Wow, amazing review Shalini. I love stories about siblings, especially when they are estranged and get back together. I have not read anything by this author either, but I think I will remedy that. This sounds very good, especially if it is unputdownable.

    1. Another fanatic author. I too didn’t expect I would love the book so much. But the first chapter itself pulled me in
