    All of my reviews can be found on www.novelgossip.com The inspiration behind this novel fascinated me, so I thought I would share the preface of the book before my thoughts. Everyone is familiar with the adage ?write what you know?; it?s a saying that has dictated much of ...

    Favorite Quotes: Cara watched Joe take a bite of his burger and was tempted to whisper, ?Moo,? but thought maybe she?d pulled that chain enough for one day. I bought champagne to celebrate you. He doesn?t matter. You matter? We matter. We deserve a chance, and this is ...

    I really enjoyed this book - it was charming, heartwarming, and I wish I would have read it back when my own father passed away. "She'd tell Cara there would still be love and happiness and joy to be found. That it might not look like the love and joy she used to know, but it would...

    I mostly really liked this, though some of the rah rah small towns and rah rah family forever stuff was not my favorite. And I struggle with actually calling this a romance, though I'm not actually sure what I would call it. A couple of dates doesn't feel like the resolution of a roman...

    There really wasn't anything "new" and original about these sisters and their story. I've read a variation of this a hundred times before. I think Nora Roberts was first to write about siblings unknown to each other and that trope has gone "gangbusters" from that moment. I liked all t...
