Straight Reading from the Library: Sisters in Bloom by Melissa Foster

The Library was provided SISTERS IN BLOOM by Melissa Foster for a review as part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Melissa will be awarding one of three copies of HAVE NO SHAME as Kindle files to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.

"Steamy love scenes, emotionally-charged drama, and a family-driven story, make this the perfect story for any romance reader; especially those who have read Book One, Sisters in Love."
-- Diane Donovan, Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Kaylie Snow has always been the fun, flirty, pretty sister. Now, her burgeoning baby bump, hormone infused emotions, and faltering singing career are sending her into an unexpected identity crisis. Watching her older sister Danica glide through a major career change and a new relationship with the grace of a ballerina, Kaylie’s insecurities rise to the forefront—and her relationship, with fiancé Chaz Crew, is caught in the crossfire.

Chaz Crew has everything he’s ever wanted: a lovely fiancé, a baby on the way, and soon, the film festival he owns will host its biggest event ever. When he’s called away to woo the festival’s largest sponsor—and the lover he’s never admitted to having—secrets from his past turn his new life upside down.

With her baby shower around the corner, and her fiancé’s big event looming, the pressure is on for Kaylie to pull herself together—and for Chaz to right his wrongs. In a few short weeks, the couple who had it all figured out will learn things about life and love that may change their minds—and their hearts.

SISTERS IN BLOOM is a testament to the bond of sisters, the strength of women, and the pains and delights that accompany motherhood. A book for every mother, sister, and daughter, SISTERS IN BLOOM will resonate with readers who love to explore family dramas.


SISTERS IN BLOOM is the second book in Melissa Foster's Sisters series--featuring Kaylie and her sister Danica as they traverse the road of adulthood complete with issues involving love, careers, and family. Even though it's a part of the series, it can easily be read as a stand alone.

The book begins with Kaylie being very pregnant and worried--not only because of her changing body but also because her career is suffering. Her fiance, Chaz, has his hands full dealing with her emotions and, for the most part, does a great job. However, when they first got together and were sharing their pasts with each other, there was one part of his he didn't mention--and it definitely comes back to haunt him during this book.

This book is full of some funny lines, and some episodes that might bring you close to tears, as Kaylie and Chaz try to work out their differences.

In addition to the main characters, the supporting characters are just as important (and just as well drawn) in this book. I'm glad there is another book in this series, because I'm looking forward to catching up with all the characters!
