That’s My Sister by Roxanne Rhaman
Having a younger, beautiful sister is hard enough. Having one who’s on the cover of magazines and is loved by all? Torture. For single mom Marie Stephens, all she wants is to survive her new business, provide for her children, and ignore the intense feelings she has for her married neighbor. When her famous sister, Sadie, shows up after a five-year absence, Marie’s normal life ceases to exist. Add in their celebrity-obsessed mother, it’s no wonder they can’t get along. The most important thing Sadie and Marie will learn? Accepting your sister can change your life.
That’s My Sister by Roxanne Rhaman is an entertaining, well written contemporary romantic comedy, full of funny one-liners and charming, relatable characters you’ll love.
This is a book about family and relationships, especially sisters, but also mothers and daughters. I loved the light humour throughout the book and smiled so many times while reading this engaging story. Marie has been a single parent, to two adorable daughters for five years when she realizes she needs to make changes in her life. One of those changes is moving states and going to live with her mother in Arizona. The other is opening a book store. Two huge moves and only time will tell if they were the right ones to make. Trying to get to grips with her mother’s continual belittling comments, Marie is distracted by the handsome neighbour Jeffrey, which results in a very charming romance.
When Vivian (her vivacious mother) takes a real interest in her granddaughters, Marie begins to think moving here might have been the best thing after all, but just as the cold relationship between mother and daughter begins to thaw and Marie starts to feel settled, a grenade is thrown into the peaceful household when her sister Sadie turns up. Beautiful, rich and famous, Sadie appears to be everything a superstar is, but why has she come home? The pain of rejection sits in Marie’s heart and every effort that Sadie makes to restore their relationship is batted away with brittle comments. What does Sadie want? Will she find a way back into her sister’s affection? Can old wounds be healed by forgiveness and love?
Roxanne Rhaman has crafted a lovely tale of family that was a pure joy to read, relaxing entertainment at its best. Her remarkable story telling ability and character development is spot on helping me to totally connect, especially with Marie. This sweet romance That’s My Sister by Roxanne Rhaman comes recommended by Chick Lit Café. ~Book review by T N Traynor for Chick Lit Café.
