Books Read: Melissa Foster - Sisters in Love (Snow Sisters, Book One; Love in Bloom Series)

Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister.   As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.

Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best.

When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

SISTERS IN LOVE is a light, uplifting work of women's fiction and will resonate with readers 

who enjoy emotional journeys of the heart with strong heroines and sexy, lovable heroes. Readers of books by Jane Porter and Beth Kendrick will enjoy Danica and Blake's story.

Earlier this summer I reviewed Melissa Foster's Have No Shame which I enjoyed reading so when I saw she was doing another blog tour for her latest book, Sisters in Love, I decided to take part especially as I enjoy reading book series and this book is the first in the Love in Bloom series.

Danica Snow has always been the smart sister who was encouraged to make the most of her brain whereas her younger sister Kaylie is flighty and does what she wants when she wants, so it's no surprise that she's become a successful psychologist who also mentors a young teenager Michelle as part of a 'Big Sister' program.  The other main character in the book is Blake Carter who is the ultimate playboy who is definitely not ready to settle down.

I was sort of expecting this to be girl meets guy and falls in love which would have been OK as I love a good slushy romance story but there is so much more to this book than that as it also deals with some sensitive topics as well as including some comedic moments.  One of the funniest was the initial 'meeting' of Danica and Blake in a busy coffee shop which I could picture happening as if I was there.

Having now read two completely different style of books from Melissa Foster, both of which I enjoyed, I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for further books from her including the rest of the books in the Love in Bloom series.  More information about the series can be found on Melissa's website here.
