The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak

Trade paperback, 400 pages

Published by Mira, July 28, 2015



Did she once have a sister? Has her mother lied all these years? Why?



After a painful divorce, Maisey Lazarow returns to Fairham, the small island off the North Carolina coast where she grew up. She goes there to heal—and to help her brother, Keith, a deeply troubled man who's asked her to come home. But she refuses to stay in the family house. The last person she wants to see is the wealthy, controlling mother she escaped years ago.



Instead, she finds herself living next door to someone else she'd prefer to avoid—Rafe Romero, the wild, reckless boy to whom she lost her virginity at sixteen. He's back on the island, and to her surprise, he's raising a young daughter alone. Maisey's still attracted to him, but her heart's too broken to risk…



Then something even more disturbing happens. She discovers a box of photographs that evoke distant memories of a little girl, a child Keith remembers, too. Maisey believes the girl must've been their sister, but their mother claims there was no sister.

Maisey's convinced that child existed. So where is she now?

 
 
What I Thought:
Well, I thought this was going to be an okay book, but I was a little turned off when the two main characters jumped in bed on day two after having seen each other since High School.  Other than the intimacy, this book was good.  It had a good storyline, a lot of suspense and it kept my attention and kept me wondering.  I liked the family dynamics and how dysfunctional this family was a first.  All in all this was a good book, I could have done without the romantic scenes though.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.

  2. Thanks for warning me about the gratuitous sex---I'll just skip those "scenes" when I read the book.
