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 South 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?

bookreview
The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak is the first book in a riveting new series that had me quickly turning pages and staying up way too late. Maisey Lazarow moves back to Fairham Island following the end of her marriage and hoping to help out her brother, who has problems with depression and a past suicide attempt. This story is simmering with dysfunctional family dynamics that really drive the story and amp up the mystery.

I was drawn in to The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak right from the start and didn’t want to put the book down once I started reading. I felt like I was on a nonstop ride and I had no idea how the story was going to play out. I love when books pull me in with awesome characters and an intriguing story line, and this fit the bill. I really enjoyed The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak, and this will be going on my list of must-buy series.

  1. I may “judge a book by its cover,” but I rely on reviewers, like yourself, to make my decision to purchase and get involved in a book/author. Thanks for your review site!

  2. I never met a Brenda Novak book I didn’t absolutely adore! I’d love a chance to read this. Thanks for the chance. Your review was very good.
