Nicely balanced contemporary romance

First in a series, Sisters in Love by Melissa Foster is a complete story on its own, with romance, character development, and small-town drama offered in almost equal portions. Well-crafted conversations with great dialog and pleasant good humor build scene and character and move the story forward. Danica, the sensible sister of the title, is a therapist blind-sided by the artful coincidence of love. But wild, rebellious Kaylie has her hidden depths a well, and while Danica learns to let go, Kaylie just might be preparing to settle down. And, just maybe, sensible and wild are over-simplifications in describing two young women whose paths through life are determined as much by the past as by hopes for the future.

Danica makes a very convincing therapist, with a tendency to analyze herself, her relationships, and her friends at every opportunity. Blake’s a fine hot romantic interest, regretting his player past and hoping for more in the future. Kaylie’s fun. And a great circle of friends bring echoes of favorite Maeve Binchey novels mixed with thoroughly modern American romance.

Author Melissa Foster blends uncompromising reality with honest integrity. Great dialog artfully balances real words and real-world humor with a gentle avoidance of offence. And enticing sensuality remains firmly grounded with relatable distractions. Add a wounded wife, hurting teens, broken marriages, great mountain scenery, and two thoroughly convincing, male and female, points of view, and you’ll have Sisters in Love, and the promise of more to come.

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to receive an eARC of this novel
