After her divorce and the loss of her child Maisey Lazarow returns home to the small island of Fairham in hopes of helping her brother who has had some problems of his own. However, Maisey has not been looking forward to the reunion with her controlling mother after all the years that had passed.
Instead of staying in the family home Maisey moves into a cottage but finds herself living next to Rafe Romero who has been contracted to fix up the cottages. Maisey has a history with Rafe and finds herself still attracted to him but too broken to risk her heart. When Rafe finds a box of old photos Maisey finds herself in the middle of a mystery and trying to uncover old family secrets.
The Secret Sister was another nice read from Brenda Novak that crosses over from just a romance read into a mystery/thriller plus a lot of family drama all wrapped in one. It was easy to get interested in Maisey’s story rather quickly and really enjoyed the book.
Maisey’s family in the story are the rich as in owning most of the island but have all of the secrets to go along with type. Most would expect that with being rich and comfortable would bring for an easy life but there’s always things that go on that bring for one dysfunctional group.
Overall, with lots of twists and turns along the way this romantic suspense had me engaged the entire read.
I won this book from Goodreads First Reads.
