Hi everyone! Today I have a stop on the blog tour for Sisters In Bloom. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.
Sisters In Bloom
The Snow Sisters Series Book Two
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing October 9th, 2013
Kaylie Snow has always been the fun, flirty, pretty sister. Now her burgeoning baby bump, hormone-infused emotions, and faltering singing career are sending her into an unexpected identity crisis. Watching her older sister, Danica, glide through a major career change and a new relationship with the grace of a ballerina, Kaylie’s insecurities rise to the forefront—and her relationship with fiancé Chaz Crew is caught in the crossfire.
Chaz Crew has everything he’s ever wanted: a lovely fiancée, a baby on the way, and soon, the film festival he owns will host its biggest event ever. When he’s called away to woo the festival’s largest sponsor—and the lover he’s never admitted to having—secrets from his past turn his new life upside down.
With her baby shower around the corner and her fiancé’s big event looming, the pressure is on for Kaylie to pull herself together—and for Chaz to right his wrongs. In a few short weeks, the couple who had it all figured out will learn things about life and love that may change their minds—and their hearts.
SISTERS IN BLOOM is a testament to the bond of sisters, the strength of women, and the pains and delights that accompany motherhood. A book for every mother, sister, and daughter, SISTERS IN BLOOM will resonate with readers who love to explore family dramas.
Kaylie is use to her body and her as being the center of attention. Now that she is pregnant and she keeps losing gigs she begins to feel bad. Like usual she doesn't handle stress well and her hormones are on the rage. She falls out with her fiance Chaz over the littlest things. She is so afraid sh will become her like her own mother and she can't take that. Chaz has kept a few secrets from Kaylie that he has been afraid to reveal. Now one big one about a past lover threatens to tear them apart. They both have to learn to trust one another to make it work or let their past tear them apart.
In the first book I thought Kaylie was kinds self centered and while fun to have around she needed to grow up. In this book she changed my mind about herself. She really grew as a person in this book and you get to see different sides of her. You still see the old Kaylie at times but she really is a great person. Chaz who we didn't see a lot of in the first book is a wonderful guy. He makes mistakes like we all do but he is learning to trust people and grow from his mistakes. His timing is just off at times.
I really enjoyed the first book and if anything I think I liked the second one better. You get to see two people waiting for the new life they created learn to work and talk together. You see them slowly become a family and to make peace with their past. I also enjoyed seeing some of the same great characters from the first book and their story continuing. This really isn't a book about two people but their families and friends as well. The ex is a crazy chick and will go to any measures to get what she wants. Believe me you will hate her. I also like how the author threw in a few nice surprises. The ending was very touching. I would recommend not just this book but the first one as well to anyone who wants a great story about family and love and what most of us have been through.
