From the Author

Dear Readers,
.
If you are a fan of my other genre work (thriller, suspense, historical), you will find SISTERS IN LOVE to be very different. This is a light-hearted, fun, uplifting contemporary romance, inclusive of a few intimate love scenes. 
.
When I first began writing Danica's and Kaylie's story, I felt like I'd met a group of new friends, and I knew that they were too special to let go after just one book. In book three of the Snow Sisters you will begin to meet the Bradens, a family of six hot, wealthy, and lovable siblings. The Bradens will be joining the Snow sisters in this light, fun, and sexy series--Love in Bloom--and I hope you fall in love with Danica, Blake, Kaylie, Chaz, the Braden siblings, and all of their friends, just as I have. 
.
If you enjoy the Love in Bloom series, you may enjoy my new series, Harborside Nights.
.
HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real New Adult Romance series that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as "summer" friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They're tough, edgy, and accepting--most of the time. Although the first book, CATCHING CASSIDY, is a heterosexual romance, this series will include heterosexual, gay, and lesbian themes, written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars September 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Melissa Foster's Sisters in Love is a journey of self discovery for the three main characters, Danica Snow, her sister Kaylie and Blake Carter. While there is a romantic element to the novel, it is more of a secondary story arc.

In the beginning of Sisters in Love, I was not sure if I was going to like any of the primary characters. Danica comes across as judgmental and her assessments of her sister and Blake are honest but a little harsh. Kaylie comes across as immature and rather flaky. My first impressions of Blake were mixed and I liked him the most.

Luckily, about a quarter of the way into the novel, I began to reassess my opinions. As more of the characters' back stories were revealed, I had a better understanding of their thought processes, actions and reactions to certain situations.

Blake's story gave me a different viewpoint of his attitude towards women and his inability to commit to a relationship. Of the three, Blake is the most introspective and self-aware. His efforts to change are very sincere and while he sometimes briefly falls back into old habits, his transformation begins immediately. Blake is a stand up guy who wants to do the right thing and despite his discomfort and inexperience, he provides a tremendous amount of emotional support for his deceased friend's family.

I was really on the fence about Danica for most of the novel. I sympathized with her feelings of being cast as the "smart, responsible" one by her family. However I had a difficult time understanding how a therapist (and twenty-nine year old woman) could not figure out how to take charge of her own life. Her reflections about sister Kaylie are hypercritical and her disapproval of Kaylie's lifestyle is quite apparent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! September 4, 2013
Format:Paperback
This is exactly the fun kind of quick read I was in the mood for. Not too overly complicated of a story but not too super predictable either. Just perfect! I love this group of characters already and can't wait to read the next book in the series. Thanks Melissa for always surprising me with a new kind of book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great romance for this autumn! August 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was sent an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

I have enjoyed reading this book which is definitely women's fiction without being cheesy chick-lit. Danica Snow is a strong and independent woman who knows what she wants in life. Or does she? When she meets the local playboy Blake Carter, her world will suffer a radical change and she won't be sure about anything any longer. Can she trust him? Can she change enough as to have a relationship? Lots of things to consider and lots of things to change. Danica will struggle with her feelings, while at the same time struggling for being the support that her Little Sister and her biological sister need.

On the other hand, Blake's world is going to suffer a dramatic change too, a change that will make him reconsider a complete change of his attitude towards women. Is he in love? Can he go through Danica's barriers and find a place in her heart? The path won't be easy because he will have to deal at the same time with secrets from a friend and trying to support his friend's family. Things are not like he thought they were, and he will learn that reality can be deceptive. Will all that have an influence over his possible change in attitude?

This book is very well written, and even though it was a bit predictable, there were some plot twists that I couldn't see coming. I love that in a book. I love the surprise, the moment that makes me gasp or exclaim, "What the heck?!" This book has those moments, so they added to the pleasure of reading about the Snow Sisters, self-contained Danica and promiscuous Kaylie. In a way, they reminded me Elinor and Marianne, from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, since they show with their behaviour two sides of the human nature: rational Danica vs.

By Yvonne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After the first couple of pages, I threw down this book and said, "What a piece of trash." A strange woman follows the town Casanova into the men's room and starts licking his chest? P-U-H-L-E-Z-E!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Slutty Sex February 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't even finish this book. Sex scenes started in chapter 3--and it had no redeeming value. Fine for fans of explicit sex scenes, I guess--but not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book!! September 8, 2013
Format:Paperback
I was so excited to read this book. I recently read Melissa Foster's book, Have No Shame, and it is now one of my favorite books. I was hoping that this book would be just as good. I wasn't disappointed. It is another good book. I still love Have No Shame more, but this one still resonated with me.

For some reason, I've read several books lately that remind me of my mother. This is one of those books. My mom is a psychologist, similar to Danika. I was more like Kaylie, Danika's sister. I've always hated when my mother went into therapist mode with me, but I really wonder how hard it was/is for her. How do therapist separate themselves? You know, how do they separate their personal life from their professional life? It is especially hard when you live in a small community, where you are bound to run into clients all of the time. I know this happens to my mom all of the time. Now, I have a better idea of the difficulties she must face.

Probably my favorite excerpt is when Danika is in a therapy session:

"You're not here because you're perfect. You're here because you wanted to deal with something. We're dredging up those things that may not be what you want to know about yourself. Think of your mind like a garden. We're tilling the soil, bringing the buried stuff up to the surface -- the mucky, hard, rotting, forgotten things that have been hidden for probably far too long. This is the hard part. Seeing it for what it is."

I've never thought of therapy in this way, but it is so true. This book will make you think of your life and feelings. It is not just a work of fiction, it is kind of like a therapy session.
