The Sometimes Sisters Reviews
I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH
Omg Carolyn. For some reason I knew this book would become my favorite! Lord what a story. My heart hurts but is happy for the girls. It's a shame that our world can be so cruel but in the end love prevails. Trying not to say to much but it's hard not to. Happy reading and can't wait for the next book!
I enjoyed reading this story about family reconciliation. Three sisters return to Texas to attend their Grandmother's funeral. In order to keep their inheritance they must all stay and run the lakeside fishing camp and learn to work together along with their "uncle" Zed. Annie’s Place consists of twelve cabins, a small house, a café, a convenience store, and a lot of family memories. All three of the sisters have secrets to hide and are surprised to discover that Grandma had her fair share of se ...more
Carolyn Brown is a consummate weaver of tales. This is no exception. Not only are we treated to the sister's journey to love and family, we are given the gift of the romance between Grannie Annie and Zed in flashbacks and his conversations with her spirit.
Dana, the eldest, born out of wedlock believes her sisters have a better life.
Harper and Tawny live a life of hell with their distinctly non-maternal mother, and even though their father lived with them until his death, he would not cross her ...more
I really enjoyed my first book by Carolyn Brown! I love reading about sisters and this was no exception. It’s a story about forgiveness and love and loss. Highly recommend

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~
This is a beautiful book, which has many layers, and is deeply emotional - i.e. expect to need tissues. Even though the reason is clearly signposted, it makes it no easier to bear and big ugly tears were inevitable - for me at least!
It was a really clever way of giving us many stories in one and especially that of Annie and Zed. There were lovely little hints, such as the lack of a perfume smell in the room Dana takes o ...more
Such a great book! Each story was linked, but held its own. I felt that this family had so much heartache and pain, but came through the story strong and healthy on the other side. This author is extremely good at building complete and complex stories that will have you tearing up for happy reasons right along with the sad. I loved this book. The characters were well written, the storyline was smoothly written and the story was very realistic.
Heartwarming, homespun, quirky, emotional and entertaining adventure for three sisters with a lot of real life regrets and secrets keeping them apart.
Dana, Harper, and Tawny are the “Sometimes Sisters” each with a different yet sad history and only one summer together at their Granny Annie’s lakeside resort (their dad's mom). When Granny Annie passes it is her dying wish they come together to run the resort and make a go of it as a family. Uncle Zed is on hand to help them become the sisters th ...more
