the sin jumped on people as they swam She loved the sound of his soft drawl Maybe she could take him home He could sit beside her bed and read the phone book to her until she fell asleep.My Review I enjoyed this cleverly paced small town family drama that was packed with quirky characters, heart squeezing histories, irreverent homespun wisdom, and amusing observations Three grieving and desperate women arrived at a small town Texas lake resort with each hoping for a chance at a fresh start in life They had previously called themselves sometimes sisters, although they were actually three half sisters who were only together one month each summer while staying at the rustic lake resort of with their much loved grandmother, Granny Annie Each was envious of the others but had never looked too deeply as nothing was as it had seemed But Granny Annie has just passed away, and the three women must return to run the resort together or get nothing at all, which posed quite the challenge, as they had not been successful in spending than a few minutes together without an argument breaking out Each arrived at the resort out of options, out of money, and weighted down with shameful secrets, regrets, and old resentments Little did they know that Granny Annie had been keeping the biggest secret of them all My favorite character was not one of the sisters but the elderly cook who had been known to them all their lives as Uncle Zed, I adored him, even if he was the cause of the first ugly cry I ve sobbed out in years flag 43 likesLike see review View all 7 comments Feb 25, 2018 Rachel

resort Dana is the oldest, a bastard child of their father he refused to acknowledge, but Granny Annie wouldn t stand for her son s behavior and accepted her as the true granddaughter she is Harper and Tawny were the legitimate daughters, but didn t mean they weren t abandoned by a parent too These girls only got along sometimes, and there s been a lot of years since that s happened Each one of the sisters has a sad tale and a sort of a chip on their shoulders, but they ll need to get over it to work together after their Granny s death It s Granny Annie s dying wish to make it so, and Uncle Zed has been tasked to transforming these women to the always sisters instead of sometimes sisters At the death of their Granny, all three sisters gather at the Lakeside Resort, to mourn her passing and take over running the place with Uncle Zed, Granny Annie s best friend, and their as good as grandpa We gradually discover why each need this place to call home as the story progresses I loved watching these women heal and draw close, while their Granny whispers encouragement or snap out of it statements in their heads I had to laugh at some of her sayings Uncle Zed is quite the peacemaker, too, and I just loved him to pieces My heart broke for his loss at the beginning of the story, but I was glad he got to stick around and witness these sisters putting aside their differences and becoming a real, solid family The setting is exactly the kind of place I d love to spend the summer, a beautiful lakeside resort with old fashioned cabins, a little snack, bait and tackle store, and a caf serving all the good home cooked favorites This place sounded like a dream escape to me This is of a women s fiction story, but there are romances for each of the girls, including Brooke, Dana s daughter Even though they were side stories and not the complete focus, each of them was sweet and lovely, and a welcome addition There s also a back story, a touching one, about Granny Annie and Uncle Zed that I suspected, and then was revealed in the end Like I said, tears, both happy and sad were shed with this heartwarming, lovely story A copy was kindly provided by Montlake Romance via

called home to pick up the pieces, claim their inheritance and hopefully find a home Will they ever be than sometimes sisters What I Liked Carolyn Brown is best known for her sweet cowboy romances, but every now and then, Ms Brown delivers a touching, contemporary story This book is about three sisters who lost their way They come home after their sweet grandma passes away They work to claim their inheritance, and over time, they recognize the importance of familial bonds This is a moving story that will tug at your heart strings Don t miss it I liked that all three of the sisters take time to grow on you As the story opens, all three of the women are struggling with their professional and personal lives In fact, they are all train wrecks When they reunite, they are quick to find fault with one another and to speak harshly As the story moves on, the reader learns the secret burden that each girl is carrying Once the girls open up and let go, beautiful things happen I loved watching each sister grow and evolve By the end, they will win you over Zed and Brook round out the cast, and they are the show stealers Zed is an old African American who was the best friend to their beloved Granny Annie Zed loved Annie from the time he was a little boy, despite the fact that Annie was blonde and white Love does not see color After Annie passes away, it is up to Zed to see that Annie s dying wishes to reunite her granddaughters is met Zed is steadfast, kind, patient and devoted How I loved this kindly, old man Brook is Dana s teenage daughter She is grown up than her mom and aunts a lot of the time I loved how she often talked sense into the feuding girls She is a sweetheart, but don t think she is a pushover, she can throw a punch and hold her own At the heart of the story is the message of the importance of family, whether it be your blood relatives or the family you make with your heart as in the case of Zed I loved seeing all the characters grow closer and closer Even when they were feuding, the girls were quick to defend one another to outsiders By the end, the girls are always sisters For all of you who love romance, there is romance in this one I liked though the the romances were not the central focus of the story, they are fun side stories This is a heartfelt book I loved exploring all the relationships, especially the one between Zed and Granny Annie There are so many heartfelt moments I dare you to read this and not get teary eyed The ending is sweet and satisfying I loved that there was an Epilogue a year down the road that caught the reader up on everything that had transpired for the sisters It was wonderful to see them content and happy And The Not So Much One of the aspects that intrigued me the most was the relationship between Granny Annie and Zed I was desperate to know Finally at the end, there was a revelation to the girls about the true nature of the relationship between Annie and Zed I still wanted In fact, I would love a whole book with Granny Annie and Zed Granny Annie even though she was dead throughout the book, still was one of the most fascinating characters She is ever present in all the characters thoughts I loved her witty sayings and her advice I wanted so much from Granny Annie I found myself wishing that she could have been alive I needed of her The Sometimes Sisters is delightful and touching story that explores the bonds of family I loved the characters, the story lines, and the focus on the importance of familial bonds, whether they be blood relations or those you choose with your heart If you want a sweet story with memorable characters and one that will make you shed a few tears, grab this one I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest

half sisters when their grandmother dies Grandma Annie s last wish is to see these three Sometimes Sisters work past whatever made them all go their separate ways as teens and become a family again With the help of the resort, old Uncle Zed, memories of Annie, chances at new and old love, the Clancy sisters return to the lake I enjoyed this touching story that focuses on the lives of three estranged sisters who have all hit rock bottom and need a do over on life and a new chance at being family The death of their grandmother and the summons from beyond the grave for them to all return to the lake resort where they used to spend their summers is the catalyst that is needed Dana, Harper, and Tawny, along with Dana s precocious teenage daughter must now run the resort together per Annie s wishes.It starts out really rocky with these three and I was ready to hose the lot of them down They each come burdened down with secrets and baggage and poor Zed has his hands full fulfilling his deceased love s last wishes and his own before he is gone, too I wasn t sure if I was going to make it through the acrimonious snipping the sisters did, but the author found a good balance there and started having them begin to heal and change just at the right moment It was gradual and just the right pace to be believable for the type of past hurts and pains these three were suffering.The author s usual wry country humor, engaging characters, and charming nostalgic setting was all there, but it was pared with touching family issues of these three women and young woman who have all had the bitter pain of disappointing parents to deal with and Annie, the grandmother, being the one who held them all together for a while and the one they could count on Now, they are slowly learning to count on themselves and each other even as their healing brings the chance for old romance and new romance opportunities.The romances were sweet, but I was definitely attracted to the sisterly relationships and the coming back together as family Old, darling Zed was my favorite character I enjoyed those bittersweet moments where he talked and listened to Annie while he tried to corral those younger women and know just how to handle them all particularly in the beginning when they were so hostile.All in all, this was a gently paced story that tugged at my heart, made me chuckle a little, and tear up once or twice It had lighter qualities, but it was a little bittersweet, too This will match up for those who enjoy stories of family healing and a side of sweet romance.I rec d this book

put a smile to my face and even when there s sad moments, the happy ones always trump the bad ones And it made me realize that what I like so much in Carolyn Brown s writing is that it makes me feel

romance and learn a secret about their Grandma Annie The romances could have been developed , or even left out all together They were sweet and tender romances, which I liked, but I would have preferred to see the women form their bonds and deal with their individual problems before getting romantically involved One of the romances felt shoehorned in as if Brown realized she d given romances to everyone and forgotten one sister There were some quotes I seriously disagreed with and a factual error about a current show on TV, and the emphasis on the beauties of small town life got to be a bit much Like many authors, Brown has a tendency to put small town life on a pedestal I ve lived in small towns most of my life so I know full well the downsides to them The Sometimes Sisters was a slow moving, sweet story that had its share of tragedy and bitterness but ultimately it was hopeful and and had a happy ending Although the story frustrated me at times, I did get pulled in and rooted for the sisters to make peace with each other If you want a character driven, sweet story that s a mix of family drama and romance, then pick up The Sometimes Sisters.I received a copy from the

they re starting to feel at ease with each other again Zed is a loving man and he has plenty of good Annie stories to share, which made me tear up many times They re absolutely wonderful and I was spellbound by their gorgeous connection I love stories about families and The Sometimes Sisters is an amazing one The bond between the sisters is a lot stronger than they think To move on they have to start peeling off all of their emotional layers, which is an interesting and moving process to witness I couldn t turn the pages quickly enough to discover about their secrets and really enjoyed being so anxious to find out if they d be happy again.Carolyn Brown s wonderful warm writing is making The Sometimes Sisters an absolute joy to read It s a special book filled with many precious moments, unexpected twists and turns and complex secrets and relationships I loved the story from beginning to end and couldn t put it down The Sometimes Sisters is a brilliant touching story about unconditional love, family, friendship and forgiveness I highly recommend this delightful story flag 3 likesLike see review Feb 23, 2018 Ruthie Taylor rated it it was amazing I received a free copy of

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 over Such attention to detail, without being too flowery is a feature of Ms Brown s writing, and it is highly effective There was also a wonderful message of how easy it is to assume that everyone s reaction will be negative, given the feedback we get from those who are supposed to love unconditionally That level of judgment which caused sadness 50 years ago, still persists in other forms right now The setting, the behaviours of the sisters and their parents, all combined to give a truly meaningful and special story for us to enjoy Thank you Ms Brown for sharing it with us flag 2 likesLike see review Aug 21, 2018 Mary rated it liked it

history with Annie would have been a treat.What I didn t love How do these people not have diabetes with all of the candy, desserts, and pure sugar they ingested An extended time line would have been

York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown.When they were growing up, Dana, Harper, and Tawny thought of themselves as sometimes sisters They connected only during the summer month they d all spend at their grandmother s rustic lakeside resort in north Texas But secrets started building, and ten years have passed since they ve all been together in fact, they ve rarely spoken, and it broke their grandmother s heart.Now she s gone, leaving Annie s Place to her granddaughters twelve cabins, a small house, a caf , a convenience store, and a lot of family memories It s where Dana, Harper, and Tawny once shared so many good times They ve returned, sharing only hidden regrets, a guarded mistrust, and haunting guilt But now, in this healing summer place, the secrets that once drove them apart could bring them back together especially when they discover that their grandmother may have been hiding something, too To overcome the past and find future happiness, these sometimes sisters have one chance to realize they are always family My Thoughts It seems that when the time that passes the harder it becomes to find common ground and leave past grievances out of present interactions Such is the case for the three Clancy sisters Dana, Harper and Tawny Dana always felt like since their father never acknowledged her that half sisters Harper and Tawny had a much better family life growing up than hers.Funny thing was Harper and Tawny felt the same about Dana.Finally there came a time when the tenuous ties the girls felt for each other fell apart, ten years pass and now all that tension comes to a boil as they finally hash out those long held feelings that had grown all out of proportion.As children there was no better summer vacation than Granny Annie s North Texas home for Dana, Harper and Tawny Clancy.The three women, who once called themselves Sometimes Sisters, have all returned to fulfill their beloved grandmothers last wish upon her death Older, warier and not altogether sure that living together once again to run the businesses they inherited would completely tear them apart or finally bring them together forever.A chance for old hurts to heal and new beginnings to become reality this book is all about family ties that bind tighter than we believe Even when those same ties are stretched thin for many years they never totally break apart as the sisters and reader
