You loved Danica and Kaylie in SISTERS IN LOVE, find out what happens next with SISTERS IN BLOOM
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 fiancé, 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.
Content Warnings: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+
Sisters in Bloom, the second novel in Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters series, is full of drama, misunderstandings and romance. Danica Snow is happy with Blake and her youth center is thriving. Kaylie Snow is in the midst of major turmoil as she prepares for the upcoming birth of her baby.
Danica is at a good place in her life. No longer a therapist, she has accomplished her goal of opening a youth center and her relationship with Blake is flourishing. But as we soon discover, there is still room for improvement in her life. Danica is reluctant to take the next step in her relationship with Blake and she falls back on old defense mechanisms to protect herself.
In the beginning, Kaylie is still the immature, self-centered and irritating character we were introduced to in the first book. And to make matters worse, we (and her poor fiancé Chaz) are subjected to over-the-top hormone induced mood swings. Kaylie’s insecurities are at a fever pitch as she faces a career crisis, her unresolved issues stemming from her parents’ long ago divorce and her inability to see herself as more than just a pretty face. After her kneejerk reactions cause her to leap to some wildly inaccurate and unsubstantiated conclusions, Kaylie’s discussions with Danica force her to face some unpleasant truths and Kaylie finally faces her problems head on. Her character from this point is much more likable and sympathetic.
Kalyie’s relationship with Chaz is fraught with tension. Her careening emotions cause her to lash out at Chaz as he tries to help her find viable alternatives for her faltering musical career. When a person from his past re-emerges, Chaz’s mishandling of the situation causes tension between the couple. Fortunately their misunderstanding is quickly and easily cleared up and they use the opportunity to strengthen their relationship.
The ending of Sisters in Bloom is a happy one for Danica and Kaylie and their respective partners. It beautifully sets the stage for Sisters in White, the next installment of Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters series.
