When Brooke’s older sister, Mindy, shows up at her door with her three kids in tow, she barely recognizes her sibling who looks like she’s on the verge of a total breakdown. While adventurous, wanderlust Brooke was always the problem child, eager to slip free of Wildstone and its small-town constraints, Mindy was the golden child, who never had a hair out of place or a GPA below 4.0. The Mindy that arrives at Brooke’s apartment however, is a far cry from the ever-perfect doctor’s wife.

Brooke’s further stunned when Mindy asks to trade places with her for a few days so she can pick up her pieces and put herself back together. What Mindy doesn’t realize is that Brooke is just as broken. Her sister needs her though, so Brooke takes the kids and returns to Wildstone.

But how does one go home after seven years away and what feels like a lifetime of secrets? It doesn’t take long for Brooke to come face-to-face with her past, in the form of one tall, dark, sexy mistake. But Garrett’s no longer interested, or so he says. Only his words don’t match his actions, leaving Brooke feeling things she long ago shoved deep.

The sisters begin to wonder if the childhood taunts were true, are they lemons in life? In love? True or not, they know one thing—you can’t run far enough to outpace your demons. And when long-dead secrets surface, they’ll have to overcome their differences and learn that sometimes the one person who can help you the most is the one you never thought to ask.

My review:

I love this one so much.

The Lemon Sisters is really three stories told seamlessly in one. Brooke is single, living in LA and working for a travel network. Her sister Mindy is the opposite: married to her high school sweetheart who is now a doctor, stay at home mom to three kids. When she shows up at Brooke’s house in crisis, Brooke takes the kids for a couple days to give Mindy time to sleep and recuperate, but instead of her original plan of Disneyland ends up taking them home, where she hasn’t been for seven years. We get Brooke’s story and her relationship with the one she left in Wildstone, Mindy’s story and her marriage with Linc, and then Brooke and Mindy themselves, both wanting the closeness they shared in the past but neither knowing how to get there.  There is so much unexpected wisdom in these pages, along with tears and a lot of laughter. Throw in three rambunctious kids, “cute little soul-suckers” as their father terms it, return of a father who abandoned his family, a turtle with a balloon, and three cats who rule their home, and you have a touching, poignant story of hope, love, loss, and what it means to be family.
