#BlogTour #Review #NetGalley #TheSunriseSisterhood
Three generations of women, and the summer that saved them.
The holidays are here, and in Salcombe, Liz longs for the arrival of her god-daughters, Skye and Clare and Clare’s daughter baby Ivy. After years on her own, she needs help to save the catering business she built with Clare’s late mother, Jen.
However, half-sisters Skye and Clare couldn’t be more different, struggling with family secrets and hidden jealousies. As the women navigate this unexpected summer together, truths are revealed and their relationships are put to the test.
The Sunrise Sisterhood is a summery slice of joyful escapism as well as an emotional drama about three women healed by the sparkling waves of Salcombe and the power of the sisterhood.
I love this author’s books, and what a lovely read this one was. We meet Liz who runs a catering business in Salcombe. However, since her business partner and best friend, Jen died, Liz has lost the enthusiasm to run the business. When Liz’s goddaughters, Clare and Skye, come to spend the summer with her, circumstances mean that they decide to get Liz’s catering business back up and running.
This was truly a delightful read full of family, love and life. I loved the characters (yes, even Mike redeemed himself slightly!) and found them likeable and easy to relate to. They all had their flaws, problems and secrets, but these were beautifully dealt with throughout the story with their issues coming to a head and then being resolved as their storylines moved on. The author always writes books which are captivating, and this was no different. I was caught into the storyline very early on and couldn’t put it down until I reached the last page!
This story was the perfect piece of escapism that I needed. I absolutely loved the location of this book, and if the descriptions of glorious Devon didn’t put me in the holiday mood, then the descriptions of Liz’s tantalising food certainly did! There was lots of family drama and secrets, but equally plenty of romance to cheer it up along the way. If you’re looking for a holiday read, look no further! Wonderful!
