  • A fun read

    A story about sisters. Past was weaved brilliantly into the present by the ever talented Julie Houston who got the equations between the sisters just right. Love was their bond, but secrets too got in their way. Warmth of the village and the quirky characters soon set the ball rolling. They were all different, some took time to grow on me. The author could bring home important emotions, light and shadows paving its way. The story had realistic tones, the sisters and their life journey came alive in the prose. The story flowed well from its very concept. Overcoming the past for a brilliant future was the core, but it was their love for each other which made the story shine. A brilliant, heart touching read by a wonderful author.

  • Warmth, Compassion - and Terrific Humour!

    I've loved every book by Julie Houston, and relish having her name on my reading list; I have so looked forward to this one and it's a total delight to visit Westenbury once more. Juno Sutherland has more than enough on her plate; a part-time job as a local doctor keeps her very busy, and then there's home, two children, her husband and a pony with a mind of it's own to take care of - not to mention her broken family which has left her mother needy and her sisters estranged. So she could do without a new locum joining the practice and booting her out of her room . . . Well, it didn't take long for me to burst into laughter! The author's golden touch shone through the pages mixing joy, fun, laughter and angst - seamlessly. In what seemed like no time at all I was totally invested in all these fabulous characters as they became almost real. I felt that Juno was a close friend who I got to know better and better as the story expanded to include all of her family and I was thrilled when a few of the locals popped up - especially those who has been the focus of previous novels. I love that, while each book is a stand-alone read, those who came before are never entirely forgotten. With her trademark warmth, compassion - and terrific humour - this author has created another winner. Superbly written and wonderfully entertaining, this is absolutely a five star novel!

  • I love a book set within a village

    Sing me a Secret is the first book by author Julie Houston that I have read and I can see why she is a best-selling author as the storyline flowed perfectly and the book felt inviting and kept me entertained throughout. This is a tale of four sisters, all very different with unique personalities. The book opens with youngest sister Lexia Sutherland winning a singing competition to front a new girl group, we then move forward in time fifteen years and find out about a long-standing falling out within the family between Lexia and the rest. Lexia is now married to a Premier League Footballer and has a young son. When her husband signs a contract for a new football club they have to move to where she grew up and where her family still live. Not all are pleased that she is returning home. The relationship between the sisters I have seen many times before within some of my friend’s families so they were perfectly realistic to me. I loved how warm they could be to one another as well as cold and brutal at times too. The book is heart-warming, charming, and often funny, especially when one of the sisters Juno was involved. There are big secrets (given in the title) that are being held which when revealed were a shock to me. There is also a bit of eye-candy in the form of the new locum doctor, and a man to hate in Footballer Theo. I love a book set within a village as you would think big cities were where the action happens but villages seem to have so much fun. I loved the book for all its surprises, great characters, and for giving me a laugh.

    Thanks for your feedback!
