  • Gorgeous cover for a gorgeous book

    Gorgeous Cover for a gorgeous book. As the title implies, this is a book about sisters, and family, and love, and I really enjoyed this one. It’s not a romance and the characters are not perfect, nor do they always do what is right, but this is what made this book real for me, it’s about family.... And family is never straightforward or easy. I always enjoy a book that is not predictable, and the twists and turns of this book kept my interest throughout the entire novel. This book is about family, and more specifically about sisterly love, and the hurts and slights of childhood and how they grow and change into adulthood. It’s also about misconceptions of childhood and how these misconceptions are magnified and brought into adulthood. I enjoyed these three sisters, they are far from perfect, and have not had a very good relationship in the past. They make mistakes, and some very big mistakes, and that is real life, but they learn and they grow from these mistakes and figure out how to carry on and grow their relationship with each other. Their relationship is complex, in fact, I was confused just a few pages into the book, and a bit frustrated that Daisey’s two children figured out the relationship between the 3 sisters before I did! Two stepsisters, two half-sisters, two fathers, and two mothers, it's all so complicated, but that’s life, especially modern life. The writing is superb, the characters are complex and interesting, the pace of the book kept things moving so I never got bored. In fact, I almost read it all in one sitting, the book is extremely difficult to put down. I highly recommend this book, especially to anyone who had grown up with sisters or who wishes they did.

  • A great summer read

    Susan mallery is spot on when writing about how complicated family relationships can be and how they can affect kids. This time she writes about the ins and out of stepsisters and divorce. Daisy’s life is turned upside down, newly separated with two kids, when her step sister Sage steps back into her life. Just when she thought Daisy couldn’t handle anything more, her father calls to ask her to take care of Cassidy, her other stepsister because of an accident she was in. Can life get any more complicated for Daisy? Will this accident bring the step sisters closer together and mend their relationship or will it further divide them? This book will have you turning the pages to find out. I loved the recipes this author included with the book club discussion guide. Perfect book to read with your book club while enjoying the Bel Air Cobb Salad and Berry Bellinis as suggested.

  • Can they become friends?

    I just love how the sisters became a family after so many years of hate and misunderstandings. Daisy only wanted a mother and sister, but that wasn't to be. Her step-mother and sister were mean to her and she felt isolated. When her half-sister was born Daisy thought she would finally get a sister to love, but it was not to be. Now they are all grown, Sage has appeared out of nowhere and Daisy's dad calls to say that Cassidy has been in an accident and needs around the clock care. To top it all off, Daisy's husband moves out of the house and sends her a text to let her know. Who does that? Sage's mom has always been a terrible person and she finds ways to make Daisy's life miserable. Can they become friends after all these years? Maybe even sisters?

  • I liked it once I got into the guts of it

    This is about sisterhood that while together didn't know what they truly had, then once their parents got divorced they never had a chance. I had a hard time getting into this book. It seemed like everyone was whining about something in the beginning. Daisy's dad had been married to Joanne. Joanne was Sage & Cassidy's mom. They didn't get along when they were kids for stupid reasons, Sage was beautiful, and Daisy was too smart. Joanne never liked Daisy. One day Joanne had hit Daisy with a wooden spoon from the kitchen and left welts and bruises. Daisy hid in her closet and her dad found her. Of course he wanted to know what happened and she told him, he divorced Joanne and she blamed Daisy. After that things got worse between the kids. Cassidy being the youngest didn't understand anything and was told to never trust Daisy again. Sage was a real with to Daisy over the years she has been very mean to Daisy. She would use her looks and personality to make Daisy's life miserable at school any chance she got. Daisy was always so smart, she hated her for that. Sage had to stay back a year and was always compared to Daisy and told to be more like her. She hated it. Sage was dating a guy named Jordan in high school. They got engaged and she wanted to get married after graduation. He thought they were too young and wanted to make a career first. Well Sage wasn't getting what she wanted so she broke off with him and ran off to Paris. Daisy ended up with Jordan eventually got married and now have 2 children. She hasn't heard from either stepsisters in over 10 years. One day her dad called and told her that her younger sister Cassidy had got hurt, she fell off a mountain and was in pretty bad shape. She needed to come stay with Daisy while she was on the mend. Daisy wasn't happy about it but agreed to it. In the time of her younger sister staying with her and because of that Sage was coming over and things were changing. They were starting to make progress in working their way back to being friends if nothing else. But things started to come out while they talked, things they never knew or remembered it a different way. The road is bumpy and full of ups and downs, tears and laughter. The women start to find their way back to each other. But when everything is going really really good, Sage does something that really screws it all up. Will they forgive her and move on or will this undo all the progress. Find out when you read The Stepsisters by Susan Mallery. Did I like it yes, did I finally get into it? Yes I did. Then I enjoyed it. I hope you do too. " I received a free, advance copy of this book from the author. This my unbiased and voluntary review."

  • Must read

    I’m so glad I was given the chance to read this heartfelt, emotional page turner. Daisy and Sage are stepsisters, as a result of Daisy’s dad, Wallace, marrying Sage’s mom, Joanne. Cassidy is their half sister. Daisy and Sage were never friends and that really hurt Daisy. When their parents divorce, Cassidy spends time at both places, but she doesn’t want anything to do with Daisy either. Now, Daisy and Sage are in their thirties. Sage has recently returned to the States, after another failed marriage. Daisy and her husband, Jordan, are separated. Jordan was Sage’s high school sweetheart. Wallace calls telling her Cassidy has had an accident and needs round the clock nursing care. He wants Daisy to move her into her home. When Cassidy arrives, she is totally against having anything to do with Daisy. She only wants Sage’s company. As you’re reading this book, secrets are revealed and we learn why each of the sisters are like they are. When they finally grow closer, one of the sisters does something unforgettable. Will they be able to reconnect after this or will they go back to how things used to be? I’m not going to tell what happens, but I will say this, have tissues close by. Just my personal opinion, but Joanne is one horrible woman. I received an advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary and honest review.
