The Sunset Sisters by Cecilia Lyra / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @ceciliaclyra



The Sisterhood Series #1

Two sisters. A surprising inheritance. A summer that changes everything.

As children, half-sisters Cassie and Julie were nearly inseparable, bonded through happy, lazy summers playing barefoot in the surf and sleeping out on the porch of their grandmother’s Hamptons beach house. Though from wildly different backgrounds, each magical summer the girls were as close as only best friends, accomplices, sisters can be. But they haven’t spoken in nearly fifteen years—not since the funeral of Cassie’s mother—and now there is only resentment and painful memories between them.

Successful and self-contained, Cassie is shocked to learn the requirements of their Nana’s will—that she and Julie spend one final summer together in the Hamptons house in order to inherit. Cassie agrees reluctantly, she needs an excuse to leave Boston and give the growing rumors about her personal life a chance to die down.

And for Julie, who is discovering too late the cracks in her marriage, it is the chance to repair at least one damaged relationship. But for the two sisters to regain what they had, they will have to finally confront what happened the night Cassie lost her mother. With their Nana’s wisdom guiding the way, could this summer bring painful discoveries, and a new direction, for both sisters?




There are different ways people can be bound together: love, friendship, family… and money.

When you rather fell in love with someone’s bank account then with the person who owns it, heartbreak will be on the menu. You stay with that person but you will look for love elsewhere. Not many people choose poverty over money even if it means being with the one you truely love.

How many people do you hurt in the process especially when also kids are involved? And when you look into your heart, are you really happy living a double life, being loved by some and hated by others, loving some and hating others? Maybe in the beginning yes, but when everything starts crumbling down, you are left with nothing but some material things. Was it worth all this hassle, these fights, this pain? Clocks are made to move forward. There is no turning back.

An emotional story about love, betrayal and secrets and where the cheater gets what he deserves. 4 stars
