Did she once have a sister? Has her mother lied all these years? Why?
After a painful divorce, Maisey Lazarow returns to Fairham, the small island off the North Carolina coast where she grew up. She goes there to heal—and to help her brother, Keith, a deeply troubled man who’s asked her to come home. But she refuses to stay in the family house. The last person she wants to see is the wealthy, controlling mother she escaped years ago.
Instead, she finds herself living next door to someone else she’d prefer to avoid—Rafe Romero, the wild, reckless boy to whom she lost her virginity at sixteen. He’s back on the island, and to her surprise, he’s raising a young daughter alone. Maisey’s still attracted to him, but her heart’s too broken to risk…
Then something even more disturbing happens. She discovers a box of photographs that evoke distant memories of a little girl, a child Keith remembers, too. Maisey believes the girl must’ve been their sister, but their mother claims there was no sister.
Maisey’s convinced that child existed. So where is she now?
The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak is indeed the best romantic thriller I have read. Readers will be taken deep into te main characters’ past. Secrets that have been hidden forever come out and those that were blamed are innocent. A hot steamy novel that will lure readers in further with each pasisng page. I loved reading this story. Brenda Novak has a raw talent in bringing her novels to life. I have read every novel by Brenda but this one, is the most stunning of her creations. Realistic, suspenseful, and an edge of your seat romance that will have readers coming back for more.
Breanda Novak’s debut novel, The Secret Sister, is one that I highly recommend to readers worldwide. A family so torn apart are trying to unite and fix what troubles them. However, it will be dangerous in stirring up a bee’s nest after so many years of the accident. A sister who was pushed off a cliff, a borther who is an addict and blames himself, and another sister who is divorced and wants answers. But that isn’t all. Maisey is determined to find the answers and another part of her past comes out to tease her. Rafe was the older guy every girl talked about and the only only the Maisey spet her first time with. Now back home, Maisey meets Rafe again and there passion burns hotter than coals. Can Maisey have llove and help her family? Overall, I rate this novel a five out of five stars.
