The Secrets Sisters Keep opening line: She switched off her electric toothbrush and listened.
The Devlin’s are a normal Irish family of four, 3 older sisters who have doted on their younger brother, who is now a 27 year old man living at home with his parents and seemingly with no life path. His sister Julie is married to Harry, and has 4 boys – 3 unruly triplets and Tom. Since Harry has inherited a lot of money, her life has been turned upside down and she feels she cannot tell her sisters how meaningless her life feels. Her sister Sophie is beautiful, an ex model and a successful business woman. But she too doesn’t want to tell her sisters how lonely she is. Louise is smart, driven and the mother of Clara, a 4 year old genius who has issues all of her own. Louise buries herself in work rather than turning to her sisters. But it is Gavin, the brother who seems to have no direction who changes the lives of everyone around them. The sisters open up to one another, learn to rely on each other and something magical is created from this.
The Secrets Sisters Keep
The Devlin sisters rely on each other – but some things are just too painful to share, even when your sisters are your best friends . . .
Mum-of-four Julie thought that if her family had more money, life would be easier. But now that they’ve inherited a fortune, her problems are only starting. Lawyer Louise is used to having life go exactly as she wants it to. So accepting that she cannot control the most important thing in her life is beyond her. And former model Sophie can just about cope with getting older – that’s until her ex-husband finds a younger model.
All three women think that some battles are best fought alone. Maybe they need to think again . . .
Just like Mad About You by the same author, I loved reading this book. It was the perfect read for a lazy weekend afternoon sat in front of the TV with the cricket playing in the background.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

sorry to say, this is definitely a chicks thing,
so, big nope, hehehe
It is chick lit 🙂
Sounds like a great “beach read” book. Sometimes, you need a book that lets you be a bit of a lazy reader, especially for me after reading Unbroken, so intense!
A good beach book is perfect for relaxing 🙂
I have heard about this book so must look out for it – thanks Tandy.

A lazy afternoon read sounds just perfect. 🙂
It was indeed 🙂
