Book Review: Sisters in Love (Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters #1) - Melissa Foster

SynopsisDanica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.

Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn't know how to stop doing what he does best.

When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn't sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

Review - I wouldn't say this was specifically a Christmas story.  Set in winter, yes.  A Christmas tree does feature once and of course, there is snow and skiing in the village.

My initial reaction to this story was, oh here we go!  It's going to be about this guy and his conquests and tricks.  Clichéd.  But as the story progressed and the characters developed it was apparent that the author was not going down the route I initially thought I was on.  I liked the characters and particularly the way the dialogue/relationship between Danica, the therapist and Blake her patient/client developed.  The focus on Danica and those she helped was interesting, also the relationship between Blake and his friend's family.  Yes, there were some parts I found annoying and wondered if they really were necessary in any great detail but there are few books that please the reader totally.  I must admit once it really got going it was one of those reads that are difficult to put down.  3*
