About the Book:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery pens a love story of a different sort…a heartfelt tale of friendship between two women who used to be sisters.

Once upon a time, when her dad married Sage’s mom, Daisy was thrilled to get a bright and shiny new sister. But Sage was beautiful and popular, everything Daisy was not, and she made sure Daisy knew it.
Sage didn’t have Daisy’s smarts—she had to go back a grade to enroll in the fancy rich-kid school. So she used her popularity as a weapon, putting Daisy down to elevate herself.

After the divorce, the stepsisters’ rivalry continued until the final, improbable straw: Daisy married Sage’s first love, and Sage fled California.

Eighteen years, two kids and one troubled marriage later, Daisy never expects—or wants—to see Sage again. But when the little sister they have in common needs them both, they put aside their differences to care for Cassidy. As long-buried truths are revealed, no one is more surprised than they when friendship blossoms.

Their fragile truce is threatened by one careless act that could have devastating consequences. They could turn their backs on each other again…or they could learn to forgive once and for all and finally become true sisters of the heart.


Daisy’s marriage is falling apart. She is struggling to keep it together when her dad calls and wants her to take in her injured half sister. Cassidy has fallen off a mountain and has multiple injuries and needs constant care. But, along with Cassidy comes Sage. Sage is Daisy’s ex-stepsister. They didn’t get along years ago and it looks like they are falling back into the old pattern.

There is so much about this story that I loved. Each character has good and bad qualities. This makes them so real and adorable. I enjoyed reading about their growth and when they begin to trust each other, their interactions had me laughing out loud!

Now, Daisy’s husband, Jordan, is not someone I enjoyed at all. I found him whiny and down right selfish. But the way the sisters come together to support Daisy just made my day!

Need a good book about over coming the past and learning to love and trust…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
