Soo, what is the world coming to when I read two chick lit books in a week. It took me five hours to read. I could easily read two category romances and get two happy endings in that time.

Ali Ahearn and her sister Ros Baxter are both writers in their own right, Ali under her Amy Andrews pseudonym for Harlequin and Entangled and Ros is just starting out. I read a great little short on her blog last week for Valentine's Day.

Put them together and you get a story about two sisters who haven't talked

This wonderfully addictive book swept me up from the beginning, made me laugh out loud, yet at other times made a knot form in my throat, and thoroughly entertained me from beginning to end. Sisters Frances and Joni have been estranged for seven years. The reason is not clearly spelled out until the end of the book. Born of wacky parents, these girls were as different as night and day, yet they loved each other…that is, until that fateful day that drove the final wedge into their relationship. T ...more

This was a good light read. Well paced, the story keeps you going to the end. The characters were interesting and well suited for the plot. We follow the story of two sisters who have not spoken to each other in 7 years. Joni is a recovering drug addict and Frances is undergoing marital problems. Both have issues and both are required by the will of their grandmother to enter ENDURANCE ISLAND and survive to the finals so they can inherit.
Joni and Frances are meant to hail from England, but I fo

I met Ali Ahearn at the Australian Romance Readers Convention a few years ago, and she made me laugh. She was on a number of panels and she was FUNNY! So I was really looking forward to reading Sister Pact. Right from page one I knew I was going to enjoy it. A great opening, tight writing, well paced, a lovely sense of slapstick, and of course funny.

Alison wrote Sister Pact with her sister Ros Baxter, which gives the book an interesting twist (because it’s also about 2 sisters). I’d love to kno

It seems I really am turning into a big sook in my old age, tissues again, REALLY. Yep, apparently.

Sister Pact is a book that brings it! But I think the best thing is it was truly an original, in my experience anyway.

Joni and Frances are sisters, at one time inseparable, but all of that changes and we don’t discover why until the end of the book. There are hints, but then there are anti-hints that make you think you are totally off track. This is one set of circumstances that keeps you guessing

Two estranged sisters have to compete and get into the finals of Endurance Island. The show is a mix between Survivor and Big Brother and if they get to the finale, they inherit 1 million pounds each from their Grandmother's surprise estate.

At first I thought this book would be cheesy, as a lot of the books I've read involving the trend of reality shows have been in the past. I think Ali Ahearn and Ros Baxter did well in their portrayal of sisterhood and the things that can damage such a special

Have added this one to my 'to read' pile after reading a great interview with the authors on a friends blog...

Link above if anyone is interested in the interview.

I love that the story is about sisters and was written by sisters.

A little bit silly and outrageous as the Feuding Heiresses appear on a reality television program so they can mend their relationship and thus win a million pounds each. The premise was a little unbelievable, but there was something about it that kept me lazily turning pages.

good book, took a little while to get into but a nice read all the same

At first I thought it would be a cheesy chick read, but I ended up hooked!

Some books are great and you can read in a few hours. Others feel like they go on forever. This was unfortunately more the latter than the former. I don't, as a rule, watch reality TV and reading a book about it was probably as bad. But I made a pact with myself last year to continue to read the bad in order to appreciate the good all the more.
