SUMMARY: Hope Bartolli has avoided Sisters for year. But when she inherits her beloved grandmother's old house, Hope must decide whether to once again run away from the two sisters who have caused her nothing but trouble--or stay in the charming town and risk her heart.

REVIEW: Melody Carlson is one of my favorite authors, but I have to say she dropped the ball on this one. First, it contains very little Christian thread throughout the storyline. Second, I saw very little development within the c

I thought this was a series. I really think it should be if it isn't. So much more to write about each of the daughters.

Nona (grandmother) has died and Hope returns to Sisters, Oregon for the funeral. Intending to spend only a couple of days there because of her relationship with her father and her sisters, Faith and Charity. The reading of the will changes all plans! Melody Carlson is a Christian author. One of my favorite lines was from Faye's (Faith) 13 year old nephew. Something about the si

I have read a bunch of the Love Finds You books and I am sorry to say that this is my least favorite so far. The books in this series usually have a light, fun and romantic feel that I will choose to read when I just want to relax. There is no way anyone could relax to this story of three sisters who have so much pain and anger spewing from them like erupting volcanos which, by the way, is a comparison in the storyline. I was actually saddened and a little depressed after reading about halfway t ...more

I loved it

This is a story about 3 grown sisters who have parted ways over the years and have alot of anger and jealousy built up between them. The middle sister moved away from their hometown years ago to escape problems and pain caused by the younger sister. The oldest sister just recently moved back to town after getting divorced. Their grandmother dies and her Will brings the middle sister, Hope, back to town. The grandmother had hoped it would force the sisters to mend their rift. My only co

I picked this up at the airport and looked at it. It seemed like a cute little niche idea, to write books set in real towns, so I dropped it onto the Kindle. And I really liked it. For Fluffy Chick Lit the author did a good job of creating a believable story line, likable characters and a good flow.

I really struggled with this book, because her sisters were waaaayyy out there, and then the ending was tied up in a nice little bow. I guess that is why it is fiction. It was an ok story line, a lot unrealistic, but fun to read about Sisters, Oregon and the Sisters mountain range.

Hope's grandmother "Nona" dies in her sleep in her 90's. She loved her so much and was very close to her as a child, and wrote her letters on a regular basis. Hope hadn't been home for a long time though. She hadn't even seen her two sisters in a long time either. She and her sisters Faith and Charity were named for the three mountains in Sisters, Oregon. Will Hope be able to get along with her sisters, get through things that happened in the past that drove her away from her hometown and family ...more

I’ve been to Sisters, Oregon and it’s beautiful. I liked that I’ve seen the places that she mentioned. I enjoyed how the sisters resembled the mountain sisters. The story was also a good story but I discovered something about myself while reading this one. Romantic Christian fiction makes me mildly depressed and now I know why. A story (thanks DM) is about someone that wants something and overcomes conflict to get it. In romantic Christian fiction, that something they want is a meaningful life w ...more

I thought this book was very well written. It talks about the bonds of sisterhood and how those bonds can be tested by the actions of the sisters involved. While it is a Christian romance, it is not overly preachy. It is easy to identify with all of the sisters mentioned in the story and the situation that presents itself for one of them. We don't really get a connection with the story's hero, Lewis, as it is very much a story about the reconciliation of the sisters. This is my second time readi ...more

This book had the usual feel of Christian romance. Although there wasn't the usual constant mentioning of going to church like in most of this type of novel. This one had a long standing conflict among three sisters, that continued throughout the entire story. While I enjoyed the book, I think it wrapped everything up too quickly. I think most of these books work so hard to get a story written, and then quickly end it without it being realistic.

That being said, it was a sweet story and was a qu

At first this novel was hard to get into, especially since there was a lot of background that needed to be set up for when Hope, the middle of three sisters, inherits her aunt's entire estate. Where the book really shone was when Hope started bonding with her teenaged niece and nephew, who were some of the most well-drawn teenage characters I've read in a while. For the most part, the plot line flowed well, but some of the changing relationships between the sisters needed to be better establishe ...more

I enjoyed reading this book. Then I took a little drive over the mountains and stopped in Sisters Oregon picturing all the people in the book interacting and having lunch or sharing ice cream in the quaint little town. Thank you for sharing the book and the community of Sisters Oregon.

This book is an easy read. I was lulled into reading it because not only have I been to Sisters many times, but we actually considered moving there many years ago. This book is based on Christian believes but does not spoon-feed the reader with scripture. Thank you Carlson.

Once again, I really enjoyed this title in the Love Finds You series. As I have said before, I do not usually read Romance fiction, but I intend to read everyone of the books in this series because I really enjoy learning about the different geographical regions.

Fun Book to read because I lived near Sisters.
I keep thinking about all the places talked about.
I also loved how each of the sisters had something they needed to work on in their lives and blue it brought them closer together.

uplifting and positive. Although, I didn't like how after the major climax and everything erupts, all of the sudden, everything is perfect and they just have a wrap up chapter. Not an exciting ending, although it's a happy ending.

A typical chick-lit Melody Carlson book, that ends with me having a smile on my face. I really liked Hope, but man her sisters were a piece of work.
