Beazley has written a light-hearted and humorous but meaningful story around a modern day catastrophe and how it helped reunite a family and draw people closer together.

Cass is an ordinary mum with an ordinary life that doesn’t always go as planned as she struggles with who she is. I feel all mothers will relate to Cass on some level.
After the birth of her twin sons Cass decides children will not change the life she loves. So she struggles on with two boisterous growing boys in her tiny NYC flat

Ok, so here's the official description of the book:

Cassie and Sid Sunday, once as close as sisters could be, have drifted apart. Cassie’s struggling as a stay-at-home mother to twin toddlers in Manhattan, while Sid lives an expat’s life of leisure in far-off Singapore. It doesn’t help that Sid spurns social media while Cassie is addicted to her iPhone.

So when Sid suggests they reconnect the old-fashioned way—through real, handwritten letters—Cassie is on board. Intimate and honest, their corr

A plan to be pen-pals with your sister seems pretty harmless, right? In Lisa Beazley's new novel KEEP ME POSTED, that's exactly what Cassie and Sid thought too before the most personal secrets that they had disclosed to one another found their way onto the internet.

Better yet, they've gained an entire audience that is on the edge of their seats waiting to see what happens next.

Now, forced to figure out how to handle not only the sudden spotlight on their very personal lives, they've got to also

I really enjoyed this story of two sisters reconnecting with each other through letters. I found myself relating to this book a lot more than I expected. I remember the joy of getting a hand written letter even though it has been years if not decades since I received one. I am from a family of girls so the focus on the sisters really appealed to me. I was completely entertained by this story and once I really started reading it, I didn't want
Keep Me Posted was a cute, quick, and easy read.

It's about two sisters, Cassie and Sydney, who write letters to each other. Now I haven't written an actual letter since last year.. because my (ex)boyfriend was in the Air Force. Trust me.. it was weird. I had to like jam pack a whole months worth of information into one little letter. It was rough and I had lots of wine to help me cope with this dramatic experience.

It was nice to write a letter every now and then.. but it got way too confusing b

Cassie is stuck. She's a thirty-something stay-at-home mom with twin three-year old boys. Her marriage is...fine. Her husband, Leo, is solid and dependable and a wonderful partner, overall, but the passion is gone. Probably because, let's face it, Cassie's passion FOR LIFE is gone. She's bored and unchallenged. And bored. So when her sister, Sid, suggests that the two of them start hand-writing good ol' fashioned letters to each other, Cassie begrudgingly agrees. Their letter experiment unexpect ...more

Every woman struggles with feelings of insecurity and being able to reach out to your sister and just have that tight connection is very empowering and supportive. Something that we all wish for and the author did a great job in creating and building these two sisters with love and forgiveness that is full of hope for family.

I had a tough time getting through the beginning in the middle of this, due to the privacy issue, but the ending really made a difference for me and how I looked at this boo

I received an advanced reader's copy of Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley a few months ago and finally got around to reading it. This book is a fun chick-lit about two sisters in their late thirties who live on opposite sides of the world and decided to stay in touch the old fashion way by writing letters. I was very surprised to find that i really enjoyed it! I had low expectations for the book because the Goodreads rating for it was 3.65. I'm rating it a 4.3 out of 5 stars!

What it's all about...

This book is about sisters who are living far apart but trying to reunite and be as close as they were when they were in high school. One sister...Sid...doesn't do email so they decide to write to each other...using real letters...real snail mail letters. Cassie...the other sister...wants a way to preserve the letters so she sets up a private blog and scans all of their correspondence. However...of course...there is a computer glitch and the blog and letters go public.

When I started this book I was looking for an escape, sorta beachy read. I guess this could be consider that genre, but I just felt unsatisfied when I finished this book. Cassie, the main character, is so whiny that I felt I couldn't relate to her in anyway (and I am a stay at home mom as well). Sid, the other main character, was too perfect in my opinion...she never let anything faze her and when things didn't go her way she was able to move past it without so much as an anger thought.

Keep Me Posted is the first novel by American author, Lisa Beazley. One Christmas, Cassie and Sid Sunday decide they need to re-establish the close connection they had when they were growing up. Rather than regular communication by more modern means, they opt to write each other letters: the kind that need paper, pen, envelopes, stamps and a trip to the post box. What could go wrong?

Cassie (Cassandra Marie) Sunday is married to Leo Costa and they have twin three-year-old boys, Joey and Quinn. Le

I was given a free copy of this book by PenguinRandomHouse Canada for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. Overall a fun easy read. Cassie lives in NYC in a very tiny apartment with her husband and three year old twins. Her sister, Sid, lives in Singapore. Over Christmas, while chatting, they decide to start to write letters to each other (actual letters written on paper and mailed) so they can reconnect and be more involved in each other’s lives. They tell each other their secrets and ...more

This book was a really great light ready. I really connected and liked both of the main characters sisters Cas and Sid. I found myself agreeing and saying "Cassie gets it" when reading the letters she would write to Sid. Her everyday life struggles of being a stay at home mom to 2 young boys and mundane routine every couple falls into when the romance and spark dies out is something almost every woman feels and can connect with. Watching Cassie grow and improve as a mother and wife through out t ...more

Enjoyed this book very much! I always love books with letters, memories and family tradition dialogue. This one also touches on something very important in my personal life. Losing family to technology and social media. Great story and definitely recommended.

The story in this book is told through a combination of the main character's first-person account of the happenings, and a series of letters between her and her sister, Sid.

It's definitely quick and fun, and has moments of pure hilarity, and goes off as you would expect. The letters going viral on the internet happens about two-thirds of the way through the book; kind of odd for the main "bad thing" to happen so late. (But it wouldn't have worked if it had happened earlier.) This also reads lik

I loved this book!! Not only is it an entertaining page-turner, but it is full of insights on being a parent, sister, partner and friend in our modern day world. It explores the range of experiences of being a young mom and wife--from the cringeworthy to the hilarious to the heartwarming -- with honesty and humor. And it will make you want to hug your sister (and your spouse, for that matter) if you're lucky enough to have one. It might make you want to start a letter-writing ritual too -- I kno ...more

I loved this story! It captured my attention from the start, and I couldn't put it down. Two sisters living across the world from each other decide to start letter writing. There are heartfelt moments in the story and funny adventures throughout. It's amazing to me how drawn into the sister's lives I got. They are dealing with things with their marriages and children, and trying to work it all out through their letters. It's great how close they are and how they tell all in the letters.

Two Ohio-native sisters decide to bridge the geographic gap, one lives in NYC and the other in Singapore, by deciding, one Christmas, to keep in touch via snail mail. They hope to become closer and re-learn what the sister is about.
Cassie, the New Yorker, decides to keep copies for her posterity by scanning the letters (both those she sends and those she receives) onto her computer.
Since the bulk of the book is told from Cassie's perspective the reader is presented with a microcosm of New Yorker
NOTE: Received as an ARC from Netgalley.

I remember the fun of having pen pals as a kid and the excitement of getting letters in the mail. The author captured this feeling well, although I would have liked more about the pleasures of beautiful stationery, pens, and stationery stores (one of my weaknesses).

I love epistolary novels and enjoyed this one, but felt everything was wrapped up a bit too neatly, like a letter in a envelope.

I was quite taken by the cover and the description of the book , but a little less than half way through the book I had to stop because it just did not manage to hold my attention! While it claims to be a light read , it seems like the documentation of the random rambling of a struggling mother of toddler twins. . As much as I wished to connect to the character , they lacked depth and the aura to attract the reader..

I loved this book! The characters are relatable and the story line is unique. The author made the act of writing letters to keep in touch seem realistic and fun. I found myself always rooting for both sisters through their mistakes and struggles. I wish there was a sequel to see how the next chapter unfolds for them.

After reading this book I still wonder about a lot of things. I do think there was an important thing that was not mentioned in the story and because of that a big part of it is not possible. Or am I wrong?
I also think that you do not discuss those issues in a letter to a sister who lives miles away from you and you have to wait a long time before you get an answer back. I would say you wanted to offload right away and get some feedback.

On Christmas Eve, they make a pact to stay in touch the old-fashioned way – through handwritten letters. But of course, it all goes wrong, becau
