Granny used to say that the person who stirs the shit pile has to lick the spoon.
He made it in eight minutes and would have arrived there sooner if he hadn’t gotten behind a pokey old woman who didn’t have any place to go and a year to get there.
Did you think it was all rainbows and unicorn farts after you left? The only thing that changed was that I got all the bitchin’ instead of sharin’ it with you.
You can do better… He’s not for you, Aunt Tawny. He’s got a cat and he lives wi ...more

Unfortunately, I didn’t like it. And couldn’t finish it.
The three sisters (and daughter and other random people both male and female) were so similar it was confusing. There were no distinguishing characteristics. They talked the same. The acted the same.
Sure, the author told us that they were different - prissy, responsible, alchoholic - but then they acted and spoke the same.
To the point where 1/3 of the book in, I still had no clue which s ...more

But each one has baggage of her own, guilt and mistrust of the others unfortunately nurtured by their fractured family. She not only ...more
This is a beautiful book, which has many layers, and is deeply emotional - i.e. expect to need tissues. Even though the reason is clearly signposted, it makes it no easier to bear and big ugly tears were inevitable - for me at least!
It was a really clever way of giving us many stories in one and especially that of Annie and Zed. There were lovely little hints, such as the lack of a perfume smell in the room Dana takes o ...more
Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
Carolyn Brown writes sweet stories. I like to think she’s the Debbie Macomber of the South. When you pick up The Sometimes Sisters, you know you’re going to get a sweet tale with a little sadness along the way that will end with everyone meeting their true love match and knowing that they’re all going to be okay. Pure, simple fluff – and I’m glad I started out 2018 with s ...more
Omg Carolyn. For some reason I knew this book would become my favorite! Lord what a story. My heart hurts but is happy for the girls. It's a shame that our world can be so cruel but in the end love prevails. Trying not to say to much but it's hard not to. Happy reading and can't wait for the next book! ...more
