I received a digital copy of this ARC from NetGalley and Mira/Harlequin in exchange for an unbiased review.
3-1/2 stars I rounded up to 4, the writing and story structure were solid although somewhat wordy at times. Parts of the story seemed to drag before it all pulled together.
It can be lonely to feel like the odd one in your family. Sometimes difficult to grasp that your somehow don’t fit it. You ...more

This story barely held my interest to be honest. It was so wordy and wayyyy to drawn out. It was too long and could have been 75-100 pages less.
Family secrets and family relationships are at the core of this novel. There again was just too much going on in this novel and caught myself rolling my eyes wondering where the story was going. It didn't have enough punch to the max in this story. I was bored and wonde ...more

Thank you to the publisher, author, and NetGalley for the opportunity to preview the book.
Wendy was the perfect daughter with the handsome important husband and two adorable daughters. Ryan was the change-of-life younger sister who never quite lived up to her older sister. However, when Wendy calls Ryan for help, afraid she’ll be accused of murder, Ryan steps up, even more th ...more
Excellent family drama with a mystery and deep emotional secrets. I was intrigued by Ryan Gracey’s adventure into figuring out what is going on with her sister, Wendy who is on the run. Wendy has abandoned her family and only contacts Ryan sporadically. This is a family that is full of complicated issues and what you see on the surface is not what it really is. Well written, interesting characters, and thought provoking read. I enjoyed and recommend this story with mystery, fa ...more
A Family of Strangers by Emilie Richards. I've read past books by this author and enjoyed them and this book hasn't disappointed me. A drama with issues and secrets between family members. A fast paced roller coaster of a ride.

I liked the fleshed out characters, the plot and the setting.
I look forward to reading other books by this author.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
Ryan is an adventurous reporter who is summoned home to care for her perfect sister's children. After her arrival, she discovers that her sister is not the person that she thought she knew. Ryan also comes to a deeper understanding of her parents and her nieces.
Great storyline about family dynamics and the labels that we attach to ourselves and others.
I'm also excited about my recent series, Goddesses Anonymous, which started with One Mountain Away and was followed by So ...more
