WOW!! Sisters and Secrets was my first book by Jennifer Ryan. It definitely won't be my last.
This is a beautiful story of sisters coming together and apart to support each other and their families. Sierra has been dealt a hard set of events and decides she needs to return to the family home to regroup. Amy is the Pinterest mom who seems to have it all. Heather is the baby sister raising a baby on her own. When their worlds begin int ...more
The title of Jennifer Ryan’s most recent women’s fiction novel pretty much says it all. Sisters and Secrets explored the complicated relationship between three siblings, the things they were keeping from each other, and the life-changing consequences they faced because of it.
Oh what a tangled up mess Jennifer Ryan created for sisters Amy, Sierra, and Heather. I’ll warn in advance that there’s a lot I won’t be able to discuss where so much of the story ...more
Sisters and Secrets by Jennifer Ryan is about three sisters and the masks they wear to camouflage what is happening in their lives, the secrets they have, second chance at love, finding forgiveness, family, the realities of life and how we learn to handle what life gives us...
Sisters and Secrets is a family-driven women's fiction (ugh! that label--but until they give us another one...) with a strong romance subplot. It follows a shortish period of time (several weeks, I think? Though the last chapter takes us into the "months" category) in the lives of the three Silva sisters, Amy, Sierra, and Heather; though all three of them are POV characters, Sierra by far has the lion's share of the storyline. Other POV characters ...more

The title of the book, Sisters and Secrets, is quite apt. The story centers around three sisters (Amy, Sierra and Heather) and the, you guessed it, secrets they keep from one another though some secrets are much bigger than others.
I gave the book three stars because it is a good book but in my opinion failed to take th ...more

I have never read Jennifer Ryan before, but I was intrigued by the premise of this book, since it involved sisters and their complex dynamic with one another. While the relationships are intricate and a bit complex at first glance, as soon as I got the gist of it, I found myself becoming invested in the complex lives of these characters and how they interact with one another.
I really li ...more

Why is she suspicious of her husband?
Why would having her sister back raise questions about Heather's daughter?
I'm with Amy on this one.
Tell me David is not Heather's baby daddy.
I'm tired just hearing about Amy's life. Her poor kids need a vacation.
You snooze, you lose, Mason. But you would make a good dad.
Her sons are so cute. She should have taken a picture.
Heather is a little crazy.
Argh, I really want to know about the loan!
You promised you wouldn't kill ...more
