No one knows you quite like a sister…

When they’re running the animal-rescue farm they inherited from their grandparents, Autumn and Ember Somerset are perfectly in sync. At all other times, not so much. Dependable Autumn would rather curl up with a good book than paint the town red with Ember. After the disaster that was Autumn’s last relationship, it’s pure self-protectio

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Lori Foster’s The Somerset Girls was a book I dearly needed and I didn’t even realize it. I needed to be transported into a lovely, small town where despite gossiping busy bodies, there is a real sense of community. I needed to watch two sisters grow in their love for one another while helping each other through life changes. I needed to watch those sisters realize that despite their parent’s faults they were loved deeply by them. I needed to see a single dad vow to transform his young daughter’ ...more

I loved this story if these two sisters. I connected with Autumn her love of reading and working on the farm. I wished she was my sister. Sadie was so cute. The two romances were icing on the cake for me. This was a great light summer read. I highly recommend it.

Like the rest of the world, coping through this pandemic can be a little overwhelming for me. I was in desperate need of a read to lift my spirits. Just a book that would make me feel a little better, a little happier, a little safer. Thanks to The Somerset Girls, I got my escape with this feel good read full of lush writing and a full and loveable cast of characters.
I fell in love with sisters Autumn and Ember. Who wouldn’t love girls that ran an animal rescue? While completely different perso

"No one knows you quite like a sister"...
True, I suppose, but I don't have any sisters as I'm the only girl with all brothers so it's hard for me to wrap my mind around this comment.
I also had difficulty with this book as it didn't seem to stir up anything within me nor peak my interest.
It did flow well, it was well written, but it was missing that flavor that peaked into that next level for women's fiction.
The relationship between Autumn and Ember was unique during those long hot days in Kentuc

3 "That was easier than I expected." Stars

This book was a nice, summer-type read. Set on an animal rescue farm in the small town of Sunset, Kentucky, two very different sisters are working their respective ways to forever right along side each other. When an old crush and his spunky 7 year old daughter move back to town, Autumn Somerset gets the jolt she needs while Ember Somerset, her sister, finds some
This was a cute and heartwarming read! I enjoyed reading about Ember and Autumns story on their journey of finding love and happiness. However, this wasn’t really anything special! The relationships were underdeveloped and the storylines were rushed especially near the end. However, I adored the relationship between the sisters. The sisterhood and the bond that they shared was truly special. I also loved the relationship that Autumn formed with the hero’s daughter.

I am not sure what everyone else read, but I read a very different book. I did not enjoy any of it. Okay, I loved the little girl and the animal rescue, but the rest... not at all. I even had to stop listening at times. I got to chapter 7 and wanted to throw my phone on the ground and stomp it into a million pieces. Most people in this book are not likable. Not even a little bit. Autumn is sweet and kind, but needs some self confidence and a backbone. She just sits back and lets life happen and ...more

This was a charming read! Family and relationship dynamics are always fascinating to me and I loved seeing the similarities/contrasts with sisters, Ember and Autumn. Mike and Tash, respectively, were perfect romantic matches for Ember and Autumn, although I felt Ember and Mike’s relationship was put in for an easy wrap-up to their ending. It was Tash’s daughter, Sadie, however, who stole my heart and the show! Her innocent love and appreciation of little things warmed the heart and her

*I received a free copy of The Somerset Girls. This has in no way influenced my review which is honest and unbiased.*

I truly enjoyed getting to know Autumn and Ember - and while I'm usually a little indifferent to stories that follow two couples, it worked really well here!
I got the sisters and how supportive they were towards each other, and I loved both that and them. The romance was also very well done, and I got enough time with each of the couples, so I didn't feel like one of them

THE SOMERSET GIRLS by Lori Foster is a contemporary, adult, erotic, romance story line focusing on the Somerset sisters, and the men with whom they will fall in love: interior designer/animal rescue operator Autumn Somerset and single father / advertising executive Tash Ducker; and builder Ember Somerset and farm hand Mike Brewer.

Told from several third person perspectives THE SOMERSET GIRLS follows Autumn Somerset as she comes face to face with her high school crush Tash Ducker upon his return

Sisters Autumn and Ember Somerset work together, live side-by-side in a duplex-style home, and hang out together in their free time. Autumn is a designer, Ember is a builder. Both sisters also run an animal rescue on their family farm, which they inherited from their grandparents.

Each sister has her own romance storyline, and I think they're really good. There is a low amount of angst and the love interests are respectful of Autumn and Ember, which I think is super swoony. One of the love

The Somerset Girls is a light, easy, read- perfect for a lazy weekend afternoon. Although my sister and I no longer have a relationship, it’s nice to read about ones like Autumn and Ember- opposites who may not agree on everything but are always there for each other, no matter what. I liked the way they bantered, but still had the other’s back when needed- especially Ember. She didn’t hold back when it came to wanting Autumn to step out of her comfort zone, but she was also the first one the

I have to admit, that lately, I have been feeling restless and just can't settle my mind enough for anything. Given what has been going on lately, I know I'm not alone. One thing I have been craving is a really feel good story that makes my heart sing. The Somerset Girls hit the spot. I am trying to find the words to say how much I loved this book and how much I needed this book. On the surface, it's a simple story about two sisters finding the loves of their lives.

With a small-town feel following two sisters and their inherited animal rescue farm, this one had such a cozy vibe. I absolutely loved the sisterly bond between Autumn and Ember. Despite being complete opposites and receiving unnecessary comparisons from family, their relationship remained strong.

Being so different from each other, I loved how this was reflected in each of their developing romances. With a friends-to-lovers situation between Ember and Mike, longtime employee of the farm, PLUS Au

Lori Foster's newest release  The Somerset Girls is a feel-good story about two sisters who find their HEA afters with two hunky men.

Autumn is the older of the two sisters and she's the shy one. She was cheated on by her ex-fiance weeks before their wedding. Afterward, she swore off men.  Until Tash (I really disliked this name. I kept changing it to Dash when I was reading because Tash made me think of Trish a female name) her teenage crush comes back to town. Tash is back in town because he ne

The Somerset Girls is, simply put, amazing. Lori Foster combined the feel of women’s fiction and contemporary romance to make this a touching novel that is definitely keeper shelf material.

Being a long-time fan of Lori Foster’s work, I was more than ready for a new story of hers to lose myself in. And from page one I was hooked. Autumn and Ember had the quintessential sisterly bond we all probably think of, but with some fun twists. They bick

Autumn and Ember run an animal rescue farm. They bring in animals that have been abused. Care for them, and hopefully find them forever homes.
At first Ember made me a little upset at how she spoke to her sister Autumn. Soon though, once I heard her story and got to know her better, I liked her a lot. She wasn't trying to be mean, in fact she was trying to be helpful. Mike, the hot guy who had been working on the farm, teased her constantly and was a thorn in her side and starred in her dreams, p

The Somerset Girls was an utterly delightful summer surprise. Lori Foster outdid herself with this contemporary romance. It was so much fun and super cute with a much-needed, perfectly positive vibe.

The Somerset Girls featured a dynamic sisterly duo, and I totally admired their close friendship, despite their differences. I respected the strong female characters, the adorable, quirky animals, and the understanding, kind-hearted male counterparts. I also found the mother in the story absurdly en

The two sisters are running the animal-rescue farm they inherited from their grandparents, Autumn and Ember Somerset are perfectly in sync but yet so different. Autumn would rather curl up with a good book (that's me) and Ember is a free spirit.

I don’t like to read reviews that tell all about the story. To learn that read the synopsis or download a sample, then if you liked what you read, buy the book. This story has a lot of emotion and brought home many memories of my life.
To me a review is 6 things and I have written my response to each item:
(1) how well it was written, ----- great story line, very emotional.

I enjoyed the relationship between the sisters, Autumn and Ember. Their farm for rescued animals is a clever subplot. I liked how they joined forces for a common goal (caring for their parents as well as the animals) yet the story also highlighted their distinct personalities and attitudes. This novel combines elements of women's fiction as well as romance. Mike and Tash are two very different men and the author did a nice job structuring both romances and carrying all four characters on interes ...more

My Thoughts:

The Somerset Girls by Lori Foster was a charming second chance romance. It was the story of two very different, but extremely close and loyal sisters. We get two delightful romances in this book, as well as such a touching story with family as a focus, and extra emphasis on sisterhood.

Thirty-two year old Autumn Somerset was jilted at the alter three years ago. Since then, she's sworn off men, and instead indulges in books and ice cream. Younger sister, Ember Somerset is known for bei

The Somerset Girls by Lori Foster

Sisters are special
They care and share
And sometimes run a business or two together
They lend a shoulder to lean on
They give advice
They share details of this and that and
They fight from time to time
No matter what…they are there for one another

I adored Autumn and Ember and loved reading the story of how both found their happily ever after. This was a story filled love, compassion, heartbreak, heart healing, family, animals and romance that lead to love.
