"..but secrets don't remain secrets forever..."

 Well, wow. The Secret Sister is full of intensity that I did not fully expect. From the second chance romance that kept me asking for more to the nail biting mystery, The Secret Sister is perfect for every readers looking for an engaging and thrilling read.

 Maisey went home in chance of helping her troubled brother. What she didn't expect to wait for her though is a web of secrets that surrounds her family. And Rafe, who she didn't expect to interact with either. But Maisey must face all of this, not only for her own sake.. but also for the people she loves.

 Maisey was a delight to read and I enjoyed being in her head. She was far from perfect and she still make mistakes that can frustrate me so much and just makes me scratch my head but I adore how she's aware of it and owns her mistakes. Just like us, fictional characters commit mistakes too. And that's what I love about Novak's characters in The Secret Sisters. They never lose their authenticity in every page. Whether its rage, sadness or just their simple joy, every character's emotions just keeps rolling over at every page and their realness never get lost on me.

 Brenda Novak really impressed me by how she weaved the story of The Secret Sister. She kept me on my toes. She kept me guessing and engaged. Her writing really captured me from the first chapter and she really has her hold on me throughout the whole book. One more thing that needs to be praised is the very sweet and right-kind of-hot chemistry between Rafe and Maisey. It was undeniable. Its so hard not to root for them from the very first chapter even though each of them finds reason to fight it. Rafe's little girl was mixed in as well and I can't help but say that it is another reason why Rafe looks irresistible, not only to Maisey's eyes but to the readers as well.

 I can't wait for more from this series. The Secret Sister is an excellent opening to a series that I know will keep us on our toes. Although I had a fun time with Rafe and Maisey, I can help but be excited about Novak's new and upcoming characters. I highly recommend The Secret Sister for readers who wants to be impressed!
