The secret’s sisters keep- Sinead Moriarty

secrets.jpg

Amazon-Sinead Moriarty’s delicious tenth novel, The Secrets Sisters Keep, is the story of three sisters, three life-altering problems and one eternal truth: nobody knows you quite like a sister!

Sinead’s writing mixes the worldly wit of Jane Green with the down-to-earth warmth and insight of Marian Keyes and will remind people just how important their sisters – and their friends-who-are-like-sisters – are to them.

The Devlin sisters rely on each other – but some things are just too painful to share, even when your sisters are your best friends …

Mum-of-four Julie thought that if her family had more money, life would be easier. But now that they’ve inherited a fortune, her problems are only starting.

Lawyer Louise is used to having life go exactly as she wants it to. So accepting that she cannot control everything in her world is beyond her.

And former model Sophie can just about cope with getting older – that’s until her ex-husband finds a younger model.

All three women think that some battles are best fought alone. Maybe they need to think again.

MY REVIEW

This was a lovely book about a group of sisters who are all facing different stresses in every day life. Julie should be living the dream after coming into an inheritance and living in a beautiful house. She has trouble with the new mums at the school gate and misses her old friends. Her boys are very lively and cause no end of mishaps.
Sophie’s ex husband has just met a new girlfriend who has ‘wowed’ her little girl and she’s feeling down.
Louise has the ‘perfect’ little unit with her daughter Clara who is a child progedy- but everyone around her fears that she may need a little extra support to be able to mix socially.

The storyline around Aspergers was very well researched and dealt with sensitively. You can empathise with the mum struggling to accept that there may be a problem- but she soon takes on her ‘mummy tiger’ role and you know that she’s going to be the best advocate her daughter could ever ask for.
It’s a lovely book about friendships, family and relationships- and the heartbreak that can come with those. It’s very easy to lose yourself in and you will want to keep turning the pages, ignoring things like bedtime or mealtimes!
With many thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this one in exchange for an honest review.
