Publisher's Summary

After a painful divorce, Maisey Lazarow returns to Fairham, the small island off the North Carolina coast where she grew up. She goes there to heal - and to help her brother, Keith, a deeply troubled man who's asked her to come home. But she refuses to stay in the family house. The last person she wants to see is her wealthy, controlling mother. Instead she finds herself living next door to someone else she'd prefer to avoid - Rafe Romero, the wild, reckless boy to whom she lost her virginity at 16. He's back on the island, and, to her surprise, he's raising a young daughter alone. Then something even more disturbing happens. She discovers a box of photographs that evoke distant memories of a little girl, a child Keith remembers, too. Maisey believes the girl must've been their sister, but their mother claims there was no sister. Maisey's convinced that child existed. So where is she now?

Not Novak's Best but Still a Good Story

The beginning was a little slow to start but a couple hours in, I stated to get into the storyline. I really liked Rafe and his daughter. Also, loved the twist near the end. Did not see it coming.

The narrator was good with the female parts but all the men sounded obnoxious and angry (sorry).

Great story!

Swirling lies, temptations, and family disputes make this a Must-read for anyone looking for "the feels". I've been a lifelong fan of Novak, thanks to my mother's love of paperbacks, and she continues to impress me with her gift of prose. I grew up reading her paperbacks on family camping trips, after finishing my own supply of thrillers and mysteries. Secret Sister is a sordid family tale that ends with such a huge plot twist, I didn't see it coming. I loved the narration! I don't think I've ever heard this narrator before, and it cracks me up that we have a similar last name. I would totally recommend this to my friends and family, and already bought a copy for my mom, who loved it too!
