About this ebook

A New York Times Bestseller!

Told with Susan Mallery’s trademark heart and humor, this is a charming tale about the problem with secrets, the power of love and the unbreakable bond between sisters.

Kelly Murphy’s life as a tulip farmer is pretty routine—up at dawn, off to work, lather, rinse, repeat. But everything changes one sun-washed summer with two dramatic homecomings: Griffith Burnett, Tulpen Crossing’s prodigal son who’s set his sights on Kelly; and Olivia, her beautiful, wayward and, as far as Kelly is concerned, unwelcome sister. Tempted by Griffith, annoyed by Olivia, Kelly is overwhelmed by the secrets that were so easy to keep when she was alone.

Olivia’s return isn’t as triumphant as she pretends. Her job has no future, and ever since she was sent away from the bad boy she loved, she has felt cut off from her past. She’s determined to reclaim her man and her place in the family…whether her sister likes it or not. For ten years, she and Kelly have been strangers. Olivia will get by without her approval now.

But while Kelly and Olivia butt heads, their secrets tumble out in a big hot mess, revealing some truths that will change everything they thought they knew. Can they forgive each other—and themselves—and redefine what it means to be sisters?

Don't miss The Happiness Plan, a new novel coming from #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery where three women experience hope, heartache, and the power of friendship as they search for true happiness!

Mallery writes the intricacies of relationships better than anyone in the business. Secrets of the Tulip Sisters is the perfect read. The characters are so well developed and have fantastic, witty, emotional dialogue. This is a story that takes you through the entire spectrum of emotions and leaves you more than satisfied. This is one you will want to share with your best friends. I highly recommend this book to fans of the women's fiction and contemporary romance genres. I voluntarily read and reviewed a complementary copy of this novel.

If you like secrets and more secrets this is the perfect summer read. Three romances in one book, what more can you ask for but more secrets! This is a story that I started and could not put down, with twists that keeps you turning pages. Estranged sisters that are opposites from the word the go, reconnect after many years but will their secrets prevent this. Kelly works at the tulip farm, mundane life when Olivia returns home to reclaim her life. The men in their lives are the best, Griffith and Sven, I'm still in love! Kelly's best friend, Helen also has a secret romance, that will bring in more secrets. This is the perfect summer read with plenty of family dynamics and romance. I highly recommend this book by Susan Mallery!!
