About this ebook

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Daughters of the Bride comes the 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.

But Olivia’s return isn’t as triumphant as she pretends. Her job has no future, and ever since her dad sent her 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.

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?

Told with Mallery’s trademark heart and humor, the Tulip Sisters are in for the most colorful summer of their lives…

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.

Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery. It is a great book. It has multiple romances going on at once. Kelly and Griffin, Kelly's Sister Olivia and Sven, and Kelly's best friend Helen falls in love with her dad Jeff. Sisters Kelly and Olivia get to know each other after years apart. Kelly and Griffin relationship has ups and downs, but they fall in love and get married, Olivia and Sven are a great couple, and Helen falls in love with the much older Jeff who is Kelly and Olivia's dad. There are secrets and stuff that come out that make the book so much fun to read. I really recommend this book. there are other characters that cause problems but the couples work through their problems. This book was very good and I recommend to others to read if you want a great romance.
