Kaylie Snow has always been the fun, flirty, pretty sister. Now her burgeoning baby bump, hormone-infused emotions, and faltering singing career are sending her into an unexpected identity crisis. Watching her older sister, Danica, glide through a major career change and a new relationship with the grace of a ballerina, Kaylie’s insecurities rise to the forefront—and her relationship with fiancé Chaz Crew is caught in the crossfire.
Chaz Crew has everything he’s ever wanted: a lovely fiancée, a baby on the way, and soon, the film festival he owns will host its biggest event ever. When he’s called away to woo the festival’s largest sponsor—and the lover he’s never admitted to having—secrets from his past turn his new life upside down.
With her baby shower around the corner and her fiancé’s big event looming, the pressure is on for Kaylie to pull herself together—and for Chaz to right his wrongs. In a few short weeks, the couple who had it all figured out will learn things about life and love that may change their minds—and their hearts.
SISTERS IN BLOOM is a testament to the bond of sisters, the strength of women, and the pains and delights that accompany motherhood. A book for every mother, sister, and daughter, SISTERS IN BLOOM will resonate with readers who love to explore family dramas.

The story picks up from somewhere near the end of the first book. Kaylie Snow is pregnant with Chaz Crew’s baby, and they are engaged to be married after Kaylie gives birth. Danica Snow is following her dreams of having a youth center, and she is in a good relationship with Blake Carter. But life is never really that simple.

Kaylie has always been carrying a lot of baggage because of her parents’ divorce. She finds it hard to trust any guy. And to add to that, she is very hormonal because of her pregnancy and she is experiencing a lot of insecurities from all the weight she is gaining and the downturn in her singing career. I know they’re pretty serious life dilemmas, but the way Kaylie and thought and dealt just made me laugh. Chaz, on the other hand, has a very pesky business sponsor who wants nothing but to seduce him. They both must deal with their personal conflicts in order to fully move on with their relationship. He was a really sweet guy who really cared for Kaylie.

I like that Danica was also shown a lot in this book, but I wish I could have seen Blake more too. Danica and Blake’s relationship in this book was a little disappointing for me when it came around halfway until the end. Blake was definitely a really sweet guy, but Danica was too hung up on taking care of her sister and other things.

I like how some of the characters in the first book, Sisters in Love, also showed up in this book, and had their own little side stories. And Melissa Foster also extended the series to include stories on other characters so I think that would be interesting.

**************************************************

OVERALL, Sisters in Bloom focuses on Kaylie and Danica’s relationships, careers, and personal insecurities. They both will learn to find themselves and really give love a chance despite of the bad example that their parents set for them. With two sweet and sexy men, as well as their trusty girlfriends, and a couple of other characters, Kaylie and Danica’s journey is definitely interesting, funny, and heartfelt. I’m excited to see the last installment for the Snow Sisters.
