Sisters in Love is the first story in a series by Melissa Foster. In this first installment we are introduced to Danica Snow, or Dr. Snow as we find out. She is a therapist helping her clients deal with a variety of sexual issues. But this isn't that type of story. No, this is the story of practical and good Danica and far too handsome Blake Carter. Despite the fact that their first encounter ends in bloodshed, Danica and Blake form a connection that is powerful enough to force them to reconsider their current lives. Throughout Sisters in Love, Foster introduces us to a host of other great characters including Danica's sister Kaylie (the "fun" one), Dave who is Blake's best friend, and Michelle, a young girl Danica spends time with as a 'big sister.'
Foster does a fantastic job of introducing characters that allow the reader a full glimpse into their lives, rather than just a snapshot that helps explain bizarre behavior. Through Kaylie, Blake, Michelle, Rusty, and Nancy, we learn a lot about what has shaped the lives of Danica and Blake and what will shape their lives in the future. The writing is simplistic in the best possible way, allowing the emotions and the moments to do the job instead. You can feel the pull of attraction between Blake and Danica without a lot of overly-descriptive paragraphs about just how connected they are and that made all the difference in this story. You want to squirm as Danica struggles to keep her thoughts strictly professional and you can tell just how searing Blake's gaze is, so that you might find yourself flushing with color.
If Sisters in Love is an indication of what to expect in this series, I can't wait to get to the next one! If you are expecting a series of miscommunications and drama before the big payoff, this is not the story for you, for this is the tale of true grown-up love.
