a book in review!

Brief Summary:

Sisters Gracie and Juliette Bennett, once the best of friends, have grown apart over the years, each following her own life's path. But with the passing of their beloved grandmother Mimi their paths intertwine in the most unexpected and peculiar way.

Gracie and Juliette are set to inherit Mimi's house--the charming Santa Barbara Craftsman, a family heirloom three generations old. But there's a catch. In order to inherit their home away from home the sisters must live at 1402 Laguna Lane for one year...together.

Now under one roof, Gracie and Juliette have a chance to reexamine their relationship and confront their pasts. Over the course of the trying year ahead they will learn that Mimi's clever plan is about more than preserving a piece of family history.

But will they overcome their differences, perhaps even become the kinds of friends only sisters can be? Loyalties will be tested and secrets revealed. And in their darkest hours Gracie and Juliette will have to decide if a sister's love is what they need to get through the year. If a unique friendship between sisters is what they've needed all along.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This story is told like you are right there with the characters as each moment unfolds. You feel like you are another sister to them as you learn about Grace and Juliette. I love writing styles that make you feel included. This book has it all starting with a great plot and a beautiful voice. It could very easily be made into a movie! I recommend this 4.5 star book to anyone in the mood for a great story that will leave you wanting to call your sister (or best friend), xo!
