Publisher Description

After a painful divorce, Maisey Lazarow returns to Fairham, the small island off the North Carolina coast where she grew up. She goes there to heal—and to help her brother, Keith, a deeply troubled man who's asked her to come home. But she refuses to stay in the family house. The last person she wants to see is her wealthy, controlling mother. Instead, she finds herself living next door to someone else she'd prefer to avoid—Rafe Romero, the wild, reckless boy to whom she lost her virginity at sixteen. He's back on the island, and to her surprise, he's raising a young daughter alone. Then something even more disturbing happens. She discovers a box of photographs that evoke distant memories of a little girl, a child Keith remembers, too. Maisey believes the girl must've been their sister, but their mother claims there was no sister. Maisey's convinced that child existed. So where is she now?

"The Secret Sister is a good novel that kept me engaged and interested in the story line. It starts out slow, but hang in there, soon, you'll be unable to put it down. Part romance / part mystery / part reunion this book will appeal to anyone who enjoys believable, relatable characters with family secrets. Novak is a talented writer who incorporates drama, romance, mystery and intrigue very well. "

    " A good story. Sort of a mystery/romance. The reader did an excellent job voicing the female characters but I had to concentrate not to be distracted by the male characters sounding like a nerdy kid. Overall it is well worth listening to. "
