My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Miranda Blake is in her fifties and thought she had her life all sorted out, apart from being a bit klutzy, that is until her husband suddenly wants a divorce, her out of his life and their house within a couple of weeks while he is on a cruise they were meant to be going on together, talk about a bombshell! As he prepares to leave the house, she is equally panicked and angry, she hasn’t worked since she got married, she gave up things for him and he repays her by having an affair, but she does give him a piece of her mind, which he doesn’t expect, but the satisfaction for Miranda is just what she needed, until exhausted she collapses into the spare bed. The next morning, she wakes up feeling worse for wear, but better after a shower, until one of her best friends comes in, gun in hand and nearly shoots her when Miranda attacks her with a hairdryer, both are as surprised as the other but when Miranda explains the situation amid floods of tears and collapses into another exhausted sleep and wakes up with her other friends rallied around her and ready to help out any way that they can, including talking her through why they love her and giving her soon to be ex-husband the nickname of “Rat Bastard”.

As the deadline to leave her home advances, she gets some advice and more help from her friends as they talk about what needs to happen for the divorce to happen and then after packing up her belongings, they discover that they need to take her shopping as he owns everything, including the clothes on her back. As the impromptu shopping trip starts to slow down and the ladies hit Starbucks, they insist that she does a catwalk strut, but when she tries, her klutzy nature comes to the fore and her new heels get stuck in a hole in the sidewalk and she stumbles face first into the lap of an extremely handsome man, much to her embarrassment., but it proceeded to become a horror show when she used his sensitive parts as leverage when she tried to get up which led to her falling back on her rear end all over again. This incident doesn’t stop him from introducing himself, asking for her number and promptly asking her out to dinner the next day and yet again her friends rally round and help her to get ready for her first date in years. As the drink and conversation flow, they get on well and when she blurts out that she needs a job, he says he will see what he can do when he casually name drops that he has a brother who owns the company he also works for and when his brother goes past them and introduces himself, she is a little lost for words and at the end of the night, she doesn’t know which of the two she would prefer.

As the ladies gossip and demand the details from the date as they work on her resume so it is ready when he calls her a few days later and says that a position has opened up as an executive secretary and has set up an interview for her as he thinks that she will be perfect for the position and she does get it, as the lady she is replacing is about to give birth. As she is settling in to her new role, she overhears some conversation she isn’t overly happy about, but she isn’t in any position to challenge, or change, however, when the boss steps in and helps her out with it, she realises that she is going to have to figure out what shape the future is going to take and is asked to move to be his assistant when the one she has stepped in for returns after her maternity leave, this leads to her helping to organise an important fundraiser and while she is at the mall looking at things in person, she has to pop to the bathroom to avoid being caught while overhearing another conversation, however, when she comes out and tries to ignore the sales assistant hailing her, she runs into the boss whom she was just listening to, but her inability not to embarrass herself comes crashing in when she realises that she has been mooning the entire mall and while trying to put her clothing back into place, another unfortunate incident involving her underwear happens. Will Miranda ever be able to get through a situation without embarrassing or injuring herself, or will this nature be her undoing? Will she be able to get through the divorce without anything else getting in the way, or will disaster strike again and her choices be taken out of her hands? This is a romance in an unusual generation which makes it even more humorous as it is romantic and will keep you entertained all the way through and wanting to know more about the adventures of this group of friends at the end.

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is by Jacquie Biggar – Review by Makaela Patterson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed reading light hearted book rooted in deep emotions. This books has ups and downs, twists and turns, but I didn’t find it too emotionally heavy. It does make you realize life is too short to hold grudges, especially when it comes to family. It also gives you an in depth perspective of how strong a sisters bond could be. You will read this booking asking yourself could these sisters forgive each other? Was the hurt and pain just to much to mend fences. I think no matter if you have a sister, small or big family everyone has dealt with unpleasant situations in their family dynamic. I felt that is how the book is very relatable even if the topic at hand is different. I will say while reading this book you don’t know whether you want to scream or cry. You will find yourself rooting for a magical love story to blossom but I will let you read the book and find out about Levi. Happy reading.

The Sister Pact: Home Is Where The Heart Is, perfectly sums up this story. Jacquie Biggar sure knows how to pull at your heart strings. This was a heartwarming story, of family turmoil, resilience and redemption. I absolutely loved reading this book, it flowed so easily and took me a night to finish. Holly Tremaines character was witty, emotional and raw, definitely what I look for in a main character. I also love her Nephew Jacob, he was such a sweet little boy and came across very real. You won’t be disappointed with this book. Five stars for sure. I would 100% recommend this book.

This book follows the lives of two sisters who are trying to get back to the simple things and what’s important: A family bond. She’s eager to make amends with her past and an ex lover who seems to be the one who got away. This story teaches a lot about forgiveness, making amends, and sexual intrigue through this steamy yet interesting read. You won’t wanna put this book down as it teaches a lot about life, love and much more.

Sister Pact: Home is where the heart is by Jacquie Biggar
“Two sisters lose sight of what’s most important- family bonds.”

I loved this book! The story was easy to follow and well written the characters were great. I didn’t like that Steven cheated on Holly with her sister but hey we all make mistakes. Reading the beginning of the book how her parents treated her and the strained relationship with her sister kept a hold on me to want to keep reading to find out what was next! The flow of the story was so great I was able to follow the storyline and really enjoy the book. I look forward to reading more from Mrs. Biggar.

I loved dynamic between Holly and Levi. And the characters are set up beautifully. Holly heads home after an illness ends her music career early and seeing Levi again reminds her of their past…and her feelings. Feelings she tries to put on the back burner while she tries to fix her relationship with her sister Susan and Susan’s husband Steve. But those feelings along with family secrets cannot be hidden…or ignored. The family dynamic in this book is amazing!! It’s well written, well thought out, and fantastically full of feelings. A first by this author for me, but definitely not the last!!!

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is

by Jacquie Biggar

This story was such a sweet, heartwarming, romantic story that I wanted to read in one night. Holly is going home for the holidays and with that comes a lot of unresolved issues with her family, her sister, and Levi. Holly also has something important about her health to tell her family. I loved the characters and the different dynamics they bring to the story with their different personalities. Holly and Levi had a one night stand but neither have forgotten about that night. This book is about forgiveness, healing and family being there for each other. I love the way this author weaves a story that touches my heart. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading more from this author.
