Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl by Karen Booth [arc review]
This was a sweet read about the beautiful bond between sisters!
As sisters, they tell each other all their secrets...except one.
With divorce and infidelity hanging from nearly every branch of her family tree, Katherine Fuller sees no point in marriage. Boyfriends? Sure. Sex? Of course. Wedding vows? No, thanks. Still, when her younger sister Amy gets engaged, Katherine gathers all the enthusiasm she can. She won’t let Amy down. She’s done enough of that for a lifetime.
As the sisters embark on wedding plans, Katherine’s college love resurfaces. It nearly killed Katherine to part from sexy Irish musician Eamon more than a decade ago, but falling under his spell a second time forces her to confront everything she hid from him. The secrets surrounding her mother’s death are still fresh and raw in her mind, but one has haunted her more than the others. She can’t bear to tell anyone, especially not Amy. It could ruin far more than a wedding. It could destroy a sister’s love forever.
Secrets of a (somewhat) sunny girl is all about family relationships, specially the relationship between the sisters Katherine and Amy. These two have been through a lot and coming from a family were no marriage seems to work or last they have always been set on never getting married. That is until Amy meets someone that is willing to prove to her some marriages do last.
Katherine is petrified of losing her sister, of this guy hurting her, but she will also do anything to see her sister happy. And right now, that is smiling and pretending to be happy about the wedding.
A lot of drama unfolds as the story progresses. We slowly find out exactly what happened in these girls past, we meet their dad, their grandma, find out some pretty big family secrets....
While all this is happening we also get a glimpse of how great a guy Amy is marrying and a look at Katherine's past relationship. Her ex, the one she never told her sister about is in town and he wants to reconnect.
Although I really enjoyed this book it was more contemporary fiction than it was romance (and you guys know me by now, I almost only read romance and ya fantasy). So, it was a good book. A great book even! The way the relationship between the sisters was portrayed was great. It just wasn't what I usually read and because the romance was so overshadow by that I can't say that I loved it. There was almost no chemistry between the main female and male characters to speak off. This was a second chance romance with no spark...
