About the Book
Andrea Thompson is smart, assertive and beautiful. She’s also desperately lonely. Raised in Europe by her grandmother, she struggles knowing neither of her parents wanted her, and she has no idea why.
When Andrea receives an urgent call from her older sister Carrie, she agrees to fly to the United States to help. Carrie’s newborn daughter Rachel needs a bone marrow transplant.
What Andrea doesn’t know is that her return to the United States will launch a chain of events that will uncover secrets hidden for decades. Secrets which will rock the Thompson family and ignite a political firestorm.
Secrets that some will kill to protect.
My Rating: 5 Stars
“Adelina Thompson and her daughters were likely in a great deal of danger.”
I’m still trying to catch my breath! I was so excited to read more of the lives of the Thompson Sisters. Julia’s story has always been my favorite but the others touched me deeply as well. BUT, I had no idea of the larger picture. There’s an entire story behind the girls: a web of lies, violence, conspiracy, and deceit at the highest levels of international government and intelligence. Through no fault of their own, the Thompson women and those they hold dearest are in very grave danger.
Sheehan-Miles writes mystery and suspense beyond anything I could have hoped for. (I know, where’s the romance?) Even without the stories of the sisters’ romances, there’s such intense and palpable emotion woven through every thread of the story. These women have endured such heartbreaking losses, difficult lives, complete family dysfunction, and yet remain as strong as they can. It’s clear they will need every ounce of that strength for what is to come.
I loved this book. The action is intense and heart-pounding, their are mysteries and surprises around each corner, it is expertly written, and there are the sisters: characters that I adore and feel close to. My heart has loved with them, hoped with them, broken with them, and felt loss with them. I’m so excited to share in the next chapter of their exciting journey. I’m already completely invested in this next chapter of their lives, and it seems this newest story, grander in scale than I could have imagined, is only just beginning.
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
