This is the second book in the Snow Sisters trilogy which really would be best when read in order. This book picks up shortly after the events of the previous book and focuses on the same group of characters. I thought that it was kind of fun to watch these two couples move on to the next stage of their relationships. I found this to be a very enjoyable listen. Kaylie and Chaz are very much in love as they await the birth of their baby. It has taken a lot fo these two to get to this point and they still have a few obstacles to overcome. Kaylie not only has the pregnancy to deal with but she is also finding it to be increasingly difficult to book new performances. Chaz has a few issues to deal with as well including one old flame determined to make things difficult. I really liked Kaylie and Chaz together. Neither character was perfect but they seemed to fit together very well. I really enjoyed getting to see them learn to open up to each other and be honest. I never doubted how much they cared for each other at any time during the story and it was great to see everything come together. Danika and Blake were also great in this book and I thought that the progression of their romance was equally important to the overall story. B.J. Harrison did a fantastic job with this story. I thought that he handled all of the different character voices extremely well. I thought that he added a lot of excitement and emotion to the story. I found his voice to be very pleasant and I believe that his narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story. I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a very well done contemporary romance filled with characters that I cared about. I cannot wait to continue with the series! I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.

    4 "Life Changes" Stars for the story and narration. In the continuation of the Snow sisters story about navigating love and their careers, in Sisters in Bloom, Ms. Foster delivers another book that is sure to entice women's fiction lovers. Please note though, that this title builds on the story of the Snow sisters that Ms. Foster shared with us in Book 1, Sisters in Love, and therefore should only be listened to after that title in order to understand the entire background. Whereas Sisters in Love 4 "Life Changes" Stars for the story and narration. In the continuation of the Snow sisters story about navigating love and their careers, in Sisters in Bloom, Ms. Foster delivers another book that is sure to entice women's fiction lovers. Please note though, that this title builds on the story of the Snow sisters that Ms. Foster shared with us in Book 1, Sisters in Love, and therefore should only be listened to after that title in order to understand the entire background. Whereas Sisters in Love focused on therapist, Danica Snow's and Blake Carter's love life, the primary heroine and hero in Book 2, Sisters in Bloom, is Danica's singer, sister, Kaylie Snow, and her fiance, Chaz Crew. However, for those of you that loved Danica and Blake, do not fret, as they still play a crucial role, and their relationship and the conflicts they must navigate along the way, continue to play a strong secondary role in this book. Kaylie Snow is used to enjoying life and being the life of the party. Having become comfortable in her role as the more carefree sister and her career as a singer, the impending birth of her first (unplanned) child is causing her to reevaluate her priorities and what she expects from her life. The fact that the clubs who used to book her singing gigs, now also refuse to hire her (both now while pregnant and even more alarming after the baby's arrival) is further complicating Kaylie's ability to process just what her next stage in life will look like. Additionally, having a serious relationship for the first time in her life--one which was precipitated or at least sped along by her unplanned pregnancy--is causing its own strain as Kaylie and Chaz try to settle into a different stage of their relationship. Further complicating matters is a rather determined ex-hook up of Chaz's who also happens to have a tie-in to his career. As a film festival producer, Chaz has to entertain the festival's sponsors. Unfortunately for Chaz, his old flame is used to getting her way and is determined to have Chaz back in her bed. Furthermore the fact that the old flame also happens to be one of his upcoming film festival's largest sponsors makes her impossible to ignore. Therefore although Chaz is equally committed to seeing her gone, her ability to influence his business is making this a rather delicate situation that requires that he interact with her without falling into her web. Meanwhile Danica in an effort to support her sister has big news of her own, but doesn't feel like she can move on with her life while her sister is going through such a difficult time. Will Kaylie be able to sleuth the mystery of her current profession and personal identity crisis? Just what direction will her future career and relationship take? Moreover, will Chaz be able to steer the murky waters created by his former lover and current business partner and remain faithful to Kaylie? Lastly, will Danica be able to comfortably pursue her HEA when her sister's life is in such turmoil? Surprisingly, for a story based on the lives of sisters, male narrator BJ Harrison manages to render a compelling narration of Sisters in Bloom. Mr. Harrison has a smooth, melodic voice that entrances the listener. Although he doesn't provide a lot of differentiation between his male and female characters, I generally had no trouble following this story, and felt that Mr. Harrison did a good job of maintaining consistency of voices across the two books. All in all, if you're looking for a story about the quandaries of motherhood, and identity crisis that many of us inevitably go through when we face life changing events in our lives--like the birth of a first child, career changes or struggles, and marriage--Sisters in Bloom is sure to be a story that women fiction lovers can identify with.

    I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one. Danica and Blake are part of this story, so we do get to continue their story. I have to say I didn't really care for Danica in this one. She was written terribly. Total pushover who caters to everyone but herself. And she certainly lives in her sister's shadow. Kaylie's character was so over the top and unbelievable. She really was portrayed as a shallow and self-centered and self-obsessed character. She wasn't likable. Not even from the first I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one.

She had no redeeming qualities throughout the entire story. I don't know if there was anything that could have been done to make her a better character. Let's face it, it's Kaylie's world, and everybody else just lives in it. I felt extremely sorry for Chaz. And Blake. They each had their own sister to deal with and there was just no relief for either of them. Danica was too busy trying to pacify Kaylie and unable to move on with her life with Blake and Kaylie was too busy worrying about herself that she couldn't see or just didn't care how horribly she was treating the people around her. People who genuinely loved and cared for her. It was always about her. This book was definite let down.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Oh how to review this book? Foster is a great writer, so I'm giving it a three star review, but honestly, I hated how Kaylie evolved in this book. She's self-absorbed, spoiled, immature, and generally uninteresting. I actually skipped several sections that were all about her angst fest. Where's spirited Danica? Where are the interesting characters? Tell me more about Max. I want to hear about Gage and Sally.

I do not care about Kaylie angsting over her dress size. There's a subplot about a power-hungry, somewhat sadistic woman that goes nowhere. And I think that my biggest complaint is that the dramatic action continues only because the characters are their own worst enemies. Danica won't marry Blake until she knows Kaylie is happy? Chaz won't tell Kaylie about the old fling with Lea until Kaylie has found out and decides to "leave" him? These people are the authors of their own unhappiness. I'm likely to read the next book in hopes that Danica gets her crap together and is actually fun again. I miss her, but Kaylie can just find another place to be as far as I'm concerned.

    I enjoyed this book a lot more than book 1. I thought going in that it was going to be more about Kaylie and less about Danica but each had equal billing really. Kaylie is now 8 months pregnant and living with Chaz. They’ve decided on waiting to get married until after the baby comes and have also decided to wait to find out what the sex of the baby is, this makes quite the surprise ending. (Danica has taken to calling the baby “Evil Spawn” which I found quite humorous. In this book Kaylie is up I enjoyed this book a lot more than book 1.

They’ve decided on waiting to get married until after the baby comes and have also decided to wait to find out what the sex of the baby is, this makes quite the surprise ending. (Danica has taken to calling the baby “Evil Spawn” which I found quite humorous. In this book Kaylie is upset because she can no longer get singing gigs and believes that it’s because she’s so big. Chaz is having problems of his own with festival funding sponsors and gets called away to try and fix things. However an old flame from the past has now come back to haunt him and it’s one drama after the other for both of them. Danica has given up her practice and has started the youth center that she had always wanted to. She’s not technically living with Blake yet because she’s afraid of letting go of her safety net which is her apartment even though she’s never there. Her drama wasn’t as bad as Kaylie and Chaz’s but it was still there. I did like Danica more in this book more than I did book 1 though. Blake, WOW! He was swoon worthy in this book! The perfect boyfriend. He supported Danica and never once faltered nor did he pressure her in any way over anything that happened. Gone was the player of the past. He was just perfect in every way!!! I absolutely LOVED him!!!!! As I said this book was better than book 1 and the only way thing that kept me from giving it a higher rating was all of the drama. The book was filled with it and while I don’t want everything to be perfect by any means since that would make the book boring, I just felt that some of it was overkill. Onto the next book in the series which is called Sister in White. This book is already out and only $3.99 on Amazon.

    This one...just as the first in the series...something was missing. Substance maybe? Kaylie is nearing the end of her pregnancy and she has always been the fun and flirty sister and now she is the emotional and hormone laden and mean sister.

I'm glad I had this in audio because I do not think I would have finished reading it, it would have irritated me too much, but listening to it had me wanting to know how it was going to resolve. There are quite a few other secondary stories to add to the fun.

    Sisters in Bloom (Story Sisters #2) focuses on Kaylie, but there is so much more to this book. I loved all the scenes where we catch up with Danica and many other characters. Even though it can definitely be read as a standalone (as can all of the books by this author that I’ve read so far) these Snow Sisters stories read more like a connected series. I love that with the overlap of storylines in this series we really get to watch so much growth with these characters.

You can see why they wont but it doesn't make Kaylie feel any better.  We see how miscommunication between her and Chaz almost ruin their relationship when a sponsor tried to break them up. This was a great story and cant wait to read more from Danica and Kaylie in book three.   The Narration: BJ Harrison is back and narrating this instalment of the Snow Sisters books, I have got used to his voice and his female characters now that it made this a nice smooth listen.

    What can I say besides I'm addicted? I'm totally hooked on these books. It's been awhile since I've read "chick lit" or romance books. I've forgotten how evjoyable they can be. The only negative, which really isn't, is that once you get started you won't want to put it down. So much so that I don't know if you should get it now or wait for all of the books to come out.

I'm totally hooked on these books. It's been awhile since I've read "chick lit" or romance books. I've forgotten how evjoyable they can be. The only negative, which really isn't, is that once you get started you won't want to put it down. So much so that I don't know if you should get it now or wait for all of the books to come out. I really can't wait for the rest of the books. Just like Sisters in Love this book touched me emotionally. The girls, mainly Danica, reminds me of myself at times, and at other times my mom. The book is not only romance. It is also about relationships, mother/daughter, sister/sister, etc. For those of us that have had rocky times/relationships, this book will resonate with you.and have you rethinking your viewpoint of events. I love the following part when Danica's mother is talking to her. "It was my place to raise you, and to make sure you turned out okay, or at least give you every opportunity to do so. But it's not your job to love me for it, or to even like me as a person." This is so true and I wish others felt the same way. If they did, we might not have all the problems we have with kids. It is a parent's job to be a parent not a friend. If you are lucky you will end up with being both. It is kind of funny because I've always told my kids they don't have to like me. In fact, you probably know you are a good parent if your kids don't like you at some point. Well, enough of my soap box. This book is kind of like therapy, well, at least it was for me. I've kind of had some of the same problem with my parents. It has helped me see things in a different light, from another viewpoint. I love how Kaylie's doctor puts it. "therapy isn't about giving you the answers. Therapy is about finding the answers within yourself. I just help you find the right path." This is exactly what this book does for me at times. Don't get me wrong this isn't a "therapy book". It is a book about relationships, romance. Any book that ha you genuinly caring about the characters is a good book. One that makes you reflect on your life is even better. While this book is mainly for women, men might learn something, especially if their wife or girlfriend is pregnant. This is a great book. I'm sure most people will enjoy it. Parents need to be aware that there are sexually explicit passages. Like I said before, the only thing that will disappoint you is that you have to wait for the next book. Thankfully, there is a new book in the series each month for the next few months. I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

Once again Foster has delivered an enthralling tale that is beautifully written! We’re back in Allure, Colorado a few months after the first novel. I was impressed immediately with the smooth transition from Danica’s story to Kaylie’s. The author does an outstanding job of implementing a recap as an internal part of the story instead of an appendage. It was nice to see how the people introduced before weathered the time that had passed, and intriguing to watch as they were strategically placed in the story line. My mind raced as several possible “hookups” and “hiccups” flashed before my eyes. There seemed to be a bit more resentment between Danica and Kaylie at times, for they made quite a few snippy comments towards and about one another. This fact stood out not because of the vocal expression alone, but from the thoughts that crossed their minds as well. Sisters will be bicker, however, and this added a touch of realism to the characters. Kaylie is a little more erratic, self-centered, and insecure than normal due to her pregnancy. I can understand the hormones, but her emotions were jerking from one extreme to the other so quickly, I felt like I was going to get whiplash. Poor Chaz! He’s such an endearing hotty with the patience of a saint! Their situation is so familiar, I felt obliged to pull for them and they really fit somehow. Danica and Blake still have a few wrinkles to iron out, but they also still have that fiery passion! She still fights the urge to play the therapist in most situations, but there’s call for her former self to speak up in this book. Blake’s fortitude is pushed a little, which was frustrating, but I’m partial to this sexy character. Foster has a unique gift of taking a plethora of situations and turning them into one extraordinary story. I like the fact that steamy situations didn’t stop due to pregnancy, but the thought of a “pregnancy thong” sent a shiver up my spine. There’s a dark twist, new beginnings, and a surprise ending that filled me with elation. The sneak peak of the third installment at the end has me dancing on my tippy toes! I love this series!

Not a particularly introspective character, all of these changes have Kylie worried about EVERYTHING, and the doubts are creeping in. Chaz has a big film festival coming up, and he thinks his life is going along beautifully. Nothing is better than his fiancée and new baby on the way, and this film could mean big things for them all. But the one regret in his life has suddenly reappeared, and the existence of this woman isn’t something he ever shared with her. Now with Kylie at a low point, a past fling that won’t stay that way and the stress and nerves around the film festival and things are just heating up. Foster uses a combination of character development, communication and fears that are very real, if sometimes groundless, to build the story and give it teeth. Chaz is a wonderful and steady influence for Kylie, and while their love is obvious they both cling to insecurities and issues from their pasts. Insets from Danica (Kylie’s sister) and her relationship trials in her own life, and the visit from her mother all play to the issues both of the sisters have in their own lives. Issues that their mother’s influence (and some actual common sense) allow them to move forward in their own lives, allowing the past to settle. Narration is provided by B.J. Harrison, and as I thought with the first in this series, a clever choice of narrator. There is a bit more angst and tension in this story, and Harrison’s ability to present the emotional overtones in the story without overreach or overacting. While character voices are distinct, they do not tip over the line to caricature or overly emoted, and the story is richer for that. A great installment in the Snow Sisters series, I’m curious to get to the weddings.. I received an audiobook copy of the title from the publisher for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility. This review was originally posted on I am, Indeed

Wild sister Kaylie is the blooming one. While Danica, Blake and Chaz undoubtedly play their parts in this novel, the story is Kaylie’s as she faces a changing world. After working her way up the ladder of a blooming musical career, pregnant Kaylie now faces the danger of losing everything she’s hoped for. Rejection slips mount, and the failure they promise is only compounded by hormonal irrationality, plus a nagging feeling that she’ll never live up to her uber-successful sister. While others try to help her, and wondrous Chaz stays true, circumstances and misunderstandings conspire to keep Kaylie’s path tortuously uncertain. Meanwhile Danika’s proving better at solving other people’s problems than her own, and the wounds of the past threaten to damage her hopes for the future too. Love interests Blake and Chaz, and a circle of friends whose backstories wait to be told, all gather around while an evil ex-girlfriend plots in the eaves. Sisters in Bloom tells the trials and tribulations of pregnancy convincingly and well, from hormonal overload to pregnant lovemaking, all the way to childbirth. Meanwhile the trials of love and miscommunication continue as couples destined for each other deal with the mysteries of their different pasts. Some characters beg for more story time to themselves, and I hope the author will continue and tell their tales in later volumes. Meanwhile, this novel ends on a high-note of enjoyable completion, with one set of problems safely resolved, lives reordered, and many joys to come. Disclosure: I received a free eARC of this novel with a request for my honest review.

It’s easy to see her parent’s marriage and divorce affected both Danica and Kaylie but Kaylie has not gotten over it. I enjoyed watching Kaylie grow and mature in this book because she did not want her baby to have the same hang-up’s she did. Chaz is in love with Kaylie, head over heels in love. He is will to put up with all her neurotic mood swings. He is the perfect man for Kaylie. He has everything he wants in life. However, Chaz’s only problem is a woman from a few years ago wants back in his life and to keep her out he has to tell a secret that he does not tell many. Overall, this was a wonderfully told story. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see what happens next. I love that no matter how tough life gets Kaylie and Danica still are friends as well as sister. Each is there for the other no matter what.

Sometimes in series, the following books don’t always live up to the first, or distract from the story you initially fell in love with, but fear not, SIB is the perfect sequel! This installment focuses more on the story of Kaylie and Chaz, which I was happy about, I was happy that Danica and Blake remained prevalent in the book, so that the reader gets to see the continuation of their story and gets answers to all the lingering questions. Foster does an excellent job at weaving the lives of the two sisters and two couples into a seamless story. One thing I absolutely adored was that there wasn’t a lengthy wait time between the release of he first story and this one. Nothing is more torturous that getting hooked on a good storyline and then having to wait an eternity for the next installment! Although In the beginning of the story, Kaylie is still the bratty, self centered character from the first novel, Foster does a remarkable job of making her likeable despite this, and gives us deeper incite into why, so we better understand her character and appreciate her growth. I was thrilled to be asked again to review this sequel after having adored the first book, Sisters in Love.

I was glad to see where the sisters had gone after leaving book one, but I wasn't as enraptured by it as I was the first. Nonetheless, it's a beautiful story of love and life, and I think all romance lovers will enjoy this book! **I received an ARC from the copy for an honest, not necessarily good, review.**

    This book was another fun read overall. I have to admit I wasn't sure I would like Kaylie's story. In Sisters in Love she seemed a little selfish and flaky. In the beginning of Sisters in Bloom she still seems like a spoiled drama queen at first. But as she comes to terms with what being in a committed relationship and motherhood means Kaylie grows. By the end I truly came to love and admire her. In fact, near the end it was Danica who got a little frustrating. Even though this is mainly Kaylie This book was another fun read overall.

Even though this is mainly Kaylie and Chaz's story, the other characters I came to care for in the first book, had their stories continue to move forward in this one. Melissa Foster develops the lives of her characters in a very satisfying and realistic way. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. I was given an advanced readers copy of Sisters in Bloom in exchange for an honest review.

    Kaylee certainly shines in this segment of the series. We are given much more insight to who really is. With all the events taking place in her life she really comes out with flying colors. There were occasions that her inability to just handle things weakened my faith in her though. A little too much rollercoaster emotion from this character.

    Another quick and easy read. I enjoyed the realism of Kaylie's pregnancy. The irrational mood swings. I've seen other reviews calling her a brat and childish, but I remember being pregnant and not being able to control the thoughts and emotions. I liked that the author had Kaylie wondering why she was acting that way and not being able to stop certain things from coming out of her mouth. I'd bet a lot of pregnant women have the same problems. All in all, if you enjoyed the first book you will enj Another quick and easy read. I enjoyed the realism of Kaylie's pregnancy.

    I'm a bit torn while writing this review. I found this book well written but the storyline lacking. The main female character drove me a bit nuts! I guess I like my female characters stronger with more character than the one in this book. Not a bad read but it took patience for me to finish it. I'm a bit torn while writing this review.

    I wasn't a big fan of the second sister--I found her annoying and self-centered. I stopped reading the book once, but then picked it up again to see if she improved at second glance--she didn't.

    This is a review of the audiobook version of this book. Sisters in Bloom is largely the story of Kaylie Snow who is 8 months pregnant worried about her burgeoning weight, her flagging singing career, doubting Chaz, her fiancée’s, fidelity, and trying desperately not to turn into her mother.

Sisters in Bloom is largely the story of Kaylie Snow who is 8 months pregnant worried about her burgeoning weight, her flagging singing career, doubting Chaz, her fiancée’s, fidelity, and trying desperately not to turn into her mother. Having always been the free-spirited, fun-loving, pretty girl, Kaylie is experiencing many of the self-doubts experienced by new mothers to be. At the same time her sister Danica is faced with decisions to make about her relationship with her boyfriend, Blake. The arrival of their mother, who has undergone changes of her own, results in challenges and introspection from both sisters. Add in side stories of other characters in the Snow Sister’s orbit and there is more than enough drama to go around. As is her style, Melissa Foster writes complex multi-layered books that tend to center on relationships and character growth with romance as more of a vehicle for the characters to learn and grow. While it had its steamy moments, this book was particularly emotional with the over-the-top emotions and angst raging in Kaylie. I finished this book feeling rather battered and overwhelmed by the intense emotions. I found Kaylie to be very self-centered and self-absorbed. More worried about being pretty and thin after her baby is born, whining about a drop off in her singing gigs and constantly carrying on about not wanting to turn into her mother (who she perceived as being weak because she stayed with their father in spite of his infidelity). I really did not like her as a person and often just wanted to slap her and tell her to grow up. I disliked her almost hatred of her mother, when I felt she should be supporting her mom and seeing how she did what she did for her girls. Kaylie’s lack of self-awareness was consistent with her self-centeredness. Several times during the book she would say to herself that she was not that person that did X, Y or Z and I practically laughed out loud thinking, “Oh yeah, that is you exactly, honey.” The way that Danica constantly put her own happiness on hold or had it take a back seat to Kaylie’s drama also drove me nuts. Fortunately, Kaylie seeks out help in sorting out her emotions and gaining more self-awareness. By the end of the book, she was beginning to make amends with her mother and started to dial back the self-centeredness. I don’t think I will ever like her, but she became a more likeable person. Danica, who we met in the first Snow Sisters book, has grown with her relationship with Blake and continues to grow in this book as she deals with her sisters’ drama as well as that of friends and co-workers at her new community center. I look forward to seeing the stories of many of the secondary characters evolve in future books. I like that the author tackles real-life topics (such as a woman’s doubts and career fears when pregnant) and has her characters learn and grow over the course of the book. B. J. Harrison did his usual remarkable job with the narration. His smooth voice is easy to listen to and he voices each character very effectively. I will look for him in other series. ***I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my own, unbiased review.***

This is the second audio I’ve listened to by Mr. Harrison and I’m afraid once I move on to another narrator I’m going to miss him dreadfully! He brings so much life to these characters, highlighting their highs and lows both male and female just by a small switch in his voice. Very well done with nothing that triggers my annoyance button.

We got to see a lot of Kaylie in book one of the series but this time around we get to really see what’s going on with her not only with the pregnancy, but inside as well as she struggles to find herself amidst all the drama that her life is. If Sisters in Love was Danica’s story of finding herself, this is definitely Kaylie’s. Both of their journeys are as different as the sisters themselves are and I enjoyed their stories separately and together. I wasn’t sure if I’d love Kaylie like I did Danica. She was a different type of heroine for me. A little on the promiscuous side and her seeming treatment of Chaz in book one hurt me for him. However, she really progressed into full maturity as well as responsibility including wanting to be what Chaz needed without losing herself in the process. Chaz was delicious and I LOVED him. While he might have made a bad decision or two, the consequences only served to bring him and Kaylie closer together. They have some angst between them that they need to work out along with Danica working out some of her commitment issues. Watching both of these couples work to hold on to the people that mean the most to them was emotionally draining at times but ultimately fulfilling.

    BJ Harrison is amazing. He is such a talented narrator. He is perfect reading Melissa Foster's book. I read the first book in this series, Sisters in Love, and could not wait to get my hands on this book. We left the first book with Kaylie pregnant and having to be a grown up and Danica has a new relationship. Book one flowed straight into book two without slowing down a bit. I loved Kaylie.

Although she was sometimes whining and a little unreasonable, I enjoyed watching her grow up and be an adult. As she came to realization that Chaz loves her baby or no baby, career or no career, you could actually see her settle down and enjoy life more. The feelings that Kaylie was fighting with were true to a lot of pregnant mothers and it was nice to see a supportive family and fiancée. The relationship between Kaylie and her sister, Danica was so believable. They had each other’s back no matter what, but were still the first to tell the other to open their eyes and see what was going on. Danica needed to take come of her own advice and wise up in her relationship with Blake. She is lucky that Blake was such an understanding guy and let her have her space to make EVERY decision. It seemed she was quick to make decisions for others, but for herself it took forever to make the most simple decision. I liked Danica. I just wish she trusted herself more and trusted Blake to stand by her no matter what her decision is. This is no doubt an amazing series of books. There are many more books to come in this series and I have no doubt I will read each and every one of them. I highly recommend this book and series to every chic-lit fan.

Once again with the mix of Melissa's compelling writing and B.J. Harrison's narration, he seamlessly switches characters with ease and pulls you into the story.

When Kaylie meets Chaz Crew, producer of a local film festival sparks fly. Now pregnant and trying to find her way when her singing gigs virtually dry up, she's having a very difficult time coping. Add in baby hormones and watching from the sidelines as her sister handles changes in her life with grace and ease and it throws Kaylie into a tail-spin that threatens her relationship with Chaz. Unsure of herself for the first time, insecurities rise to the surface. Chaz has his own issues to deal with. He loves Kaylie, looks forward to their baby and is preparing for his biggest festival ever, when one mistake from his past threatens everything.

We see Danica and Blake, get to know Max a little better and learn that love is seldom an easy road to navigate for most of us.

Chaz has a huge event coming up and has to go on a business trip to iron out the details. Secrets from his past are looming and if they come out before he tell Kaylie, things may get complicated. Will these two work to find their happily ever after? I love Kaylie. She is younger sister, and it's hard to see past the perfection of the first child. But her talent and perseverance are qualities to keep her going. Chaz is wonderful. He knows what he wants, what is important and what he needs to keep it. And I love how Melissa Foster has woven the history of Danica and Kaylie's parents into the story, and how it effects both girls. She is a master of giving us that relevant issue and lets us invest our hearts to find the answers along with her characters. Plus we have glimpses of Danica and Blake, which is just icing on the cake. I love stories that flow from book to book, letting us feel that sense of family and community. Loving this series and can't wait for book 3. BJ Harrison is such a wonderful story teller. He is perfect for these books. He has a calming tone which is pleasant and makes the listen flow easily. I am enjoying his portrayal of this family.

I enjoyed the audio version of this book as much as I did reading the Kindle version. The narrator does a great job adjusting his voice so you can identify which character is speaking. The only suggestion I would give you is to wear earplugs or to be careful where you listen some of the scenes are not intend for little ears and could result in a conversation you are not ready to have. Melissa Foster is one of my favorites and I would strongly encourage anyone to read her books and the Sisters in Bloom books are were all the fun starts.

    3.5 but I'll round to 4. This is the second book in the Love in Bloom series by Ms Foster that I’ve read. I can’t say that it’s better, but it definitely lives up to the standards of the first, maybe even raises them. While each book is technically a stand alone, you really should read them in order. As I suspected after Sisters in Love, Sisters in Bloom is almost as much of a continuation of Danica’s and Blake’s story as it is the story of Kaylie and Chaz.

While this book is centered on Kaylie and her growth in many areas of her life, it’s also about some issues that Chaz has to struggle through in order to make their relationship work. Again, there’s more to this book than just pure entertainment. Both Sisters in Love and Sisters in Bloom deal with some pretty heavy emotional issues and how therapy helps to work through those issues. There’s a lot more to Kaylie than meets the eye. There’s a lot more to a relationship than meets the eye. This series isn’t pure entertainment and fluff, there are things in here that give you pause and make you think. However, there’s plenty of just pure fun!
