A Sister's Secret
Savvy and decisive, Burgundy Reeves feels blessed with a good husband and a successful career. She is the sister everyone envies. Since her beloved mother's death, she's given troubled youngest sister, Elyse, a stable home when she needs it most. And she's taken it on herself to keep her contentious siblings together. Under her guidance, they all meet bi-monthly on "Sister Day," a time when they get together to bond, to receive a challenging "assignment," and to cope with a range of things--including their many differences . . .Among the sisters' most challenging assignments: tell the truth. But truthfulness leads to an unveiling of secrets that may destroy lives. Burgundy is struggling to show Coco the real deal about her unreliable baby daddy. If she and level-headed Drucilla can also convince hard-headed eldest sister Alita to give Coco more love than tough talk, that might heal a longtime rift. But it's teenage Elyse's truth that will shatter Burgundy's perfect world beyond repair. And putting the pieces back together could make the sisters stronger together than ever--or pull them apart for good.

Burgundy who is married and a business woman, who takes in younger sister Elyse. Elyse is very withdrawn. Why? Coco has children annd a baby daddy who has issues with one of the children. Could it be because he may not be the father? And if this is the case, who is the father? Dru, the level headed one Ok. This is the way to start a series. This book is fire!!!!

    Alita, Burgundy, Coco, Dru, and Elyse Reeves are of all different shapes, shades and economic sectors. When the five Reeves sisters lost their beloved mother, they vowed to love and support each other; but this story (first in a new series) is all about abuse and drama. I didn't realize "Love and Revenge" was a literary genre but that's how author Cydney Rax refers to her work. I would call this Chick Lit or Escapism, neither of which is a favorite of mine, but I'm always curious and this was re Alita, Burgundy, Coco, Dru, and Elyse Reeves are of all different shapes, shades and economic sectors.

Between all the gospel church vernacular and urban slang I learned quite a lot of foreign phrases and terms. While that juxtaposition amuses, I am put off by the foul language and unkindness.

    There's a LOT of drama here. These sisters- Burgundy, Elise, Coco, Dru, and Alita- all have secrets, many many secrets. Some of those secrets could hurt other sisters but some of them hurt only themselves. I wondered when these would have come out if their mom hadn't died (of course but likely not so quickly.). This is a quick read about women who have committed to each other. You'll probably like one of the sisters more than the others but all of them have positives.

    At times the story is light and funny. Other times, it is like an intense expressionist painting depicting the pain and emotional distress of the women and their hidden secrets. In crafting such vivid tale, Rax soars above the genre for which she is best known. Read more on my blog

    Burgundy, Elise, Coco, Dru, and Alita are sisters that promise to look out for one another after their mother's death. This is complicated by the secrets each sister is hiding. As the first book of a new series, I thought the author did an amazing job of drawing me in and making me look forward to the second book. This was also a super quick read and very enjoyable!

    I can honestly say that I didn't finish A Sister's Secret by Cydney Rax.I truly am sorry Ms. Rax. I am sure that it is a good read however, as hard as I tried to get into this book I couldn't due to the culture revealed in A Sister's secret. I just couldn't relate to the situations or the cultures discussed.This book is about a family of 5 African-American Sisters, from what seems a lower middle class, dealing with issues regarding marriages and parenting, at least that was being discussed up to I can honestly say that I didn't finish A Sister's Secret by Cydney Rax.I truly am sorry Ms. Rax.

Many of you will enjoy it but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

    While reading the first chapter, I had the feeling I wasn't going to like this book. I don't like to give up on a book and I told myself I would read 20% and if I wasn't feeling it I would stop. The book is about a family full of sisters. Ms. Rax did a good job of developing the characters although we got to know some much more than others. Some sisters were hardly talked about. Because of this I wondered if this book were the 2nd in a series but in looking through the author's previous titles i While reading the first chapter, I had the feeling I wasn't going to like this book.

Because of this I wondered if this book were the 2nd in a series but in looking through the author's previous titles it doesn't appear to be the case. By 20% I was caught up in the story and wanted to know what happens. Even though the title implies some scandalous secret, it's more like the parts of their lives they don't share with each other. By the end of was looking forward to some closure on some of the storylines but alas, Ms. Rax doesn't give much closure but hints it will continue in an upcoming book. While I liked it more than I thought I would, I'm not sure I'll read a continuation. But the characters and their stories will remain with me.
