I received an ARC copy of the book. I really enjoyed this read. I haven't read a lot of books by Susan Mallery, but I need to change that. I loved the dynamics of the family, even the horrible mom was someone you love to hate. Seemed like everyone had a secret in this novel, but it added to the drama. I felt it was a well written love story. It did not end abruptly like some do. I liked the way she wrapped up all of the different relationships. I would love to give it a 4 and 1/2 but we can't. My only reason for not scoring it a five. I do not enjoy such explicit sex scenes, but that is a personal opinion.

Kelly Murphy and her father Jeff own a tulip farm in Tulpen Crossing, Washington. They have lived alone for over ten years after her mother left the family for Phoenix. Her younger sister Olivia left home around the same time for boarding school to curb her "wild ways". Olivia sided with her mother after the divorce and they work together in the same estate office. Eager to rekindle her ties with her family, Olivia decides to visit Tulpen Crossing. Kelly hasn't warmed up to Olivia's return and is unsure how to move forward in their relationship. Through the years she has relied on best friend Helen for advice. She owns the local coffee shop and influences how Kelly handles her sister. Throughout the story Kelly, Olivia, and Helen each hold back secrets from one another. When all the truths start to unfold, all of their their relationships take a step forward. This story is about family, romance, and the power of friendships. There are many secondary characters that add interesting fabric to the story. This was a fun read by Susan Mallery.

This is definitely a great summer read, full of messy and not so messy secrets. The family dynamics are such that all are very generous in forgiveness, even as more secrets creep up throughout the story. Sisters Kelly and Olivia have remained polar opposites since their youth and it was heartwarming to see them create an adult relationship. Tulpen Crossing is described so vividly, from the tulip farm to faltering tourism, that I felt like it was somewhere I visited in person.
I have seen this book ...
I have seen this book advertised all over the internet. Every time that I saw this book I wanted to read it that much more. Well, I am happy to report that this book is every bit as good as I had hoped for. Secrets of the Tulip Sisters is a wondrous read that is filled with engaging characters that confirms you are reading a Susan Mallery book. Sisters, Kelly and Olivia could not be that more different than oil and water. Yet, I loved them both. Kelly because of her practical side and Olivia for her fearless nature. However, as I got to know them both better, I realized that they weren't that different after all. They shared similar qualities but they just did not realize it until they brought the best out in each other. After reading this book, I have gained a bigger appreciation for botanist. There is a great science in growing plants that I never even thought about. For example, in this book, Kelly would chill the bulbs first and then plant them to bloom. She knew how long it would take from start to finish and when she needed to plant them for her distributors. Before I finish, I did want to add that the men in this book were great. There was Griffith, Sven, and Kelly and Olivia's father, Jeff. He even finds some romance of his own.
