Cami DiCarlo doesn't agree with her father that her life has been stuck in a rut, so she is not happy when he forces her hand into heading up guest services at his newest five-star hotel. The fact that he unveils the existence of four half-sisters at the same time, and insists that they live together while they launch the new resort, only makes things worse. When she meets Vince Talmadge, the sweet, sexy landscaper her father would never have approved of, Cami can't say no. If only she could be sure she is on the right track - and that they will be able to stop the person who is trying to destroy everything she and her sisters are working to build.

A great concept and story. It would be quite a shocker to find out,at the reading of your fathers will, that your father had other woman and thus you have other sisters you didn't know about! Lots of heartbreak, anger and love abounds in this story! Oh, and of course romance is yummy! The book is awesome,but the audible reader could be better!
Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
Sigh, I can get behind a nice contempo series. This is an intriguing premise. Six sisters who only just found out they are sisters and have to run their father's last hotel together.
Cami is the eldest and has to deal with the shock of finding out her father cheated on her mother and had other kids. Such a tough thing to learn and deal with, especially when she hero worshiped her father. You really get a great feel for her and go through the growing pains of forgiving her father and deciding to get to know her new sisters.
Vince is a great match for her. I love his hometown feel and how connected he is with the community. He has a wonderful connection with Cami and they have chemistry in spite of her father's apparent match making.
I love the supporting cast and all the little stories going on that are sure to carry out through the series. There are plenty of hints for the other sister's romances as well as a few intrigues at the hotel. The main side story was pretty easy to predict the bad guy, but it did not detract from the enjoyment of the overall read.
While this is a romance and character's have sex, it is strictly closed door. No details for the naughty readers. I don't mind the cleaner romances, so no problem here. The fact that they do sleep together knocks it out of the Christian Romances. It is a pretty clean read though, plenty of kisses but no erotic details or thoughts.
It is a mixed narrative, so you get both sides of the story from the leads. It makes for a well rounded story.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Valerie Gilbert, who is definite favorite. I always enjoy her reads and the energy she puts into the read. She has a nice brisk pace, I never have to speed things up when listening. Her voices are varied and consistent, it is always a pleasure to see what she is going to do with a book. The women are great and the men are just deep enough without going into a false tone. She is a perfect for the series!
I am really happy to have found this series and can not wait for the other girls books. They are so different and interesting. You can pretty much see how all the pairings are going to and I adore the "Future Sons-in-law Club" they are so going down!

The story line might have been okay if I could listen to the reader. Just grated on me... -Over-enunciation with voice inflections in the wrong places - drawn out - odd. Just all wrong. Totally drove me crazy.
Won't be reading any more of the series - different reader? Maybe...
I like the idea of a group of females learning to bond. Although I bought all the books in this series, I still really am disgusted with their father. Self centered MW. I feel for all the girls that they had to learn of how deceitful their father was for their entire lives.
I don't have a favorite of the characters. They all have strong personalities and manage to mesh well under difficult circumstances.
I like most audio books . It leaves me free to work and do errands while still enjoying a book. Although she isn't my favorite narrator, she is pretty good.
