Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Daughters of the Bride comes the charming tale about the problem with secrets, the power of love, and the unbreakable bond between sisters.

Kelly Murphy's life as a tulip farmer is pretty routine - up at dawn, off to work, lather, rinse, repeat. But everything changes one sun-washed summer with two dramatic homecomings: Griffith Burnett - Tulpen Crossing's prodigal son, who's set his sights on Kelly - and Olivia, her beautiful, wayward, and, as far as Kelly is concerned, unwelcome sister. Tempted by Griffith, annoyed by Olivia, Kelly is overwhelmed by the secrets that were so easy to keep when she was alone.

But Olivia's return isn't as triumphant as she pretends. Her job has no future, and ever since her dad sent her away from the bad boy she loved, she has felt cut off from her past. She's determined to reclaim her man and her place in the family - whether her sister likes it or not. For 10 years she and Kelly have been strangers. Olivia will get by without her approval now.

While Kelly and Olivia butt heads, their secrets tumble out in a big, hot mess, revealing some truths that will change everything they thought they knew. Can they forgive each other - and themselves - and redefine what it means to be sisters?

Told with Mallery's trademark heart and humor, the Tulip Sisters are in for the most colorful summer of their lives....

    "Didn't Finish the Book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Take out the sexually explicit content and it would have been a great story.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Susan Mallery? Why or why not?

    Probably won't buy another. May get one from the library and give it a chance but when authors include unnecessary sexual content it takes away from good writing.


    Have you listened to any of Tanya Eby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great narrator!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Secrets of the Tulip Sisters?

    All sexual details. They're not necessary, especially when you have a good story.

    "Loved it!"

    Susan Mallery just keeps getting better and better. She has a way of bringing you into her world and making you forget all about life for a little while. The narrator, Tanya Eby does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. All in all, this was a very enjoyable listen.

    "Good story, keeps you listening"

    Light reading, not a heavy story. Very contemporary girl book. Easy to listen to. Deals with today's family issues.

    "No Doubt The Worst Book I Ever Spent Good Money On"
    What disappointed you about Secrets of the Tulip Sisters?

    Basically everything disappointed me. Let's start with the publisher's summary of the book I read before spending a credit on this elementary book of fiction. The book summary was very misleading. I typically purchase mysteries & thrillers (psychological) and the summary lead me to believe that this book was such. But instead I got a sappy romance story that read like a high school English assignment-writing your first novel. People do NOT talk like the characters in this book and the unexpected and poorly placed sex scene descriptions were if not raunchy (and I am not a prude), were at the very least so implausible as to be laughable! Lastly, the characters were introduced so randomly and so quickly I had a very hard time keeping track of the characters at the beginning of the book. Sure wish I could get my credit back!!!!!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A true mystery or pyschological thriller


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. When reading the book's description, one of the things that was mentioned was the stories setting which I liked as well as the'tulip farming/industry' reference. I liked the setting and the incorporation of the Tulip Farming-Tourist feature but it was given short shrift and when referenced, sounded comical.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that if a reader is truly dissatisfied and is mislead by the book's description, they should be able to get their money back.

    "Enjoyable Listen"

    I enjoyed listening to this book but have a couple of minor issues: the mom was I redeemable and really had no place in the book except that she caused problems for otherwise likable characters and smooth relationships. The ending also seemed a bit abrupt. I would have preferred it to have been a bit more satisfying.

    Story
    "Dysfunctional & So Funny!"

    Susan Mallery successfully mixes dysfunctional family drama with super funny dialogue to create a fun listen. Sisters Kelly and Olivia Murphy are abandoned by their mom which results in the girls having very different teen lives. Kelly stays in Tulpen Crossing, and after being sent away to boarding school, Olivia goes to Phoenix with their mom. When a grown Olivia moves back home with Kelly and their dad, the girls fight, laugh and try to figure out how to be sisters. When their mother follows Olivia back to Tulpen Crossing, the girls are determined to keep her out of their new relationship and away from their dad's new love.

    Filled with old boyfriends, new loves, Mallery somehow entwines funny situations, difficult conversations and family drama into a great listen.

    "Talk to each other!"

    This story is entertaining if predictable. Afraid to love after a divorce? Check
    Don't trust anyone? Check
    Overarching angst? Check
    Don't want to 'bother' significant other with important things? Check

    It was entertaining though.
