But on a sunny summer day, these three are hurled into an astounding new reality which forces each to reconsider everything they thought was true about themselves, and one another.

My Review


This being the first book I’ve ready by Gamble I was pleased with her writing. Secret Sister was written very well and flowed nicely. It is not one of my usual types of books to read but I was not disappointed. In life, we are constantly asking ourselves “what if?” and this story is basically just that. It is revolved around the relationship of two best friends, Cathy and Roxanne and that of a husband and wife, Nick and Cathy. And the daily “what if” questions they ask themselves after a tragic accident.

This book right from the start hits you with the big guns, POW!! The first two chapters had me wondering about so many different things. I was instantly sad and thinking WOW! It’s hard to put into words my feelings for this book. I believe Gamble wanted me to feel sad, angry betrayal, longing and then finally love. Which I felt but not until I was half way through and once those emotions started going it became a riveting story! There were so many emotional twists towards the end.

I loved how Gamble portrayed the grieving process for those who love one another and of course how differently people can approach such situations. Though this story is considered a romance it’s not your typical romance, which I enjoyed. I personally felt it was more about being in love and the lengths you would go to, to be with that person. Rather than the steamy sex scenes most romance novels have these days. (Not that that’s a bad thing). Gamble also wrote the characters and there intertwined relationships really well. And let’s not forget the major twist of what the title really means. I did not see that one coming.

Without providing any spoilers…over all it was a good story. If you enjoy extremely emotional books give this one a try.
