Publisher's Summary

Kaylie Snow has always been the fun, flirty, pretty sister. Now her burgeoning baby bump, hormone-infused emotions, and faltering singing career are sending her into an unexpected identity crisis. Watching her older sister, Danica, glide through a major career change and a new relationship with the grace of a ballerina, Kaylie's insecurities rise to the forefront - and her relationship with fiancé Chaz Crew is caught in the crossfire.

Chaz Crew has everything he's ever wanted: a lovely fiancée, a baby on the way, and soon the film festival he owns will host its biggest event ever. When he's called away to woo the festival's largest sponsor - and the lover he's never admitted to having - secrets from his past turn his new life upside down.

With her baby shower around the corner and her fiancé's big event looming, the pressure is on for Kaylie to pull herself together - and for Chaz to right his wrongs. In a few short weeks, the couple who had it all figured out will learn things about life and love that may change their minds - and their hearts.

Sisters in Bloom is part of the Love in Bloom series. While Sisters in Bloom can be listened to as a standalone novel, for even more listening enjoyment you may want to listen to the entire Love in Bloom series in order.

AudioBook Review:
Stars: Overall 4 Naration 4 Story 4

Fast forward a bit, and we have Kylie’s story as she navigates through pregnancy hormones, a slowdown in her own career and a bit of a rough patch with her fiancé, Chaz. Not a particularly introspective character, all of these changes have Kylie worried about EVERYTHING, and the doubts are creeping in.

Chaz has a big film festival coming up, and he thinks his life is going along beautifully. Nothing is better than his fiancée and new baby on the way, and this film could mean big things for them all. But the one regret in his life has suddenly reappeared, and the existence of this woman isn’t something he ever shared with her.

Now with Kylie at a low point, a past fling that won’t stay that way and the stress and nerves around the film festival and things are just heating up.

Foster uses a combination of character development, communication and fears that are very real, if sometimes groundless, to build the story and give it teeth. Chaz is a wonderful and steady influence for Kylie, and while their love is obvious they both cling to insecurities and issues from their pasts. Insets from Danica (Kylie’s sister) and her relationship trials in her own life, and the visit from her mother all play to the issues both of the sisters have in their own lives. Issues that their mother’s influence (and some actual common sense) allow them to move forward in their own lives, allowing the past to settle.

Narration is provided by B.J. Harrison, and as I thought with the first in this series, a clever choice of narrator. There is a bit more angst and tension in this story, and Harrison’s ability to present the emotional overtones in the story without overreach or overacting. While character voices are distinct, they do not tip over the line to caricature or overly emoted, and the story is richer for that.

A great installment in the Snow Sisters series, I’m curious to get to the weddings..

I received an audiobook copy of the title from the publisher for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions and expectations are my own responsibility.

This is book 2 and I do have to say it is even better then book if that is possible. Kaylie and Chaz are an amazing couple, they will make you laugh and cry and in the end you will route for them to have a happy ever after. Danica and Blake also make this book perfection I love the advice they both give to the new couple.

Done

So much for promises to keep no secrets. Not a signle decent mature adult amongst them. Kaylie is pathetic, manipulative and a narcissist. So self centered and ego maniacal that making her a mother rang false. Danica is ridiculous and no one would believe she was ever a therapist. Hard to like a book with no likable people in it. So done with this series.

Angst, drama and change

Sisters in Bloom is largely the story of Kaylie Snow who is 8 months pregnant worried about her burgeoning weight, her flagging singing career, doubting Chaz, her fiancée’s, fidelity, and trying desperately not to turn into her mother. Having always been the free-spirited, fun-loving, pretty girl, Kaylie is experiencing many of the self-doubts experienced by new mothers to be. At the same time her sister Danica is faced with decisions to make about her relationship with her boyfriend, Blake. The arrival of their mother, who has undergone changes of her own, results in challenges and introspection from both sisters. Add in side stories of other characters in the Snow Sister’s orbit and there is more than enough drama to go around. As is her style, Melissa Foster writes complex multi-layered books that tend to center on relationships and character growth with romance as more of a vehicle for the characters to learn and grow. While it had its steamy moments, this book was particularly emotional with the over-the-top emotions and angst raging in Kaylie. I finished this book feeling rather battered and overwhelmed by the intense emotions. I found Kaylie to be very self-centered and self-absorbed. More worried about being pretty and thin after her baby is born, whining about a drop off in her singing gigs and constantly carrying on about not wanting to turn into her mother (who she perceived as being weak because she stayed with their father in spite of his infidelity). I really did not like her as a person and often just wanted to slap her and tell her to grow up. I disliked her almost hatred of her mother, when I felt she should be supporting her mom and seeing how she did what she did for her girls. Kaylie’s lack of self-awareness was consistent with her self-centeredness. Several times during the book she would say to herself that she was not that person that did X, Y or Z and I practically laughed out loud thinking, “Oh yeah, that is you exactly, honey.” The way that Danica constantly put her own happiness on hold or had it take a back seat to Kaylie’s drama also drove me nuts. Fortunately, Kaylie seeks out help in sorting out her emotions and gaining more self-awareness. By the end of the book, she was beginning to make amends with her mother and started to dial back the self-centeredness. I don’t think I will ever like her, but she became a more likeable person. Danica, who we met in the first Snow Sisters book, has grown with her relationship with Blake and continues to grow in this book as she deals with her sisters’ drama as well as that of friends and co-workers at her new community center. I look forward to seeing the stories of many of the secondary characters evolve in future books. I like that the author tackles real-life topics (such as a woman’s doubts and career fears when pregnant) and has her characters learn and grow over the course of the book. B. J. Harrison did his usual remarkable job with the narration. His smooth voice is easy to listen to and he voices each character very effectively. I will look for him in other series. ***I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my own, unbiased review.***

Great story - enjoyed more than book 1

I really enjoyed Kaylie and Chaz's story. They are a great couple together and seem to be able to get through anything. I also loved that Danika and Blake's story was so good in this book too. Both romances were just so great that I wanted more when the book was done. All the characters were ones that I wanted to get to know more. I can't wait for the next book in the series. The narrator was good but the voice was a little slow so by speeding it up a bit, it sounded good. I would recommend this audiobook.

Wonderful characters!

I really had a great time with this audiobook! This is the second book in the Snow Sisters trilogy which really would be best when read in order. This book picks up shortly after the events of the previous book and focuses on the same group of characters. I thought that it was kind of fun to watch these two couples move on to the next stage of their relationships. I found this to be a very enjoyable listen. Kaylie and Chaz are very much in love as they await the birth of their baby. It has taken a lot fo these two to get to this point and they still have a few obstacles to overcome. Kaylie not only has the pregnancy to deal with but she is also finding it to be increasingly difficult to book new performances. Chaz has a few issues to deal with as well including one old flame determined to make things difficult. I really liked Kaylie and Chaz together. Neither character was perfect but they seemed to fit together very well. I really enjoyed getting to see them learn to open up to each other and be honest. I never doubted how much they cared for each other at any time during the story and it was great to see everything come together. Danika and Blake were also great in this book and I thought that the progression of their romance was equally important to the overall story. B.J. Harrison did a fantastic job with this story. I thought that he handled all of the different character voices extremely well. I thought that he added a lot of excitement and emotion to the story. I found his voice to be very pleasant and I believe that his narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story. I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a very well done contemporary romance filled with characters that I cared about. I cannot wait to continue with the series! I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.

Sisterly Love with a Twist

Sisters in Love takes us back to Colorado to be with Danica and Kaylee. In this book we get to experience the love between Kaylee and her “baby daddy” Chaz. This book has many highs and lows and definitely keeps you questioning whether Kaylee and Chaz will survive the challenges. I personally love how real these two are and how their relationship isn’t perfect but they are always willing to keep trying to make it work. Give this book a listen and I’m sure you’ll fall in love too!!

Great Second in Series Gives it All

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. Again, another great story. While the previous characters had their issues, that was nothing like these characters. Kaylie has such a BIG personality that comparing her to her sister, Danika, is not fair to either of them. Kaylie and Chaz's love story is on fire. The author brings the listener/reader in and doesn't let them go. Couldn't stop listening. The narrator does a wonderful job with the characters and their personalities.

Amazing read

Sisters in Bloom is the second book in the Snow Sisters series by Melissa Foster, and after initially learning about Danica and becoming acquainted with Kaylie, this book was one I really looked forward to reading. Kaylie is the opposite of Danica, where Danica is reserved, Kaylie is very ‘out there’ but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have her own hang ups and insecurities as we learn in this book. This book shows a couple in a loved up gloss, but when Kaylie finds out she is pregnant things start changing. Kaylie struggles to find work in her industry, as no one wants to hire a pregnant female, and with Chad working on his own big break, she starts feeling vulnerable. With a spanner in the works, everything appears far from easy. The book is very sweet and I adore Chaz and Kaylie’s relationship. The book highlights that communication is key, and that people aren’t mind readers. I loved how utterly realistic and relatable these characters are and I could not get enough. I was lucky enough to receive an audio copy of this book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The narrator was new to me, but re-emphasised my love for this story. The narration was clear, engaging and like all of Melissa Foster’s audiobooks, brought an element of fun and enthusiasm to the story. It was an enjoyable listen that enabled me to switch off from life, and envisage these characters in my mind as the story played out. For anyone who is looking for an audio book series to get stuck into, I’d highly recommend this set! It is perfect for all romance lovers, and those looking for a sweet with heat listen.

CHAZ=HOT!!!

I love Blake and Danica but my favourite couple from the Snow Sisters has to be Chaz and Kaylie. Kaylie is very insecure because of circumstances regarding her parents and her past and as much as she loves Chaz she struggles to get past it. Chaz is so patient with her and when you listen to the audiobook the strength of his love for her flows through. Chaz understands her like no-one else (except Danica) and as much as he could get frustrated with her or let her push him away he doesn't. At times you are frustrated at Kaylie while listening to the book but the way Melissa has written this story you understand why Kaylie is the way she is. I absolutely love this audiobook and it's another brilliant audiobook by my favourite author.

Sisters in Bloom

The Story: This is book 2 in the wonderful Love in Bloom universe that Melissa Foster has created. Book 1 in the series concentrated more on Danica's story whereas this one is more about Kaylie & Chaz and their upcoming baby.  Kaylie is going through an pregnant hormonal time in this book, and at times she sometimes came off a whiney kids, but she is dealing with her career taking a bit of a nose dive due to her pregnancy - not music promoter is going to hire her at the moment and she takes that kinda hard. You can see why they wont but it doesn't make Kaylie feel any better.  We see how miscommunication between her and Chaz almost ruin their relationship when a sponsor tried to break them up. This was a great story and cant wait to read more from Danica and Kaylie in book three.   The Narration: BJ Harrison is back and narrating this instalment of the Snow Sisters books, I have got used to his voice and his female characters now that it made this a nice smooth listen.

Another good listen

This is the second book in the Snow sisters series. It mainly focuses on Kaylie and Chas's relationship as they approach parenthood. In between the story is the growing relationship between Danica and Blake as they head towards living together. Add in the side characters of Gage and Sally it makes for a great listen. Sometimes Kaylie comes across as a whining teenager, but as you get further into the book you realise she lets her past control her future. BJ Harrison is a great narrator.

The second Snow sister

This is a standalone book but follows on from Danicas story. It explores lots of emotions and Kaylie is just as flawed as the rest of us. The same can be said of her other half Chas. Definitely one to listen to.
