5+ Stars Enjoyable Carolyn Brown is a must buy, must read author. This stand-alone is easy to follow, difficult to put down and filled with emotion. There is no violence or drag-you-down drama.

Realistic storyline with descriptive writing. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking dialogue.

I will re-read this story and always look forward to works by this author.

Touching story about three sisters and a granddaughter who overcome misunderstandings stemming from childhood. The oldest missed having a relationship with her father who abandoned her. The other two lived in a household with a socialite abusive mother, and father (of the oldest sibling) who couldn't accept his first daughter, and wouldn't stand up to his socialite wife, thus missing out on relationships with his other two younger daughters. Through the years it was the paternal grandmother and her mate who supplied love, support and guidance to the three girls and granddaughter. But each of the girls held secrets oft their own as they got older,feeling shame and embarrassment which they were too ashamed to share with their grandmother and her mate. It took the death of their grandmother to bring them all together once again and to learn the biggest secret of them all.
This is a heartwarming story about forgiveness, understanding, compassion, and finding love in each of their own lives.

Carolyn Brown has another 5+Star novel with The Sometimes Sisters. She is my favorite author, and I have never been disappointed in even one of her stories. This story about 3 sisters (one is a bastard half-sister) who have not gotten along since they were small children visiting their Grannie Annie at her lake resort in Northern Texas. When Grannie dies and has her lifelong friend, Zed, bring them all together at the resort to take management of it and work the cafe, store, laundry, and bookwork. "Uncle Zed" has to referee these women many times, and Brook who is the daughter of the oldest sister speaks wisdom to them from her 14-year old heart. Each sister has demons from her past, and one by one they open up to Zed and then to each other. It is a beautiful story of different personalities who have their love for their Grannie in common, working together to keep up her legacy. Like The Wedding Pearls also by Carolyn Brown, you will laugh, cry and rejoice during this book. I started out having a very "blah" day, but am ending with with a song in my heart after reading The Sometimes Sisters.

Heartwarming, homespun, quirky, emotional and entertaining adventure for three sisters with a lot of real life regrets and secrets keeping them apart.

Dana, Harper, and Tawny are the “Sometimes Sisters” each with a different yet sad history and only one summer together at their Granny Annie’s lakeside resort (their dad's mom). When Granny Annie passes it is her dying wish they come together to run the resort and make a go of it as a family. Uncle Zed is on hand to help them become the sisters they are meant to be. (Granny's best friend) I just adored him so much. This story made me cry, laugh and sigh almost at the same time. Just loved it!

This is such a heartwarming story of three sisters: Dana, Tawny and Harper and also Dana's daughter Brooke. The only time they were all together growing up was the one summer month they spent at Granny Annie's. Dana had a different mother than Harper and Tawny. All three sisters have secrets. None of them had an easy time growing up. Trouble seemed to follow them into adulthood. When Annie died she left her lakeside resort to the three girls. They would now be together for more than a month and maybe longer while they figured things out.

You will come to love each and everyone of them. Cry with them. Laugh with them. Feel it all as they learn to be real sisters. Dana's daughter is fourteen going on twenty-five. She is a hoot and will put many smiles on your face. She may even have you laughing out loud. I loved every minute of this book and think it is one Carolyn Brown's best works yet. It really deserves ten stars.

I hardly ever stop reading a book before I'm finished, but this was so weak, I stopped a quarter of the way through. Amateurish, zero character development, uninteresting plot. Nuff said.

I absolutely could not tolerate the grammar and dialect in this book. I might have enjoyed it had it been written in normal voice. It seemed liked the author was trying to see how poorly she could have the characters speak. Don’t waste time or money on this book.

Granny Annie has passed away and her granddaughters have come back to the lake to stay and help Uncle Zed run the cafe, store and cabins with book work.
The sisters Dana, the oldest half-sister, Harper the middle sister and Tawny the youngest sister were called the sometimes sisters because they fought a lot amongst themselves.
Dana has a fourteen year old daughter and they all needed a place to stay at this time in their lives.
This story is one of heartache, family dynamics and finally being mature enough to know what a family is. I say Bravo to Carolyn Brown for writing this story that will make you seek out all the love and joy she has poured into this book. Thank you for what I believe is one of heartache he best stories you have written.

I kept waiting for this story to get better. It never did. It read like it was written by a middle school student. There's too many great books out there...don't waste your time on this one

From the beginning, the reader is introduced to the three Clancy sisters, their reason that they all end up at the fishing resort of their late grandmother, and why they haven't visited her recently, and how and why they became the " Sometimes Sisters. "

Through the assistance of their Uncle Zed and the insight of their Granny Annie, and the feedback of a wonderful 14 year old, the sisters learn more about themselves and each other than they have since being very young girls. Through sharing their past beliefs about each other and putting their demons out in the open, the three women learn how to be 'sometimes friends and always sisters,' as one bright teen concludes.

Rating: 4.7
