Introducing Love You Like a Sister by Robin Palmer

I'm so excited about today's book birthday because I've actually read this book. And I loved it!!! As a daughter of divorced parents who married people with other children, I'm all too familiar with the complications of blended families, and Robin Palmer captures it all perfectly in this awesome new book!




Blurb:

Four soon-to-be-stepsisters must learn to work together as they try to make their parents’ wedding day a day to remember in this witty M!X novel in the tradition of Bridesmaids.

When Avery was two, her parents divorced, and it’s just been Avery and her mom ever since—the Two Musketeers. Until Avery opens her email—on a non-holiday and not her birthday—and receives a bombshell announcement from her father. Not only is he moving back to the New York area, he is remarrying—and his soon-to-be wife has three daughters. Avery’s future stepsisters. Holy. Moly.

Avery’s father is determined to make them all one happy family, so he and his fiancĂ©e ask the girls to be the bridesmaids in the upcoming wedding. And they want the girls to help with the something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Meaning that Avery and the girls—who clearly want nothing to do with her—are going to be forced to spend time together.

It’s one (hilarious) disaster after another as Avery tries to help and get to know her future stepsisters—who are all dealing with their own issues with the wedding. From spilling a chocolate-y drink on a very expensive dress when they go dress shopping, to turning her future step-mother’s hair bright blue days before the wedding. Can they all manage to make the wedding a day to remember—or will it be memorable for all the wrong reasons?

Bio:


After a decade-long career in Hollywood, Robin Palmer regained her sanity and chucked her cushy network executive job and expense account to become a writer. Which, she quickly discovered once her savings account was depleted, may not have been so sane. Luckily her perseverance paid off with the publication of her first YA book CINDY ELLA, the first in a series of modern retellings of fairy tales set in a fictional Los Angeles high school. This was followed by GEEK CHARMING (made into a highly rated original Disney Channel movie starring Sarah Hyland); LITTLE MISS RED, WICKED JEALOUS, THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET, and ONCE UPON A KISS. In addition, she wrote a five-book middle grade series called YOURS TRULY, LUCY B. PARKER. A few years ago she moved back into screenwriting as well and has written numerous television movies including the highly rated Hallmark movie SO YOU SAID YES starring Kellie Martin. She lives in Louisiana with her husband, daughter, and way too many animals.

  3. This cover really grabs your attention, and I love that a writer can communicate these things in a way that younger people can relate, to perhaps make it easier for all involved. Kudos to Ms. Robin! Hugs...
