Release day: The Patterson Girls

17 September 2015

Today is the official release of The Patterson Girls by Rachael Johns (trade and digital, Harlequin Mira). Here’s the blurb:

The Patterson GirlsHow can four sisters build the futures they so desperately want, when the past is reaching out to claim them?

When the Patterson daughters return home to Meadow Brook to be with their father after their mother’s death, they bring with them a world of complication and trouble.

The eldest sister, obstetrician Madeleine, would rather be anywhere but her hometown, violinist Abigail has fled from her stellar career, while teacher Lucinda is struggling to have the children she and her husband so desperately want. The black sheep of the family, Charlie, feels her life as a barista and exercise instructor doesn’t measure up to that of her gifted and successful sisters.

Dealing with their bereft father who is determined to sell the family motel, their loves old and new and a series of troublesome decisions doesn’t make life any easier, but when they go through their mother’s possessions and uncover the shocking secret of an old family curse, they begin to question everything they thought they knew.

A warm and wise novel about secrets revealed, finding your soulmate and the unique bond between sisters.

Rachael dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

The Patterson Girls began as a rural romance but transformed into a story of four very different sisters, their turbulent love lives and also the relationships with their family. Although now classified as women’s fiction, this book still has many of the traits that readers love in romance with four love stories rather than one. I had so much fun writing this story – exploring the family dynamics and creating four gorgeous suitors for my sisters. I’d love to hear which hero you fall in love with!

You can find out more about this book at Rachael’s website.

All ARRA members who comment on this post will go in the draw to win one of two copies of this book. Giveaway closes 8 October 2015. (The winners were Yvonne and Helen.)
