Sisters Danica and Kaylie are getting the day they've both been dreaming of since they were little girls — their wedding day. But their double wedding in the Bahamas isn't quite as breezy as they'd planned. When their father, stepmother, and half-sister are invited, family drama can't be avoided.
Danica's trying to do the right thing, Kaylie's trying to avoid it entirely, and their half-sister Lacy wants nothing more than a relationship with the two sisters she idolizes. Meanwhile, their parents are brewing up a storm almost as strong as the one hovering in the air and threatening to turn their tropical wedding into a natural disaster.
I found the family dynamic here fascinatingly realistic. Danica is pragmatic, Kaylie's emotions are on high, and Lacy is a living, breathing reminder of the broken home in which they grew up.
Most interesting, though, is the freedom now seen in Danica and Kaylie. Where Kaylie used to wear her wild side like a shield, finding love has allowed her to let down that guard and approach life with less abandon. Of course, she's still Kaylie, and she can have fun or throw a tantrum with the best of them, but it's nice to see her grow up a bit now that she's fallen in love.
Likewise, Danica isn't as rigid as she started out in Sisters in Love. We saw a little of her letting loose when she gave into her feelings for Blake, but in this book, she shows an adventurous side we haven't really seen in her before. She and Kaylie were polar opposites in the beginning, and now that they've each found happiness and love, they're letting down their opposing walls and rounding out their lives.
Of course, all the family drama going on had me wondering at times if the big wedding would actually happen, but as I hoped, it turned out to be a really fun story, with the kind of family mess most of us can relate to in some way or another, and characters who kept things interesting every step of the way.
Now to find out what happens in the next part of the series with the Bradens!

I really loved book 1 and 2 of Sisters in Bloom series and Book 3, Sisters in White was every bit as good as the first two if not even better. I feel like I have got to know Kayley, Danica, Chaz and Blake so well and the other characters are fabulous. In this book we are on the lead up to the double wedding of sisters Danica and Kayley and a wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without a bit of drama. With their mom and dad, his wife and daughter attending the wedding on an exotic resort owned by Blake’s cousin you know that something will happen.
They do eventually get married but not exactly as planned as you will find out when you read it.
We also get to know Max Armstrong a little better and meet Blake’s cousin Treat, who owns the resort and has arranged the wedding at his expense.
I think this series has been the fastest I have read books as I just can’ put them down, I want to know what happens next and that means reading the book as quickly as I can.
With romance, drama, hot men and a bit of sexual reference it was lovely to read that they finally do get married.
Very well written as always.

Sisters in White by Melissa Foster is the novel many have been waiting for. Danica and Kaylie are close, very best friends helping each other go through a broken home. Their parents divorce after their father’s infidelity and there revelations readers will not expect to come.
The novel is “hot” and full of emotions mixed with some laughter. The reader will feel the tension on the Island of the Bahamas. Every character will become the favorite as each one has the perfect scene and dialogue. If following Melissa Foster from previous novels, some characters are re-introduced and only at this point, readers will see that some of them including Kaylie have started to take on a more mature role.
The wedding’s setting may be blissful but what actually happens isn’t. Turmoils? It’s all about families, romance and then some. I do recommend this book and the previous ones. Melissa Foster has an ability to hook every reader with such an ease.

A book about two sisters who plan a double destination wedding on a tropical island in the Bahamas. What could possibly go wrong ??
Danica and Kaylie have always been close, like best friends. They relied on each other to survive their father’s affair that effectively caused their parents divorce. Children coming from a broken home sometimes have problems with trust in adulthood, but both sisters thought they had gotten past those issues.
That is, until all their guests arrived at the luxurious resort for the wedding. Fathers, mothers, stepmothers, half sisters, cousins, future in-laws … the typical blended family get together, complete with all the drama. The characters deal with so many emotions - anger, fear, hurt, confrontation, and forgiveness. Let’s not forget about love, the couples do engage in some quite descriptive "steamy" love scenes. Throw in a tropical storm that practically destroys the ceremony on a private island ... and you’ll be on the edge of your seat to find out what happens.
I think you’ll love reading this book … getting to know the characters will make them feel like new friends :)

I am hooked on the Love in Bloom Series. The sisters, their families, their issues...I am seriously emotionally involved. Danica and Kaylie are having their double wedding in the Bahamas and we are introduced to their Dad, step-mother and half-sister. The divorce of their parents has had a lasting impact on both Danica and Kaylie over the years and we see them having to acknowledge and work through them. The characters and situations are so relatable and likeable. They become friends that you just want to shake sometimes - but, yes, I celebrated, cried and talked to them throughout this novel. I cannot wait to read more and see how their lives continue to flourish as they learn more about themselves and each other. The universal themes of forgiveness, personal growth and love within Ms. Foster's stories are ones that readers from all walks of life can relate to, learn from and enjoy.

Book #3 of the Snow Sisters series doesn't disappoint! I like how I learned more about the sisters' past while meeting Lacy, their half sister; stormy weather threatening their dream double wedding…will they get married??? A continual mixture of sentiment, sensuality, humor - did I mention steamy? I look forward to reading the rest of the series! I highly recommend this book, as I do all of Melissa's previous writings!

Getting married on an island in the Bahamas is a dream come true for both Danica and Kaylie Snow. Expecting some family drama when their father and his wife, who was his mistress during his marriage to their mother, and their daughter, who Danica and Kaylie had never met, brought on a whole island worth of family drama.
With that parents playing games and keeping secrets, along with the storm that is expected to hit the island on the day of the wedding this maybe the wedding no one ever forgets.
Sisters in White is the third book in this series. I have read the first two and have to say this is my favorite. With each book I love the characters more and more. As Melissa Foster introduces more of the family into each book, I have the need to know more about the family.
The sisters in this series are real people with feelings and reactions that the reader can relate to. They are women that I would hope I would be friends with and share stories with.
With a tease of what is to come in the fourth book I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Knowing that the Braden's story is what I have to look forward to will keep me anxiously awaiting the release. I highly recommend this book and the whole series to all my fellow chic lit readers.

This is the 3rd installment in the Snow Sisters series and it just keeps getting better y'all! Being a recent bride myself I LOVED reading this book so much! The random issues you have no control over (for me it was issues with a DJ for Danica and Kaylie it was a tropical storm) and of course like any wedding major family issues. I laughed and cried and this book was HOT HOT HOT! It is super sexy at times and even made me blush but I love me some smutty sections ;). I also liked that Melissa brought in her new characters that were barely mentioned in the previous books but according to her play a large role in the next books in the series. I loved the addition of Lacy, Danica and Kaylie's half-sister. I was really expecting her to be a spoiled brat but I was soon pleasantly surprised by her part of the story.
This book is just another amazing part of this series and Melissa Foster is quickly becoming one of my most favorite authors to read and I have all of her books on my schedules :)

WOW! I would say Sisters In White covers a big majority of things that would go wrong in a movie wedding. Danica and Kaylie have their hands full with their mom and dad, half-sister, Danica’s mother-in-law, the weather and everything in between. It’s crazy!
In Sisters In White, we get to see a couple sides to Kaylie. There is a part of her with the planning of the wedding that we have never seen before. A calmer, more mature version. Then we get to see her start to spiral out of control and a childish side takes over, then she jumps back to maturity. It’s all very back and forth.
We also get to see a side of Danica that she didn’t know existed. She is a little vixen whose wild side has finally been released. She finally learns how to let herself go just a little with Blake. There are some serious “sex scenes” so if you aren’t into mature content you might want to skip over that part. Just to warn you. There isn’t really any overly-vulgar wording, but the implication is there. It gets pretty hot a steamy in some parts and it can be a bit much if you're not used to explicit romance novels.
The story is very good. The characters actions aren’t totally believable but they fit, if that makes sense. Like watching a movie. You know that in “real life” people don’t really behave they do in the movies. That is the same thing with this novel. It is just such a fun story with lovable people in it, so you want to read more. In fact, I didn’t put it down until I had finished. I couldn’t wait to see if they wedding would actually take place and what drama would occur along the way.
We didn’t hear much out of Chaz or Blake. They had more of a supportive role in this book while the girls focused on the wedding and keeping their parents and sister in their line of site. But we get to a little bit of Max and Treat and get a small glimpse into the next book: Lovers At Heart.
I can’t wait to read even more series by Melissa Foster!

I lost a lot of sleep with this one! I could not put it down.
I found that I could relate a lot more to this one than the previous two and it sucked me in from the very beginning.
I have to admit, I was a little concerned as to how this huge series was going to evolve with just Kaylie and Danica, but our circle of characters has evolved and while we still get to spend time with Kaylie and Danica, we are also introduced to new people to expand the circle.
I promise you, if you enjoy a good romance book, you will enjoy the Love in Bloom Series. They are a great read for women (there is some sexual content, but not 50 Shades of Grey content – just slightly mature for the young reader audience).
You will always hear me recommend Melissa Foster and definitely recommend the Love in Bloom Series.

Danica and Kaylie are about to get married to the great guys they have found. They decided to have a double wedding ceremony on an island. What should be a celebration of happiness is packed full of drama as they are also going to meet their half sister Lacy for the first time and see their father and step mother for the first in years. His betrayal to their mother has scarred both woman even now years later. Danica has talked to Lacy on the phone and in letters but kept it hid from Kaylie. Now the drama kicks up to full notch when all the family gets together. The girls will soon learn of some secrets from the past and will have to get over the past to have a happy celebration.
Danica has really kicked up her sexual needs in this book. She is afraid of them and tries to keep them quiet. She also as usually tries to be the peace keeper and make sure everyone is happy. She learns many things about herself in this book and while she is a grown woman it makes her really grow more as a person. Kaylie a few times reverted to the snobby spoiled girl in this book but in the situation it is to be expected. She has grown up and tries to be mature about some things and it isn't till the end you see just how much she can take and understands. Lacy is a wonderful addition to the group. She is beautiful, sweet, funny and you can tell she has a lot going on even if the others may think she had it made. She is a very open and caring girl.
If you haven't read the first two books make sure you do. They are fabulous and you get attached to the characters quickly. Danica and Kaylie have so much going on in this book. From the family acting up in different ways to ruined wedding dresses everything seems to go wrong. They face up to the challenges and push through showing you what great woman they are. I laughed several times while reading this especially while they scuba dive. You also get to see just why they have the perfect guys for them. The guys keep them under control or in some case let them go wild. Danica and Kaylie both face up to their past and learn while maybe not to let go they learn they have their own lives to live. I will say their mom really surprised me in this book and I really don't care for their dad at all. You meet several new characters in this book that make you want more of them right away. This is a wonderful series about families, love and everything in between. Be sure to pick them up and read them if you haven't. Be warned you will want them all as I can't wait for the next book.

If you are looking for a book with dynamic characters, steamy love scenes, and complex family relationships then Sisters in White by Melissa Foster is the book for you. As most of you know from my previous review of Sisters in Bloom, I’m addicted to this series. This is another book that you better make sure you have time to devote to reading. Once you start reading you will not want to put this book down.
Danica and Kaylie are getting married in a tropical paradise in this book. As everyone knows, there are always issues with family at weddings. Well, there are definitely family issues when Danica invites her dad, stepmother, and half-sister to the wedding. Melissa Foster does a wonderful job of bringing these relationships and their difficulties to light. Many people can identify with these blended families.
I know I am able to relate to these situations. It is hard to deal with family and your feelings when one parent has had an affair and ends up with that person. I feel like I’m kind of a combination of Kaylie and Danica. I have my anger issues with my father’s affair, but I still have the tendency to try to keep the peace. Well, now I do. When I was a teenager, I was a pissed off, lonely girl who continually fought back. It is only in the past 25 years that I have tried to be nice and not cause problems.
Melissa Foster does an amazing job of bringing these characters to life. You feel like you really know these people. There were times when the book would make me want to cry, and/or laugh. I felt like I was really there, and felt so connected to everything.
I give this book 5 stars. It is for adults due to explicit and steamy love scenes. It will bring a huge smile to your face. I can not wait to read the rest of the books in this series. I know that Danica and Kaylie are not in the other books (or at least not prominent characters), but I am sure these books will draw me in and leave me wanting for more. The next set of books is about Blake’s cousins, the Bradens.

Sisters in White is the 3rd book in Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom series. Sisters in White brings us the third Snow Sister, Lacy, who is a half sister to Danica and Kaylie. Wheras, the first two books were devoted to Danica (book 1) and Kaylie (book 2), this book is devoted to both happy couples who are heading to their double wedding. Lacy, who has never met her half sisters, comes to the wedding at a tropical resort, with their father, and Lacy’s mother. Through out the story, there is much early tension between Danica, Kaylie, their mother, when they meet their father, his wife, and Lacy.
This was really a fun and very steamy book. I loved spending time with Danica, Kaylie, Blake and Chaz, not to mention all their cool friends. The added element was facing their father whom they haven’t seen in many years, and coming face to face with the sister they have never met. I really loved Lacy, and she makes a great addition to the family. Danica welcomed Lacy with open arms, but Kaylie was distant early on. Kaylie resented Lacy, especially seeing how much her father adored Lacy. But in time, Kaylie begins to open up to Lacy, who totally loved being around her sisters.
There was so much to enjoy in this story. The wedding preparation, and anything that could go wrong does. The sexual chemistry between Blake and Danica is hot hot hot. Chaz and Kaylie too, but we got to see more of Blake and Danica. There also some pretty hilarious scenes throughout the book. Foster has written some wonderful secondary characters that we get to see more of, and the introduction of the Bradens, who will continue the Love in Bloom series.
I really enjoy this series, and could not put the book down until I finished it. Foster did a magnificent job in this book bringing the pieces together for the Snow Sisters. At the same time, we got to see a few very nice peeks at the Braden men (there is one sister). I would love to see Lacy actually get her own happy ending at some point in this series. If you enjoy contemporary romance, family atmosphere, some Steamy sex scenes (more in this book), then you need to read this series. Melissa Foster is on my must buy list.

This is the third book in the Sisters Series and Kaylie and Danica have their weddings planned out to the very last detail. Their family and friends will be joining them in the Bahamas at a resort that is owned by Treat Braden, who is Blake’s cousin. Treat has pulled everything out on the table to make the wedding the best that it can be. Even though he does not have the best reputation with women, he is still family and family sticks together.
Kaylie is having a rough time with everything that is going on because she has not seen or talked to her father ever since the affair that he had on their mother. She was not happy that he would be there for the wedding, but it was even worse that his new wife would be there and their daughter Lacy. Kaylie has no intention of wanting to get to know Lacy or have anything to do with her. She is a few years younger than Danica and Kaylie. Their mother will also have to be faced with the woman that tore apart her marriage, but there is a little bit of secrecy and flirting going on between Kaylie and Danica’s parents when they are given the chance to be alone.
To make matters even more complicated there is a storm that is headed their way that may just put a damper on their wedding plans and festivities. With the rain coming they are now soaked and miserable on the island where the wedding was supposed to be taking place. Can everything really be a happily ever after? I have read the first two books in the series and you get to know the characters more deeply as each book progresses in the series. By the end of book two I felt like I knew the girls but even more came out that I did not expect in this third installment. This series is a must read and I will be continuing on with the next six as we get to meet the Bradens!

This is the third in the Snow Sisters series, and continues on the story line of Danica and Kaylie. In the first two books we see the sisters fall in love. This is the perfect follow up.
Who does't dream of a destination wedding? Kaylie and Danica have definitely scored a dream wedding...on a private island. Sounds perfect, right? Well, as with all families there are roadblocks. Even in this perfect setting old family tensions are bound to rear their ugly heads.
Contemporary romance has found its new breakout author. Melissa Foster does not disappoint! Steamy sciences interlaced with strong family values. I have found my newest poolside favorite author.

Here comes the Brides! Like usual, Melissa Foster has inserted her special writing talent to bring us the weddings of the decade. Danica and Kaylie Snow are prepping for their nuptials, but as we already know from previous books... nothing will be simple with these girls lives. One wayward father enters the story with his wife and the girls half sister, Lacy. Danica felt it necessary to include 'Daddy', but Kaylie wants nothing to do with it. All this comes together bringing out secrets, emotions, and the drama you come to expect. If that is not enough, there is a bad storm coming and no way to get off the dream island that was picked for the weddings. Will they lose their men before the marriages even get started? Drama, mystery, suspense, laughter, and steamy (I do mean steamy) love. You get it all eith Sisters in White. Can not wait to read The Braden Series coming next. What little we know of them so far, I am sure The Bradens will be... hmmmmm....tantelizing!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
