What People are Saying About This

Executive editor (retired) Island Reporter, Sanibel, FL - Renny Severance

“A page-turner—we all want to find out who done what to who and why. Along the way we learn their secrets and how they cope with them and how they motivated them. It makes for a good mystery and entertaining reading.”

Freelance editor and writer, Columbus, OH - Kelly Tomkies

“Barbara Taylor Sanders writes a compelling story that explores the complicated and continually changing relationship between three unique sisters. The inimitable and absorbing plot and the charismatic characters will keep you turning the pages until you’ve read every word of this fascinating story.”

Dr. Lead Mentor/ Executive Author—Mentoring To-Go Programs, Ft. Myers, FL - John Michael Domino

“Barbara Taylor Sanders is an excellent writer. The first few chapters of this book kept me on the edge of my seat. Bloodline Secrets has it all: romance, mystery, suspense, and some light comical moments. It orchestrates a wonderful blend of faith in the Lord and the daily struggles between good and evil. The only problem I have is I want to read it again and again! I can only think of a half of a dozen books I have read in my lifetime deserving of that honor. Everyone should read it at least once!”

Author/editor, Cape Coral, FL - Patty Duncan

“Barbara Taylor Sanders gives us vivid, bold, and determined characters; people we enjoy getting to know. Bloodline Secrets is an exciting read.”

From the Publisher

“Laci Ann is used to keeping her royal roots secret with a long-used tactic she’s used while living abroad and even during her two brief marriages. She’s also more than familiar with the strategy of toying with the men in her life, playing various roles involving taking risks as she plays the part of a commoner courting a man. So why would she find attractive a hard-to-get and often rude bachelor who works in her father’s company; and why would she marry him?
As the story progresses, readers come to realize that Laci is well into repeating the mistakes of her past, marrying loser after loser. Her younger sister Justine can’t understand the purpose of her game, while oldest sister Claudette deliberately avoids her two siblings and fails to bond with their very different personalities.
These disparate themes come together in Bloodline Secrets, a powerful exposé of family ties, wealth, long-kept secrets, and the struggles of the privileged to live consequential lives with meaningful connections.
In the first few chapters, readers might believe they are involved in an edgy romance; but as events unfold and the very different personalities of the three sisters emerges, mystery, intrigue, and danger take over. A boating accident, a groom who may have an identical twin or his own secret life, Laci Ann’s confrontation with a terrible responsibility for her actions, and the truth about Claudette’s heritage (which changes everything) are just a few of the subplots governing a swift and engrossing story. Events lead readers in a seemingly predictable direction; then abruptly and satisfyingly introduce new elements of drama.
Bloodline Secrets is about far more than heritage, inheritance, or anguished hearts over either family or marriage relationships. Its readers are in for a treat as they follow a progressively building saga that takes a family mystery and introduces themes of changing values, stormy encounters, and the kinds of psychological changes that lead to a real homecoming in more ways than one.
Stealthily gripping, mercurial in its approach to unexpected relationship changes and challenges, and satisfyingly specific in its considerations of how disparate personalities undertake different journeys to recognize, acknowledge, and reach their real selves, Bloodline Secrets is a highly recommended read for anyone who likes their stories replete with psychological depth and the process of self-discovery.”
