You don't get over killing your sister's husband. Accident or not. When twenty-four-year-old Kate Hathaway graduated with honors from Emory University, she couldn't wait to begin an exciting career in publishing. But one stupid mistake on a cold, rainy morning in Atlanta changed everything. Not only was Glen Lloyd Hastings her brother-in-law but he was also her best friend. Tormented by guilt, she vowed to do anything to make amends to Stacey—her provocative, pampered sister. The once-brilliant career woman settles into a life of loneliness and caring for her ailing mother. On a business trip to New York City, she meets an enticing, mysterious man who coaxes her out of solitude and into a fiery love affair. Not so fast. Stacey won't allow it. The sisters become entangled in secrets, back-stabbing, and betrayal. Is it revenge or something far more sinister?

Brooklyn Bitters: Written by the Author of award winning Pages in the Wind, her newest novel will no doubt be a contender for many awards. Brooklyn Bitters follows the story of Kate Hathaway, a single career woman, a care taker for her mother, a big sister and an aunt. Kate's role in life isn't exactly what she wants, she longs for more and she receives her wish. In life issues that she never could have imagined or saw coming, Kate takes on the world. A truly coming of age story. So many interesting characters, I particularly loved the story of Kate's sister, Stacy. Stacy and Kate have a difficult relationship, Stacy being the younger sister actually bully's and manipulates her big sister Kate. Stacy is one of my favorites in the book. I don't want to give away too much but Stacy is a little on the scary side. With this Author's great ability in writing psychological novels she does not disappoint! Many times I found myself on the edge of my seat and all of the time I could not put the book down. I absolutely loved this book. I have read it two times! It is just the best and quite a thriller. If I could give this 10 stars I absolutely would. You will love it, many twist and turns that you will not see coming!
I bought this book when I saw it on Goodreads because I so enjoyed her previous book. The author puts a lot of attention to her characters and they grab you fast. You never feel like you’re reading a book but a life, they seem to jump out on the pages and grab you. The story is about two sisters and a love interest and so much more. Every emotion imaginable is touched or grabbed as the main character tries to deal with a terrible guilt and lonely existence that results from a terrible car accident that she feels responsible for. The worse part is that the one that dies is her sister’s husband. And boy, she never lets her forget it. The villain is a sexy temptress who enjoys hurting her sister. She is entertaining and evil. The end shocked me more than once and held a deeper meaning but one I cannot say without spoiling it. This book I read in one sitting because it held me captive. It needs a sequel although the author seems to like to leave the reader wondering what would happen after they turn the last page.
