Thirty-year-old Brooke Padget is the landlady of The Highwayman’s Drop in the beautiful Yorkshire village of Leyholme. Commitment-averse and obsessed with work, she isn't looking for anything serious – and she certainly isn't interested in the pub's new barman, gorgeous single dad Hayden. Or is she?
Older sister Rhianna Garret has fled wealthy husband James after discovering his infidelity. As she moves back to the pub with her children in tow, it’s clear that living together will be tricky for these two very different sisters...
Meanwhile, their widowed mum Janey is keen to rejoin the dating scene. But a lot has changed sinceher youth in the seventies – and she’ll need the help of her girls.
As the sisters join forces to help Janey, as well as fight off the chain circling the pub, their relationshipbecomes close once again. Until Brooke discovers Rhianna is hiding a secret that could drive a wedge between them all…
Can the two sisters come together to save The Highwayman’s Drop, their mum's love life – and their relationship?
When you finish the last sentence of a book and race to find a pen to create your review then it has to be the sign of a great book. I loved everything about it....pure heart was at the forefront of this story to create a warm and inviting atmosphere to welcome you in. But what a setting we had in Leyholme, which was a gorgeous pocket of the world, with the Highwayman’s Drop in pride of place, front and centre. But what really stood out to me was the family and relationships running through the narrative. They really jumped off the pages to create something exceptionally special for the reader.
Character creation is one of my favourite elements to any story and the cast of characters gracing the pages of this book were loveable from the word go. Brooke and Rhianna had a rocky path through the pages to say the least but it was a pure joy to witness their relationship take on the trials and tribulations of life and love and come out on top with a new unbreakable bond. But my favourite character by far would have to be Janey.....her penchant for life made me giggle on so many occasions and I was rooting for that sort after happy ending.
The Sister Pact is pure joy from start to finish with relationships and love leading the way through a charming narrative. I was hooked from the opening moments and found I didn't want the pages to come to an end.
