The Snow Sisters comes to a head with today’s audiobook title from Melissa Foster, narrated by B.J. Harrison. Their romances have come full circle and we are heading to the wedding. Please read on for my audiobook review of
Sisters in White
Melissa Foster brings the story around to the double wedding for Danica and Kaylie, and each sister reacts to their family dynamic and issues just as we would expect. Danica is the “get along and make it work’ sister, determined to do the right thing. Kaylie would far prefer to have all the attention and ignore anything that takes away from her shine, or causes her to look more deeply at her own buried issues.
See, the girls’ father left when they were young, he remarried and started a new family. Now they have a fabulous destination double wedding planned, and Danica (being the good girl) invites her father, his wife and their half-sister Lacey. Of course, Danica wanting to keep the peace, and Kaylie still holding on to those resentments and anger al play into the story: and more often than not, Lacey is the one who gets the angry teenager from Kaylie.
Oh this was fun – the shifting alliances, the maelstrom of emotions always bubbling below the surface in every family gathering are only heightened when you add in someone thought to have done ‘wrong’, in this case the father who’s affair led to him leaving the family to start another.
Emotional with plenty of moments that highlight the interactions, the boys do take a more supporting role. This is, no doubt about it, a story that highlights the sisters’ relationships, their interactions and how they settle the past before grabbing hold of their futures. It’s never one clear path to the reconciliations, and as with life, everything isn’t neat and clean – but it’s entertaining as hell, with a few steamy moments, plenty of emotion and an actual ending that leaves everyone smiling.
Narration is again provided by B.J. Harrison, and he’s done a lovely job in keeping the characters distinct and unique, using pacing and small variations in pitch and tone to distinguish them. Never over-reaching for a ‘female voice’ yet sounding wholly appropriate for each character, his presentation is clear and appropriate, gently guiding readers through the story, allowing the emotion, characters and words to present themselves.

Danica and Kaylie Snow are about to celebrate the biggest day of their lives—their double wedding—on an island in the Bahamas. But no wedding is complete without a little family drama. The two sisters aren’t ready to face the father they haven’t seen since he divorced their mother and moved away to marry his mistress, and live with Lacy, the half sister they’ve never met.
While Danica has exchanged letters and phone calls with Lacy, Kaylie has fervently tried to pretend she doesn’t exist. Lacy is sweet, fun, and nearly a mirror image of Kaylie. To make matters worse, not only is Lacy looking forward to meeting her sisters, but she idolizes them, too. As the countdown to the wedding date ticks on, their parents are playing a devious game of revenge, and there’s a storm brewing over the island, threatening to cancel their perfect wedding. The sisters are about to find out if the bond of sisterhood really trumps all.
