It is time for another search of our TBR shelves/piles for those sadly neglected books from the past.  Carole’s Random Life in Books is hosting this event.

In the past two weeks, I have scrounged around among my books from February 2018, and today’s sad book was also found there. Secrets of the Tulip Sisters, by Susan Mallery was downloaded on February 2, 2018, and looks like a perfect springtime story.

I know that I fully intended to read this one sooner…and I don’t know why I neglected it.  But that was a Thing back in February 2018, I guess.

At any rate, I will rectify the oversight, as this one sounds like a good one to me now.  And I love tulips!

Kelly Murphy’s life as a tulip farmer is pretty routine—up at dawn, off to work, lather, rinse, repeat. But everything changes one sun-washed summer with two dramatic homecomings: Griffith Burnett—Tulpen Crossing’s prodigal son, who’s set his sights on Kelly—and Olivia, her beautiful, wayward and, as far as Kelly is concerned, unwelcome sister. Tempted by Griffith, annoyed by Olivia, Kelly is overwhelmed by the secrets that were so easy to keep when she was alone.

But Olivia’s return isn’t as triumphant as she pretends. Her job has no future, and ever since her dad sent her away from the bad boy she loved, she has felt cut off from her past. She’s determined to reclaim her man and her place in the family…whether her sister likes it or not. For ten years, she and Kelly have been strangers. Olivia will get by without her approval now.

While Kelly and Olivia butt heads, their secrets tumble out in a big hot mess, revealing some truths that will change everything they thought they knew. Can they forgive each other—and themselves—and redefine what it means to be sisters?


What books have you neglected?  Let’s talk about them, and enjoy catching up on those older TBR tomes.



  1. I always buy books with the intention of reading them soon but that rarely happens. I really want to read Susan Mallery and this sounds like a good one to try. I am finding that I am much more aware of all of the beautiful flowering plants this year so the fact that this is about a tulip farmer does appeal. Thanks for joining in!

  2. I can’t believe all the books I have on my shelves that I know for certain that I’d love and have no idea why I haven’t gotten to them all yet. A book about a tulip farmer does sound great for this time of the year. Hope you enjoy it, Laurel-Rain!
