Review by Suze

Lucy's mother has ruined Lucy's life and she has to get away from it all. She leaves Boston and returns to England to live with her sister Juliet for a few months. Juliet has a bed & breakfast in Hartley-by-the Sea, which is a wonderful seaside village. What was supposed to be a healing stay is proving to be difficult when Juliet is far from welcoming and when Lucy's job for the time being proves to be tough. Lucy's boss Alex is strict and scary and she has to do her very best not to offend him.

Lucy tries to make the most of her stay in the village. She finds new friends easily which is something Juliet resents. There's nobody special in Juliet's life and she's very lonely. Lucy is determined to get along with her sister and every time they're taking a little step in the right direction. Juliet wants to let people in, but she's afraid, because she has so many wishes that might never be fulfilled. When they can finally talk about their mother the sisters finally bond a little. Will it be enough to get along and will they both find someone who will love them no matter what?

Rainy Day Sisters is a beautiful stories about two sisters who both had difficult childhoods because of their mother. She still influences their lives and the way they behave. They need to become their own person and when they finally get to know each other they have a chance to achieve that. I liked that aspect of the book a lot. Juliet is inaccessible, but she's also craving love. Opening up is scary and she tries to hide behind a mask of unfriendliness. It broke my heart because she deserves so much more. Lucy is such a kind and gentle person. Instead of being welcomed with open arms after the traumatic events in Boston she gets unfriendliness. She's resilient and strong and she's such a wonderful, open person that she will be able to defrost anyone. I loved that about her. 

I like books about sisters and Rainy Day Sisters is a great one. It's such a touching story and I couldn't stop reading. I kept being really curious to find out what would happen next. Kate Hewitt switches between the sisters in her chapters. I think that works really well. Both Juliet and Lucy have a distinctive own voice and I was equally interested in either of them. The story is strong and there are many interesting moments. I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to anyone who loves to read a great quality romantic small town story with amazing main characters.
