Tandy Sinclair is forced on a mandatory leave of absence from her law firm to "gain perspective,", i.e., to learn to keep her mouth shut and to play the corporate game.Tired and needing a heaping helping of "scrapping, sweets, and her sisters" she travels home to Stars Hill, Tennessee home of the nosiest buttinskies Ive seen since, well, my hometown. Homeland Security has nothing on Star Hills information pipeline!While at home, Tandy bumps into her former boyfriend, a green-eyed cutie named Clay who broke her heart by abandoning her to join the military ten years earlier.Sisters, Ink (Scrapbooker's Series #1)portrays what a family should be: accepting, loving, inclusive, and there for you. The fact the sisters were adopted is a refreshing twist to the story. The camaraderie shown between the sisters and their relationship with their father was endearing.And the romance? No complaints there either. I like stories revisting highschool love. I personally dont have any high school romances Id want to revisit but it is always fun to read about them and see them in the movies. I look forward to reading Coming Unglued (Sisters, Ink) in book #2 in the Sisters' Ink series.

Review 3 for Sisters, Ink, Sisters Ink Series #1

This was an absolutely adorable book and I do look forward to the sequel. I usually do not enjoy contemporary Christian fiction, but I really got into this book with plenty of giggles. Only two downfalls in my mind for this novel: one, two name switched editing errors, but not bad enough to destroy the book just caused a double take of confusion; two, I'm not a fan of Hollywood drama referencing, but that's just my personality. In the past year I've been getting into crafts more and more, especially quilting. With my quilting I have found just how important it is to find a group of ladies to be with for ideas as well as just plain 'ole company. Scrapbooking is something that I have not gotten into, but then I haven't tried either. Yet, with reading this book I felt that I was a part of a dear and loving group of ladies. I know that if I were to take up this as a new hobby that I would want the group of fellowship just as much. The basis of this book shows that anyone from anywhere can do anything if they try and commit themselves to it. Tandy definitely accomplished the world for herself and found love. Sometimes we are so certain that we have to do certain things that we lose sight of why we are attempting anything. This is a great book for the working woman to realize that she needs some time for life as well as a career. This is a fabulous sit down and be cozy read.

Review 4 for Sisters, Ink, Sisters Ink Series #1
Date:February 24, 2008
Sisterhood, romance, and conflicting career choices. Rebeca Seitz's new book Sisters, Ink has it all, including a delightful montage of characters. Sisters by adoption, the Sinclair girls--Tandy, Kendra, Meg and Joy--are as diverse (and colorful) as the novelties in a scrapbooking catalog. But despite their differences, they are devoted to each other and their widowed father. The sisters lost their mother prematurely, but Marilyn Sinclair's memory is fittingly treasured and preserved through the girls' love of scrapbooking together. This book centers on Tandy Sinclair, a 30-year-old, career-driven attorney with a successful practice in Orlando. When Tandy returns home to rural Tennessee for an unexpected vacation, she learns that life has changed in her hometown of Stars Hill. Her father is dating and her ex-boyfriend, Clay Kelner, is back in town. It's a bit too much for Tandy to accept. Although Clay is gaga over her by the end of their two-week romantic reunion, she resists the notion that they should make permanent plans, and she returns to Orlando. (How any girl could think twice about Clay's proposal is a mystery to me, because Seitz has crafted the perfect young hero.) Fortunately, Tandy uses her head to figure out a puzzle her heart couldn't resolve, and... Well, the rest is best memorialized in a 12" x 12", refillable wedding scrapbook with lots of white tulle and lace embellishments.
This heartwarming story pleasantly surprised me with its humor that got me to smile real big and even laugh out loud several times. Rebeca captures the essence of what goes on between sisters, their love, fun, joy, heart ache and bond. The sisterhoods described in this book made me miss the fun and laughter I have with my own sisters.Tandy Sebatian is single, self-reliant, unattached, successful attorney in a prestigious law firm who is forced to take a leave of absence from her job. Things have heated up on this one case and stay away until things cool off.Home!! How long has it been? Too long since she was able to be hugged by her sisters and Dad. Home!! Memories of Laughter, good food and scrapbooking. Home!! That sounded so good to her right now. Tandy headed for Stars Hill which was her childhood home. She hasnt been there in 10 years. She re-discovers emotional baggage she had forgotten, memories she cherished, people she loved, and the relationships she missed with her sisters, and dad. Tandy also starts thinking God was easier in Orlando, she could keep him at arms length by standing anonymously among thousands of people in a mega sanctuary.. She was used to keeping everyone in her life at arms length. It was simple that way; less painful; and messy. It makes it easier to run away from an uncomfortable situation; no strings attached.This book is definitely fun and it pulls on your heart strings. Theres a few things to learn too. Grab a copy, get to a comfortable chair and give yourself a real treat.
