The Almost Sisters

51GyKnFwE-LI was very excited for The Almost Sisters to be available since I loved Joshilyn Jackson’s Someone Else’s Love Story, reviewed here. What’s funny is that I had forgotten that two years ago I read another of Jackson’s books, The Opposite of Everyone, and didn’t really like it. The Almost Sisters was good, especially at the end, but not as good as Someone Else’s Love Story. However, it was better than The Opposite of Everyone. Leia Birch Briggs’ has a one-night stand at a comic convention, which turns into a baby boy. Before she confesses this to her family, her step-sister Rachel’s marriage falls apart and she learns that her grandmother, Birchie, is losing her mind, having hidden her dementia with the help of her best friend. Leia returns to Alabama to help her grandmother and ends up in the middle of a crime scene. While things tie themselves up somewhat too neatly to be believed, it was a good and quick summer read.
