"Abby Drake is a masterful storyteller."
--Sue Margolis, author of Gucci, Gucci, Coo

The secrets sisters keep can be startling--and in the hands of Abby Drake, author of Perfect Little Ladies and Good Little Wives, they can be outrageous, eye-opening, wickedly smart and wildly funny. With The Secrets Sisters Keep, Drake once again takes women's fiction far beyond common chick lit--delighting readers with a deeply satisfying story of four sisters gathering at a rich uncle's home to celebrate his birthday. But they'll have to find the old man first, since he's inconveniently gone missing. If you like Allison Pearson, Jennifer Weiner, and Jennifer Crusie, you will love this fresh and surprising story of sibling rivalry, fate, disputed fortunes, and The Secrets Sisters Keep.

Back cover copy

Sisters should be the best of friends, but . . .

When it comes to family secrets, the four Dalton sisters have had more than their share. Then quirky, spirited Uncle Edward decides to throw a seventy-fifth birthday celebration and wanders off, leaving the women to face their past--and one another.

Ellie-the eldest, tended to Uncle Edward instead of her dreams. Exasperated with his antics, aware that she's not getting any younger, is she finally ready to take off for Egypt?

Amanda-the Park Avenue snob, spent two decades raising three kids and squandering money she didn't have. Now that her husband's found a Brazilian back-waxer to take her place, will she reassess her life?

Babe-the movie-star beauty, fled New York for L.A. When she returns with her has-been actor-husband, will love and lust be reignited for her--with someone else?

Carleen-the middle-class mom, a ninth-grade algebra teacher, quilts cloth pocketbooks for fun. Did she really once have orange hair, bad boyfriends, and an attitude? Will her sisters ever forgive her for their shattered family? Or will she be forced to tell them the truth?

And will these ladies ever be able to confront their long-buried past and act like, well, sisters again?
