Books About Sisters
I love a story that centers around sisters. Luckily, so does my friend Amy Novelgossip. Here, we have a huge list of Books about Sisters!
Despite some heavier topics it really does read like a light, summery read. At heart it’s a novel about family, forgiveness, acceptance, letting go of painful pasts, and the always complicated relationships between mothers and daughters and sisters. I read it on vacation and it was truly the perfect book to read on the beach. You can read Amy’s full review here.
I started Sunrise on Half Moon Bay by Robyn Carr I’m like, this sounds too depressing. Parents affected by disability, caregiving, lost relationships, infant loss. I’m thinking no way, Robyn. You’re not ripping my heart out today. But, then I get about 2 to 3 chapters in & I find out about a tawdry affair. Okay, Robyn. My drama loving heart is all in! Throw in sisters each trying to start over & this is a winner! Definitely a great book about sisters.
A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan is a story centered around family, secrets, love, loss & new beginnings. This is just what I was hoping for. Of course, Sarah Morgan delivers the goods! The following is from Amy’s review. You hear from all three women in the family, mom Maggie, and daughters Katie and Rosie and I just adored all three of them for various reasons. I connected to Maggie as a wife and mom and both daughters were relatable for me as well, although Katie was prickly and it took me some time to warm up to her. This doesn’t fit solely under a romance umbrella or a straight up WF novel either because it has both romance between all the main characters and it also explores the dynamics between mother and daughter and sisters.
This is a multigenerational tale told in alternating points of view, it begins in the 1950s and follows a young Jo and Bethie and I’m such a sucker for stories about sisters, so I was already invested from the start. It spans the years through 2016 and is on the longer side, so this really allowed the author to do a deep dive into the characterization and man, did she do a phenomenal job developing these two women.

While I enjoyed all of the Sweeney sisters and what they individually brought to the table he stole much of the show. It’s always interesting to see how a parent’s influence can affect the dynamics of an entire family and this focuses heavily on how Bill’s behavior and secrets shaped each of his four daughters. Each woman was well-drawn and complex and I enjoyed taking this journey with them. You can read Amy’s full review here.
This is one of my all-time favorites! The Christmas Sisters is also my introduction to Sarah Morgan fangirl status. I love her books & this one is so heartwarming. Sisters each dealing with their own issues trying to come together at Christmas. Honestly, read it any time of the year for a feel-good family tale. The relationships between these three sisters are so special & memorable.
When Last Chance Matinee begins, we’re introduced to three very different women; sisters Allie and Des and Cara. Allie and Des have no idea Cara exists and Cara wasn’t aware that her father had another family either. When their father, Fritz dies, the women are all present at the reading of his will. Pretty compelling way to start a book, and when they’re told the only way to receive their inheritance is to move to Hidden Falls and renovate an old family theater, to say they’re shocked, angry, and blindsided is a huge understatement.

Slightly South of Simple by Kristy Woodson Harvey is a wonderful read about family, secrets & sisterly love. Read this if you’re looking to start a series that gives you all the feels. Sisters, secrets & an idyllic family home make up the first book in the Peachtree Bluff series. Throw in a town with Stars Hollow vibes & a book focusing on each sister & this series is a delight!
The Waverleys share a long family history in the small town of Bascom, North Carolina. Allen shares the family’s secrets, love triangles & throw in a magic apple tree & I am hooked. Garden Spells is an enchanting combination of Chocolat, Practical Magic with a sprinkling of The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. This story was so fun & has a sequel, First Frost.
There is still some of her trademark sweet romance here, but it definitely explores the dynamics of the women in the Davenport family while the romance plays a much smaller role giving it a more mature vibe. You can read Amy’s full review here. This is definitely a heartwarming book about sisters.
Wow this book was such an emotional read, way more than I was expecting it to be! There were highs and lows, ups and downs and I loved every minute of getting to know the dysfunctional Hempstead family. You can read Amy’s full review here.
The Lemon Sisters is about second chances, sisters & a nice helping of romance. This is such a great sisters story. One sister is returning home & the other is needing a break. It’s fun, heartwarming & so special! It’s part of the Wildstone series, but each book is standalone. Jill has another series that’s super cute too!
Such an emotional & beautiful tale about sisters during World War II. Get your tissues ready. Kristin Hannah writes an epic historical fiction novel with this one. Its breathtaking, beautiful & so emotional.
While this is a darker & suspenseful tale, it centers around a relationship between sisters. There’s also a TV series on Apple TV based on this book, Truth Be Told. Sisters, a podcast & a murder make up this tale. Something about this family & these characters is so relatable. I am a 48 Hours lover & reading this book from the view of the family changed my perception of how some of these murder stories can be exploited and/or open deep family wounds. Overall, this was an intriguing & satisfying read & I can’t wait to see what Kathleen does next.
We hope you enjoy this list of Books About Sisters! We will definitely update it as we find more sister stories.
