Lauren Baratz-Logsted Schedules the Release of Her Long Awaited Women's Fiction Novel, "The Sisters Club"

For the last few years Lauren Baratz-Logsted has been focusing on the YA/children's portion of her career, but on August 18th she'll finally have a new book out for adults. It's called THE SISTERS CLUB, published by Diversion Books, and it's Women's Fiction about four very different women who come together to provide the sister function in each other's lives.

GoodReads' #1 Top Reviewer called it "My favorite book of the year" and NYT bestselling author Elizabeth Letts added "You will love it!"

It's currently available for preorder as an ebook at a few sites using this handy link:

And it will also be in trade paperback:

I personally read this book and found it to be fabulous! As someone who doesn't have any sisters of her own, I could totally relate with filling the sister function in my life with a friend. Lauren's writing is enjoyable and she does a good job keeping the reader interested. My book club is planning on reading this book within the next few months, as I've already told my friends this is an absolute must read!

Official Book Summary:

Some families you are born into. Some you choose. And some choose you.

Four women have little in common other than where they live and the joyous complications of having sisters. Cindy waits for her own life to begin as she sees her sister going in and out of hospitals. Lise has made the boldest move of her life, even as her sister spends every day putting herself at risk to improve the lives of others. Diana is an ocean apart from her sister, but worries that her marriage is the relationship separated by the most distance. Sylvia has lost her twin sister to breast cancer, a disease that runs in the family, and fears that she will die without having ever really lived.

When Diana places an ad in the local newsletter, Cindy, Lise, and Sylvia show up thinking they are joining a book club, but what they discover is something far deeper and more profound than any of them ever imagined.

With wit, charm, and pathos, this mesmerizing tale of sisters, both born and built, enthralls on every page.

Author Bio:

Lauren Baratz-Logsted was an independent bookseller and buyer for 11 years before deciding to take
a chance on herself as a novelist. While trying to sell her books, Baratz-Logsted worked variously as a Publishers Weekly reviewer, a freelance editor, a sort-of librarian, and a window washer. Her first novel, The Thin Pink Line, about a woman who fakes an entire pregnancy, was published by Red Dress Ink in 2003 as their own first-ever hardcover. It was published in 11 countries and was the first book from any Harlequin imprint ever to receive a starred Kirkus review. Baratz-Logsted has since had over 20 books published for adults (Vertigo), teens (The Twin's Daughter) and children (The Sisters 8 series, created with her husband and daughter). Recently, she has published a few ebooks as well, including a comedic romance for adults, The Bro-Magnet. Baratz-Logsted lives in Danbury, CT, with her wonderful husband Greg and equally wonderful daughter Jackie.

Today's review and preview for The Sisters Club was provided by Crystal Otto. Crystal is a church musician, business owner, active journaler, writer and blogger as well as a dairy farmer. She lives in Reedsville, Wisconsin with her husband, four young children (Carmen 8, Andre 7, Breccan nearly 2, and Delphine 5 months), two dogs, two rabbits, four little piggies, and over 200 Holsteins.
