I've been on this journey since book 1. Its been revealing, emotive, shown me how a family can become so damaged, pulling together in this story didn't happen and the split came almost immediantely as each individual struggled with the kidnap.
I just loved it. I would highly recommend this series, you will be so moved by it.

This is a book about a family that's been broken and how they must put the pieces back together again. It's a wonderful addition to the Search For Love series.( And readers of the series will recognize Gillian from earlier books, too.) Great read!
After the younger sister of Clare Thaddeus was taken from their home and did not ever return, her life was never the same. Her parents eventually got a divorce, and she was rather unruly during her teenage years. Now a single mother with a defiant sixteen-year-old daughter, Clare wishes for more harmony in her life but sadly does not believe things will change anytime soon.
When word is received that a lead has surfaced and her missing sister could perhaps be living in another city, Clare wonders how this will affect not only her parents but her own life as well. Each family member handles this shocking disclosure in a different way. The lack of communication puts much distance between them, and Clare can only hope they will find a way to support each other as they get more facts.
Regardless of the storyline, Karen Rose Smith constantly delves into the lives of her characters and concentrates on their feelings. Although there may be plenty of stressful predicaments and sometimes a positive outcome seems doubtful, Ms. Smith manages to offer a glimmer of hope in often creative ways. HER SISTER is filled with family drama, and the emotional behavior of the characters is realistically depicted time and again. The members of the Thaddeus family have definitely had more than their share of challenging events that required them to make exceedingly crucial decisions on several occasions. What these people had to go through is a genuine nightmare, and how they responded to the situation gives insight into their inner personalities. When other problems arise later in their lives, the past continues to have a hold on them and strongly affects any current reactions. While I did not always agree with each response made some of these individuals, it did make them come across as more convincing as everyone makes a bad choices, especially when facing nerve-racking circumstances. What motivates the actions of the three main women in HER SISTER are often described with very emotional details, and my own heart frequently ached for the reasoning behind their feelings. There are plenty of outbursts overflowing with a myriad of sentiments, and these conversations left me feeling their joy, pain or even confusion. Clare, Amanda and Shara get to experience much of what life has to offer, and Ms. Smith certainly gives them an abundance of obstacles to prevail over. The men in their lives greatly influence what these women ultimately decide to do, and every scene with them is very true-to-life. Several characters from previous books in the Search For Love series are featured, and their contributions are very important. HER SISTER is emotionally satisfying with realistic personal relationships plus believable situations where romance and mystery entwine.
Single Titles review - 4.5 Stars
The basics of the story are all there, but it's like two books crammed into one. This means that we are left with too many questions at the end. There are two distinct storylines runnning on parallel lines. Yes, most of the characters are involved in both stories, but it just didn't work.
What happens with Joe? Or the baby? And what about Amy & Beth? Definitely not an ending. And a sequel would have too many repetitions. A total disappointment.
When Clare was five years old her little sister Lynie was abducted and from that day on all of the families lives will be changed forever.
As Clare was growing older she felt felt like her mom, Amanda and her dad, Max were always preoccupied with trying to find Lynie and become a happy family again. The problem is that as Clare got older she started acting out and found herself unexpectedly pregnant and becomes a very young mother to a daughter named Shara.
Clare is trying to make it on her own bringing up a sixteen year old which could be a challenge in itself but doing it as a single mom is not easy. Shara is always testing the boundaries and
Clare really does not have the closeness with her mom or dad that might help her thru her daily struggles to bring up her daughter.
A terrible event occurs and it is one that is going to bring Clare, and both her parents together along with her neighbor Joe who proves now more then ever that he has always been their for her but she just was afraid of getting involved.
Clare has never recovered from the disappearance of her younger sister twenty-seven years ago when Clare was five years old, and neither have her parents. Now an adult, Clare has a family of her own that consists of her sixteen-year-old daughter and her now divorced parents. She's made a life for herself and her daughter but when Clare's daughter, Shara, starts acting out and finds herself in trouble, Shara decides to run away instead of telling her mother what's going on.
Faced with another loved one disappearing on her, Clare tries desperately to find her daughter. But she also finds solace in her neighbor Joe who would like to be more than just neighbors.
While everyone is frantically trying to find Shara, Clare and her parents discover that the past they've tried to move on from may be what holds them all together.
I wasn't sure what to expect from HER SISTER since I had advanced warning that it wasn't a straight romance novel. But I will say that this book, which is the seventh installment of the Search for Love series, was a pleasant surprise. It was filled with suspense and a little mystery with a little smattering of romance mixed it. But what kept me reading was the investment that I made in the Thaddeus family--Clare, her mother and father, and her daughter. They were all affected in different ways by the tragic events surrounding Clare's sister's kidnapping. It was amazing how a twenty-seven-year old event shaped the events in the present.
I was happy to see that everyone had the potential to have a happy ever after even though all of the events in the story weren't completely tied up in a bow for us by the end. I certainly wouldn't be averse to visiting with this family again if Karen Rose Smith would like to write more about them. (*hint, hint*)
Overall, I thought that HER SISTER was one of those stories that would warm the heart and make you want to give a tight hug to those you love.
