3.0 out of 5 stars - "Sisterhood is not always by birth, it's by love."
Yes, you can go home again as Meggie O'Rourke finds when she returns to Portland, Oregon, broken and damaged. She has come back to the failing family business to take over the reins of Lace, Satin, and Baubles - a lingerie company started by her grandmother. She reconnects with her dysfunctional but lively family that includes her two sisters, Tory and Lacey, who are also very involved in the running of the business.
Naturally and predictably, there is a romance. Family squabbles. Problems with Lacey's children and with Tory's husband. Meggie is, however, a total mess from a bad marriage and is plagued by night mares and vivid daydreams that won't allow her time for anything but work. She vows to get the family business back on track and into the black. Her ideas for capturing more sales of their products include interviewing her employees about their favorite memories involving bras and lingerie. She's surprised by the stories she hears and this propels her into healing and binds the ties with her sisters and family tighter than ever.
Fast paced and entertaining read. It's funny in places and poignant in others.
