Sister's Ink Review

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Sister's Ink

Broadman & Holman Books (February 1, 2008)


Rebeca Seitz


Rebeca Seitz is Founder and President of Glass Road Public Relations. An author for several years, PRINTS CHARMING was her first novel.

Rebeca cut her publicity teeth as the first dedicated publicist for the fiction division of Thomas Nelson Publishers. In 2005, Rebeca resigned from WestBow and opened the doors of GRPR, the only publicity firm of its kind in the country dedicated solely to representing novelists writing from a Christian worldview.

Rebeca makes her home in Kentucky with her husband, Charles, and their son, Anderson.


Sisters, Ink marks the first in a series of novels written by, for, and about scrapbookers. At the center of the creativity and humor are four unlikely young adult sisters, each separately adopted during early childhood into the loving home of Marilyn and Jack Sinclair.

Ten years after their mother Marilyn has died, the multi-racial Sinclair sisters (Meg, Kendra, Tandy, and Joy) still return to her converted attic scrapping studio in the small town of Stars Hill, Tennessee, to encourage each other through life’s highs and lows.

Book one spotlights headstrong Tandy, a successful yet haunted attorney now living back in Orlando where she spent the first eight years of her life on the streets as a junkie’s kid. When a suddenly enforced leave of absence at work leads her to an extended visit with her sisters in Stars Hill, a business oppor­tunity, rekindled romance, and fresh understanding of God’s will soon follow.

"What more can any woman want? Sisters, Ink weaves the love of sisters, the fun of scrapbooking, and a romance as sugary and tingling as Sweet Home Alabama. A must read for those who love southern fiction."--DiAnn Mills, author of Leather and Lace and When the Nile Runs Red
"Fun . . . funny . . . fantastic! Rebeca Seitz has brought together scrapbooking and sisterhood in a lively romp, with a love for going home again."--Eva Marie Everson, coauthor of The Potluck Club series.

My Review:

First of all, I just need to say that I absolutely love the cover of this book! The color combination and the photos set up in a scrappy way are perfect with this first book in a scrapbooking series! The story itself was entertaining and I think it would be a perfect “beach read”. I did wish for more depth in certain parts and less silliness in other sections. I also found that this story was quite predictable…not that I like to read about tragedy, but I would have liked to have had something happen that just stopped me in my tracks, ya know?

With all that said, I do think the relationship between the sisters is wonderful and the fact that the parents adopted all these gals from different backgrounds is fantastic! I also love the setting of a small town…I love the atmosphere that the author created. It made me long for that small town living!

Be sure to check out the website for this book! There is a real Sister’s Ink Club for all those scrapbookers out there! That’s pretty neat! I also noticed that the second book in this series will be released later this year. I believe this one will be about Kendra…who I really liked…so I just may have to check that one out...we’ll see.

Anyway, even though this has not been one of my favorite books, I still think it’s entertaining and worthy of a read….especially if you can read it at the beach with a fruity drink in hand! Lol!

Great review. For a second, I thought you were going to hit me with an eyelet! LOL!

I agree with your review. Liked the sister love going on, the scrapbooking sillies, not so much :-o) Good, easy, light read.
