HOUSE OF SECRETS by Tracie Peterson

Bethany House publishers
Contemporary Fiction

Imagine 3 little girls on a stairwell landing, watching their father mix medication for their mentally ill  mother, while crying, and saying he's doing it for the children. Then their mother is hauled away in an ambulance, and dies.
Can you imagine their thoughts?

 Then raised in boarding schools and  by nannies while their father works.
Fast forward about 15 years, and their father wants them to all go back to the vacation home where they were staying when their mother died.  He tells them he has news for them.

On top of all this, Bailee has been offered a job in NY, with Mark Delahunt, who she feels more than a bit of attraction to, but she isn't ready for romance.

This is what faces Bailee Cooper and her sisters, Geena and Piper, as they head for Washington state, and a meeting with their father, and his surprise.

I received this book from Bethany House to read and review.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions expressed here are my own, I'm not required to give positive reviews.

My opinion of this book is it scores  4 out of 5 stars.

Sounds like a sad but interesting read. I like your new format. Was thinking about doing this but don't know if the others would know how to use it...
