The Spinster Sisters

Stacey Ballis

Berkley, Mar 2007, $14.00

ISBN: 0425213560

THE SPINSTER SISTERS Jodi and Jill Springold take advantage of their single status by creating a money-making enterprise from their lack of marital status. They have a radio show Lunch with the Spinster Sisters and two best-selling books that encourage the virtual of the single life.

However, their business including a proposed TV show becomes shaky when Jill informs Jodi that she is engaged to Hunter. Though she thinks the world of Hunter and so does her two spinster aunts, Jodi believes "the end of an era" has occurred. She panics not so much because their empire will collapse from within, but if Jill marries, she will be a lonely surviving spinster sister. Suddenly the backdoor Johnnies she dates and her ex-husband Brant look good as possible mates, but that would mean giving up the rewards of spinsterhood, a tough sell to a confirmed bachelorette.

The ensemble cast makes THE SPINSTER SISTERS into a terrific chick lit tale as readers will enjoy the antics of the precious aunts, the back door beaus, the ex-husband, the fianc , the radio staff, and especially the two title stars. Everyone seems real and unique as Stacey Ballis provides a wonderfully deep family drama focusing on a simple, natural step that impacts all the players with the changes in the prime relationships.
