Blue Autumn Cruise, Sisters in All Seasons Book 3, by Lisa Williams Kline
As acquisitions editor on this series with amazing author Lisa Williams Kline, I fell in love with the characters of Diana and Stephanie, the contemporary setting, and realistic depictions of hard topics-divorce and mental health. This series was one I was sad to have done, because I was in their world for so long, I did not want it to end.
Publisher agreed, and the four-book series became five. Each book also includes in some way an animal rescue as a side-theme, as the author's husband is a veterinarian. Because of this side theme of animals, this book appeals to boys as well, who I have actually sold to directly, 10 and 11 year-old boys who chose this book out of those displayed for sale. Highly recommended for middle grade readers. -Kim Childress
It may take a miracle―or a hurricane―to save this family vacation.
Stepsisters Stephanie and Diana undergo another adventure when they embark on a Grand Cayman cruise with their extended family to celebrate their grandmother’s 80th birthday. But the vacation gets complicated with the addition of an eccentric Granny and a video-taping manic cousin. Plus Stephanie’s growing interest in boys makes Diana’s Mood-o-Meter swing like a pendulum. When the girls discover a plot to smuggle a rare, endangered Blue Iguana, Diana’s fury rages to the surface and threatens to ruin the entire birthday party―or unite the clan for a rescue mission.
The third installment of Sisters in All Seasons is full of humor, heartache, friendships, and very real family drama aboard a cruise-ship―where there’s no escaping if you want to run away! Join Stephanie and Diana once again as they tread the wavering waters of step-sisterhood.
