A gripping novel about two sisters who are left homeless by their mother's death and the lengths the fierce older sister will go to protect her beloved young charge The hardscrabble Chase women--Mary, Hannah, and their mother Diane--have been eking out a living running a tiny seaside motel that has been in the family for generations, inviting trouble into their lives for just as long. Eighteen-year-old Mary Chase is a force of nature: passionate, beautiful, and free-spirited. Her much younger sister, Hannah, whom Mary affectionately calls "Bunny," is imaginative, her head full of the stories of princesses and adventures that Mary tells to give her a safe emotional place in the middle of their troubled world. But when Diane dies in a car accident, Mary discovers the motel is worth less than the back taxes they owe. With few options, Mary's finely tuned instincts for survival kick in. As the sisters begin a cross-country journey in search of a better life, she will stop at nothing to protect Hannah. But Mary wants to protect herself, too, for the secrets she promised she would never tell--but now may be forced to reveal--hold the weight of unbearable loss. Vivid and suspenseful, The Sisters Chase is a whirlwind page-turner about the extreme lengths one family will go to find--and hold onto--love.

I had to ponder this one to fully form my opinion. Easy to read and just enough tension to make me want to keep reading, but something just didn't sit right with me. I really disliked Mary and just felt terrible for Hannah. Now that it's been a couple days, I think this book is utterly forgettable.

My cats wearing clothes are much more interesting. 💕 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #adventuresofthegmen #catsinclothes

I felt almost as bonded to Mary & Hannah (aka Mare & Bunny) as they were to one another. I worried about their safety as they road-tripped across America after their mother‘s sudden death, with Mary constantly pushing the limits to ensure that her kid sister was provided for. Mary‘s protective & maternal instinct, paired with her absolute refusal to deny her baser, animal nature, made for a fascinating & dimensional character study.

*cont‘d👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1: There‘s a dark, wild thread prowling through this novel & it hunted me down & ripped out my heart. I have no doubt that Sarah Healey keeps the hearts of her readers in a jeweled box, sitting innocently atop her writer‘s desk. 4mo

“Mary extended her arm out to her sister who knew nothing so well as the curve of Mary‘s side. And after a reluctant moment, Hannah folded into it, resting her head on Mary‘s shoulder.”

The intimacy between these two (& knowing that something happens to separate them) is killing me. 😭

As far as #BOTM picks, this one was pretty mediocre. Not bad, also not a favorite. It instantly sprang to mind though when I saw today‘s #maymoviemagic prompt, #behindthewheel.

Mary and Hannah are two sisters set adrift, driving across the country to try to find a place to put down roots after their mother does in a car crash.

Cinfhen This is one I did not read. There were a lot of mediocre titles that year you took the #BOTMchallenge🙄 7mo

The Sisters Chase is a beautiful story with a surprisingly fitting emotional ending. It‘s dark & filled with lies and secrets, but also hope with unconditional love and unbreakable family bonds. I highly recommend this compelling book.

I finally added this one to my BOTM box because they categorized it as a thriller. It's really picking up around 70 pages in, but I've had my guess about the ending since about chapter 2. I'm pretty much to the point where I can't put it down so I guess we'll see... 📖

Update: I was right. But I'm still glad I read this one!

The first third of this book I liked. But the last 2/3rds I loved! I didn‘t want to put it down and was so invested in the story. I did know where the story was headed once I figured out the timeline, but it didn‘t take away from the story. (I‘m slowly catching up on my #botm picks!)

Help! Is my math off? I thought Marry was 18, wouldn‘t that mean Mary was not 13 when she met Stefan. Do I have the ages off or is that right? 😬

Cityofamber I think I‘m a year off my current age and she‘s 19 now, so 14 when they met? 2y

I‘d love to read “The Sisters Chase.” I‘d heard nothing about it until @erinreads#50kgiveaway post & now I think I might be drooling a bit! It‘s got so many details that appeal to me: relationships between women, sisterhood, motherhood, & an ocean-side location! (I think there‘s seawater instead of blood coursing through my veins). My bunny, Moxie, wants me to mention that the best detail is that one of the characters is nicknamed “Bunny.”😉🐰

monalyisha @erinreads It reminds me a little bit of “The Salt God‘s Daughter,” which I read years ago & liked a whole bunch! Congrats on reaching such high #‘s! 🎉📈🙌🏻 (edited) 2y
erinreads I only learned about it through Book of the Month, but I was so happy with my choice that month! It‘s got a great complicated family dynamic! Good luck! 💕 And I‘ve never heard of The Salt God‘s Daughter, but I‘m adding it to my TBR now! 👍🏻 2y

I liked this one well enough. It‘s one of those books that is not heavy on plot, but heavy on untrustworthy and dislikable characters. Mainly the main character, Mary. She irritated the shit out of me. That tends to happen in books where the main character is SO GORGEOUS ALL MEN DIE. I enjoyed it, though, because it was light and easy.

I‘m trying to catch up on my BOTM picks and I just finished my June selection. This book was very good. It was a little slow going at first but it definitely picked up. This was a great book about the love of two sisters. There were some serious plot twists that I didn‘t see coming and there were points where I shed a few tears. Great read!

This was a fast read, and well written. I think some of my problems with it are that certain tropes in this book are some that just don't really work for me. So, I'd rate this a pick overall, but it wasn't really for me. #BOTM #BOTMBONANZA

One of my best friends also has a #botm subscription, so sometimes we swap books if we didn't get the same thing. It's the perfect way to get more books!

This book was super readable (it took me less than 3 days, just reading on my commute). It was an interesting look at the relationship between the sisters, but was ultimately pretty predictable.

MicheleinPhilly YAY for BOTM book swapping! I have a friend I do this with but we actually consult one another before we make our selections to hash out who is going to get what. ☺️ 2y
seebiscan @MicheleinPhilly That's a great plan! We'll have to start doing that. 👯 2y
