My Book Review – The Sister Pact: Home Is Where the Heart Is by Jacquie Biggar
The Sister Pact is a story about two sisters, Holly Tremaine and Susan, the twin brothers Steven and Levi. Holly was away from home for eight years to pursue her dream and became a violinist in New York. Her Lyme disease drove her home before Christmas holiday. Holly and her sister had grown apart for many unspoken issues. Holly was jealous of her sister marrying Steven who was once her boyfriend, and that her sister now had a husband with successful business as a Family Law Accredited Mediator, and their two lovely children. Whereas Susan was jealous of Holly being able to make her dream come true while she became a housewife and a mother but was short of pursuing her dream as a dancer with her own studio.
Steven invited his twin brother Levi to come from Vancouver to spend the holiday and get reacquainted with Holly. Holly had a one-night relationship with Levi when she was drunk after her sister’s wedding. Upon Holly’s arriving home, she was at odd with the tension between her and Susan. She also didn’t expect to see Levi coming to the family dinner. At the dinner table, the familiar scene of the parents arguing repeated.
After a hiking trip on the hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Holly and Levi found themselves in each other’s arms and secretly yearned for more. By talking to her father, Holly found out he and her mother were seeking separation. To her surprise, Susan left Steven and came to the parents’ house with her two children. She broke the news of seeing Steven with a woman.
Holly and Susan tried to talk to their parents to bring them back together. At the same time, Levi tried to talk to Susan while Holly tried to talk to Steven to fix their marriage.
In The Sister Pact: Home is Where the Heart Is, Jacquie Biggar skillfully packed the story with family conflicts, jealousy, and unresolved anger. She also painted a beautiful picture of caring, love, and forgiveness, home is always a home where we belong. Highly recommended.

In her own words: “My name is Jacquie Biggar. When I’m not acting like a total klutz, I am a wife, mother of one, grandmother, and a butler to my calico cat. My guilty pleasure is reality tv shows like Amazing Race and The Voice. I can be found every Monday night in my armchair plastered to the television laughing at Blake and Adam’s shenanigans. I love to hang at the beach with DH (darling hubby) taking pictures or reading romance novels (what else?). I have a slight Tim Hortons obsession, enjoy gardening, everything pink and talking to my friends.”
