Publisher's Description

Sisters, Inkmarks the first in a series of novels written by, for, and about scrapbookers. At the center of the creativity and humor are four unlikely young adult sisters, each separately adopted during early childhood into the loving home of Marilyn and Jack Sinclair.
 
Ten years after their mother Marilyn has died, the multi-racial Sinclair sisters (Meg, Kendra, Tandy, and Joy) still return to her converted attic scrapping studio in the small town of Stars Hill, Tennessee, to encourage each other through life’s highs and lows.
 
Book one spotlights headstrong Tandy, a successful yet haunted attorney now living back in Orlando where she spent the first eight years of her life on the streets as a junkie’s kid. When a suddenly enforced leave of absence at work leads her to an extended visit with her sisters in Stars Hill, a business oppor­tunity, rekindled romance, and fresh understanding of God’s will soon follow.

And that’s what Rebeca Seitz delivers with this tale of faith, romance, and four sisters’ shared love of scrapbooking. A delightful combination!” - Tamara Leigh, Author of Splitting Harriet and Perfecting Kate

Publisher's Weekly

Seitz (Prints Charming) continues to integrate fiction and scrapbooking themes in her new chick lit series, with mixed results. Thirty-year-old Tandy Sinclair is a hotshot attorney in Orlando, Fla., who is trying to quell memories of her homeless childhood. When an ethical dilemma causes Tandy to take a leave of absence from work, she heads home to the small town of Stars Hill, Tenn. There, she runs into her hunky high school sweetheart, who has started a band and now runs a cafe. Tandy's three adopted and diverse sisters (in an equal-opportunity contrivance that feels forced, one is Asian, one African-American and one Caucasian) urge Tandy to re-evaluate her priorities and give her old flame a second chance. References to scrapbooking are worked into as many scenes as possible, which will please hobbyists. However, problems plague the novel, including prolonged passages, lengthy back-to-back dialogue and too much mechanical detail. Other passages are breathlessly dramatic (“Daddy waited down that winding gravel path. Daddy—and a lifetime of memories”). The timeworn cliché of the city girl returning home to the country to find love and wisdom is in full force, and the ending holds no surprises. Plans call for each book in the series to feature a different sister; readers will hope subsequent installments have more substance. (Jan.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

Seitz hits the right note with the first book in her series featuring four adopted sisters sharing a love for scrapbooking. Tandy's character is fascinating, and readers will take to her and her desire to redeem her past. The romance is sweet and adds an extra dimension to the plot.

Romantic Times Book Reviews

. . . a memorable tale of love, tough choices, truth and tears. I love the characters and family connection in this sweet story. It is passionate, if not intense."
 
Church Libraries
Winter 2007-2008

"An interesting tale starring an unhappy urbanized sibling finding love and happiness by returning to her urban roots."
 
"An entertaining tale with a fascinating concept of diverse adopted sisters who are also best friends always there for one another as affirmed by the theraputic scrapbooks they maintained."

    Tandy Sinclair is forced on a mandatory leave of absence from her law firm to "gain perspective,", i.e., to learn to keep her mouth shut and to play the corporate game.Tired and needing a heaping helping of "scrapping, sweets, and her sisters" she travels home to Stars Hill, Tennessee home of the nosiest buttinskies Ive seen since, well, my hometown. Homeland Security has nothing on Star Hills information pipeline!While at home, Tandy bumps into her former boyfriend, a green-eyed cutie named Clay who broke her heart by abandoning her to join the military ten years earlier.Sisters, Ink (Scrapbooker's Series #1)portrays what a family should be: accepting, loving, inclusive, and there for you. The fact the sisters were adopted is a refreshing twist to the story. The camaraderie shown between the sisters and their relationship with their father was endearing.And the romance? No complaints there either. I like stories revisting highschool love. I personally dont have any high school romances Id want to revisit but it is always fun to read about them and see them in the movies. I look forward to reading Coming Unglued (Sisters, Ink) in book #2 in the Sisters' Ink series.

    This was an absolutely adorable book and I do look forward to the sequel. I usually do not enjoy contemporary Christian fiction, but I really got into this book with plenty of giggles. Only two downfalls in my mind for this novel: one, two name switched editing errors, but not bad enough to destroy the book just caused a double take of confusion; two, I'm not a fan of Hollywood drama referencing, but that's just my personality. In the past year I've been getting into crafts more and more, especially quilting. With my quilting I have found just how important it is to find a group of ladies to be with for ideas as well as just plain 'ole company. Scrapbooking is something that I have not gotten into, but then I haven't tried either. Yet, with reading this book I felt that I was a part of a dear and loving group of ladies. I know that if I were to take up this as a new hobby that I would want the group of fellowship just as much. The basis of this book shows that anyone from anywhere can do anything if they try and commit themselves to it. Tandy definitely accomplished the world for herself and found love. Sometimes we are so certain that we have to do certain things that we lose sight of why we are attempting anything. This is a great book for the working woman to realize that she needs some time for life as well as a career. This is a fabulous sit down and be cozy read.

    Sisterhood, romance, and conflicting career choices. Rebeca Seitz's new book Sisters, Ink has it all, including a delightful montage of characters. Sisters by adoption, the Sinclair girls--Tandy, Kendra, Meg and Joy--are as diverse (and colorful) as the novelties in a scrapbooking catalog. But despite their differences, they are devoted to each other and their widowed father. The sisters lost their mother prematurely, but Marilyn Sinclair's memory is fittingly treasured and preserved through the girls' love of scrapbooking together. This book centers on Tandy Sinclair, a 30-year-old, career-driven attorney with a successful practice in Orlando. When Tandy returns home to rural Tennessee for an unexpected vacation, she learns that life has changed in her hometown of Stars Hill. Her father is dating and her ex-boyfriend, Clay Kelner, is back in town. It's a bit too much for Tandy to accept. Although Clay is gaga over her by the end of their two-week romantic reunion, she resists the notion that they should make permanent plans, and she returns to Orlando. (How any girl could think twice about Clay's proposal is a mystery to me, because Seitz has crafted the perfect young hero.) Fortunately, Tandy uses her head to figure out a puzzle her heart couldn't resolve, and... Well, the rest is best memorialized in a 12" x 12", refillable wedding scrapbook with lots of white tulle and lace embellishments.

    This heartwarming story pleasantly surprised me with its humor that got me to smile real big and even laugh out loud several times. Rebeca captures the essence of what goes on between sisters, their love, fun, joy, heart ache and bond. The sisterhoods described in this book made me miss the fun and laughter I have with my own sisters.Tandy Sebatian is single, self-reliant, unattached, successful attorney in a prestigious law firm who is forced to take a leave of absence from her job. Things have heated up on this one case and stay away until things cool off.Home!! How long has it been? Too long since she was able to be hugged by her sisters and Dad. Home!! Memories of Laughter, good food and scrapbooking. Home!! That sounded so good to her right now. Tandy headed for Stars Hill which was her childhood home. She hasnt been there in 10 years. She re-discovers emotional baggage she had forgotten, memories she cherished, people she loved, and the relationships she missed with her sisters, and dad. Tandy also starts thinking God was easier in Orlando, she could keep him at arms length by standing anonymously among thousands of people in a mega sanctuary.. She was used to keeping everyone in her life at arms length. It was simple that way; less painful; and messy. It makes it easier to run away from an uncomfortable situation; no strings attached.This book is definitely fun and it pulls on your heart strings. Theres a few things to learn too. Grab a copy, get to a comfortable chair and give yourself a real treat.
