Join the scrapbooking craze with an unlikely quartet of adopted sisters! Everybody's surprised when headstrong Tandy Sinclair---a successful attorney in Orlando, Florida---returns home to Stars Hill, Tennessee, for an extended visit. But she isn't prepared for a tempting new business opportunity, a rekindled romance, and a fresh understanding of God's will. 320 pages, softcover from B&H.
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.

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. Daddyand 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.
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.

. . . 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."
"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."
