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.
"What more can any woman want? Sisters, Ink weaves the love of sisters, the fun of scrapbooking, and a romance as sugary and tingling as Sweet Home Alabama. A must read for those who love southern fiction."--DiAnn Mills, author of
Leather and Lace and When the Nile Runs Red

"Fun . . . funny . . . fantastic! Rebeca Seitz has brought together scrapbooking and sisterhood in a lively romp, with a love for going home again."--Eva Marie Everson, coauthor of The Potluck Club series

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."

    This review was written for Sisters, Ink - eBook.
    Spoiler alerts involved.... Meg has an "emotional affair" with a married man. I had difficulty trying to figure out which characters in this "Christian" book were actually Christian. Seems anything goes. Friday nights are spent at dance halls, and instead of spending time with God when Meg is at a low point, she opts to sing in a jazz/blues club as her way of working through the fallout of her choices instead of with the One to whom we need to look to for guidance. They did actually discuss going to Sunday School a time or two in the novel, but everything else overpowered that aspect. Speaking of "anything goes", sometimes we were given too much info on personal details of Joy's infertility struggles. I don't really find "peeing on a stick" or "tearing my clothes off and trying" to be details I want to read in a Christian book. Let's have a little class. I also found it quite odd how the author put so much emphasis on the weight issue of the wife of the "married man" as though her inability to maintain a trim figure was somehow to blame for his infidelity. In addition, after the affair, much time was given to Meg's begging and pleading for Darin's forgiveness, the plotting for them to reunite, but only one sentence, really just a mention in passing on down the road, was written about her asking for God's forgiveness. Throughout, Meg behaved indignantly towards married individuals who had affairs. It was quite hypocritical behavior. And while Darin was not upset and quite forgiving that Meg had been seeing someone else, once he found out it was "only" an emotional affair but with a married man, he suddenly became inconsolable and not willing to reconcile, which seemed unrealistic given his earlier responses. All in all, it leaned way too heavily on worldly things and not near enough in the spiritual, the main character was hypocritical, some of the story was unrealistic, and I finished the book almost feeling like I had been to a place I shouldn't have went. I will not finish the series.

    A runner, that is what Tandy Ann Sinclair's sisters keep calling her, and she does not understand why. Tandy is running from life, from a life with the man she is in love with, from life in a small town, from the memories of her mother. Running. But she is getting tired of running and this wonderful book, is the story of Tandy.Sisters Ink, four sisters, all different, all adopted into a family of love. Four sisters who love to scrapbook any chance they can. Two married sisters, two single sisters. This book is a beautiful story of life. Tandy is intent on fulfilling her mother's dreams and her dreams, she think, but soon realizes, she might not have really understood what her mother was wanting for her.Follow along as Tandy re-connects with her high school love, and learns the importance of her family. Rebecca Seitz, has captured the very essence of Tandy, you will feel like you know her personally by the end of this book. This book is another one of B&H's amazing books from Pure Enjoyment. This is the second book I have reviewed from them, and I just love their books, MOST definitely a 5 star rating book. Family friendly, girlfriend friendly! I could go on and on about this book, but I don't want to give away the story. `

    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.
