Book Review: The Sister Pact by Cami Checketts

The Sister Pact
by Cami Checketts

Author Cami Checketts knows how to put her characters in danger - and how to get them out of it. It's the journey from one to the other that hooks the reader. In Sister Pact, sisters Allison and Savannah are very close, so close that one would do anything for the other. And when Allison is gravely injured by an unknown party, Savannah is determined to discover who that party is, and to see that justice is done, no matter what risks she must take. To Savannah's outrage, she is even considered a suspect and must prove her own innocence while trying to find the real perpetrator. She becomes enmeshed in a love-hate relationship with an oh-so-handsome officer of the law in her quest, and major conflicts arise as her dogged pursuit of the truth interferes with his.

The bond of sisterhood is of course a major theme in this book. The subject of eating disorders is also addressed, and through love and support from family and friends, one character whose lifestyle borders on the disorder decides to conquer it. Healthy living and healthy relationships are also emphasized, and several other characters also confront their own personal demons and realize that loving help is there for the asking.

The reader knows there are more stories to be told about these two strong and likable women, and the potential for a series is surely there.
