A Sister’s Power is the third novel in the Reeves Sisters series by Cydney Rax. Though this book is part of a series, the backstory is interwoven in a manner that made this a decent standalone.
A Sister’s Power is a tale about difficult familial relationships. This novel continues the story of the five Reeves sisters. Alita, the eldest and nosiest, has ongoing financial struggles and is insecure in her relationship with her boyfriend. Burgundy, the entrepreneurial sibling, is starting a new relationship that is frowned upon by her eight-year-old daughter, who just wants her deceased father back. Coco, the wild and wayward sister, struggles with betrayal and her rapidly worsening problems with the law. Drucilla, fondly known as Dru, is intelligent and level-headed, but struggles with feelings of inadequacy and deteriorating health, while attempting to finish her college education and kickstart her dream business. Elyse, the youngest and most vulnerable, is still struggling to deal with her difficult childhood and her newly defined romantic relationship. The sisters are constantly battling life and each other. There are secrets, dramas and betrayals yet to be revealed.
Cydney Rax finishes this series perfectly. The characters are now completely developed and utterly believable. The plot twists are still dramatic and unexpected. The writing is wholly insightful. I was enraptured and enjoyed every aspect of this final novel and the series as a whole. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to those who enjoy dramatic urban fiction.
My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
