Photobucket
When Emmie Wilcox was seven years old, her father, frustrated with his older daughter Roxanne's defiance, threw her out. So, at seventeen, Roxy left and Norton Wilcox forbade her name ever to be mentioned again. He even refused to call the police to find her. Nearly eight years later, Emmie learns that her sister has become a high-priced New York call girl, staying in a fancy hotel only a dozen blocks from where they live. She sets out to spy on her sister and learn more about her life—triggering a series of events and adventures that could destroy her fragile family for good.
FORBIDDEN SISTER will have readers trapped from start to finish, eager to follow along with Emmie and her quest to discover her forbidden sister.

The 411:

When I was a kid my sister and I devoured the Flowers in the Attic series about the Dollanganger family. Our love of this writer is still as fresh as it was when we were 12 & 13 years old.  Unlike a lot of the other reviews I have seen, saying the book has flat characters, I really enjoyed getting to know Emmie and Roxy.

In this book, Emmie longs to know her black sheep sister Roxy who was sent packing after her father threw her out 8 years prior. Emmie has always tried to make her parents proud and felt it was her duty after what they supposedly had to endure with Roxy.  When She finally gets a moment to spy on her sister, she sees a beautiful, refined woman, who lives in a great apartment and takes limo rides. 

Emmie learns that Roxy is an escort and wishes she could get to know her sister. 

When a turn of events put the sisters in each others presence after 8 years, Emmie and Roxy must find a way to help each other out of they allow themselves to feel for the other.  Can the girls put aside their early years and learn to love and lean on each other like siblings do? Only time will tell, I can't wait for book 2.

While it is not VC, the feeling is still there and we are happy her family is continuing to put out these books.
