The black sheep of the family, Charlie, feels her life as a barista and exercise instructor doesn’t measure up to that of her gifted and successful sisters.

Dealing with their bereft father who is determined to sell the family motel, their loves old and new and a series of troublesome decisions doesn’t make life any easier, but when they go through their mother’s possessions and uncover the shocking secret of an old family curse, they begin to question everything they thought they knew.

A warm and wise novel about secrets revealed, finding your soulmate and the unique bond between sisters.

“There is a lot to like in this feel-good romance and just enough sizzle to satisfy. The relationships between the sisters reminds me of Monica McInerney’s family-focused narratives. This is a great book to curl up with on a lazy Sunday afternoon.” Rachael Wilson, Books & Publishing

The Patterson Girls is Rachael Johns at her absolute finest and may very well be the book of 2015.” AusRomToday

“Heartwarming, entertaining and well-characterised, The Patterson Girls gives readers another reason to love Rachael Johns’ writing. As a storyteller, she just keeps getting better and I’m looking forward to what she comes up with next.” Write Note Reviews.

“But oh! The twist! The twist was SO DAMN GOOD. It was potentially heart breaking and edge of your seat stuff. It took the emotion to a whole new level and turned everything I thought I knew about the Patterson girls on its head. Even though it was twisty-turny angsty, I think this was my favourite part of the book. Maybe I’m a character masochist, but…wow! Another example of what a brilliant writer Rachael Johns is.” Sam Still Reading.
