Holly Kerr grew up as a country girl but now calls Toronto home. After 'retiring' from her job to raise her three kids, Holly jumped into writing very quietly while her kids took very long, enforced naps. Now the author of eleven books, ranging from action-packed Chick Lit, fun rom-com/mom-com, and sister-saga woman's fiction, she has even tried her hand at writing middle-grade dragon tales for her kids. Holly stays awake with countless cups of tea, the occasional Pepsi, before-dinner wine, and a weekly dirty martini.

Loving your sisters is easy. Liking them is the hard part.
Meet the Skatt sisters—five redheads with absolutely nothing in common but their fierce love for each other. In the town of Forest Hills, the sisters are famous for their father abandoning them, the ghost of their mother hanging around the family home, and the legendary fights between the youngest girls, Brenna and Cat.
After graduating at the top of her class, Brenna shakes the small-town, mushroom smelling dirt off her sneakers and leaves everything behind, settling as far away from the tiny Northern Ontario town as she can. But after fourteen years, all it takes is one cheating husband and a possible assault charge for Brenna to realize the only option she has left is to go home.
The youngest of the five sisters, Cat wants nothing to do with Brenna’s return. She grew up in the shadow of her brilliant sister but after Brenna left, Cat found happiness in the small town, content to live in the family home with the ghost of their mother. She left a trail of broken hearts and failed marriages in her wake before finding love with Brenna’s ex, Seamus. With Brenna coming home, Cat’s afraid Brenna will take back what she left behind, including Seamus.
Sibling rivalries, old grudges, and at least one knock-out, drag-down kitchen fight ensues as Brenna and Cat are forced under the same roof. They may be sisters but are there too many grudges and too much jealousy for them to be friends?
“Holly Kerr has done a beautiful job of crafting a family with real relationships--and an absolute delight to read.”

The Skatt sisters are notorious in the tiny town of Forest Hills for their redheads’ temper, sisterly fights and their father leaving them with their mother and her questionable mental stability. When she dies, eldest sister Maggie steps in to take care of her sisters.
Maggie and Mike are just as famous. After a teenage pregnancy that ended happily with a strong marriage and five daughters of their own, they’re a force to be reckoned with in the tiny town.
But when the unthinkable happens, Maggie is blindsided with the grief. For months, Maggie finds comfort in her talks with Mike's ghost, but the list of things Maggie can’t bring herself to tell him begins to add up; things like grandbabies, and his girls having boyfriends, and Brady Todd, not to mention the fight with the customer at FoodMart and the visit from the police.
And Maggie can't tell Mike about the return of Ben Higgins, because how do you talk to the ghost of your dead husband about the fact she thinks she might be ready to move on with another man?
Luckily, Maggie's sisters are there for her, if she'll only let them.
