Here’s a book for people who like Debbie Macomber and Jennifer Chiaverini--The Second Sister by Marie Bostwick. Set in fictional Nilson’s Bay in Door County, main character Lucy always felt like the second sister because her older sister Alice was bright and talented and her father’s favorite. When the sisters were in their teens, a near-drowning accident left Alice with a mental disability, and Lucy felt partially responsible. Lucy left Nilson’s Bay and now has a high powered job in politics.
