The Chicken Sisters is a tale of two estranged sisters competing against each other to win $ 100,000 for those they love.

Overall I enjoyed the book. Each chapter is told from the viewpoint of each sister, Amanda, or Mae. I really liked that as it let me get to know each sister more intimately. It was easy to keep track of whose viewpoint we were getting as the chapter is titled with the name of the sister. We get to really understand how a situation can be seen and understood in many different ways. How our past experiences play a role in our reaction to the situation.

I had a strong reaction to one scene with Mae’s children. The goldfish scene caused me to fume in frustration. Such little brats.

The Chicken Sisters read at an easy pace. There is very mild cursing and no detailed scenes (a heavy petting/kissing scene). I would recommend it to any reader who enjoys fiction, contemporary women fiction, and romance. Although the romance was a very small part of the book.
