'Rich people behaving badly' Booklist

The battle lines are drawn . . .

Following the scandalous revelations about his love life, disgraced media mogul Harry Rose is searching for redemption. His daughters - bright, winsome Eliza and dark, difficult Maria - have taken over his beloved company and are making some major changes.

Guided by Harry, Eliza navigates life as Rose Corp's new queen. But Maria is standing in her way. And then there's the distraction of Eliza's childhood playmate, the twinkly-eyed Rob Studley, and the unresolved death of her mother . . .

After a stellar start, things take a turn for the worse and ultimately Eliza will have to make a choice: career, or love?

Loosely based on the turbulent reigns of Tudor queens Mary and Elizabeth, this is a scandalous tale of love, power and betrayal . . .

Praise For…

Racy pacy!—Nicky Pellegrino, bestselling author of <i>A Dream of Italy</i>

A fun and entertaining read . . . non-stop Tudor intrigue!—An Historian About Town

Even if you're not an aficionado of Tudor history, there is lots to love in this racy romp about the lives of the rich and fabulous. The historical factor is fun though, and adds another layer to an addictively readable novel ... if you're a fan of Jilly Cooper or something of a history buff, then you're really not going to want to miss out—New Zealand Woman’s Weekly

The skill of Hayfield in creating a believable modern storyline that maintains the essence of the historical characters and events makes this book more than simply a light-hearted version of the television show Succession . . . in a turbulent summer, Sister to Sister is the perfect escape—The Listener

The ingenious way Hayfield re-casts and contemporises the Tudor court gives her a chance to have some fun but there remain perceptive observations of modern life, from the influence of the religious right to the relationship problems caused by family dysfunction . . . an amusing, smart and oddly thought-provoking read with glamour and great heart—Kete: New Books from Aotearoa

A must-read for history buffs—Woman’s Day

A fun read but also packed quite an emotional punch for me (I'm not too proud to admit I cried my eyes out!)—
