    Good Beach Read

    Very fast read about a stepfamily who converge on a French island to spread their patriarch's ashes. As they gather, the author slowly unfolds the offbeat personalities of each: four grown sisters and their partners, their mother and her husband, the father's second wife and a young niece. These characters come from very different backgrounds and it feels like the author just throws them together to verbally spare, snipe and annoy each other. Each woman seems desperate as she juggles for attention, power and to have her own selfish desires met. At times this book plods along slowly, concentrating too much on the petty spats and silly arguments but then the book takes an unexpected turn as two sisters accidentally trip over their father's secret life. When he died, he left some loose ends which forces the daughters to do business with dangerous and deadly thieves. This part adds a nice detour away from the otherwise self-absorbed characters. The end of the book is silly and ridiculous. A follow-up epilogue tells how the sisters ultimately end up and provides a quick wrap-up to the book. It felt to me like the author had to meet her deadline, so she just slapped together this conclusion. Overall, I would NOT recommend this book.

    what is this?

    This book was such a waste of time - none of the characters (or the writing, for that matter) were appealing AT ALL. They all got on my nerves and confused me with their lightning-quick changes in attitude, personality, etc. I would NOT recommend this book to anyone.
