Read full description of the books:
This book was okay....I found the 3 sisters to be completely contradictory from chapter to chapter. In one chapter, a sister is depressed to the point of not getting out of bed for days, then suddenly, to advance the story, she is up and out and about and socializing and working. Another sister is completely levelheaded, the voice of reason of the family, and within one day of meeting her new boss's husband, she is sleeping with him and madly in love with him. The last sister changed from chapter to chapter, from a bratty, spoiled bitch who you would love to smack, to a sad, lonely misunderstood waif who you wanted to hug. Then suddenly, back to bitchy!
The plots were pretty far fetched. In one summer we are to believe that five adults, three of whom have had the absolute tragedy of a lifetime happen to them, all go from desperate, lonely people, struggling just to hang on, to happily ever after, one big happy family, a match made in heaven for each one of them. Dreams coming true! Riding into the sunset! All in one tiny summer!
Yeah, it was pretty lame, now that I think about it. I thought I was getting into a good novel but instead felt like I was reading a harlequin romance.
