From amazon.com:
The Sullivan sisters have a big problem. On Christmas Day their rich and imperious grandmother gathers the family and announces that she will soon die . . .and has cut the entire family out of her will. Since she is the source of almost all their income, this means they will soon be penniless.

Someone in the family has offended her deeply. If that person comes forward with a confession of her (or his) crime, submitted in writing to her lawyer by New Year's Day, she will reinstate the family in her will. Or at least consider it.

And so the confessions begin....
This is Natalie Standiford's second novel. I have never read her first, but it has received amazing reviews. After reading the summary of this novel, I couldn't wait to start reading it!

The Sullivan family is intense. All of the Sullivan's have some sort of "issue" and it makes the story. I came to love each and every family member of the family. You'll start this book and have many questions and by the end you will be left wanting more.

There are three stories from different points of view and each of them are great. I loved the first one, than found I loved the next one, and even the last one. All three are different, so you won't get bored. They intertwine too and will give you a different view on some things.

I found this book to be interesting and it definitely kept my attention. If you're looking for an easy read, but still want something that will make you think pick up this book!

Overall I fell in love with this story and the Sullivan family. I highly recommend this book to all.

Rating: 4 stars / 5 stars
