“Meet the daughters of Iris Parker. Dee; sensitive and big-hearted; Rose uptight and controlled and Fleur the reckless free spirit.
At the reading of their mother’s will, the three estranged women are aghast to discover that their inheritance comes with strings attached. If they are to inherit her wealth, they must spend a series of weekends together over the course of a year and carry out their mother’s ‘bucket list’.
But one year doesn’t seem like nearly enough time for them to move past the decades-old layers of squabbles and misunderstandings. Can they grow up for once and see that Iris’ bucket list was about so much more than money…”
I’m not sure how this ended up on my Kindle (potentially prosecco fueled late night purchase?!?) but I started reading it a few days ago and enjoyed it.
It’s based around 3 sisters – although they’re nothing like me and my 2 sisters so can’t draw any analogies there.
I found it really quite emotional – and sobbed a few times (but then I cry at anything – current fave being the Morrison’s pie advert, so other people might not weep as much!)
The chapters are told from the different sisters’ viewpoints – although fundamentally by Dee (official name Daisy). I liked Dee (although occasionally wanted to tell her to man up a bit!)
The story ends up much more complicated than it starts off – but I don’t want to give any of the plot twists away, as it would ruin it knowing some of the stuff up front! Occasionally it felt a bit repetitive – but overall I enjoyed it.
An easy summer read – exactly as it says on the cover!
Not sure where it will fit into my 2017 Reading Challenge (and it could easily have warranted a cat on the front cover which would have been one category sorted!!)
