I would call this smart chick lit it s very clever in that each cousin narrates a section giving meaning to the title I also loved the portrayal of the cousin relationship which I feel is a very special relationship There s some light romance and suspense and it s a bit of a coming of age novel for these women in their twenties I liked how it went back and forth A very satisfying beach read

This book was crap There will be spoilers because I disliked the story so much that I don t care to preserve itThe story is about three cousins Lizzie the soccer player Isobel the actress and Elyse the fat one Yes that is the big trait that they give Elyse And she s not fat she s pudgy and likes to bake Way to go on personality there These three cousins have been friends for life and when all three of their lives are at a crisis at the same time they go to Memphis to restore a house and fix everythingI felt like the author didn t really like her characters She made little attempt to have them be likeable and she didn t go too deep into their emotions She divided the story into three parts so that you could focus on each girl In Lizzie s section she is struggling with a soccer injury that could and does end her career She s extremely focused on making the olympic soccer team When in a later section you find out she doesn t make it that s all you know You don t know if she was upset or if she had accepted her fate by then or what And Isobel in order to try and spruce up her career is having a reality crew film the three of them fixing up the house The crew in order to spice up ratings keeps throwing weird situations at them and surprising them with weird guests and everything And someone will get madfor a paragraph And then it s just not talked about It s not resolved It s justthere Isobel throws them out finally and nobody really says anything Don t worry She got a long great with the cameraman and he comes back with a great show idea that will help Isobel revive her career Problem solved No emotionAnd poor old Elyse is hiding out because the man she loves is marrying her sister Turns out they were childhood friends and she was just waiting until one day he and her sister come into the living room and announce they re getting married WHAT When she finally has the big confrontation with the guy he has the perfectly logical explanation that he loves Elyse like a friend but he LOVES her sister Okay fine I can roll with that But where s the big tantrum of WHY DIDN T YOU TELL ME YOU WERE DATING MY SISTER WHY DIDN T SHE TELL ME I feel like these are logical uestions If my sister showed up with her fiancee that none of us knew about I wouldn t cut down my prize roses for the centerpieces which the mom does I would have a serious talk about open communicationIdiots Also while fixing up the house the sisters discover some secrets Such asincest Yes a niece married her uncle This is literally how the book puts it and the three sat around the phone while aunt Anne related the story as she knew it And that s all the reader gets to know Seriously Why bring it up if you weren t going to talk about itI don t know if the author walked around so long with the story in her head that she forgot she hadn t actually transcribed it to paper or if she would just try to throw in a uirk once in a while but have no idea where to go with itDon t read this book
