Summary (from Goodreads)From the author of HOW TO SAY GOODBYE IN ROBOT, the story of a fractured family and three sisters' secrets.

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....
***
My Summary: The Sullivan family is anything but normal, and they know it. Their grandmother, Almighty, is a rich socialite that demands respect from her grandchildren. But her granddaughters seem to have gone astray, and Christmas morning Almighty announces that unless one of her grandchildren - whom she claims offended her deeply - writes a written apology & confession and delivers it to her by New Years Day, she will cut the entire family out of the will and they will be left penniless.

Norrie, Jane, and Sassy know that the offender is definitely one of them - but which one is it? Because there are more than a few things the Sullivan sisters have to confess....

My Thoughts: This book was, in a word, adorable. I've been wanting to read it for ages and I'm so glad I finally got around to it! Norrie, Jane, and Sassy were great characters - although I have to admit, my favourite was definitely Norrie. It was a light, quick read, and I loved every minute of it.

Final Thoughts: I definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys light contemporary literature, romance, and a little humour. It would make a great beach read!
