Fiona O'Brien has done a great job with this book. You think you know what's happened and what's going to happen, but you'll be wrong at almost every turn.

Charlie Fitzgibbon has pulled a disappearing act and left his family in the lurch. The once highly successful entrepreneur has somehow managed to goof up so badly, the new kitchen has to be repossessed and he forges his wife Shelley's signature and sells the house out from underneath her.

Shelley has no one and nowhere else to turn, so she turns to her mother-in-law Vera who has been estranged from Charlie for decades. So she moves herself and her three children into Vera's small three bedroom house.

Besides the surprise twists, the best part of the book was chapters from the point of views from all of the characters. You had direct insight into what each character was going through. This is my first Fiona O'Brien book, but it definitely won't be my last!
