's review

it was ok

This book over-describes everything. The author constantly reminds you of events that happened earlier in the book. Maybe she assumes you aren't bright enough to remember them on your own? It's repetitive and patronizing and annoying. This is the type of book that you could read while drinking a couple cocktails because you're not going to miss anything anyway!

She describes four (Four!) different characters as having "beautiful, pale skin who obviously stayed out of the sun as much as possible throughout their lives." This author is obsessed with skin care and sun damage. All of her characters whether they're from New York or New Orleans or Florida seem to be crazy over vintage clothing, vintage bags, vintage couches. Seriously enough already. Show some character diversity.

There was some secret family drama that we learned about early on, and it was drawn out as a mystery for readers to wonder about. I didn't even care what had happened to their family by the middle of the book. Why do people like this kind of writing?
