It's all about two sisters - the safe older one (Hannah) who starts the book very pleased with herself having married someone with lots of money and apparently reformed a serial philanderer into the bargain, and the wild one (Juliet) who has recently lost the love of her life on a South American holiday and is going off the rails doing sex, drink and drugs while still holding down a job at a marketing agency full of other unlikeable people (who are at least quite like several marketing types of my acquaintance). There is a third sister, but she's hardly in it at all and fulfils no dramatic purpose whatsoever. Anyway, I didn't really like (not vital to enjoy a book) or indeed relate (rather more important) to either of these women. Juliet finds another bloke (the very underwritten Guy, who seems to have no personality traits at all), only to dump him in a fit of emotional self-loathing and..oh well, you'll have to find out for yourself. Both characters' story arcs are predictable though, not least the subplot about the identity of Hannah's friend's baby's father, which was blindingly obvious to the reader about 150 pages before stupid old Hannah cottoned on.
Another thought - although well written as ever, this is not the first Candlish book I have read where the women are all, strong, resilient, intelligent etc and the men are all either wet, stupid, reactive, bad, figures of fun or some or all of the above.
It's better than 'Since I don't have you' (the Santorini one) but can't honestly say I'd recommend it.
Much as I enjoyed reading it I can't give it five stars as I found it somewhat unstructured - the terrible generic title and the cover piccie suggests it will be about sisterly relationships but that really isn't the case. We know that Hannah and Juliet have been very close in the past but are estranged throughout most of this book and apart from a brief glimpse of a family Christmas, we have little idea how Laura interacts with the other two. Thought I enjoyed seeing glimpses of the two sisters' lives (particularly Juliet - the trajectory of Hannah's story is all too predictable) I didn't feel the book was really about anything - is it about sisterly love, is it about the fact that all men are unreliable and relationships unpredictable? I wasn't really sure where each story could go and it seems the author wasn't either - the ending is quite a disappointment as it just stops abruptly without any real closure. I also felt that she should have extended the sisterly theme by giving us an insight into Laura's life and how she views her siblings - otherwise I can't really see the point of her as a character. I agree with reviewers who said that they felt they had missed a previous book and I also felt there should have been an epilogue to follow. Not a bad read in all but it should have been better.
