Mia Barron takes a playful approach in narrating this humorous family saga. The four 40-something Plumb siblings are waiting to finally come into the inheritance their father set aside for them. The black sheep, Leo, however, places their collective windfall in jeopardy. Barron's quick pace makes the bickering between the siblings believable and amplifies the tension of a family in conflict. She maximizes the contrasts between the main characters, two female and two male, drawing out the irony of bickering adult siblings. For those in search of drama bordering on melodrama, this is a story with many enjoyable moments. Set against the background of contemporary New York, the story is considerably enhanced by its narration. M.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2016]
