It's tough to turn off an audiobook that begins, "There's nothing wrong with this family that a funeral or two wouldn't fix." Cynthia Darlow delightfully narrates this story of four very different sisters who must spend a summer together in their grandmother's home in order to inherit it. Her vocalizations differentiate each sister and the secondary characters as well. In particular, Darlow makes the annoying Iris is even more so, and her depiction of sister Dahlia's love interest will have female listeners swooning. Darlow's range and flawless characterizations dramatically underscore the sisters' rivalries and personal struggles. Although a secondary plot involving two mummies is implausible, listeners will enjoy the humor and drama as middle-aged sisters reconnect with one another.
