Summary

Four sisters. Decades of secrets. One week they'll never forget...

For the first time in years, the beautiful Robicheaux sisters are returning to their childhood home. Decades after they first met, their parents are getting married again—to each other, in a week's time!

Indy is used to high-stress situations in her job as a midwife—but she knows that keeping the peace in her family of big personalities is a different matter entirely...

Eden is on the brink of political success and a surprise family wedding is the last thing she needs. Especially when a long-buried secret is threatening to destroy everything.

Savannah might look like she has it all, but she's spent her whole married life hiding the truth. It's a fragile façade that's unlikely to withstand a week spent with her sisters.

Rory lives with her gorgeous girlfriend and tends to avoid family gatherings. Particularly now, as her new book might just reveal more than her sisters or parents would like...

A big wedding party is sure to throw up a few surprises—but one thing's for sure, it's going to be a week that the Robicheaux family will never forget...

With her inimitable warmth and wisdom, Cathy Kelly shows us that in the messy reality of marriage, family and romance, sometimes it's the women in our lives who hold us together.

Love this narrator

Another good story by Cathy Kelly - love the way the book is read - slightly irritated by the use of ‘bringing’ when it should be ‘taking’ but believe this to be a colloquial trait.
Looking forward to ‘reading’ another one!

The Wedding Party

It took me a few chapters to get into the story but it became more interesting the more I read.

very slow start. Not her best.

I usually love Cathy's attention to detail and how she explores the characters but the characterisation went on and on and on and on.

Only very mildly entertaining

Firstly the story - this should definitely have been edited down. There are only so many times one can hear the same thing over and over again. It doesn’t make it new information just because a different character tells you of Stu’s drinking, the different necklaces they all wore, how popular the hotels was etc etc
I found the description of domestic abuse to be quite upsetting.

Couldn’t understand why the narrator felt the need to do such a weird voice for each male character. Almost as if they were voicing Father Christmas. I expected them to break into HoHoHo at any minute. It sounded so false, it quite put me off altogether

Not her best work

I found it a bit difficult to follow and predictable in places. the reader was good
