#82 : The Fine Art of Insincerity - Angela Hunt


Synopsis & Book Info:
Three grown Southern sisters have ten marriages between them—and more loom on the horizon—when Ginger, the eldest, wonders if she’s the only one who hasn’t inherited what their family calls “the Grandma Gene”: the tendency to like the casualness of courtship better than the intimacy of marriage. Could it http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifbe that her two sisters are fated to serially marry, just like their seven-times wed grandmother, Mrs. Lillian Irene Harper Winslow Goldstein Carey James Bobrinski Gordon George? It takes a “girls only” weekend, closing up Grandma’s treasured beach house for the last time, for the sisters to really unpack their family baggage, examine their relationship DNA, and discover the true legacy their much-marrying grandmother left behind.

My Opinion:
This book was just okay for me, but it might be better for you.
It's a story about siblings, and it felt like a real story, but one I have heard before.
I didn't dislike it, or think it was phenomenal either, but there were good and bad points.
Bad: It took too long to get to a good plot with a hint something I had to have.
Good: Exceptional characters.
So my best advice would be to read it for yourselves.


3/5


Recommend? To women's lit fans, yes.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
