From the author of HOW TO SAY GOODBYE IN ROBOT, the story of a fractured family and three sisters' secrets.

The Sullivan sisters have a big problem. On Christmas Day their rich and imperious grandmother gathers the family and announces that she will soon die . . .and has cut the entire family out of her will. Since she is the source of almost all their income, this means they will soon be penniless.

Someone in the family has offended her deeply. If that person comes forward with a confession of her (or his) crime, submitted in writing to her lawyer by New Year's Day, she will reinstate the family in her will. Or at least consider it.

And so the confessions begin....

Some involve love.
Some involve hate.
Some involve life.
Some involve death.

No secret is too big or too small for the Sullivans, or for author Natalie Standiford, in this smart and funny novel about the confessions that can bring families together...or tear them apart.

This book was so filled with promises at the start, with an interesting plot and delightful characters. But then it started dragging by the time Standiford got to the second part of the story. Luckily, the third part zipped uphill and the ending, even though I more or less predicted it already, was really awesome. Fantastic book!

I liked most of this book. I loved the ideo of Almighty taking away the Sullvans' heritage. I think Norrie and Jane were the only ones who had an actual confession to make. Sassy's I find was really, really stupid. It's like the author had no clue what to make her do. all i saw was how shallow Sassy is. The ending was funny, really. What I thought was, poor girls. I wonder what St. John and Sully wrote, did they even write anything? The ending was funny, but also a little exasperating. I mean, is there even a point? But I encourage you all to read this book, and the ending will make you laugh! You'll never guess it, unless you read ahead like I did.

This book was amazing! some surprising twists really altered my view on the three main characters. The 3 different points of view were refreshing and kept me interested! DEFINETLY WORTH THE READ :D

I really enkoyed this book. Each sister's confession is different, but they all have funny aspects.
It always took me a while to adjust to a different speaker.
like the other commenter said, extremely surprising ending. You will neverever guess it.
