Genre: Mystery / Drama / Suspense
My Review:

The story starts with the typical life of Evelyn Emerson who is a successful businesswoman. It soon follows into her married life and then involves all of her sisters. Due to the “tremendous” stress in their lives, they all plan to take a vacation, which eventually leads to even more stress. The entire story then goes on about how they handle this “additional stress”.

The story is pompous right from the word “go”. The family is too proud of its heritage and makes no effort to hide it at every page of the book. The women are very proud of themselves too, to a point of being arrogant. The story in itself is mildly amusing. A sense of mystery is maintained throughout the book. That manages to engage the reader throughout the book allowing them to come till the very end.
