I am a sucker for dysfunctional family stories and so I grabbed the galley of this the moment it arrived.
The majority of this book was really fun. The characters were messes of people (which I love) and the interactions were awkward (perfect)! But then there was a huge twist, which I saw coming from miles away. In fact, I wish that the book had gone with the red herring plot line rather than the twist. That would have been more surprising and made for a better story, in my opinion. That said, Hornak did manage to surprise me with a plot point after the twist so at least all was not lost.
This is a great, light holiday read. Perfect for someone who just needs to escape from hanging out with the family.
