casual thing people do out of curiosity It is a story that represents current times, and I found it very enjoyable.The Sweeney Sisters, a lighthearted humorous story of sisterhood, is about Maggie, Liza and Tricia, a close knit threesome, redheaded sisters who although are very different, have learned to navigate their relationships and enjoy each other as adults They return to their family home in Southport, Connecticut to settle matters after their beloved, famous father, Bill Sweeney passes away Their father s lawyer reveals to them some surprising news he has another they don t know about, and he has written a possibly revealing memoir.Meanwhile, in Washington DC, genetic testing led journalist and only child, Serena Tucker, to discover the identity of her biological father, and it was not a simple matter Her mother s secret affair years ago with the Connecticut next door neighbor, literary genius and college professor, Bill Sweeney, led to the birth of a baby girl Growing up on the same street as the Sweeney sisters, seeing their bond and now realizing she is one of them is important information in understanding who she really is, and Serena chooses to make the effort to connect with her sisters and learnabout what kind of man her father had been.Maggie, Liza and Tricia come together at their family home to mourn the father they thought they knew, but with the news of Serena and the discovery of the memoir, they are forced to tackle the truth of their past and appreciate the true meaning of family Bringing together three young women and their new older sibling doesn t come without messiness and ups and downs Emotions, old boyfriends and memories amidst this heartfelt reunion of sisters creates author Lian Dolan s wonderful story of family.In The Sweeney Sisters, the family home is located in Southport, CT and I couldn t help but love all the accurate local references, from Garelick Herbs to Fortuna s to the Pequot Library The loss of a literary legend, a secret sibling and a hidden memoir contribute to this meaningful story of family and sisterhood I enjoyed the lighthearted humor and recommend this book for a day at the beach or a day in

This book was a fine distraction for a few hours and had some fun moments but mainly it just sort of dragged along without any real climax and oozed too many first world problems for my liking Between the 3 then 4 sisters, the only one that I had any appreciation for was Tricia She was the one with the most relatable backstory The other 3 sisters all grated at my nerves, which probably made me less invested in their outcomes overall The author had a tendency to be very materialistic in her This book was a fine distraction for a few hours and had some fun moments but mainly it just sort of dragged along without any real climax and oozed too many first world problems for my liking Between the 3 then 4 sisters, the only one that I had any appreciation for was Tricia She was the one with the most relatable backstory The other 3 sisters all grated at my nerves, which probably made me less invested in their outcomes overall The author had a tendency to be very materialistic in her description of people instead of delving beneath the surfaces to makeof an emotional connection between the reader and the characters I knew wayabout what their fashion sense was than their true feeling about what they were experiencing It also just seemed like, at the end of the day, the fact their father died only spurred on questions relating to the finances of the characters and didn t really carry the weight of influencing their other,mindful choices in life Overall, the book was just fine For being a book of unlikable characters, it at least made me want to find out how everything resolves in the end but even when the ending came around I was just sort of like, oh that makes sense I realized that how I felt at the beginning about each of these characters ended up being how I felt at the end and that wasn t necessarily a great thing when I didn t enjoy their personalities to begin with.If you are looking for a quick and relatively unique story, I would suggest MAYBE picking this one up If you have any issues with having first world problems brought up at almost every page turn, maybe let this one stay on the shelf I received a complimentary copy of this book I
