How to Survive Your Sisters by Ellie Campbell is about four sisters. One of the sisters is getting married and wants the 'perfect wedding' in this fun chick-lit read.
I will say that the characters seemed to be in a world of their own. Each is well portrayed and so colorful with each sister having their own story. The author did a good job at blending the various stories together with suspense and even the realism of what all was going on. Indeed these sisters did interact just like sisters. We find the MacLeod's sisters. The oldest sister Avril and she is a Hollywood Agent. Milly is married and a mother of three. Natalie is the 'bride to be'. And lastly there is the baby sister Hazel. Some of the sisters are more likable than others. I will let you decide which ones you like and which ones you don’t. Now that they are coming together due to the wedding they will be closer than they have been in years. Will there be family squabbles and hidden secrets that could probably 'break the bonds of this sisterhood' even further than it already is?
Ellie Campbell did a wonderful job at keeping the story around the sisters and the wedding. To get the answers to the above questions you will have to pick up this wonderful story. Readers are in for many twists and turns as this author has given us a story that we will want to finish.
How To Survive Your Sisters is written in third person making it easy to follow. Readers will be kept engrossed and turning the pages until the end.
I also liked how this novel seemed very. Oh, I almost forgot be ready for some humor that will have you laughing out loud. If you enjoy a good read about a family who loves each other no matter the many 'trials and tribulations'... you have come to the right book. I recommend How to Survive Your Sisters.
A wonderfully warm and witty debut novel about family secrets and sibling rivalry.
The four MacLeod sisters are no strangers to sisterly rivalry and with one of them about to be married, there are bound to be fireworks. Perfectionist Natalie wants the 'wedding of the year'. Harassed mother, Milly, just wishes her bridesmaid's dress wasn't the size of a tent. Career-obsessed Avril secretly moons over a married man and world traveler, Hazel, the youngest, yearns to be taken seriously. Forced together for the first time in years, and with an unexpected guest stirring up old resentments, squabbles are inevitable. But when tragedy strikes things really fly apart - as some shocking skeletons emerge rattling from the crowded MacLeod closet...
