Synopsis from Goodreads: That painful fact of life couldn’t be truer for the Sullivan sisters. Once, they used to be close, sharing secrets inside homemade blanket castles. Now, life in the Sullivan house means closed doors and secrets left untold.

Fourteen-year-old Murphy, an aspiring magician, is shocked by the death of Siegfried, her pet turtle. Seventeen-year-old Claire is bound for better things than her Oregonian hometown—until she receives a crushing rejection from her dream college. And eighteen-year-old Eileen is nursing a growing addiction in the wake of life-altering news.

Then, days before Christmas, a letter arrives, informing the sisters of a dead uncle and an inheritance they knew nothing about. The news forces them to band together in the face of a sinister family mystery…and, possibly, murder.

My Review: I was actually pretty disappointed in this one. I was hoping for a YA mystery or a thriller and what I got was a family saga that focused on the them of sisterhood. I liked the bond between the sisters and the way they grew. I honestly just couldn't get into this one though. The sisters voices muddled together and the pacing seemed to drag a bit in parts. overall this was one was okay but I just enjoy it.
