The Sisters by Kate Forster is riot of wealth, sex, fashion, art, horses and bad behavior. Triplets Violetta, Carlotta and Grace have dysfunctional relationships with each other and with their ruthless father, Leon, head of the Pajaro fashion house. When their mother lies in a coma after an accident and their father disappears, the sisters are forced to confront their mutual and individual histories. Secrets creep into the open creating turmoil and angst. The self-centered triplets become far more likeable as they acknowledge their issues and try to change. Their mother, Birdie, sits at the center of it all, a loveable, kind matriarch. In this light but gripping tale, Kate proves a dab hand at writing conflict, romance and showing character growth. If you are looking for a rollicking read with heart, this is the one.
