Dysfunctional families are always a great premise for a book.  This centers around Daisy and Winnie two seemingly opposite of the spectrum families and the fallout from an anniversary party.  What I enjoyed was that all was not as it seemed and both the upper and lower class families have issues and everything isn’t always how it looks from the outside.

While the cover looks happy, there are some serious issues at hand in the book.  I really liked Daisy and probably not so much anyone else, but I liked that there are many narrators in the book and I saw the events from many different perspectives.

If you like a thought provoking book, you should give this one a try.

About the book

In this captivating story from the bestselling author of Picking up the Pieces, Daisy has always envied the perfect family next door. But will a weekend of unexpected drama prove that the grass isn’t always greener?

Daisy Harrop has always felt like she exists in the background, and since her mother stopped getting out of bed, her life has come to a complete standstill. Daisy would give anything to leave the shabbiest house on the street and be more like the golden Kelleways next door, with their perfectly raked driveway and flourishing rose garden…

Winnie Kelleway is proud of the beautiful family she’s built. They’ve had their ups and downs—hasn’t everyone? But this weekend, celebrating her golden wedding anniversary is truly proof of their happiness, a joyful gathering for all the neighbours to see. But as the festivities get underway, are the cracks in the ‘perfect’ Kelleway life beginning to show? As one bombshell revelation leads to another and events start to spiral out of control, Daisy and Winnie are about to discover that things aren’t always what they seem.
