“The Sisters” by Kate Forster – A read for the weekend

“The Sisters” by Kate Forster

Rating:  ****

Genre: Fiction: Chick Lit

Read:  February 2019

The young and gifted de Santoval triplets have been brought up in a world of fashion, money and privilege. Over the years the three have drifted apart, with Carlotta immersing herself in the horsey set, Grace in the art and auction house business, and Violetta in the party girl, reality TV life style.  When their father Leon, does the bunk with his long term mistress, and their mother Birdie is found unconscious and in a coma, the three sisters are reunited. Unaccustomed to adversity, the sisters must work together to rebuild their family business, and deal with family issues, support their ill mother, and maybe find love on the way.

The characters are a little annoying in parts, somewhat believable in others, with a few relatable traits in each.

With loads of sex, fashion, art and fun, “The Sisters” by Kate Forster is a wonderfully light read, suitable for days by the pool, weekend reading, and an escape from daily routine.  Good fun.
