Book Review: The Nest

I have been meaning to post this review and somehow it got stuck in drafts until just now. To be perfectly honest this review was from last Summer!  YIKES!  To make matters worse, I didn’t read the book or attend the book club so after the gathering, I  asked Kari, a member of our group and a good friend, to give me her synopsis and thoughts for us both. As the saying goes.. Better late than never..

The Nest is a light, warm and fun read…perfect for the summer (or in this case, spring break!)  The Story involves a very dysfunctional family, whose inheritance, which they refer to as “the Nest, is ruined by one single tragic event.  While most of the characters are completely self-absorbed and shallow, the author weaves the story back to where most of the siblings heal their wounded relationships with each other and move on to find that money can’t buy you happiness. In turn, the reader comes to appreciate (and like) most of theses characters and appreciate the lessons they have learned. It’s a page turner with a relate-able story line of how financial struggles can absorb and complicate our lives.

Have you read it?  What do you think?  Do you agree with Kari’s review?
