The story about the Kettle triplets over the course of their thirty-third year. Cat, Gemma and Lyn Kettle are a strange sight when they are together and their lives take turns over the next year that no one could foresee. The two however cross paths once again when Sophie fortuitously inherits aunt Connie’s house on Scribbly Gum Island—a place infamously known for the Munro Baby mystery that remains unsolved.I very much enjoyed this story as the character development was outstanding. I felt I truly knew each sister and how they would behave at every juncture. The transitions to the past were timely as they aptly provided context for the three women's present characterizations. The twists in their stories, especially Gemma's, were stunning, catching me off guard. The men in their lives created even more texture to the story as they represented choices that deeply impacted their individual and collective destinies. Lastly, there were passages provided intermittently throughout the book that were observations by strangers. That was a unique device that gave additional insights about the family interactions and it really worked for me.

These behaviors - though squirm inducing - add interest to the story. On the other hand, 5-year-old Holly is a hoot when she sprinkles her conversation with "air quotes" on random words. A lot of people talk about humor in Liane Moriarty's books but everything irritated me, things that were supposed to be funny, they didn't feel funny to me rather it all felt too dreary and I kept rolling my eyes throughout. There was a lot of drama but it was all predictable and just didn't work for me. I did like the sisters' bonding. A professional hypnotherapist, Ellen O’Farrell works from the beachfront home she inherited from her grandparents.Whilst all three grew up together, its intriguing to see how different each of their personalities shine. From various relationships to the sibling who has kids, wants kids, and lastly not fussed.
