Interesting concept: a mother videos tasks for her three estranged daughters to carry out once she has died. But I found the cackling old mother and her jolly mates truly irritating, the sort of embarrassing old biddies who would be hilariously flashing their knickers at a wedding dance And if she bothered to go to all this trouble, why on earth didn't she try to manipulate her daughters more before her death? And The three middle-aged daughters were weirdly juvenile, Dee the main POV keeping her relationship with the facilitator, Daniel, a secret. Rose being preciously secretive about her cancer. It wasn't the keeping-it-to-themselves that was annoying but their angsting about it. And the various tasks: going for a walk, using a health spa, were terribly mundane. Read for a book group, and while it was readable, a bit shallow and chick-lit for snobby me. ( )

Meet the daughters of Iris Parker. Dee: sensitive and big-hearted; Rose: uptight and controlled; and Fleur: the reckless free spirit. At the reading of their mother's will, the three estranged women are aghast to discover that their inheritance comes with very tricky strings attached: if they are to inherit her wealth, they must spend a series of weekends together over the course of a year and carry out their mother's 'bucket list'. But one year doesn't seem like nearly enough time for them to move past the decades-old layers of squabbles and misunderstandings.… (more)
