About the book
Sisters Vera and Nadezhda must put aside feuding to save their engineer father from gold-digger Valentina. With her proclivity for satin underwear and boil-in-the-bag cuisine, she will stop at nothing in her pursuit of wealth. But the sisters’ campaign to oust Valentina unearths secrets and sends them back to roots they’d much rather forget.
Reviewed by Yateley Library Reading Group:
All enjoyed this book. We felt it was a good contemporary subject and all sides were sympathised with. It made us laugh and we liked the interwoven hidden story of the characters earlier lives. Some thought it was farcical and not believable – this was the minority.
