Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE SULLIVAN SISTERS by Kathryn Ormsbee
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE SULLIVAN SISTERS by Kathryn Ormsbee. I’m a sucker for a good story about sisters and this one caught my attention since it’s about three sisters who used to be close but have drifted apart. Then when I saw the bit in the blurb about a sinister family mystery and a possible murder, I was 100% sold!
THE SULLIVAN SISTERS by Kathryn Ormsbee
Publication Date: May 26, 2020
Time changes things.
That painful fact of life couldn’t be truer for the Sullivan sisters. Once, they used to be close, sharing secrets inside homemade blanket castles. Now, life in the Sullivan house means closed doors and secrets left untold.
Fourteen-year-old Murphy, an aspiring magician, is shocked by the death of Siegfried, her pet turtle. Seventeen-year-old Claire is bound for better things than her Oregonian hometown—until she receives a crushing rejection from her dream college. And eighteen-year-old Eileen is nursing a growing addiction in the wake of life-altering news.
Then, days before Christmas, a letter arrives, informing the sisters of a dead uncle and an inheritance they knew nothing about. The news forces them to band together in the face of a sinister family mystery…and, possibly, murder.

Doesn’t it sound great? I was very excited when I came across it.
I usually enjoy books about sisters (being one of three sisters myself). It sounds like each sister is handling a lot and the mystery aspect is a bonus.

Right? Same here!
Ooh, is this YA? There was a YA book a while back called Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters that is ALSO about an inheritance and for a minute I thought this was that.
Yes, this one is YA.
