As the tour wends its way through the picturesque landscape, Harriet must uncover her sister’s whereabouts and confront long-held family secrets involving Lara’s arrival twenty-five years ago . . . not to mention keeping track of more baggage–real and emotional–than she ever expected.“With every book, Monica McInerney becomes more skilled at juggling plot complexities and giving depth to her characters. . . .

Quite good! I will definitely look for more by McInerney. Excellent story about a family and the consequences of big secrets. I loved the traveling and the made-up British TV show. Sounds like a winner.
