Callahan's characters are interesting, if a bit cliched, with the exception of Maisy. The male characters get a pass on making tough decisions, ensuring the female characters suffer nobly while seeking revenge on each other. Climactic resolutions of years-old bitterness happen too quickly and too neatly. This otherwise well-written novel suffers under the weight of these flaws.
Riley, Adalee and Maisy are three sisters who don't speak to each other. When their small family bookstore faces a monetary crisis, their headstrong matriarch, Kitsy, manages to pull them together in an attempt to save the store. They also have only a few days to work out their jealous and turbid history. (NAL ACCENT, Jun., 384 pp., $15.00)
