It's a hot, dry summer day/night as Nina Riva and her three siblings prepare for their annual party. Told over the course of 24 hours, the reader learns the Riva family history and how being the offspring of a celebrity does not guarantee wealth or an easy life. As events come to a climax on the night of the party, all four siblings must come to terms with their choices and the path forward. Although slow to start, the reader is eventually drawn into the characters' lives. Reid's endings are never what you quite expect which keeps me reading her novels.
