In this novel, Charley Kelley is a young chambermaid at the Precipice Hotel, who valiantly struggles to keep her and her grandmother’s heads above the rising waters of debt. The recent death of Mr. Bishop, the hotel’s owner, sends a tall wave of uncertainty heading for them, as the remaining heirs gather at the Precipice for the lawyer’s reading of his will. While the Bishop family is concerned about who gets what . . . poor Charley is desperate and just hoping to keep her job. There’s a volatile storm brewing in the distance and it is headed straight for the hotel in more ways than one.
There is a point in the middle of the book where I felt it was a bit slow and predictable, but then a few details come along to refresh the story and move it along again. This novel is twisty, sprinkled in humor, and lands a solid ending . . . an overall good read.

I’d like to thank NetGalley for an advanced copy of One Big Happy Family for my unbiased evaluation.  4 stars
