This book kept me guessing until the end and the twist did manage to surprise me. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book.

Told from multiple POVs, I was immediately pulled into the lives of the dysfunctional Parker family with all their secrets, betrayal, greed, and family drama. I needed a book which would take me away from the pain of it all. The two ended up kissing, and the rest of the vacation they kept stealing moments together where they could be alone.
