Dee; sensitive and big-hearted; Rose uptight and controlled and Fleur the reckless free spirit.At the reading of their mother’s will, the three estranged women are aghast to discover that their inheritance comes with very tricky strings attached. If they are to inherit her wealth, they must spend a series of weekends together over the course of a year and carry out their mother’s ‘bucket list’. But one year doesn’t seem like nearly enough time for them to move past the decades-old layers of squabbles and misunderstandings. Can they grow up for once and see that Iris’s bucket list was about so much more than money.

    Kat's Review: I was looking forward to reading this as it was slightly different from what I usually read. Three sisters all of whom are different are brought together at the will reading for their Mum. Dee, Rose and Fleur haven't spoken for many years and as they sit in the solicitors office they think that they can go another few years without speaking to each other once the will is read. However, their Mum has other ideas and has made it a condition of the will that before they are eligible for their inheritance they must complete a series of tasks over the coming year.
