Saturday’s at Sweeney’s, the last book in the Sweeney Sisters series by Ashley Farley, is about the matriarch of the family being accused of ruining the family business.
The book starts off with Sam Sweeney being called and told their family business is on fire. She is shocked as the rest of the family but hurt when the police believe her mother was responsible for the incident.
Sam is basically in charge of running the family business and hopes to rebuild with her son Jamie, who doesn’t want to leave his hometown. Jackie doesn’t really want to deal with the problems surrounding the business nor the issues her son, Sean is having, but is quick to give advice to her sisters. Faith, the youngest, volunteers to take care of their mother until they make a final decision about placement, but she is also keeping a secret from her sisters that may be dangerous.
This is my first introduction to Ashley Farley’s writing but will not be my last. She is an author I will continue to follow. This book shows the realistic interaction within a family, which made me connect with the characters. The mystery aspect is just a plus. The twists and reveal were unsuspected but worth the wait. The transitions Lovie goes through in the book made me sympathetic to her family’s issues of placing her in facility.
I read this book with determination to find out who committed this crime because to blame it on an elderly woman with dementia was bugging me. In the process, I met some interesting characters with everyday problems. I recommend this book to readers who love mysteries.
