My Review of “The Last Chance Matinee” by Mariah Stewart

No comments

I would like to thank NetGalley and Gallery Books for the ARC of “The Last Chance Matinee” by Mariah Stewart in exchange for my honest review. The genre of this book is Women’s fiction.
I find that the author describes a dysfunctional family, with characters that are flawed.
After Fritz Hudson’s death, his family is called by his laywer/friend to discuss the terms of the will. What is intriguing, is that we find out that Fritz Hudson had two families, on other sides of the country. With one wife, he has two daughters, and with the other he has one daughter. This revelation is a shock and surprise to his daughters. The sisters find out that there is a stipulation in their father’s will that challenges them to fix and reconstruct a building used for theater that is part of his estate. In addition the sisters have to live in the family home, where there is another surprise waiting, their Aunt Barney, who they never knew existed.
If the three sisters don’t complete this together, or if one leaves than the inheritance is lost.
Each of the sisters have their own issues and complicated lives.
The three Hudson sisters decide that they will try to fix this theater.
I find that the author writes about betrayal, lies, secrets,loyalty, friends, family and hope. There is an element of surprise and mystery as well. This book doesn’t have a conclusion, and the author is supposed to be writing other books in this series. I look forward to reading more in this series.
