Curtis Sittenfeld hits it out of the park with this deliciously fun, impeccably executed modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice! Effortlessly clever and oh so funny, it hits the perfect tone for a modernized classic, managing to poke fun at the more antiquated bits while keeping things fresh and staying true to the storyline.
Book Description: Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle, beautiful thirty-three-year-old triplets, seem to attract attention everywhere they go. Together, laughter, drama, and mayhem seem to follow them. But apart, each is dealing with her own share of ups and downs. Lyn has organized her life into one big checklist, Cat has just learned a startling secret about her marriage, and Gemma, who bolts every time a relationship hits the six-month mark, holds out hope for lasting love. In this wise, witty, and hilarious novel, we follow the Kettle sisters through their tumultuous thirty-third year as they deal with sibling rivalry and secrets, revelations and relationships, unfaithful husbands and unthinkable decisions, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a trio.
Moriarty has a brilliant gift for creating personable, flawed, hilariously witty characters that immediately leap off the page and demand attention, and the Kettle triplets are no exception. And when the book begins with an outsider’s glimpse of the mayhem that accompanies their 33rd birthday dinner, you literally go into the story wondering – what could possibly lead to a fondue fork in a pregnant triplet’s stomach?
