Deborah Peltz, a soap opera writer in New York, has never gotten along with her sister Sharon, a wedding planner in Boca Raton. Just about anything can touch off an estrangement, and bickering comes so naturally to them that they don’t even remember what they’re arguing about.

But when their mother has a heart attack in Stuart, Florida, the sisters come together and promise to bury the hatchet for Mom’s sake – until they both fall for her cardiologist. When the handsome doctor is found dead in his waterfront home with both sisters squabbling over his body, they become the prime suspects and go from enemies to alibis.

Deborah hopes her experience plotting storylines for her soap opera will help them police find the real killer, but a second murder brings the siblings even closer to danger.

Now, joining forces in the Bahamas may be their one chance to stay alive. And in the process, they just might learn to love and accept (or at least tolerate) each other, not to mention find men of their own to love.

“If you ever wanted to kill your sister, this is the novel for you… Delightful.” – People

“Hilarious.” – Woman’s Own

One only hopes that Heller's humor is tongue-in-cheek when the supposedly worldly Deborah is forced to say things like ""the Big Apple had its share of Bad Apples."" Heller writes briskly and cheerfully, and readers looking for light fiction with a decidedly contemporary theme probably won't be d...

But for the thrice-divorced Sharon, a wedding planner, and her never-married younger sister, a TV soap opera writer having a midlife crisis, contempt would represent a step forward in their relationship.
