Review of The Fine Art of Insincerity by Angela Hunt

The Fine Art of Insincerity
By Angela Hunt
The Fine Art of Insincerity: A Novel

Three southern sisters with nine marriages among them – and more looming on the horizon – travel to St. Simons Island to empty their late grandmother’s house. Ginger, the eldest, wonders if she’s the only one who hasn’t inherited what their family calls “the Grandma Gene” – the tendency to enjoy the casualness of courtship more than the intimacy of marriage. Could it be that her sisters are fated to serially marry, just like their seven-times-wed grandmother, Lillian Irene Harper Winslow Goldstein Carey James Bobrinski Gordon George?
Marital frustrations collide with poignant memories when the sisters gather to close up Grandma’s treasured beach house for the last time. One sister faces her husband’s infidelity, one plots the end of her life in pursuit of love, and one toys with the idea of leaving her loving but dull husband as the task at hand reminds them of their grandmother’s love and life lessons. This “girls only” weekend forces them to finally unpack their family baggage, examine their relationship DNA, and discover the true legacy their much-marrying grandmother left behind.

I absolutely adore Angela Hunt and her books so I couldn’t wait to read this one. When I was emailed the opportunity to participate in this blog tour from Glass Road Productions I jumped on it! I was getting worried because I thought I would get the book the first of May but it finally showed up around May 20th. I couldn’t wait to dive right in. Of course, Ms. Hunt did not disappoint me.

What a truly moving story about relationships with not only our siblings but with everyone that has touched our life sometime. This is a great story about the loves we have in our lives and how sometimes we hurt those around us. This teaches us about forgiving ourselves and others. I hate to give anything away in a book so I will not say much more.

This is definitely a 5 star book for me. It is a great read that will be worth every minute. It will have you laughing, crying, and getting angry at the characters. You will love all of the characters she has in the story even those that are not in many scenes. She has a great way of writing that will draw you in and make you want to stay up all night until you have finished!
