Summary
Old alliances and old rivalries quickly surface when the four Barrett sisters, in order to inherit and sell the valuable property, must spend the entire summer with each other at the beloved lake of their childhood summers. But the sisters get far more than they bargained for: One will find love, and all four will gain new understanding of their late, self-absorbed grandmother, and they'll find two mummified dead bodies walled up in the root cellar, one in a WWI doughboy's uniform. Of course, each sister has her own way of dealing with the discovery, from calling the police to getting rid of the bodies so the sale can proceed. As a compromise, Andromeda Strain meets "I Love Lucy" when the sisters carefully transfer the bodies into decorated heavy-mill Christmas tree bags (the closest they could get to body bags) then deposit them on a remote park bench and call the cops with an anonymous tip. Things take a turn for the bizarre when the police arrive to find the corpses stuffed in dancing Santa bags tied with big red bows
Summary
Spending a summer together in the hopes of inheriting their grandmother's lake estate, four sisters share old rivalries and new understandings while struggling with respective challenges in the areas of finance, marriage, and boundaries
