Melody, Jack, Bea und Leo sind Geschwister. Sie sind in ihren Vierzigern, stehen mitten im Leben und sie haben immer gewusst, sie wurden eines Tages erben. Aber was, wenn die Erbschaft ausbleibt? Ein warmherziger, humorvoller und scharfsinniger Roman daruber, wie der Kampf ums Geld Lebensentwurfe und Familien durcheinanderbringen kann. Als Kinder haben sie einander geneckt, als Erwachsene verbindet die Geschwister Melody, Jack, Beatrice und Leo Plumb nur noch eine gemeinsame Erbschaft.

Doch kurz bevor das Erbe ausbezahlt wird, verwendet ihre Mutter es, um Playboy Leo aus einer Notlage zu helfen. Unfreiwillig wiedervereint, mussen die Geschwister sich mit altem Groll und falschen Gewissheiten auseinandersetzen. Aber vor allem mussen sie irgendwo frisches Geld auftreiben ... Meisterhaft erzahlter, boser und witziger Familienroman "e;Ein Roman wie gute dunkle Schokolade: elegant und bittersu, so kostlich, dass man ihn in einer Nacht verschlingt."e; Entertainment Weekly
