Review: The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes by Jennifer Crusie, Eileen Dreyer and Anne Stuart

Synopsis: When she was sixteen, Dee fortune kidnapped her two younger sisters and ran from danger. Now twenty-nine, sh'es still trying to control her shape-shifting  power - no easy task when Danny James shows up one Friday morning with his deadly smile and dangerous questions about the past. Lizzie is determined to save her family from financial ruin by turning straw into gold; now, if she could only stop turning forks into bunnies. Then Elric, a sorcerer, appears on Friday - annoyed with the chaos Lizzie is creating in the universe and in his heart. The youngest, Mare, towers above her sisters but her telekinetic power is dwarfed by their gifts. She spends her days at Value Video!! and her nights contemplating the futility of her existence. But the a gorgeous Value Video!! VP and Mar'es long-lost-love turn up...and they all turn up heat on a weekend no Fortune will soon forget. (from the back of the book)

Review: I picked this up at two of the three authors are the same as Dogs and Goddesses, which I rather enjoyed.  This wasn't as good at Dogs and Goddesses but it was amusing and a good read. I enjoyed the three sisters (Mare was my favorite) and the intertwinning stories. If you're looking for a pleasent beach read, this is a good choice.

Prude Note: There are several sex scenes but each is important to the development of the characters, and the story. None are gratuitus as often occurs in these sort of novels. They are easy to skip, if you wish, but there is nothing disgustingly graphic about them, just your usual romance novel heaving and swelling.
