Dearly Departed 3.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

I read this because I so much enjoyed her Turpentine Lane, Family Man and Good Riddance. I expected Dearly Departed to be light, breezy and to have some laugh out loud moments - even when dealing with sad or difficult issues - which is the Author's trademark. Dearly Departed was not my cup of tea. It had some adult content, and is a departure from the Author's usual excellent character depth and snappy, witty dialogue. It seemed difficult to figure out what the point of the was. Skipped around a lot, and was a rather slow read.

The accidental death of a woman and her lover brings her daughter and his son together fot the funeral. As the story unfolds, we find out they are step siblings. Set in a small, rural american town, the story has a certain charm and keeps the reader's interest to the end.

This is another great Lipman novel. The premise of the story is unusual. The characters are well drawn, which is Lipman's talent.
