Jane Merrick is a wealthy, elderly, difficult invalid woman who is preparing for her approaching death. In her youth, she inherited her money and estate from her fiancé, Thomas Bradley, who died before their wedding took place. With no children of her own, she calls for her three teenaged nieces to visit her, so she can decide who will inherit her estate. They are Louise Merrick, Elizabeth De Graf, and Patsy Doyle, children of Jane's younger brother and sisters. Each of the three cousins is a different type. (Summary by Wikipedia)

When I started listening to this book, I thought I wasn’t going to like this book at all. Each of the characters, Aunt Jane and the three cousins all seemed to be too horrible to be able to endure them for a whole book! But slowly the book grew on me and the storyline with the intrigue over what Aunt Jane would do with her money easily held my attention. I still thought the Aunt was so very cruel. Because of this she seemed to bring out the worst in most everyone else. But somehow, possibly by the attitude and actions of one person, the various characters around Aunt Jane begin to develop the better aspects of their characters. And in various ways, they are able to deal with the results in a less selfish way than they might have done. Previously, I didn’t know of this series of Aunt Jane’s Nieces, but I am looking forward to reading as many of the rest that I can find. The readers were ok with their readings. I do wish the number of readers per book were limited to two or three if not simply one.
