The Big Shuffle (2006)

Hallie Palmer, the oldest of 10 children, leaves college to take over as temporary head of the family, after the sudden death of her father and her mother's nervous breakdown. Despite the help of her two friends, Bernard and Gil, Hallie struggles to deal with the various family dramas, including her sister Louise running away with her boyfriend, and her own break-up with long-distance boyfriend, Craig. This is the third book about card shark Hallie but little reference is made to the two previous books Beginner's Luck and Heart's Desire, so you can just read this book on its own. It's a surprisingly good story about how a family deals with a tragedy and the strong bonds between its members. (XT)
