Vermont, accidental shooting in the garden at night, granddaughters, a trial, a matriarch

I am trying to find out the name of this wonderful novel that retells the story of an accidental shooting in a garden at night. The story takes place in flashback covering a matriarch, her two grown children, their spouses and the two first cousins who are forced to spend the summers together at their grandmother's summer house.

Well written, fast paced and smartly told. Yet, I cannot remember the title or author. Help me Obi Wan Kenobi.

Thank you.
