    This book was okay not quite what I expected Instead of an intrigue filled generational novel, I equated the story to a classed up version of a Jackie Collins tale Not that there is anything wrong with Jackie Collins The book is LONG It has to be in a sense because it covers thirty years and almost ten main characters However, I think a bit of judicious editing should have been applied One pet peeve of mine the author likes to repeat phrases and adjectives That got old, quick.I wou This book was okay not quite what I expected Instead of an intrigue filled generational novel, I equated the story to a classed up version of a Jackie Collins tale Not that there is anything wrong with Jackie Collins The book is LONG It has to be in a sense because it covers thirty years and almost ten main characters However, I think a bit of judicious editing should have been applied One pet peeve of mine the author likes to repeat phrases and adjectives That got old, quick.I would have enjoyed this bookas a beach summer read not as a story to fill in my Downton Abbey need which is what one of the reviewers said

    I read this book for the 1st time a long time ago So it was all new to me.What a plot and what a style of writing Penny Vincenzi has.The title does not do justice to the book, it is fabulous It is sexy, glamorous and fun, this story of two sisters and one brother who found out that they all had different fathers.Alexander, the Earl of Caterham, was married to their mother but is obsessed with this estate, the house, etc.Some parts are still a mystery to me, for instance did the Earl really try I read this book for the 1st time a long time ago So it was all new to me.What a plot and what a style of writing Penny Vincenzi has.The title does not do justice to the book, it is fabulous It is sexy, glamorous and fun, this story of two sisters and one brother who found out that they all had different fathers.Alexander, the Earl of Caterham, was married to their mother but is obsessed with this estate, the house, etc.Some parts are still a mystery to me, for instance did the Earl really try to poison his grandson If the book was not over 900 pages I would say it was unputdownable

    Classic Vincenzi Large cast of characters, melodrama galore, women with voracious sexual appetites You know what you re getting I always enjoy her novels in a junk food kind of way I know that it s not particularly good for me, but I figure I ll atone for it later.

    This book had so much potential to be an amazing, Syndey Sheldon type family saga However, it just didn t quite get to that exciting, can t put it down point for me.I felt there were parts that seemed dull Story jumps back and forth in time between the numerous characters in the novel The plot seemed thin and it took forever to get to the point many times Almost like the story could really have been told in half the pages This author came recommended to me and I will likely try another by h This book had so much potential to be an amazing, Syndey Sheldon type family saga However, it just didn t quite get to that exciting, can t put it down point for me.I felt there were parts that seemed dull Story jumps back and forth in time between the numerous characters in the novel The plot seemed thin and it took forever to get to the point many times Almost like the story could really have been told in half the pages This author came recommended to me and I will likely try another by her just to compare, but this particular book did not make me a fan

    Long winded If I had to describe this book in one phrase, that s what I d say The story was interesting enough with family secrets, trust fund kids, Wall Street greed, sex, attempted murder, office politics, revenge, lust, family politics, affairs, English aristocracy, alcoholism, drugs, jealousy, rivalries, andsecrets, andsex, this book haddrama than any soap opera or Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode, but good grief, it was a couple hundred pages too long

    It was amazing.It reads like a thriller, first it seems to be a Romance but the thriller only becomes apparent towards the end, it is very hidden A very very good book.Alexander, who owns Hartest, is impotent and will go to whatever it takes to conceal this.It linked in to my life and explained things.
