I’ve been reading. Thought I would share my thoughts with you.
The first book I read was this one:
I have followed the fortunes of the Scandalous Summerfields as each of them found happiness. Each of the four books in the series has been immensely satisfying, and the final one, “Bound by their secret passion”, was no exception. It managed to tie up the loose ends and round off the series clearly, while also being a complete story in itself. And what a story! It had everything: intrigue, extortion, star crossed lovers and a scandal. I found myself turning the pages quicker and quicker, wondering how on earth they would get out of this mess.
I did find Lorene’s mother a little much, but I think that was deliberate. She was one of those people – and I’ve met them in real life – that you want to shake and scream at. Of course, you never do, and they go blithely on, causing mayhem. In fact, my reaction to Lady Summerfield is testament to how real she was.
The real shame of this book was that, in finishing it, I’m no longer able to dip into the lives of the Scandalous Summerfields. Thank you, Diane Gaston, for four very wonderful books.
