Love Biltmore - this book, not so much
on January 4, 2013
The premise sounded interesting - romances taking place in Biltmore over Christmas! The Vanderbilt Mansion in Asheville, NC is the largest individual home in the US and is positively breathtaking. In fact, some of the most interesting bits in the first story were those that brought you into the house and gave descriptions--for anyone who has been there, it was easy to envision the places and picture some actual life in them. However, these four stories of four sisters who find love while working at Biltmore are not only written by four separate authors, it is pretty obvious that they were written without a lot of cooperation. A sister you come to care for in the first story, for instance, completely disappears in the other three, never to be heard from again. They might as well have been four total strangers. The writing is uneven, and I don't recommend this book.
