The mystery of the woman in black wasn’t much of a mystery to me. I saw it for what it was as soon as the lights came on next door. That did not keep me from being engrossed in this train wreck of a family and the disastrous consequences of secrets, lies, deception, incest, and a plethora of other nouns not to be mentioned. Wow, this is one messed up family but I can’t get enough. Does that make me a bad person if I find joy in reading about such things? No, that makes the author a great story teller and I am along for the ride until the end. If you haven’t read this series, or seen the movies (Lifetime), then please do. They are cringe worthy but so good that you won’t put them down. Definitely recommend!
I'm almost sorry I started rereading this series. It started because I realized I never read Garden of Shadows, which I really liked & I should have stopped there. (Not re-hash the past so to speak)
Second! At the end Chris and Cathy's mom Corrine said she married John Amos Jackson because she was blackmailed or threatened or whatever. (Not Romantic)
Isn't he her 3rd cousin on her mom Olivia's side? I get they are not blood related bc her real mom is Alicia. Whew! The whole devil spawn thing, I didn't know if John Amos knew that Olivia wasn't her birth mother. ??? (He knew everything else)
****Why? Why? Why? Did Olivia & Malcolm's secret about who Corrine's real mom was never reviled ?? That was a secret that the 3 of them took to their grave (3rd being Alicia; Malcolm Sr.'s 2nd wife)
Get over Chris & Cathy being "together""together" I swear there is something about their "sinful relationship" in every other chapter, 3 out of 5 books it's that way! Its like digging up a dead dog (and we have 2 dead dogs & a kitten in this book) we get it but my good golly, really? Ugh!z
Bart has issues, a lot of them, blame Cathy for not being a mom to him. He was conceived out of revenge, yes she loved Bart Sr. but hated her mom more. She didn't hurt her mom, she hurt her son, sorry excuse.
If she didn't want the baby (Bart) she could have given him to her mom Corrine who really did love him (maybe the only one)
I would never live with a child that scared me, that hurt other family members & pulling a knife on people.... Nope Loony Bin admitting one.
But like all the books, so many things left unanswered....
When I first read this in my early 20s, I couldn't put any of the books in this series down. Prompted by the lifetime movie remake for "Flowers...", I decided to reread the series since I remembered enjoying them so much. But now that I'm in my mid 40's, I just didn't enjoy this book as much. Perhaps it's my age, my increased educational level since then, or that I am a mother of 2 daughters. If either of my children acted as Bart does, there would be some discipline. The reader just wants to shake Cathy and Chris and say wake up for the sake of the kids! As for the chapters that have Bart narrating, I couldn't stand. He really got under my skin. I guess that would indicate the author is talented enough to make the reader hate a character that much. But I hated him so much I had to force myself to continue to read the book.
Also, since the ebook before this one had a lot of typos and grammatical errors, I found myself focusing more on looking to see if this ebook was just as bad. In all I counted 18 typos for mispelled words, etc throughout this book. They even mispelled Bart one time as "Bard". Very disappointing to pay money for a well known published book that has this many errors.
In the last book, she was too busy using men to fit her agenda to pay much attention to her first son, Jory. Unless he was a prop in one of those relationships in which she trapped the men.
This book, the third in the series, the story is told in both Bart's and Jory's points of view. Cathy and Chris start a new life together...as man and wife, and not platonically. They believed the kids were young enough when they started a new life that the kids wouldn't remember the past.
All was going well, sort of. Cathy and Jory were very close because Cathy ran a ballet school, and Jory was a dancer. Of course, they shared that bond. Also Jory was very graceful and had hundreds of pictures of his father, Julian Marquet, a world famous ballet dancer who'd danced with his mother.
Bart, however, was clumsy. He pretty much broke everything he touched. Cathy and Chris lied to him about who his father was. In fact, Chris and Cathy both lied to the kids about who Chris was. They said he was the brother of Cathy's second husband. So Bart was a confused little boy who didn't have the grace and charm of his older brother...or the attention of his parents.
Then a mysterious old lady and her creepy butler move in next door, and things change. For the worse.
