You know those soap operas where someone's wife dies in a tragic accident that may not be an accident, and his children become wastrels or institutionalized, and someone marries his sister who was given up for adoption years ago without she's related, and there's a horrible second wife who steals his business out from under him and seemingly kills the step-child (who really lives and goes on to seek revenge), and someone is secretly married, and the evil twin turns out to be impersonating him? Oh, and there's a psychopath stalking them all? And you think, "What a far-fetched, absurd, forced story. Could they think of another ridiculous plot point to trot out? Who writes this?" Apparently Anna Maxted could, since that's basically this book. For a while I thought it was so over the top that it was almost poking fun at itself, but I think it was serious. Cliched, undeveloped, stupid characters. Depressing, contrived plot that isn't redeemed with any humor. Dragging pacing, which is pretty amazing when you pack it this full of silly, over the top events. I finally abandoned it, after having almost done so several previous times.
If you can get past the sexual content (necessary for story development) of book one (the book is divided up into 5 books), you will be rewarded with a well written story that makes the melodrama of Dallas and Melrose Place seem tame. Maxted did a wonderful job of creating characters that you love, hate, and love to hate. Even though Maxted departed slightly from her past books the thing that remains the same is her observations on human relationships and showing that love is not always black and white. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a bit of humor, murder, sex, and pop culture in their books.
