Triptych is a tale of three sisters. They all live together in a mansion on the bank of the Potomac River.
Sybil is the youngest, and keeps her older sisters on their toes with her propensity for flitting around willy nilly and lifting her skirts.
Honor is the oldest and more staid of the three, kind of like their fairy godmother, tempering their rash decisions.
Miranda is the middle child and seems to be the most grounded. She's funny, self-confident and adventurous.
When Sybil takes an off the cuff comment seriously and goes to Craig's List to find an aristocrat for a companion, the other sisters, after getting over the shock of someone actually answering the ad, decide to let the mysterious Luc Rever, Chevalier du Bon Aranaque, come and stay for a week. Who knows, maybe it'll work and she'll land her man.
Just as a precaution, they invite a family friend, Dieter, and his visiting grandson, Corey, to stay at the house while the stranger is visiting.
Pretty soon this quaint life on the river is thrown topsy-turvy as the sisters are drawn into the middle of an art theft.
In the beginning, the story flows smoothly along the shores of the Potomac, but as you read on, it picks up pace, the current rushes around the configuration of the three rocks called The Three Sisters, and as you get caught up in the chase, you end up in the rapids, rushing to the conclusion.
Triptych may be categorized as erotic, but I found more developed romance than just beyond the bedroom door scenes.
It was fun watching these sisters interact and live together. I sometimes felt like I was in another time. A step back to when life was gentler, more family oriented.
Then, situations jolt me back to the present as characters step forward and take charge.
Filled with pictorial surroundings and down to earth characters, Triptych is a grand adventure with a sensual bouquet of women looking for love.
I have three older sisters and we are all so different. Triptych took me back to when we all lived under one roof. Wow, what wonderful, outrageous fun we had. We may have gotten on each others nerves now and then, but in a pinch we were a united front, a Triptych plus one!
I received this book for my honest review.
It's a question of whether the Tryptich is the rock formation called the Three Sisters in the Potomac River or the three sisters in the Queen Anne mansion on its banks, but either way, you'll enjoy this tale of art theft, thwarted romance, and two people who dare to face it all.
I enjoyed the main characters- three sisters. They have their differences and their similarities, and their characters each left their mark in the story. Many times, Sybil drove me crazy. Sometimes she acts like such a spoiled brat. Out of the three, I'd have to say Miranda is my favorite sister.
M.S. Spencer's intriguing tale of romance and suspense keeps the reader on their toes with twists and turns. You can expect the unexpected.
