4.0 out of 5 stars Hooked 26 May 2007
Format:Paperback
At the opening of this novel Cressida Forrest and Oliver Bergin are hosting their nearest and dearest at a pre-wedding dinner the night before they are due to be married. But by dawn Cressida has disappeared and the before long it's not just Cressida's secrets that unfold.

From extramarital affairs to financial dodgy dealings and all the bits in between this book has it all. I won't say too much about who's involved in which bits as it'll ruin the surprise. What I will say however is that this book isn't all doom and gloom. There are happy endings, there are new beginnings but there's more secrets and lies than anything. And they're gonna keep you hooked to see how each part fits into the next. Each chapter is told from the perspective of a different character and it's so masterfully done that switching from character to character is easy.

All in all a thoroughly engrossing book and I'll be picking up a few more Penny Vincenzi's to add to my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart wrenching love and trauma in equal measures 18 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is the first book of Penny Vincenzi's that i have read and i can honestly say that it is the best book i have read in a long while. The characters draw you in and it leaves you taking a long hard look at those who you are closest to and wondering if you really know them as well a you think you do. My only grumble is that a sequel has not been written. Fantastic !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable! 26 Feb 2007
By Sticky
Format:Paperback
I started this book on Friday night and finished it on Sunday night - and it is over 600 pages! I haven't read a book in ages that had me so hooked. The story takes place over a 48 hour period and each chapter is written from a different characters perspective - all the while moving it on at a pace. To start with, while the characters were being established, I thought I was getting confused and wouldn't remember certain facts but it all soon fell in to place. I found the end a little unrewarding but difficult to say why without giving the plot away!

2.0 out of 5 stars beware, spoiler contained in review.... 22 May 2008
Format:Paperback
What an absolute load of drivel! Can't believe how disappointed I was with this book. The plot centres around a bride who disappears on the morning of her wedding and the effect it has on both her family and the grooms. However, about half way through the book, the author seems to lose sight of this and it shifts focus to only a couple of members of the brides family. I only kept reading as I wanted to find out what had happened to the Bride, and guess what? You don't!!! What a waste of time.
And to top it all, the author was rubbish at establishing the characters at the beginning of the book, so much so, I found myself turning back a few pages to see who she was talking about. I shouldn't have to do that.
Shame really, recently read another of Vincenzi's and I was hooked from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic holiday reading 23 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
This is the first of Penny Vincenzi's books I have read and I really enjoyed it. The characters were created is great detail and it was easy to imagine them from this. The book is great escapism and was just what I was looking for from my holiday read. It reminded me slightly of Jilly Cooper books I used to read in my teens (because of the quite lavish lifestyles and things the characters got up to!), but I found this to be much more sophisticated and clever.
Other reviewers have complained that you don't get to find out certain things to do with Cressida's disappearance but I think you get to know enough and can draw from that what you will. The way things unfold about Cressida is very cleverly done and you find yourself at times sympathising with her and others (mostly!) seriously disliking her.
I have already started me next Vincenzi book and can't wait to see how that unfolds!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight but ok 30 May 2008
By Anon
Format:Paperback
This is the second Penny Vincenzi book I have read and so far Im not sure about them......perhaps I just havent found the best ones yet.
I did enjoy it for the distraction value it provided - lots of unreal characters who live in a very different universe to me it seems ! - but I would also have to agree with other reviewers that the plot or plots seem to go a bit astray in places and some characters are too easily dropped out of the storyline without sufficient explanation.
I cant explain my main irritation - re the bride - without spoiling too much of the story but I would definately say that the ending was a huge let down to me and left me feeling there were still loose ends to be tied up.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good story but............ 5 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
An interesting story with many 'twists' but some characters lacked depth (perhaps too many characters in the story).
I never quite understood the personality of the 'Run Away Bride' nor did I have the feeling that her father, James, was a villain for having married for convience, and for keeping a mistress.
Yet, I couldn't put the book down.

Typical Vincenzi - a long book with many characters (so many initially, that I had to write them down to work out who was who) but this just adds to the richness of the plot. Read more

excellent, unputdownable! so much more substance to a Penny Vincenti novel that to many of the modern chicklit authors. I have red all of her books - more than once.
