Format: Paperback
I like Erica Spindler. Up until a couple of months ago I'd seen her books and just written her off as another one of those authors who was sold in supermarkets. How wrong I was. I read "see Jane Die" in an evening and within a few days ordered a fair amount of her back catalogue and liked 'em all. Other than this one.
I like to think I'm quite widely read, and don't favour one genre in particular. As voracious a reader as I am, I can't stand romance novels and this certainly seemed like one. It felt like Erica took a pinch of VC Andrews, another pinch of Jeffrey Archer and an echo of herself and came up with this.
The narrative is a simple love story with the usual complications of people not wanting to put themselves out there and get hurt, being brought up in dire circumstances, sigh sigh cliche. The main protaganists are polar opposites (and inevitably unbelieveably attracted to eachother because of it) and there are so many cliched plot twists I really only persevered because, well, I hoped it would get better.
The most interesting part of the novel was the serial killer who was just glossed over. Instead we had some bizarre pastiche of Snow White and the wicked step mother and a happy ever after.
In fairness, it wasn't badly written, and wrapped up tidily. I just much much prefer her other work.

I bought this book because I had read Blood Vines and enjoyed it .I thought Forbidden Fruit was something more akin to a Mills and Boon and nothing like the thriller I was hoping to read .I couldn't take it seriously ,I gave up half way through .I like a good thriller ,such as Jeffery Deavers The Kill Room ,the new Harry Hole thriller Police is my next read.

This is one of the best Erica Spindler books I've read. I couldn't put it down. It tells the story of three generations of Pierron women, a troubled boy who becomes a cop, and a jealous friend! Also a murderer who leaves an apple with each victim. You'll never guess who the murderer is until the very end. Brilliant.

I usually like Erica Spindler Books they move along with a pace and usually there is a lot of action but his one was not up to the usual standard. A slightly messy story and not a lot seemed to be happening.

This is the second Erica Spindler book I've read and it certainly won't be the last. Very enjoyable with convincing characters and a well developed storyline. Would thoroughly recommend this book.

This was very different to Erica Spindler's usual thriller novels, but I loved it. Brought to mind a dramatic American soap opera and I would love to see it turned into a mini series.

Page turner for sure but a bit disappointed to find out who the killer was! Didn't feel it tied in with the story, guess I was hoping for a bit more of a twist!
