JAK is a big favourite of mine, I have read over 70 titles written by her under her various pseudonyms and have purchased more than 60 of them but I'm afraid I will not be buying this one.The storyline is very insubstantial not up to her usual standard. Hannah Jesset inherits her late aunt's house and papers whilst being pursued by Gideon Cage who met her when he all but destroyed her brother's company in his lifelong pursuit of a fast profit.The story is woven very loosely around their relationship and amid a couple of attempts on Hannah's life by an unknown assailant.(Well, I think the assailant was supposed to be unknown - I had this person pegged from the word go.)Both the main characters appear to be going through a very early mid-life crisis and frankly are somewhat one dimensional.Gideon never convinces me that he is a ruthless high powered business predator and Hannah is so self absorbed it is difficult to develop any empathy for her at all - most unusual in a JAK book. The heroine spends a lot of time debating whether to follow her aunt's career and become famous or settle for family life with Gideon.Rather as if no woman can actually manage more than one thing at a time when most of us manage to juggle ten and with a lot less fuss!The story just becomes exasperating, too wordy by half - give this one a miss or if you still want to check it out get it from the library and put your money towards one of JAK's better efforts. Try Trust Me , a personal favourite ,Sharp Edges, Absolutely Positively, to name but three,all full of terrific characters, good storylines and an underlying thread of humour.Or go for her futuristic novels as Jayne Castle - superb! If you are an historical fan try her novels as Amanda Quick.Very entertaining so long as you are not too picky about historical accuracy! This book is one of her poorest but she is entitled to the odd off day with such a wonderful, prolific output!
