I always buy a Penny Vincenzi as soon as it is published, and generally get to read it in the next couple of weeks. I enjoyed Sheer Abandon from the very first page, it is a stimulating and interesting read. Vincenzi seems to be able to bring the characters alive to the degree that you think you know them yourself, you can almost work out what they will do next, recognise their selfishness etc.
If you are looking for an enjoyable, relaxing read then this is the book for you, the whole 632 pages of it!
For what it is worth I have given 4 stars rather than 5 as I felt some of the plot lines and twists were too predictable, nonetheless still a thoroughly enjoyable book. Enjoy!!!

I always buy a Penny Vincenzi as soon as it comes out. She is a brilliant writer, develops the characters to the degree that you would think you actually know them yourself. The twists and turns throughout the book make for very stimualting reading, it can seem daunting to face 632 pages but they fly by ... if you fancy a good read this is the book for you.
For what it is worth I have only given this book 4 starts instead of 5 because I felt some of the plot lines were too predictable - make no mistake though it is still a good read.
