5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too
New York high society returns with Dina absent from town; she's taken up traveling to find her true love. He signed up for the army rather than deal with his new scheming wife. Will they find a way to be together after all?

Meanwhile, Dina's sister gains a new house and finally discovers something suspicious about her new husband. He's not very nice, but was...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
The story was a little bit of a let down, mostle because of its poorly written and thought-out ending.

Pros:
- the style
- Lina's story
Cons:
- the ending
- Di's behaviour throughout the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing end to the story, 30 April 2012
By 
This review is from: Splendor (Luxe) (Paperback)
(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Fourth and final book in the `Luxe' series.
Having just read the previous three books in this series I was desperate to read Splendor and find out how it all ended, and who ended up with whom. Having just finished it I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed.

The book gets off to a bit of a slow start. Diana has gone off in search of Henry and is working in a bar in Cuba. Henry comes into the bar and they meet and rekindle their affair.

Penelope has remained in New York where she has claimed to have had a miscarriage to explain the fact that she is not really pregnant. She has caught the attention of a Prince, and seems less set on staying with Henry now.

Lina has bought a house with her new inheritance, and is now waiting for her own love interest to return from his travels.

Elizabeth is living with her new husband, and has recently been decorating their new home.

To be honest, it's a bit boring! Especially after the excitement of `Envy'. Some people do get what they deserve, I'll say that, but otherwise it's a bit of a let-down.

It's really difficult to tell you why without spoiling the story for those of you that want to read this, but lets just say that only one of the Holland sister's get's a happy ending, and this is a last minute kind-of thing.

So overall, I'm disappointed. While I'm happy that one sister finally got to be happy, I didn't like how the book ended for everybody else, and it was so slow and boring that it didn't hold my attention the way the other books did.
5.5 out of 10.

This review is from: Splendor (Luxe) (Hardcover)
New York high society returns with Dina absent from town; she's taken up traveling to find her true love. He signed up for the army rather than deal with his new scheming wife. Will they find a way to be together after all?

Meanwhile, Dina's sister gains a new house and finally discovers something suspicious about her new husband. He's not very nice, but was she too late in discovering the truth?

Penelope's husband leaves her for the army, but she finds a prince visiting New York. He takes a keen interest in her and she might have mistaken Henry as the highest society. Who wants to be a lady when she could be a princess?

Carolina throws the biggest party of the year and everyone wants an invitation. In the midst of all the people she's worked so hard to fool, she finds herself lonely until a certain boy returns home. Could wedding bells be in her future?

There's love in the air and these girls are determined to find their happily ever after. They're not about to let anything stand in their way - including each other.

In the final book of THE LUXE series, love is won and lost, fortunes gained, and society whispers about these grand ladies as reputations dwindle and soar, and betrayals occur - all in the quest for happiness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, shame about the ending., 27 Oct 2011
This review is from: Splendor (Luxe) (Paperback)
Overall, the book is brilliant but it is a shame about the ending. I feel that it could have been...better? More interesting? More final perhaps as I would have liked to know what happened to Diana in later life.
