It's an upper class world. Quite a few cliches perhaps, but still very enjoyable ones. Isn't it nice in the everyday life of most of us to read about new CEO of Farrells Bianca Bailey and long time Director Florence Hamilton stepping into CHANEL in Paris and buying a beautiful bag. Florence in her eighties, forever chic in a vintage Chanel cardigan.
But even if the characters in this book are mostly well moneyed, their lives are not without obstacles. Love can never be bought. Comfort and harmony only to a certain extent.
"A Perfect Heritage" is a book going much deeper than its seemingly light upper class banter might initially indicate. I found it much more than just light "beach reading", a lot between the lines which made me enthralled and sometimes nodding fondly at my own memories, both happy and bittersweet ones.
A treasure for Vincenzi addicts. New readers will be hooked.
The paragraphs do not always follow on and leave you wondering who am I reading about now. Very boring and monotonous in parts.
Not a good one at all
My only criticism is of the story itself, if Athina Farrell had such a good business, why was she on the edge of bankruptcy at the start of the book? No-one ever put this question forward, either as one of the characters or during the narrative. I was waiting for someone to say it the whole time - the opportunities were endless and it would have been a real put-down for Athina, making her the recipient of such a remark for a change. I really didn't take to her character at all (I'm not sure we readers were meant to) and would have enjoyed seeing her brought down a peg or two. It would have counterbalanced her 'high and mighty' attitude to the rest of the world, which seemed to dominate the book, a little too much.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed it and would recommend it to PV's fans.
I have read all her books and this does not compare with her earlier novels, I loved loved loved the Lytton saga, three books all unputdownable and you cannot give a bigger compliment.
After reading those I would buy the next book and not want to start reading it because I did not want it to be finished. I liked the dea of it sitting there waiting for me to uncover its secrets.
I am not sure why I am not enjoying Penny as much as I used to, the story lines are good and diverse but I think perhaps she feels that the more characters there are, the more scope she has for more story lines but then they become too many, rather thin and not so convincing.
I hope she will do another family saga which we can sink into, know the characters, like some and hate others.
The main characters range from 13 to mid-80s and they and their challenges were easy to engage with and be interested in their stories.
A nice happy ending rounded it off well.
