Gloriously unputdownable (Woman & Home)
Highly addictive (Daily Telegraph)
A guaranteed bestseller. Travel, romance, mystery and politics in one novel (Grazia)
A gloriously tempestuous and romantic mix; trembling lust and dark secrets (Daily Express)
Set against a background of newspaper journalism and politics, and the exhilarating freedom of the backpackers' trail, SHEER ABANDON is perhaps the most exciting and intriguing of all Penny Vincenzi's novels so far. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

Love reading Penny Vincenzi, keep up the excellent work please
What a very, VERY odd book from such an accomplished story teller. If you find it cheaply in a boot sale and you are planning a long reading period due to enforced confinement - go for it. Otherwise, don't bother. Buy all of her other books instead, though!! Now those are truly EXCELLENT reads.
As usual the plot twists and turns with a mystery at its heart; the fact that I correctly solved the mystery this time by a quarter the way through in no way spoilt my enjoyment. Finding out if I was right and how it would unfold made for compelling reading.
Lovely intelligent froth and right on form. May you live and write to be 100, Panny.
ETA I've just re-read this, having read and hated the latest book and all has fallen into place for me. It's obvious that there has been a change of editor in the last five years as all the things that have irritated me in the last couple of novels are missing.
A plea to you and your publishers, Penny, please bring back your old editor, their skills enhanced your books immeasurably.
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.
