Formula is fairly basic - you need an oppressed but clever female in love with an arrogant rich male - usually both married to other people - throw in some exotic locations carefully researched using foreign guide books , and some period costume and cars .
The book gets churned out at the other end and gives you an unlike able , selfish heroine who puts her own unhappiness before every one else's and an arrogant , good in bed man who eventually wins her hand - the chaos and unhappiness they create in their wake takes no account of the long term effects of their behaviour on anyone at all - happy ever after ?
One presumes not in the due course of such things - but at least everything is hurriedly resolved on the last two pages - who cares about all the meaningless twists and turns it took to get there ?
Last PV book I will buy - if you've got one, you've got them all .
The story follows the life of Cassia, a promising Doctor to be who has her dreams cut short. Instead of leading the high-flying career that she dreamed of she finds herself with the title of Dr's wife in a country practice. When her Godmother dies and leaves her a fortune Cassia soon finds herself questioning not only her status as Dr's wife but her entire marriage and life in general.
Windfall doesn't just follow Cassia's story but the stories of all of her friends as they go through the trials and tribulations that life throws their way. It makes for a really good read and one where you find yourself asking `mmmm wonder how that'll turn out'. Luckily you find out the answer to all your questions before you reach the last page. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
A great read as always from Penny Vinzenci
