Hearts of Gold Series
on 18 September 2014
Hearts of Gold Series Books 1-8 .... 5 stars each and every one. Absolutely excellent. Right up to the end of Book 8, I hadn't been aware that there was a Book 9 so I was absolutely thrilled to finish Book 8 and discovered that there was a 9. However that was where my thrill ended. I started Magda's Daughter totally lost and confused. Who is Ned? That question was answered some time near the beginning in a passing comment. When I discovered who Ned was, I was really disappointed that a whole chunk of the characters' lives I had come to really enjoy had disappeared. After buying 8 books, I felt cheated. I wanted this to be a book 20 something. I wanted my books 9-19 to fill the gaps. I wanted to be a part of Diane and Ronnie's life. You could just tell they were going to be so good together. We got a tiny taster in Book 8 then nothing!
I am going to give this Book 9 the 5-star rating it deserves because although this was a big disappointing end to an absolutely fantastic series, this book on its own was a really good read. I hope I'm making sense. The book itself was great, it was the fact the author just sort of latched it on to the end of a really good series that disappointed me.
