Emma's Secret by Barbara Taylor Bradford is a rare super sequel that lives up to all the hype. If you are a fan of Bradford's books, you will be so satisfied with getting a bonus glimpse at the Harte and O'Neil families from A Woman of Substance. If you are a first-time reader of Barbara's, this isn't a bad book to begin with, though you might want to get familiar with this series by reading the earlier 3 books, or watching the DVD's of the movies. Thanks for bringing back Emma!

Why did you stoop to sleeze, Barbara?

This is a good follow-up to the first three books, but the steamy sex scene does not need to be so graphic and completely descriptive! Did Ms. Bradford intend to write a 'how-to' book? This style of writing doesn't even fit her style throughout the rest of the book. ...
This is a good follow-up to the first three books, but the steamy sex scene does not need to be so graphic and completely descriptive! Did Ms. Bradford intend to write a 'how-to' book? This style of writing doesn't even fit her style throughout the rest of the book. It all but glares from the pages and doesn't really help the story. We have so much blatant sex hitting us in the face from all directions, all the time, couldn't we have expected better writing throughout this book, in the style of the original trilogy from this author? Having expressed this opinion, I must add that I recommend the reading of this book for all those Emma Harte fans out there.

    Emma Harte's original books

    Loved the original Emma Harte books and disappounted not to see books 1 - 3 offered for purchase for my nook. Rate the original series as 5 star. Holding off purchasing others to reread the original 3!!

    Enough, Already

    I have read all of Barbara Taylor Bradford's books. They have ranged from outstanding to mediocre. One of the best books, in my opinion, was her first -- 'A Woman of Substance.' She wrote, in great detail and meticulously researched, of Emma Harte, a poor servant girl who rose to become one of the world's richest women. The story was spell-binding and I loved it! However, she has milked Emma's story with three sequels, each of which tells of Emma's descendants and extended family, and each of which is less compelling than the previous. They are watered-down versions, none of which have the power or interest of the original. Although she's probably made millions by doing this, I think Ms. Bradford should have stopped with the first. I think the three sequels have deteriorated an extraordinary story.

    Definitely not her best book

    This book really goes nowhere...although it's not that bad, it left me hanging as there was no real resolution with the 'bad' cousin. Perhaps a sequel is in the works? Definitely not as good as A woman of Substance!!
