    disappointing

    this book was not what i was expecting from lynn michaels. i really liked mother of the bride and after i read it a couple of times, return engagement. maybe i'll like this one better after reading it a few times too. i just didn't like the character of chase. he was exactly what the other characters thought, condescending arrogant jerk. this might have worked if he had come to this realizaiton about himself sooner into the story instead of the ending. i was just annoyed by the actions of this character and jill and it's hard to find a book enjoyable when the characters are hard to relate to. instead of suddenly making chase in love with dory, a slower realization would have made the book much better. also, the weird family relations between dierdre, jamie, and others on that side of the family just didn't make too much sense. just not what i was expecting!

    Awesome!

    The story begins in the Summer of 1988 and continues until the present date. Little Dory Lambert followed her gorgeous older sister, Jill. This time Jill had been meeting Chase (the chauffeur's son that Dory had a major crush on) in secret. When Dory's dad (Del) and Chase's dad (Charles) caught them, Chase was sent off to college. Dory's mother (Drusilla), who pampered Jill but only tolerated her, grounded Dory for spying while she and Jill flew to visit relatives in London. They returned with James Darwood. Drusilla nagged Del until he gave James a job in his bank, even though James had been fired from a London bank for pilfering the till. Needless-to-say, while Del and Drusilla were off in the Caribbean, James and Marilyn (Jill's best friend) stole $34.6 million in a wire transfer from the bank Del owned to a bank in Belize. Then the couple disappeared. ......................................... ......................... ................ US Attorney Marshall Philips froze Del's assets, but could not touch the things Del's sister (Aunt Ping) had in her name, which was quite a bit. Since Marshall could not locate James and he was mad at Aunt Ping, he quit looking for James and was waiting for Del to return to the States so he could be arrested. Thus, he kept FBI agents following Dory, Jill, and Aunt Ping. Of course, Del and Drusilla must remain in Isla Rica until James could be captured. But they had plenty of money and lived like royalty, UNLIKE Dory, Jill, and Aunt Ping. .......................................... ........................ .................. The years pass. Dory now has her M.B.A. and one savvy entrepreneurial spirit. She is determined to clear the family name. Her ideas has kept the wolves from the door so far. Surprises still happen. Turns out James does not know he is a father. When Marilyn dies, her three-year-old son, Jamie and Aunt Deirdre arrive to live with Dory's family. Dory loves Jamie instantly. ........................................ .......................... .............. Re-enter Chase, who is now a multi-millionaire. He wants his father to retire. But Charles absolutely refuses. Dory never got over her childhood crush on Chase. Yet, once again, Chase has eyes only for Jill's beauty (just like every other male that still breathes). ........................................... ....................... .................... ***** Yes, it is necessary to be that detailed in the synopsis. But trust me, I really gave away nothing vital. If you love witty novels with strong characters such as in 'Scruples', 'I'll Take Manhattan', and 'Princess Daisy', then you will ADORE this book! I fell in love with Jamie (whether he was age 3 or 10 at the time). I admired Dory and Aunt Ping. My opinion of Jill and Chase kept changing. And the Feds are great. Dory and her staff kept the Feds, and me, laughing with the codes and nicknames they used for each other on the walkie talkies. Oh please do not miss this delightful novel! *****

    fine family drama

    In 1988 Kansas City, wealthy Daddy Lambert and his chauffeur Charles McKay catch the former¿s daughter Jilly with the latter¿s son Chase. Daddy pays for Chase to attend Cornell as an architect student while mom takes Jilly to Europe with her, punishing her other daughter Dory for spying on her older sister.--- Several years later, Mom pressures her Daddy into hiring her English nephew James at the Lambert Bank and Trust. Over the next few years, Dory obtains a business degree, Chase becomes a wealthy successful architect and due to his aunt, James becomes the wire room supervisor. In 1994, while Daddy and Mom cruise the Caribbean, James and an accomplice embezzle 34.6 million, but the evidence incriminates Daddy too. Daddy and Mom live in exile to avoid arrest; Dory and her aunt struggle to save the family fortune and make retribution to investors. However, when Chase returns to Kansas City, he and Dory are attracted to one another, but he seems to spend his time with Jilly. Will he select the wrong sister again even as personal problems involving the missing James continue to surface?--- This is an exciting contemporary romantic suspense though the intrigue plays more of an enabler than that of an action thriller as readers see how various members of the Lambert family cope with adversity. Dory and her aunt adjust nicely while Jilly struggles but tries. On the other Mom is a caricature who is unable to see how her actions led to the downfall although James is the culprit taking advantage of his relative¿s stupidity. Fans will enjoy this fine family drama.--- Harriet Klausner
