“Vincenzi is poised to fill the gap in the American realm of Cinderella fiction.” Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“The doyenne of the modern blockbuster” (Glamour) returns with her signature writing style and eye for strong characters in A Perfect Heritage.
The House of Farrell is a prolific skincare company and home of The Cream, an iconic face product that has seen women flocking to its flagship London store since 1953. At Farrell, you can rely on the personal touch that has been their trademark for generations. The legendary Athina Farrell remains the company’s figurehead and in her kingdom at the Berkeley Arcade, while Florence Hamilton plies their cosmetics with the utmost care and discretion. She is sales advisorand holder of secretsextraordinaire.
But of course the world of cosmetics is changing and the once glorious House of Farrell is now in decline, its customers tempted away by more fashionable brands. With no idea how to right the ship, Athina hires Bianca Bailey, a formidable businesswoman, mother of three, and someone who always gets her way. Athina and Bianca lock horns over the future of the House of Farrell but it is the past that tells its devastating tale of ambition and ego, passion and wonder.
A perfect summer read, this is Penny Vincenzi at her finest.

I've been a major fan since The Spoils of Time Trilogy starting with NO ANGEL. This is another of Penny's finest!!
This is a wonderful book. I am a big fan of the author Penny Vincenzi including her No Angel trilogy. She may have have some other books I haven't read yet and now that this book has reminded me how great her books are I will be checking the B&N website for those. I read only on my Nook HD.
