Rich girl. Poor girl.
Enemies—and rivals.
Two women in love with the same man.

Beautiful, pampered Park Avenue heiress, Deedee Dahlen, and Lana Bantry, abused child from the wrong side of the tracks, live in different worlds. They share a father but not an inheritance, a lover but not a commitment, and they do not know of each other's existence...Until Slash Steiner—the man with the Midas touch—bring the two women face to face in a searing confrontation.

LOVE AND MONEY is the dramatic story of an illicit triangle and a deadly family secret. Ruth Harris is the million-copy New York Times bestselling author and Romantic Times award winner for "best contemporary."

Two words that come to mind to describe Love and Money are archetypical and epic. The story of a child born to privilege who ends up raised by poor parents is as old as Oedipus. I have vague memories, although I haven’t been able to dredge the details from the recesses of my memory, of a kid’s folk tale with two sons of a king, one raised in the castle and the other by peasants. These character types can be the basis of a great story, comparing the differences in the lives and personalities of the two characters. It is epic, in that it follows the story of the sisters from birth until well into adulthood. The story covers a lot of ground, both in time and experience of the main characters. Think of something by Alex Hailey and the like. At more than 125,000 words, Love and Honor isn’t a quick read. Although I largely enjoyed the book, I did a double take when a new product took poor-girl Lana’s company from “a regional business” to a player nationally or internationally three different times, with no indication the company had fallen on hard times in between. And the two sisters were described as step-sisters in at least one spot, which wasn’t technically true (they’re half-sisters). But these are just nitpicking. Overall Love and Honor was a fun, entertaining, and at times, thought provoking read. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

Love and Money by Ruth Harris Plot - good, ending disappointing. Characters - two dimensional. No clear point of view makes them fake, not believable. Writing - poor. Mixing points of view between universal and third person points of views. The writer tells rather than shows. Recommendation: Not really.
