    When I began reading The Seven Sisters I had no idea it was to be part of a serieswhich is goodand badThis first book is not the story of seven sisters but just one of six adopted female babies who grow up as privileged children named for constellations at an amazing island home in Switzerland called Atlantisand when Pa Salt dies each of the six grown women are given a private letter with a secret clue to their pastMaia an astoundingly beautiful interpreter who translates books for authors is the oldest sister and the first to return to her roots to investigate her beginningsand what an excellent story she hasI truly did not want to put it downand the endingWhat????surprise surpriseAnyway all I can say is that this wonderful work of fictional romance has so much substance and interesting bits of past history that you won't want to stop reading and although parts of the romantic interludes were somewhat predictable I was never boredbut the worst part of it allseriouslyis waiting for Book 2 I want to read it now

    I guess I'm in the minority on this one because I hated it I'd pick it up to read then put it down again over and over till finally I tossed it on the bedside table with a disgusted fugeddaboudit that would've made my mother in law proud she's from New Yawk The characters are about as believable as the tooth fairy The mysterious father who adopted the 6 shallow and very annoying girls right down to the trusted live in housekeeper with a heart of gold were right out of a bad soap opera I guess since Brangelina made adopting from 3rd world countries chic that's what single white billionaires who live on an island in Switzerland do these days Not that any of his adult daughters know anything about the man which they say many times as they try to process his sudden and mysterious death burial at sea come on this has Days of Our Lives written all over itBottom line there's just so many good books out there to read that you don't want to waste your time on this one it's a stinker

    This book was recommended by a friend but I couldn't push through reading than 100 pages It started out well but I had to stop after reading one implausible scene after another I shouldn't have read past the part of the book where Pa Salt adopts a baby girl and brings her to his island called what else Atlantis leaving her in the care of her guardian before flying off to parts unknown repeating that five times for a total of six adopted baby girls Really? Pa Salt dies suddenly and is buried at sea before any of his adult daughters are informed of his death Seriously??? I'll spare you the details of the other ridiculous plot lines Maybe there's something wrong with methis is a highly rated book but I felt as if I was reading a Harleuin romance novel


  5. Deborah Pickstone Deborah Pickstone says:

    Poor trite writing The characters spoke to one another as if they barely knew one another despite being a family; I know this is not impossible but who wants to read it? The plot was improbable and set out several false trails that were never developed or explained Our heroine was wet and self pitying I don't mind chick lit if the writing is punchy but I won't be reading this writer again Frankly my dears I was bored But I completed it so as to be sure of my opinion for future reference

    The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley is book 1 in the seven sisters seriesIt's a different kind of read for me but I really enjoyed it no I loved it ♥️It's a simple story of seven adopted sister's finding out who and where they come from as their rich adoptive father has passed and left them each an envelope with a letter and some coordinatesEach book is for a different sister this one is about Maia D'Aplièse the oldestIt's takes heryou from Switzerland to Rio to Paris and back and of course there's a HEA 😏It also flips between now and many many years before whilst taking heryou on a wonderful sometimes heartbreaking ride to find the truthI must admit there are a few uestions I'd like an answer to but there are 5 other books yetI'm definitely recommending this 📖

Take a trip down to the tropical paradise Brazil and the romantic city Paris with Lucinda Riley's new book that unfolds the journey of a woman searching for her roots Courtesy Thanks to the author's publicist for giving me an opportunity to read and review her book

    The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley is the first book in a new series The rich Pa Salt who has six adopted adult daughters mysteriously added to his single parent family under circumstances uniue and never explained to each one has died Just as mysteriously his body has been whisked away and dropped into the ocean in a lead lined coffin leaving the grief stricken women who gather at their opulent Swiss lakeside home with no real closure They are left however with trust funds the locations of their births a letter to each from their father and a clue to their identity if they wish to follow up which of course they will because that's the centre most theme of this seriesThe sisters are named for the stars of the Pleides Constellation used by sailors to find their way Maia the eldest begins her search by travelling to Rio di Janero Brazil This novel and I will assume those to come will fit into the genre of women's romantic fiction and will be enjoyed by these aficionados Riley does a terrific job of switching eras between the related subplots and fictionalizing the history of the creation of Cristos the huge statue outside Rio to make it part of the texture of her worldly and very romantic tale Present day Maia as with many of this type of genre's protagonists and her sisters are irritatingly reticent in their decision making starting with looking for their ancestry Maia is unbecomingly hesitant and less than resourceful until a handsome historian does the work for her in actively researching leads Her 1920’s counterpart Bel actually has spunk than she does Ah well Pieces of the mystery remain unsolved as the novel moves to Ally the next sister Riley has great techniue and a formula that works for her and obviously with its 416 rating her faithful following I think that I'm becoming a bit underwhelmed with this genre a fault of sheer familiarity through exposure to earlier authors' eually good efforts and which I in my younger years I read in great uantity My young self would enthusiastically rate this 400 at least but my jaded less impressed self says I liked it but I'm not going to follow the series It was okay Which means a rating of 300 stars
